Burns: Outdoor ‘concealed carry’ seminar a success

Urges people to know their rights, firearm rules and regulations

LOWER YODER TWP, Sept.  23 – As a supporter of the Second Amendment, state Rep. Frank Burns always has the back of Cambria County gun owners – and wants to make sure they know their rights. On Tuesday, Burns hosted another highly successful concealed carry seminar with local law enforcement, with a near-capacity crowd at the St. Clair Tremont Club in Lower Yoder Township.

“I’ve always supported people’s constitutional right to bear arms, and these seminars help educate them on Pennsylvania gun laws,” Burns said. “As a Democrat who grew up in Cambria County, I’ve never forgotten who I am or where I came from. You can count on me to continue to protect the Second Amendment.”

With attendance limited to 250 due to COVID-19 restrictions, Burns said he and his staff will look at holding additional seminars to meet the public interest and demand. The seminar covered many topics, including gun training options, concealed carry, the Castle Doctrine and the stand-your-ground law.
