Under the heading “Can You Carry a Gun in Your Car in Massachusetts?”
In the statement: “Without an LTC, it is illegal to knowingly possess or control a firearm in a vehicle, whether loaded or unloaded, unless the possessor is at his or her residence or place of business or possesses the proper card or license for the firearm possessed.”
This would seem to imply that a person who is NOT an LTC holder may legally possess a firearm in Massachusetts provided that firearm is located solely at his/her residence (or place of business). This surprises me.
Can you confirm that this is the case? While I hold a valid LTC, I have always been under the impression that in MA, without an LTC, you couldn’t own a firearm ANYWHERE, under any conditions, at any time.
Thanks for the clarification/confirmation. And thanks for your excellent work and the sense of added security your organization offers to its members!
