My father and I had a disagreement a while back about whether you were allowed to carry a concealed weapon in Philadelphia or Pittsburgh. He seems to be under the impression that those cities are to Pennsylvania what New York City is to New York or Detroit is to Michigan, where concealed carry is generally banned (permits do exist but are not issued to the public at large).
I contend that there is no such distinction (you can carry concealed with a permit in either place), and after looking around I have found nothing concrete to substantiate it either way. I did find the licensing authorities for both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia which lends creedence to my stance, but then again it could be that you have to apply separately to those cities to legally carry there. I just don’t know.
If I have to I will go down to the local State Police barracks, but if I can get a hookup here it would be preferable, and much less awkward than going into the cop shop to ask them a question that, as a license holder, I should already know the answer to. I’m pretty certain I’m right, but if I’m wrong I’d rather not be a criminal in the future.
