A License to Carry (LTC) or Firearm Identification (FID) Card is required to possess or carry firearms in Massachusetts, unless otherwise exempt.


Is this basically saying that you have to get a license from the state just to own any firearm even within your own home? Is that even constitutional? Why my daughter wants to live there is beyond me.

I don't think Massachusetts is a "shall issue" state... with regards to LTC.... the laws in New Jersey, New York and Mass have gone nutty as I recall from what I have read...

Summary of Massachusetts Gun Laws

Massachusetts is a may-issue state with Licenses to Carry (LTC) issued at the local police station or, for non-residents, through the State Police Firearms Records Bureau.

A Firearm Identification (FID) card or LTC is required to purchase a firearm. Background checks are required to buy a handgun from a private individual, as the seller must verify the buyer’s Firearm Identification Card with the Department of Criminal Justice Information Services. A LTC is also required to buy ammunition. Although the registration of handguns isn’t required, all sellers of firearms must report firearms sales and transfers to the Department of Criminal Justice Information Services, which maintains comprehensive records of sales and transfers.

The former Class B license allows for only the open carry of non-large capacity firearms. Due to revisions to licensure, there may be Class B licenses that are still valid, however, no new Class B licenses are being issued.

Concealed carry is legal in Massachusetts for individuals who have a Massachusetts LTC or a formerly issued, valid Class A LTC. The minimum age is 21 years old, and LTCs are issued to residents and non-residents. LTCs require a state-approved firearms training course. Some areas are off-limits, including schools and airports. In terms of reciprocity, Massachusetts does not honor permits from any other states.

From what I’m reading a LTC/FID is required simply to possess, even in the home. Way I read it, move to Massachusetts and take your guns, and you’re automatically a criminal unless you get a non-resident LTC/FID ahead of time. loco

Spoke with my lawyer (gotta use that pre-paid legal for something) and he confirmed it.
