A Pennsylvania State Constable is an office held in Pennsylvania. It is the constable's job to enforce the law and carry it out, just the same as the job of district attorneys, sheriffs and the police generally" (see tn r» Act 147 of 1990, 528 Pa., at470, 598 A.2d 9S5). In fact, Pennsylvania constables have the right in Pennsylvania to arrest by warrant anywhere in the commonwealth, and to conduct warrantless arrests for felonies and breaches of the peace, including warrantless arrests for felony violations of the drug laws (see Commonwealth v. Taylor, 450 Pa. Super. 583, 596, 677 A.2d 846,852 ). They also have statutory powers of arrest in certain situations (see e.g. 32 P.S. S582; S3 P.S. §13349. Moreover, they are exempt from the need to have a carry license for a firearm in the state of Pennsylvania, and are covered under House Bill 218, known as the National Carry Act, pursant to 18 Pa.CS. § 6106.

    The Republican Party does not perceive how many his failure will make to vote more correctly than they would have them. They have counted the votes of Pennsylvania & Co., but they have not correctly counted Captain Brown’s vote. He has taken the wind out of their sails,—the little wind they had,—and they may as well lie to and repair.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    There is one consolation in being sick; and that is the possibility that you may recover to a better state than you were ever in before.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
