There is no licensing in PA except for the concealed carry permit. All you need to do is show up and you're perfectly legal in PA. The concealed carry permits are issued in the county by the sheriff's department.

You're moving to an entirely new world when it comes to firearms relative to NYC.

PA is like the wild west compared to NY & NJ. I grew up in PA and look forward to moving back.

It's a law that you have to notify NYPD that you're moving out? I wouldn't tell 'em. If they need to know that, let 'em look for you.

This column answers some questions about the new Draconian gun laws of NY. It's bad. real bad

Quote:
I spent yesterday reading through the text of New York’s new gun bill, and talking to state officials about what its various provisions mean for gun owners.

Below is an FAQ about the bill. If you have an additional question, leave it in the comments section or go to my FB page. I’ll do my best to answer it.
But not yours of course. And you are getting out. Just do what the Colts did to Baltimore in 1983. Pack up and move quietly at 2 O'Clock in the morning and find freedom in Pennsylvania.

Of course you are not a traitor like they were. Just exercising your unalienable rights.

Seriously,IANAL. One will be along shortly to clarify. I do like 2ndsojourn's opinion

Welcome to freedom, for now anyway.

Just click on PA. It is very easy to get a CCW permit if you have a clean record. No licenses are required to just buy or own guns however.

Really, why? I moved from the city years and years ago and never told the NYPD I was moving. No ones business but your own as to where you are going. Why on earth would you want to open Pandora's Box

And you'll have a couple of good REALLY local gunshows to visit. Not something you can easily say in NYC.

Legally put guns in car, drive to new residence in PA. Put your guns in new house.

Go to Sheriff, apply for License to Carry Firearms. Get license as this is shall issue state.

Buy a holster.

Enjoy freedom.

Congratulations on you move.

Well, I believe you have to wait a few months before you go to the sheriff's office. You also have to prove you are a resident. Registering to vote and a driver's license will do. Costs $20.
