Safety program dealing with concealed carry rights set

Venango County Sheriff Eric Foy will host a public safety program dealing with concealed carry rights from 8:15 to 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6, at Petrolia Lodge 363 in Oil City.

The program looks to inform residents about the rights and restrictions that come with a concealed carry permit.

The sheriff’s address will focus on guidelines and procedures for obtaining a concealed carry permit and will also touch on firearm safety, law enforcement encounters and issues surround the use of deadly force, a press release from the Pennsylvania Masons said.

The event is open to the public and the release notes that weapons will not be permitted in the lodge.
