    When the man with the handcuffs and badge decides to arrest you, his word goes!

    When you get to hash it out in court, the AG's opinion vs. the cop's opinion get weighed by the judge.

    Not a good situation to be in.

    Banana republic? Yes!

    I spoke with someone in the AG's office today. He suggests that no one with a non-resident permit (from any state) carry within PA. I was also told that there is nothing the AG can do about how the state police are interpreting the legislation. What's interesting is in PA the AG does not report to the governor as the state police do. He's suggestion, call / file complaints with the state police.

    After my conversation today, I will not carry until this gets resolved. Since it is up to interpretation even different judges can rule differently.

    As a follow up, I just spoke with some one in the SP. I was told (in a polite manor) we are not legal, you can do nothing about it, you will get arrested.

    Great, it is illegal because "we are the police and say so." Gotta love that one.

    Who tells the SP what is legal and illegal?

    Apparently the SP can interpret the law as they want to. In attempt to see how much trouble I can get myself in, I contacted the Governor.

    We'll see what happens...

    Well you can do something about it, get a non-res VA permit.

    I sent a request in for the paperwork, kind of annoyed that I need to get more fingerprints. What's interesting is that the AG said VA will have the same problem.

    I had an interesting conversation today with a Lt. Badger (spelling) from the PSP. He was a very nice guy and took time to look into this topic while I was on the phone with him. His take, he sees nothing in reciprocity agreement that would prevent a Florida non-resident from legally carrying in PA. He also stated that the Police can not deviate from what the AG states. He said feel free to carry, if it makes you feel better carry with you he information from the AG website.

    Kind of interesting everyone you talk to has a different answer. I'm still waiting on the email reply from my request to the governors office.


    Updated “note” on the PA AG web site:

    Note: It has come to the attention of the Office of Attorney General that there has been confusion over the applicability of Pennsylvania's reciprocal privileges with regard to the residency status of an individual who has been issued a valid license/permit.  It is the position of the Office of Attorney General that recognition within Pennsylvania is based on the issuance to an individual of a valid license/permit by the reciprocal contracting state, and not on the license/permit holder's place of residence.
