HARRISBURG – Reps. Jeff C Wheeland (R-Lycoming) and Garth Everett (R-Lycoming/Union) announced they are teaming up again in February to host Concealed Carry Seminars.

The first is Thursday, Feb. 15, at the Community Baptist Church, 1853 State Route 87 in Montoursville, and Thursday, Feb 22, at the Clinton Township Fire Company, 2311 State Route 54 Highway in Montgomery. Both seminars begin at 6 p.m.

All interested residents of the 83rd and 84th Legislative districts are invited to register to attend.

“Due to the popularity of these seminars, we are able to do this again in 2018,”said Wheeland. “There are a lot of misconceptions about Pennsylvania’s concealed carry laws, and the purpose of this seminar is to present people with the facts. The issues of the concealed carry law and the Pennsylvania Castle Doctrine will be explained in a concise manner so that residents can be safe.”

“These seminars are beneficial to Pennsylvania gun owners and we appreciate the time being taken by our law enforcement officials to help educate residents in our region,” said Everett.

Lycoming County Assistant District Attorney Martin Wade will discuss Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine and stand-your-ground laws, Lycoming County Sheriff Mark Lusk will explain rules and regulations surrounding licenses to carry firearms, and Pennsylvania State Trooper Angela Beiber will discuss how to safely interact with the police while carrying a firerarm. In addition, an officer from the Pennsylvania Game Commission will discuss carrying laws as they relate to hunting seasons.

Seating is limited and advance registration is required. Those interested in attending should contact Wheeland’s district office by calling (570) 321-1270, or via email at kmarshall@pahousegop.com, Everett’s district office by calling (570) 398-4476 or via email at kkoch@pahousegop.com.
