Gun control is right up there with immigration and marijuana as one of the most highly controversial topics in Pennsylvania and throughout the nation. You may be among those who staunchly defend the right to bear arms and perhaps have one or more firearms in your home. Whether you own guns for hunting purposes or enjoy target shooting as a hobby, or you are in the process of obtaining a concealed carry license, the more you know ahead of time about Pennsylvania gun laws, the better.
This state has some of the strictest firearms regulations in the country. Some of those laws can be confusing and it's best to seek understanding if you're unsure about a particular regulation rather than risk facing weapons charges in court.
