    Great story. Until I got to the "Police said the victim did have a gun permit for his firearm.". This is not possible since PA does not use "gun permits". We have a "license to carry firearm" (LTCF) which allows concealed carry and is not "for a firearm" but instead is for the person. In ones own home, or hotel room, an LTCF is not needed since open carry of guns, or guns in ones home, are allowed without any required "permit". Please know what you report before spreading misinformation.

      The terms "gun permit" were taken straight from the Swatara Township Police Department release. Taniel was only passing along the information given by police.
