Summary:
Concealed weapons permits. Modifies the criteria for issuance of a permit. Under current law, an applicant must demonstrate a need for the permit. The bill would require issuance of a permit unless a disqualifying event has occurred (e.g., the person was convicted of a felony, is an illegal alien, was adjudicated incompetent, was involuntarily committed, is subject to a protective order, is alleged to intend to unlawfully use the weapon to endanger others, etc.). The bill also specifies certain identifying information which must be included in the permit. An applicant denied a permit who successfully appeals the denial is entitled to reimbursement for costs from the Commonwealth. The bill allows the clerk to charge a fee of $10 for costs incurred in connection with a permit application. Local law-enforcement agencies may charge up to $25 for conducting an investigation pursuant to the section, and the State Police may charge up to $5 for processing the application. This bill is identical to SB 744.
