Summary as introduced:

Carrying concealed weapons; former attorneys for the Commonwealth and assistant attorneys for the Commonwealth. Exempts from the prohibition on carrying a concealed handgun a retired or resigned attorney for the Commonwealth or assistant attorney for the Commonwealth who (i) was not terminated for cause and served at least 10 years prior to his retirement or resignation; (ii) during the most recent 12-month period, has met, at his own expense, the standards for qualification in firearms training for active law-enforcement officers in the Commonwealth; (iii) carries with him written proof of consultation with and favorable review of the need to carry a concealed handgun issued by the attorney for the Commonwealth from whose office he retired or resigned; and (iv) meets the requirements of a "qualified retired law enforcement officer" pursuant to the federal Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 (18 U.S.C. § 926C). The bill provides that a retired or resigned attorney for the Commonwealth or assistant attorney for the Commonwealth who has received such proof of consultation and favorable review shall have the opportunity to annually participate, at his expense, in the same training and testing to carry firearms as is required of active law-enforcement officers in the Commonwealth.
