UPDATE: September 20, 2020

The Pennsylvania State Police announced that Governor Tom Wolf has granted an extension to license to carry firearms permits. Permits expired on March 19, 2020 or later have been extended to December 31, 2020. The extension is necessary because some sheriff's departments have been unable to conduct the necessary background investigations for license to carry renewal applications during the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic.
