There has been much litigation recently concerning the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms, and it promises to continue to be a “moving target” (pun intended!) in years to come. Massachusetts has comprehensive laws concerning firearms licensing which impact your rights considerably. Barring certain “disqualifications” (felony and OUI convictions, for example), the Chief of Police of the city/town of residence has considerable discretion in determining who is a “suitable person” to hold a license to carry (as opposed to a simple FID card for hunting or residential protection). There is an appeals process for anyone aggrieved by a denial, revocation or suspension. Northampton Law has years of experience dealing with these issues and will protect your constitutional right to bear arms.
