Philadelphia faces lawsuit for closing gun permit unit Infringing on Residents’ 2A Rights

Nov. 25, 2020 – Gun rights activist Colion Noir reacts on ‘Fox & Friends.’

The Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) filed a case in federal court accusing Philadelphia of infringing on residents’ Second Amendment rights on Friday after the city closed its permit process for at least three weeks. The gun-rights group requested a temporary restraining order Monday that would require the city to open its process back up and provide remote application options to residents, but it was denied. The next hearing in the case is scheduled for Nov. 30.

"We’re hoping to have the court rule that the shutdown of the Gun Permit Unit amounts to a total destruction of individuals’ right to bear arms outside of the home," Adam Kraut, director of legal strategy for FPC, told the Washington Free Beacon.

The shutdown comes even as other permitting offices in the city remain open. The three driver and photo license centers in Philadelphia have social distancing requirements but are open to the public, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation’s website.

"There is a mechanism that they could set up … in which they receive the applications, they process them, and then they either call the person down in person or … send them [a certification] via mail," Kraut said. "They could certainly accept applications by mail. They could accept applications by common carrier. They could even set up a locked drop box for people to physically drop off an application. There’s a whole bunch of alternatives that exist and there’s no indication that they’ve even considered them."

Surging demand for gun-carry permits amid coronavirus restrictions has created backlogs across Pennsylvania and the country at large. But Philadelphia has come under special scrutiny for its drawn-out application process, which resulted in year-long waits even before the current shutdown. Source Free Beacon (
