While it is legal to carry a gun with proper documentation and gun licenses in Pennsylvania, there are certain instances where the possession of a firearm or other illegal

Possession of an unregistered gun
Possession of a stolen gun
Possession of an instrument of crime
Possession of a sawed-off shotgun or automatic weapon
While the possession of an illegal weapon is a serious crime in and
