Finally did it today, applied and received my firearms carry permit. I'm surprised how easy it was. Just filled out an application I printed out from an online website, went to the Sheriff's Office on the first floor of the Courthouse in Doylestown, plunked down a $20 bill, got my photo ID, and that was that. Easy-Squeezy. The only other person there was an older lady, I would have thought I'd be waiting in line.

Some of the questions on the application were laughable, like "IS YOUR CHARACTER AND REPUTATION SUCH THAT YOU WOULD BE LIKELY TO ACT IN A MANNER DANGEROUS TO PUBLIC SAFETY?"

Anyhow here is the link if anyone is interested:

Some time ago I asked dumbar to find a case where someone with a CCP in Bucks County caused a problem and after sputtering and posting a bunch of trash he finally gave up. There doesn't seem to be a case on record where there has been a problem.

I've had guns in my home for years, just not a carry permit.

Any luck finding ammo? It's tough to find these days.

I hesitate to say it, but I haven't even fired the guns in years and still have the original ammo. I know that's not too smart. I wasn't aware of a supply problem with bullets. I thought they were easy to get at sporting goods and gun shops.

Why do you feel it's necessary to carry a gun? And just you have the permit, will you actually carry a gun while shopping? It may be legal, but it's not socially acceptable.

Actually the Duke carries almost everywhere, and since it is concealed no one knows. So how is that Socially unacceptable? Most of my friends that know, feel safer around me. With all the nuts running around I just may need it sometime.

Why do you feel like walking around defenseless? I want to keep a weapon in my car for self-defense from carjackers. I also work many nights alone at my company and often take large deposits to the bank. It may not be socially acceptable to you, but it's quite common. If I take it shopping, I might use it to save someone's life - maybe even yours.

Joe?

You mean that liberal, socially unacceptable, Brian "I still love in my daddy's basement" Kline.

How can you get baited by a nut anyway?!

I don't blame you one bit for having a concealed permit. With all the nuts and druggies out there these days, it only makes sense to want to protect yourself.

Maybe Kline can walk around with a 'gun free zone' t-shirt on to make himself appear non-threatening to some car jacker.

I don't carry, but I keep my 12 gauge shotgun next to my bed at night. can't miss in the dark with one of these.

Interesting that he thinks it's "socially unacceptable" for someone to exercise his legal right to self-defense, but it's perfectly acceptable for an adult -otherwise capable of holding down a job- refusing to work "below his education level" and instead living off the sweat of people who do. God help us if that's what our society ever considers "acceptable."

You live and work in Milford Twp. You feel threatened out there? I hope you never get involved in a gunfight. Based upon your own admission of not firing a gun in years, you're probably not a good shot. Police never recommend confronting someone using a gun in a criminal act. You or someone else could get killed or injured.

What would you know about firing a gun, Joe Lilyliver? Several cars were broken into in Milford last week, in case you didn't see that in the newspaper.

Someone could get killed or injured? No shit, Sherlock. Someone breaks into my house, they get a face full of buckshot. Castle Doctrine.

You can put your "gun free zone" sign out in your front yard. Let us know how that works out for you.

and you forget that State law shields concealed carry permit owners who have their permit revoked from disclosure.
the argument from some of the "yosemite sam" types is that public knowledge of a denial/revoking of the ccp somehow makes them vulnerable.

the numbers of people who have had their permits revoked is available on the state level but not the reasons.
the claim"There doesn't seem to be a case on record where there has been a problem."
is laughable.
do you really believe that not one permit holder in Bucks county has NOT used a firearm illegally?

Put the dirt on a tarp. It will be easier to cover yourself in the hole your digging.

Polling has consistently shown the majority of Americans support universal background checks. And keep in mind, the percentage of Americans who own guns is decreasing every year.

In regards to conceal carry, I don't see the need. It's kind of embarrassing to be afraid to walk the streets of Quakertown or any other Upper Bucks municipality. Are you scared of your own shadow? You would wet your pants in some of the 'hoods I have walked through at night unscathed.
