FIREARMS DIVISION

The Lycoming County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for processing all applications for Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms (LTC). This license allows a person to carry a firearm concealed on their person or in a motor vehicle. The license is issued to a person who qualifies, based on a background investigation conducted by Pennsylvania Firearms Unit.  The Sheriff has 45 days to determine an individual’s eligibility to be issued an LTC. The license is valid for a period of 5 years. The license may be revoked at any time, by the Sheriff of the issuing County for reasons of misuse or criminal activity.

Application for a Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms can be obtained online (click here) .

This license does not authorize/exempt a person to carry a firearm for employment purposes.  There are exceptions as listed under Title 18 Section 6106 of the Pennsylvania Crimes Code – (Firearms not to be carried without a license).  You will be in violation of the law if you carry a firearm for employment purposes unless you are properly certified under Act 235 – Lethal Weapons Training Act.  This certification and information can be obtained directly from the Pennsylvania State Police.

All applicants are reminded that furnishing false information to law enforcement is a violation of Section 4904 of the Pennsylvania Crimes Code – Tile 18 (Unsworn Falsification to Authorities).  Any violation shall be dealt with according to law and prosecuted by this office.
