Concealed carry seminar in South Huntingdon will cover Castle Doctrine, Pa. laws

Stephen Huba

Pennsylvania’s concealed carry laws and the Castle Doctrine will be the subject of a seminar Oct. 17 at the Turkeytown Volunteer Fire Department in South Huntingdon.

The seminar is being hosted by state Rep. Justin Walsh, R-Mt. Pleasant, and will be led by Kim Stolfer, president of Firearms Owners Against Crime.

“Whether you own a firearm or not, the material offered is valuable to better understand the commonwealth’s laws as they pertain to the ownership, possession and transportation of firearms. I always learn something new at each event,” Walsh said.

The workshop will run from 6-8 p.m. at the Turkeytown VFD Social Hall, 90 Supervisors Drive.

The Westmoreland County Mobile Unit will be on site to issue new or renew firearm permits to Westmoreland County residents at least 21 years old. Valid photo identification and $20 in cash or check are required.

The event is free, but space is limited. Residents should RSVP by calling Walsh’s office at 724-929-2655 or by filling out a form on his website at

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.
