    to have a photo license created and sign for it.

    I'll be so happy when this happens. Our county issues I odd size piece of paper license that is hard to keep intact. A credit card sized license will be great.

    Having a uniform picture ID is a good idea, but I don't see why it couldn't be done by the county office. In Arkansas when we turn in our paperwork there is a form giving the state police the permission to use the picture id from our drivers license on on our CC permit. It's a picture file on a data base. I imagine every state has them. I think you can also use an official passport ID picture. When we get our permit it's made from the same credit card type laminated plastic as our drivers license. Pennsylvania could do the same thing, though it would slow down the process considerably and add a little more bureaucracy.

    You should see my WV permit. The actual permit is a 5"7" piece of nice strong paper with all the nice information on it. They even emboss the state seal on it. Then, after you sign it, they go to the photocopier and make a reduced-sized copy for your wallet. The final step is to emboss this permit with the state seal and then laminate it. Oh, there is no picture, serial number, gun information, or any identifying information other than my name and address and expiration date. Rather lame in my opinion, actually.

    Pennsylvania is a state that loves to find ways to bleed its residents of their money. Hell in Luzerne county they just raised the taxes to 15% to pay for all the money lost through corruption by 18 county officials, that takes a big set !

    Some counties in Pa already do this.

    I don't think it would add any bureaucracy because we already have to go through the whole permit process anyway, it would just mean the counties would have to buy the machine to make the plastic permits.

    We don't have to list the pistols that we want to carry on our permit like Ny does.

    This is simply a flat-out bummer, on several levels, for several reasons.

    I don't know about the rest of PA, but Luzerne County has had that requirement since I first got my LTCF. That was back in 2004.

    I didn't know there were places that you could just apply for a LTCF and never show up.

    On a side note: TangoFoxtrot

    It's a cryin shame that the people that were charged with their crimes were either elected or appointed into their respective offices. You should maybe write your representative with your grievances instead of just posting them on the net. It will help the situation more than empty words they will never read.

    We don't have to list any firearms either. All of our counties already have the machines. They are required for drivers licenses.

    On another forum I infrequent, word is your existing permits are still good until the "expiration date" on it. There has been no "recall" on existing permits, just policy change from a specific date going forward.

    It's not a big deal to some but certainly a big deal to people like me who live 500+ miles from PA and won't be able to renew until I visit that state in person later this decade. I rather enjoyed having a PA permit and supporting that state.
