Description

Concealed handgun permits; disqualifications; residential mental health or substance abuse treatment. Provides that a person is disqualified from obtaining a concealed handgun permit if he has received mental health or substance abuse treatment in a residential setting within five years before or after the date of his application for the permit. Currently, such disqualification applies only if the treatment occurred within five years prior to the date of his application for the permit. The bill provides that the State Police, a local law-enforcement agency, or an attorney for the Commonwealth, upon receipt of information that a permit holder is disqualified because of such treatment, shall notify the court that issued the permit. If the court finds that the permit holder is in fact disqualified because of such treatment, the court shall revoke the permit. Read the Bill »
