The Pennsylvania State Police announced today, December 15, 2020 that Governor Tom Wolf has granted an additional extension to license to carry firearms permits. Permits which expired on March 19,2020 or later have been extended to March 31, 2021. The extension is necessary due to the closure of some county courthouses and sheriff's offices, as well as other protective measures being taken to limit the spread of COVID-19.
