im trying to find out the legalities surround pepper ball guns(self defense)here in Philadelphia and the local police wont give an answer because of liabilities. how can i figure out the law regarding these? will a lawyer charge just to answer a simple question?

Tried googling for you and found that pepper spray and stun guns ARE legal in PA - but nothing specific about carrying pepperball guns.
Suggest checking with:
a) local chapter of paint ball clubs / leagues: see what laws govern the use/carry/licensing (if any) for their guns. Yours will probably be the same (just the ammo is different).
b) local chapter of the NRA: bet they would know or could find out for you.
c) See if the state has a Hunter Education program and licensing system. Whilst your question is not directly in line with their mandate, I bet they would understand the gun laws well enough to offer an opinion.
Hope this helps.

As far as concealed or open carry, they are treated like any other gun.
