Good luck to you, I live in NJ and went to apply for a PA non-resident license but could not get one. I was told that because NJ issues permits and I did not have one that I could not get a PA non-resident permit. So I decided to get a FL non-resident permit and now I am able to carry in PA and several other states but doubt I will ever see the day that NJ will issue me a CCW.
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. ~ Thomas Jefferson
