    Firearm without a license. OK. Bought legally? PA has a background check for hand gun purchases right now. Bet he plea bargains the firearm charge. WE NEED MANDATORY JAIL FOR FIREARM IN A FELONY WITHOUT PLEA BARGAINS. WE NEED AN ADD 5 years (no parole) LAW. Legal gun owners do not do this sort of thing.
