    Something I don't understand. Here in Tennessee, it is the state that is the authority (issue, deny, revoke, etc.), why is that not the case in Pennsylvania?

    Correct me if I'm wrong on this, but would that not stop the apparent silliness, dishonesty, and/or vindictiveness seen with permits issued in Philadelphia?

    Charge everyone who made this new illegal law with a mis.
    "No state shall convert a liberty to a privilege, license it, and charge a fee therefor.- Murdock vs Pennsylvania 319 US 105

    ...If the state converts a right into a privelege, the citizen can ignore the license and fee and engage in the right... with impunity.
    - Shuttleworth vs City of Birmingham, Alabama 317 US 262

    Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no legislation which would abrogate them.
    - Miranda vs Arizona 384 US 436

    In PA it is the individual county sheriff...or in the case of "City of the First Class" the Chief of Police...that issues the license. In a Shall Issue state, it should not matter who issues when the requirements are the same throughout the state. But as stated in the video, Philly thinks they are above the law and creates their own reasons for denial/revocation.
