Our's aren't draconian. Pa. is also now a Castle Doctrine state, so that is a good thing.
No issues with owning firearms. Carry permits are issued by each county sheriff's office. 24 states honor Pa.'s permits, not more because we don't have classroom requirements to get one. Utah non resident permits are available through instructors here in certain areas. Firearm restricted places are no different than any place else.
I've been a lifelong Western Pa. resident. After talking to residents of other states, our's isn't that bad at all in many ways.
