Glitch In Gun-permit System Fixed

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Pennsylvania State Police say a glitch in the state computer system that handles applications for concealed weapon permits is fixed.

State police spokeswoman Maria Finn said the problem was resolved Thursday afternoon, after four days of intermittent breakdowns that delayed permits for people who applied for them during that period. The computer problem prevented county sheriffs from uploading photographs and printing the concealed carry licenses.

The glitch didn’t affect the separate computer system that is used to conduct instant background checks on most gun purchases in Pennsylvania.
