What Laws Should a Gun Owner in Pennsylvania be Aware Of?

In the state of Pennsylvania, most people are permitted to possesses a firearm provided that they have not been convicted of a previous felony. However if one wishes to carry a concealed weapon, a permit is nearly always required. For those Pennsylvania gun owners who live in close proximity to New Jersey, special care should be taken as New Jersey’s gun laws are extremely harsh and your Pennsylvania concealed carry permit is not valid in New Jersey.

Aside from this important item to be aware of, other gun laws that must be complied with in the state of Pennsylvania include:

  • PA C.S. 18-6106 Firearms Requiring a License to Carry —  It is considered a third-degree felony if a weapon requiring a carry permit is carried by a person it is not registered to. The same offense is to be considered a first-degree misdemeanor if the gun is registered to the carrier.
  • PA C.S. 18- 610.2 Possession of a Gun with an Altered Serial Number – One may not have in his or her possession a gun that has had its serial number altered or modified in any way. A conviction under this statute can result in a second-degree felony and up to 10 years in prison.
  • PA C.S. 18- 6108 Cannot Carry a Firearm on the streets of Philadelphia – It is unlawful for an individual in Pennsylvania to carry a firearm on the streets of Philadelphia or other major cities in Pennsylvania. Only those who are licensed or exempt from this law are permitted to do so.
  • PA C.S. 18-6105 Individuals not Permitted to manufacture, sell, transfer or control a firearm – This law is concerned with individuals who have a previous criminal conviction. Most people who have been convicted of a felony or certain misdemeanors would need to be aware of this statute. Furthermore, some individuals who have not been convicted, like fugitives from justice, are also barred by this statute. A violation of this statute can result in a 2nd-degree felony charge and up to 10 years in prison.
