Is your character and reputation such that you would be likely to act in a manner dangerous to public safety?

Have you ever been convicted of an offense under the act of April 14, 1972 (P.L. 233, NO. 64) known as the Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act (CSDDCA)? (as provided in 18 PA.C.S. § 6109(e)(1)(ii), any Pennsylvania drug conviction under the CSDDCA is prohibiting for a license to carry.) 

Have you ever been convicted of a crime enumerated in § 6105(b), or do any of the conditions under § 6105(c) apply to you?  Click here for the list of offenses.

Have you ever been adjudicated delinquent for a crime enumerated in § 6105 or for an offense under the Controlled Substance, Drug, Device and Cosmetic Act?

Are you an individual who is a habitual drunkard, or who is addicted to or an unlawful user of marijuana or a stimulant, depressant, or narcotic drug?

Are you now charged with, or have you ever been convicted of a crime punishable by imprisonment for a term exceeding one year?  This is the maximum sentence you could have received, not the actual sentence you did receive.  (It does not include federal or state offenses pertaining to antitrust, unfair trade practices, restraints of trade, or regulation of business; or state offenses classified as misdemeanors and punishable by a term of imprisonment not exceeding two years.) 

Have you ever received a dishonorable discharge from the United States armed forces?
