    Mass. Conceal carry laws and regulations?

    Anyone have an idea where to find a general source of where you can and cannot carry your firearm in Massachusetts? I know our laws are pretty unclear but would like some type of reference.

  3. Try Northeastshooters.com plenty of Ma. info there.

    Maybe handgunlaw.us

    Condolences that you have to deal with this in the People's Republic of MA...

  5. The best place to get info on Mass carry is the A. G.'s web sight, or call them. The way Mass. is I would not trust any info except straight from the horses ass, I mean mouth. To be safe you might want to carry a bat.

    Ask about a dozen cops, then average what they said. Or do what I did, tell the Commonwealth to kiss my asterisk and move to Texas.

    Good luck finding it, they are written pretty poorly. But as a general rule, no courthouses, schools. I go anywhere but those two places, unless it is a secure area like through airport security. As insane as MA is, you can carry concealed just about everywhere.

    May work in other states but definitely not in Massachusetts. Most cops don't even know the laws and the AG can't be bothered. Obviously schools and federal buildings but also any mass port airport. Bars and drinking establishments are ok here as long as you aren't under the influence with a *loaded* firearm. I should add that the law does not give a specific limit of alcohol levels like it does driving though so keep that in mind.

    Move. Find a state that enjoys constitutional open carry, lose the sexy (gag) Boston accent and carry your piece.

    Yes, you can't carry in a Massachusetts courthouse, but at least some courthouses have a place you can check in your pistol. They do this at the Worcester Courthouse and I imagine this is the case at all.

    Mass GOAL, the Gun Owners' Action League is a good resource for information as well as training.

    As for being under the influence of alcohol or drugs while carrying a loaded firearm, this will get you a mandatory 2 year change of address In Massachusetts.

    I moved from Mass. to Florida a year ago which has much more reasonable firearms laws.
