I haven't been following the story because it's on the news all the time in Philly. Someone is always shooting someone else every night. I end up tuning it out after a while.
The City of Philadelphia is not friendly to anyone carrying a gun. Open carry is legal in Philly only if you have a LTCF.
It doesn't matter if the guy had the gun in a case or not. He's allowed to transport it to and from a range,gun shop, mom's house, etc. There also are no brandishing laws in the state of Pennsylvania.
This is the kind of BS that keeps me from doing anything in Philly if I can avoid it.
