Thread: Mass. non resident ccw permit

  1. #11
    Maine honors only three states, all of which issue only to residents: Delaware, South Dakota, and Louisiana. (Figure that one out.) Maine does issue non-resident permits, and they're not hard to get, but they don't help in the east except in Delaware.

    Oddly, New Hampshire and Maine don't honor each other's permits.

  3. I have permits for NH and Maine....Florida too....all were fairly easy to get.

    Mass....my birth state is problematic to say the least for any non-resident....tough for residents nearly impossible for non-residents unless you really know people and/or you have some super legit reason for it.....business etc.

    Personally I wouldn't hold much hope for you....if you have luck let group know it would be interesting to hear.

    I border NY and same issues with that state....getting a permit is hard if not impossible for non-residents....and then you have to deal with NYC permits on top of it.

    cheers

    Yeah Ive been making some calls and talking with others about it and I dont think its worth the headache or the risk of paying the non refundable fee to only be denied. Im just going to grab the Maine and N.H. and call it good. Maybe the Utah too just because that will cover me in Washington state. Thanks for all the info.

    How long did it take you to get your Maine and N.H.? Was it as simple as i sounds?

    both Maine and NH took about the same amount of time....approximately 90days or so....florida was longer though they were more repsonsive to inquiries about status etc.

    Good Luck

    All this crap of having to get multiple permits really sucks. We are so overdue for passing a national ccw reciprication law. I long for that day. Ahh the freedom it would bring.

    All states honor my license to operate a motor vehicle, and they have been proven to be more deadly than firearms in most situations... I agree that there should be one registry for firearms ownership, with Just the level of "Yes I have one and yes I keep it with me". The rest of the stuff should be taken care of by a board made up of elected officials who simply monitor that no one is abusing their right to bear arms. None of this “what type of firearm can be had in what state”, “how many rounds in the magazine” BS... A Self monitoring system of firearms owners whose charter is to make sure that the God Given Right is not being abused by people intent on using firearms for crime or infringing on the rights of others. Period... KIS (Keep It Simple) Method... Thoughts and opinions are welcome…

    A central registry that keeps track of everyone that owns a firearm? That sounds like an anti-2d Amendment dream come true.

    As for the elected officials that make sure nobody is abusing their right, I saw a post by someone that says that carrying in a glovebox is stupid and shouldn't be legal. I think it is fine and in fact think you should be able to carry anywhere you want in your vehicle. Who decides which one is abusing their right? Do you know that the 1st amendment protects both Tom Clancy's "The Hunt for Red October" and Joe Smut's latest bit of pornography? Since it is a 'right' nobody gets to decide how it is exercised. We may not like or agree with how they exercise it but if we deny someone's right to do something we hate we're defenseless when then go after something we think is just fine since the precedent has been made.

    The thing is we've been on the defensive so long about our rights that we've decided that if we offer to self-govern or limit we'll be more palatable to the anti-gun forces. The truth is we'll never satisfy a group that is intent on total disarmament of the civilian population and all forms of self-government will only make their job easier in the long run.

    Following the "k.i.s.s." (keep it simple stupid) concept, at this point in the game I would think mandating state reciprocity, like they do for drivers licenses, would seem to be the easiest route to take. I think Senator Thunes' attempt in July of this year was a good idea and it was close to passing I believe. Just 2 votes shy I think. His bill was simple and right to the point.

    I’m eager to see when the next attempt will be made at passing something like that. Especially after the s.c.o.t.u.s. hears the Chicago handgun- ban case. If that goes in our favor I’m hoping it will give us the momentum to get something like national reciprocity to pass the next time around.

    Anybody have any idea of when another attempt at passing a reciprocity bill might be made?

    considering the current administration....and the liberal congress to boot....I doubt anything will happen with gun laws that would be considered positive within this group. Best we can hope for is that they do nothing...honestly I would be happy with just that.
