UPDATE: Wolf Admin. clarifies gun shop business guidance

News Talk 104.1 & 1600 submitted a question to Governor Wolf this afternoon during his press availability in regard to updating guidance for gun shop owners based on his order to close physical locations of non life sustaining businesses.
DCED Communications Deputy Director, Rachel Wrigley provided this response this evening:
“After analyzing the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Order which upheld the Governor’s and Secretary’s order closing businesses, including gun shops, the administration determined that it would be appropriate to clarify its guidance. Firearms dealers may operate physical businesses on a limited basis to complete only the portions of a sale/transfer that must be conducted in-person under the law, subject to the following restrictions:
1) all such sale/transfers will be conducted by individual appointment only so as to minimize social interactions and congregating of persons;
2) the dealer will comply with social distancing, sanitization of applicable area between appointments, and other mitigation measures to protect its employees and the public.”
A number of lawsuits have been filed as a result of the order issued by Governor Wolf to close physical locations of non life sustaining businesses.
