It's one of several things I miss about my home state.As everyone has said, MD could learn a thing or two about the process from PA. The thing that stands out to me is how welcoming PA is. MD makes you feel like scum for wanting a permit and PA treats you... well, like they are helping you exercise a right. There’s the “it’s easier than you think” wording on the permit website, super friendly staff at the York courthouse, accommodating hours, low cost, fast turnaround, and even a “congratulations“ email when you are approved.
Thank you Pennsylvania.
