Police will be able to use the new concealed carry law to buy guns and ammunition from people with valid permits, PA State Police said.
The move follows a decision by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court earlier this month that upheld the constitutionality of the state’s gun ban.
PENNSYLVANIA LAW TO IMPROVE PROPERTY RIGHTS The Pennsylvania Senate approved a bill to expand the state property rights law to include personal property.
Lawmakers passed the bill, which was approved by a voice vote last week, in the wake of the fatal shooting of George Scott in October, in which he was shot during a car chase.
House Bill 3141 would also add more than 10,000 people to the list of people whose rights would be protected under the law.
A total of 12 states already have some form of firearm carry laws, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
If passed by the state House, the bill would go to the full House for consideration, but it has no chance of being signed into law.
Lawmakers in Pennsylvania are also considering allowing gun owners with concealed carry permits to sell their guns and purchase ammunition from other gun owners, the Associated Press reports.
