PHILAEDLPHIA — A state senator whose district is more than 150 miles away from Philadelphia has proposed gun legislation that's targeted at loosening the city's process for issuing concealed-handgun permits.
Sen. Richard Alloway II, R-Chambersburg, circulated a memo to search for cosponsors this week for a bill that would allow state residents to get their permit to carry a concealed weapon from a county adjacent to their home county.
