Concealed Handgun Charges and Your Rights in Pennsylvania

30 Years of Criminal Defense Experience in Media, Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania, like many other states, requires individuals to obtain a permit if they wish to carry a concealed weapon. Even if you do not use the weapon you have committed a crime if you carry a concealed weapon, and the crime is not considered minor, it is considered a felony, as stated in the applicable statute:

Any person who carries a firearm in any vehicle or any person who carries a firearm concealed on or about his person, except in his place of abode or fixed place of business, without a valid and lawfully issued license under this chapter commits a felony of the third degree.

If you have been charged with carrying a concealed handgun without a permit in Pennsylvania, it is important that you obtain aggressive and knowledgeable legal assistance in fighting your charges.
