Concealed carry seminar scheduled in West Newton
Westmoreland County residents interested in learning about Pennsylvania’s concealed carry laws can attend a free seminar Thursday sponsored by state Rep. Justin Walsh (R-Rostraver).
Walsh sponsored a similar seminar in January.
Speakers will include Kim Stolfer, president of Firearm Owners Against Crime, as well as a Pennsylvania state trooper.
In addition to discussing concealed carry laws, the seminar will also address Pennsylvania’s “Castle Doctrine,” which outlines acceptable use of force to defend one’s home or vehicle.
“This seminar is always a popular event, and I’m glad to be able to offer it again,” Walsh said in a statement. “The information is helpful to everyone, whether you own a firearm or not. Please come with any questions you may have. I always learn something new each time.”
The Westmoreland County Mobile Unit will also be on site to renew or issue firearm permits. Residents at least 21 years old must bring photo identification and $20 in cash or check.
The seminar will be held 6 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Turkeytown Volunteer Fire Department Social Hall, 90 Supervisors Drive, West Newton. Residents should RSVP by Tuesday by calling Walsh’s office at 724-929-2655 or by filling out a form online at www.RepWalsh.com.
