Phila concealed carry

I heard that a pa concealed carry was not valid in phila. I looked but came up without finding the restriction. To the contrary, it seems phila is exempted from enforcing local gun laws. I am a md resident with a pa ccw permit. Can anyone steer me in the right direction?

Close.



OC is fine in all of PA without a permit except in cities of "First Class". Philadephia is the only place in PA that is one of those cities so you will need to have a valid PA LTCF to OC in Philly.

Yes, you can CC or OC in Philly but they both need an LTCF to do so.

100% correct.

ETA- OC with a LTCF is legal in Philly, but expect to be harassed by the Philly PD. I highly recommend carrying concealed to avoid the hassle.

You also need a LTCF to open carry during a state of emergency which is in effect due to the opioid crisis

As others have said highly recommended you conceal carry in Philly. Never had any issues. Open carry there will obviously draw more eyes and potentially phone calls on you. People in Philly aren't use to seeing openly carried firearms as a legal right.

I am Not a Lawyer

Pennsylvania has preemption that prohibits local jurisdictions from passing gun laws.

In spite of this some local jurisdictions like Philly pass gun laws and try to enforce them anyway. Until they lose a lawsuit for enforcing such laws, illegally.

So keep it concealed.

When I carried in Philly I also carried less expensive firearms in the event I was stopped while legally carrying and my firearm was unlawfully confiscated by Philly PD and I didn't want to hire a lawyer to get it back.
