Pennsylvania, the 11th most firearm-restrictive state in the nation, may not seem like the ideal place for gun owners. But Pittsburgh residents find themselves in a haven for guns. Although the gun laws are restrictive for many Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh citizens, the Pittsburgh area is the perfect place for gun owners to make the best use of their firearms.
