    Massachusetts Approved Firearms.

    The question came up about Massachusetts approved guns. This is the most current list I could find:

    http://www.mass.gov/Eeops/docs/chsb/...%2011-2008.pdf

    Search HERE for current lists.

    Massachusetts licensed dealers are limited as to what guns which they can sell to you. The dealer can only sell you handguns that comply with two standards - the law (see Chapter 140, section 123 of the Massachusetts General Law), and the regulations of the Attorney General (940 CMR 16.00).

    Commonwealth of Massachusetts
    Executive Office of Public Safety
    APPROVED FIREARMS ROSTER 04-2007
    This roster has been compiled in accordance with M.G.L. c.140; 131 and 501 CMR 7.00. It contains weapons determined by Massachusetts approved independent testing laboratories to have satisfactorily completed the testing requirements of M.G.L. c. 140; 123; clauses 18th; 19th; 20th; and 21st. The reports resulting from said tests were reviewed by the Gun Control Advisory Board and those makes and models listed herein were subsequently approved by the Executive Office of Public Safety as having complied with the statutory handgun testing provisions of M.G.L. c. 140; 123.
    Additions to this roster are likely to occur periodically; and dealers and law enforcement personnel should always utilize the most recent roster for purposes of determining statutory compliance. To find the most recent Approved Firearms Roster, go to the Criminal History Systems Board web site at http://www.mass.gov/chsb and click on Firearms Support Services.
    Pursuant to the requirements of 501 CMR 7.03; firearms dealers should note the following warning:
    TRANSFERS OF HANDGUNS ARE ALSO SUBJECT TO THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S HANDGUN SALES REGULATIONS; 940 C.M.R. 16.00 ET SEQ. FIREARMS ON THIS ROSTER DO NOT NECESSARILY COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S HANDGUN SALES REGULATIONS. INFORMATION ABOUT THOSE REGULATIONS CAN BE OBTAINED FROM THE OFFICE OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL AND CAN BE ACCESSED ON THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S WEBSITE; WWW.AGO.STATE.MA.US.
    The Attorney General is providing all licensed gun dealers in Massachusetts with specific information on how this Approved Firearms Roster relates to the Attorney General’s Handgun Sales Regulations (Enforcement Notice). Enforcement Notice; as well as other information regarding the Attorney General’s Handgun Sales Regulations; can be obtained at the Attorney General’s web site – http://www.ago.state.ma.us − and from the Office of the Attorney General.

    That's a pretty small list.

    Makes you glad to live in PA doesn't it?

    It gets worse. One has to have his FID card in order to buy ammo. The FID card holder is not allowed to buy ammo for pistol that they do not own. BTW, they lock all the dumpsters in the Boston area.

    What a sorry, sick situation.

    And what's to protect someone from buying a gun and then maybe finding out that at some point while he owns it, they don't strike it from the list of approved guns?!
    When a list has been made in the first place, the obvious corrolary is that items can be added, and items can be taken away.

    I wonder if they have outlawed the type of car that Eddie Kennedy was driving when he killed that young woman. His car has killed more people than my entire arsenal has. Sure glad I live a part of the country where you can get almost everything made. Is Mass. somewhere in Kalifornia? Maybe part of New York City.
    A person is justified in the use of deadly force, if such person reasonably believes deadly force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm to such person or a third person.

    What's really sad is that the Brady bunch, even with all those restrictions in place:

    May issue
    Limit on mag capacity
    Strict laws regarding what guns can be sold
    etc. etc.

    Still only rates MA as an A- state when it comes to gun control, just another display that even the strictest of gun control and enforcement isn't good enoug for them

    See HEREhttp://www.bradycampaign.org/legisla...tate.php?st=ma for the Brady's eval. of MA.

    This is not true. We have enough crazy laws here without people posting crap on the internet.


    Here's a really good link about guns you can't get in MA: http://www.fsguns.com/fsg_information.html

    Sorry for passing out bum info if is not true. Was in two different gun stores in MA where the clerks refused to sell ammo for pistol calibers the customer did not own. This was in 1995.

    Kimber

    The way I understand it. Kimber and others will not submit their guns for the testing process.
    Here is a great web page for Mass. gun owners

    No problem, I'm just edgey due to having to pay $700 for a used glock from the '90s *wink*
