HARRISBURG (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - One Pennsylvania state lawmaker wants to do away with concealed-carry permits, arguing law-abiding citizens should be able to carry concealed firearms without further legal process.

Representative Aaron Bernstine of New Beaver, Lawrence County discussed his bill at Monday's annual gun rights rally in Harrisburg, according to the Beaver County Times.

Bernstine says it is unconstitutional to require residents who pass a criminal background check to take further steps for a concealed-carry license and that they should have the ability to carry a gun without getting a permit.

He thinks it will pass the legislature. It’s not clear if Governor Wolf would sign it.
