    Answered . There is no mandatory minimum just for carrying an unlicensed firearm. The offense is governed by the uniform firearms act under sections 6106 and 6108 as codified in PA. 6108 applies only to phila county. You should hire a Phila criminal defense attorney who specializes in these type of cases.
