Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
Welcome to the forum. You might've answered your question in your question..."under current PA law" I would consult a lawyer and see what the options are for fixing your situation so you can own a gun there. But, the answer may ultimately be to leave a state that would take away your rights due to a misdemeanor.
