HARRISBURG – Rep. Justin Walsh (R-Westmoreland) today announced he is sponsoring a concealed firearms seminar to give residents an opportunity to learn about Pennsylvania’s concealed carry laws and the Castle Doctrine.
The seminar will be held on Thursday, Oct. 17, from 6-8 p.m., at the Turkeytown Volunteer Fire Department Social Hall, 90 Supervisors Drive, West Newton.
“I’m pleased to be able to offer this informative seminar again,” Walsh said. “Whether you own a firearm or not, the material offered is valuable to better understand the Commonwealth’s laws as they pertain to the ownership, possession and transportation of firearms. I always learn something new at each event.”
Kim Stolfer, president of Firearms Owners Against Crime, will lead the presentation. The Westmoreland County Mobile Unit will be on site to issue new or renew firearm permits to Westmoreland County residents at least 21 years old. Valid photo identification and $20 in cash or check are required.
The event is free, but space is limited. Residents should RSVP by calling Walsh’s office at 724-929-2655 or by filling out a form on his website at RepWalsh.com
