Today is the 60th day since I have applied for my LTC class A here in MA. I have read the laws and they state that a decision must be made within 40 days.
The day I applied I was told it would take right around 70 days for a decision. My question is should I just sit it out and wait or maybe make a phone call to see what is the current status of my LTC.
I do not want to start any problems with the permit. And really am not in a big hurry to get it. Except for the fact that I have 5 guns waiting to be picked up at the police station. I inherited these guns back in Febuary and am getting concerened that someting may happen to them before I get to pick them up. I was told when I applied that they would indeed still be there and that they would not be put into bonded storage.
Just looking for a bit of advice/input on this.
Google northeastshooters... you will probably get a better response there.
I dropped my application off Wednesday evening and got a call Thursday (yesterday) morning with their decision. They had me come down early afternoon for the interview. The paperwork has already been sent to Boston for the permit. I don't think this is the norm though... a buddy of mine who applied in North Reading had to wait a month before they contacted him for an interview.
Only problem is I was issued a class A with restrictions for target, hunting, and employment.. and I had to fight for that... which is unfortunately the norm in Peabody.
That being said - I see NO reason why it would take 70 days to make a decision. Some of the the Cheifs in this state are crooks for taking away our rights... and they're probably looking or waiting for a reason to do so. Good luck
As I recollect, the license for personal defense is issued as soon as one of the following conditions are met:
1 - Within 30 days after they have received a certified copy of your death certificate.
2 - The National Weather Service certifies 1 week of temperatures of less than 32 degrees F have occurred in the devil's throne room.
