    Smile Mass update

    Well it has been a long time since I have posted on this site. I am posting with an update on the Mass LTC. Both my wife and myself applied for a Mass Non Resident LTC-A unrestricted in the state of Mass. Both of us were granted a Mass Non Resident TLC-A with the restriction of for “sporting”. In the state of Mass with this license we can carry a firearm in the trunk of our vehicle unloaded. A lot of good that permit would do if I needed it in a self defenses situation. The right tool for the job was locked in the truck of the car and the worst had happened. I did not want to have to live with guilt like that.
    So we both wrote a second letter to the director of the firearms bureau. This time he saw the light of reason. So now my wife and I both have Mass LTC-A “unrestricted”. This is not a post to give Mass a pat on the back for seeing the light. It is just to bring to light that I think that the states that a may issue state are seeing the writing on the wall. The oppressive state government don’t want to get sued if something was to happen to you. Oh wait they wrote in to the Mass laws that you can not sue the government of that state for not providing you protection, but they won’t let you protect yourself. I just wanted to let you all know that there is hope. Just keep writing them.

    I just wish they wouldn't charge a small fortune (annually) to possess a right to defend yourself....

    It's progress anyway. Glad for you and yours that you can be legitimately armed. Astonished that it has to be so difficult.

    Congrats for your tenacity...glad you got the unrestricted permit.

    Someone said it was expensive, but $100 for six years beats a lot of other states.

    - MA is ridiculous. I go there about 4 times a year and can't bring myself to drive up there annually for an interview and pay $100 every year to get a non-resident permit. On top of that, it seems that every town has a different law on knives. So I have to make sure I only carry a 2.5" knife at all times.

    The non resident is $100 for one year.

    The 6 years, $100 is only for the residents.

    The only deal here is if you are over 70 years old you get a 6 year dfor FREE.
