If you get your LTCF from one of the counties, ie. Lancaster. Is it only good in that county, or is it good for the entire state? Also, this isn't the same as a CCDW is it? Is it only good for open carry, and carrying in a vehicle, or do I have that wrong?
We were new to all this stuff not to long ago. And we are still learning as well.
Specifically a LTCF (License To Carry a Firearm) applies to only handguns. It is shall issue, or at least it's suppose to be. Some sheriffs seem to take it upon themselves to use their own discretion in issuing and revoking them without looking up the laws. I believe that residents have to go through their own county to get one but out of state can apply with any county.
And open carry is legal, just as it is here in DE. There is a restriction in Philly that you have to have a LTCF to carry openly. Dover is kind of like that in this state. But The biggest difference is that you need a LTCF to carry a loaded handgun a vehicle. Delaware doesn't require a CCDW for carry in a car, it just has to be in plain view.
But a LTCF does allow you to carry a handgun concealed. The CCDW allows us to carry more then just a handgun concealed. Anything that is described as a deadly weapon
can be carried concealed including long guns and other stuff like bombs. Although owning bombs is illegal.

What a shame that we have the two major political parties that believe the former.
