Concealed-carry law seminar set this month in Irwin

Paul Peirce

North Huntingdon Police Chief Robert Rizzo and Kim Stolfer, president of Firearm Owners Against Crime, are slated to be presenters at a Nov. 16 seminar in Irwin on Pennsylvania’s concealed-carry laws.

The free seminar will run from noon to 2 p.m. at VFW Post 781, 100 Billott Ave. and is sponsored by state Rep. George Dunbar, R-Penn Township.

“An important part of being a responsible gun owner is knowing our state’s firearm laws, including how and when to carry a concealed firearm,” Dunbar said.

”Whether you are considering applying for a permit or already have one, I encourage all District 56 firearm owners to come out and hear from the experts regarding both their rights and responsibilities,” he said in a news release.

Rizzo and Stolfer are expected to present facts on the law and answer questions about the state’s concealed carry process, the Castle Doctrine and other information regarding firearms safety and state gun laws.

Due to limited seating, interested individuals are advised to pre-register by calling Dunbar’s district office at 724-744-0305.

In addition to Penn Township, the 56th legislative district includes Irwin, Manor, North Huntingdon, North Irwin and Trafford and portions of Hempfield.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
