Carry, conceal requirements to be discussed
RANSHAW - State Rep. Kurt Masser (R-107) will host a seminar to discuss concealed carry gun requirements from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Brady Fire Company banquet hall.
The seminar will feature Northumberland County District Attorney Tony Rosini, Montour County Sheriff Ray Gerringer and Northumberland County Sheriff Robert Wolfe.
"We have certainly have gotten a lot of calls on concealed carry, especially when the Castle Doctrine passed," Masser said. "We just felt that we would try the seminar and see what the turnout will be like and give people the answers that they need."
Masser noted that concealed carry permits are "on the rise."
"We just want to make sure people are doing things the right way," he added.
Wolfe, who will be on hand at the conference with one of his staff members, will explain what one can expect when applying for a concealed carry permit.
"We will explain the process from beginning to end and what they can expect, what questions they need to answer and what they need to bring with them in order to obtain the carry concealed license," Wolfe said. "I will have forms to show people exactly what they look like" he added.
Wolfe described his office as "very active" with people coming in to get their licenses.
Wolfe will also have gun locks available at the seminar.
