NY, PA Counties Cooperate on Pistol Permit Issue
TOWANDA -- An agreement between sheriffs from neighboring counties could change who can carry a concealed weapon over the state line. The Bradford County sheriff's department announced a new plan which will allow its residents to apply for a non-resident pistol permit in Chemung County, New York. Some Bradford County residents started applying for their non-resident pistol permits even before the announcement Tuesday. For some of those folks, the New York state line is a short drive away. It's part of the reason why the Sheriff in Bradford County and Chemung County, New York worked together to come up with this new agreement.
