Is it alleged that PASP is releasing the information to the public? A lawyer does not get to decide what "the public" means, a judge will need to decide. Charge/sue a PASP officer and let us all see what happens.
I do not consider other non-LE emergency personnel (who likely have your medical data now) as "the public" nor do I consider a tow truck driver "the public" if he has been informed that LTCF data is confidential and not releasable to "the public."

(i) Confidentiality.--All information provided by the potential purchaser, transferee or applicant, including, but not limited to, the potential purchaser, transferee or applicant's name or identity, furnished by a potential purchaser or transferee under this section or any applicant for a license to carry a firearm as provided by section 6109 shall be confidential and not subject to public disclosure. In addition to any other sanction or penalty imposed by this chapter, any person, licensed dealer, State or local governmental agency or department that violates this subsection shall be liable in civil damages in the amount of $1,000 per occurrence or three times the actual damages incurred as a result of the violation, whichever is greater, as well as reasonable attorney fees.
If the PASP is violating the letter of the law then apply the applicable sanction. Will a PASP officer will be charged/sued?

"What good are laws when even the law-keepers refuse to obey them?"

"That is the question facing the law abiding citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as the State Police are actively breaking the law by having a persons LTCF disclosed to them whenever they pull over a driver. You see, a recent update to the NCIC was done that now couples the information so when they run your drivers license they will also be informed whether you have a license to carry a firearm."

"Only one problem…such a move is completely illegal."


Pittsburgh police also!!!:banghead::banghead:
