I was stopped by WBPD last night while walking and they took my firearm. I was told that Pennsylvania doesn't recognize out-of-state permits. They also told me to come in to HQ with my lawyer on Monday to pick up my firearm. Any ideas for a good lawyer? Anyone want to come with me on Monday? Thanks!
Obviously they are VERY incorrect about the out of state "permits". And no "permit" required to OC of course.
If you were commiting no crime they had 0 reason to seize your firearm. Sounds like another PD wanting some legal schooling.
I have your info from your PM and wil call.
Oddly, on Wed I was standing, talking to someone on the sidewalk, two buildings down from WBPD. Saw probably 6-7 patrol cars go by and no one said a word.
