The Wysox Concealed Carry Seminar, sponsored by Representative Tina Pickett (R-Bradford/Sullivan/Susquehanna), for October 9, has reached full seating capacity and reservations are now closed for the event.

Representative Pickett said, “We thank everyone who expressed an interest in attending these informative seminars. Due to the overwhelming response for the Wysox Concealed Carry Seminar and seats filling up quickly, we have added another seminar for Wysox on Saturday, October 18.”

The October 18 seminar will also be located at the Wysox Fire Hall, located along Lake Road in Wysox, and will run from 10 a.m. to noon. The October 9 and October 18 seminars will feature special guest speakers including Bradford County District Attorney Dan Barrett and Bradford County Sheriff C.J. Walters.

The speakers will present information regarding Pennsylvania’s firearms laws and will offer tips and advice on how to safely interact with police when carrying a firearm and the legal aspects of Pennsylvania’s Castle Doctrine, which allows a homeowner to use deadly force if necessary when threatened by an armed intruder

Seats are also still available for the October 2, seminar at the Hop Bottom Fire Hall in Hop Bottom, Susquehanna County. The speakers for the October 2 seminar will be Susquehanna County Sheriff Lance Benedict and the District Attorney Jason Legg.
