    has the state of emergency been dropped by the govoner

    during the snows last month the govoner posted a state of emergency. it takes the state a while to usually drop it. i might have read the laws wrong, but i thought there was no OC during a posted emergency? but maybe it was dropped by now. any info, or http will be appreciated.

    I believe a declared SoE is in effect for 90 days unless it is either extended or terminated.

    The one initiated on 4/23/12 has been terminated on May 10th.

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    18 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 6107(a) prohibits OC on public streets and public property during a state of emergency, with exceptions for persons "actively engaged" in self-defense and persons licensed to carry firearms or authorized to carry without a license. A violation of this statute is a misdemeanor of the first degree, 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 6119, which is punishable by up to 5 years in prison, 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. § 1104, which results in a lifetime disqualification from possessing firearms under federal law unless the person receives a pardon or expungement, see 18 U.S.C. §§ 921(a)(20) and 922(g)(1).

    I think you mean to type, "The antis try to present gun rights advocates as retarded inbred hicks."

    Also, there was no reason to be an @$$hole to the OP, unless you just enjoy being an @$$hole to people for no good reason.
