Here's a 'whatif'.............
American Citizen but not presently permanent resident (living in Canada...we travel a lot for business, etc.)
Have permits requiring NICS from several states including PA.
Went to renew my PA permit and got a sticky note stating "We do not process Canadians".
Called and explained that I was a US Citizen and simply renewing my permit.
Sorry, we do not process Canadians and will not issue a PICS number to the sheriff.
Sheriff anxious to issue permit renewal.
AG not interested in hearing about any of it.... if I have any issues I need to file in court.
Keep looking over your shoulders guys. Something funny going on here.
I have gone over the statutes repeatedly and can find no reference to the need to be a PA nor a US resident (unlike FL where you must be a US resident to get a FL non-res permit).
In any event, this will all become moot in a year or two as our contracts here expire and we return stateside to live.
It is apparently the State Police that have set this rule (!?!?).
Our other non-res permits cover us in PA so we are not terribly concerned excepting that we do NOT believe that police or clerks should be setting the rules.
