    Do folks from this forum, or any groups with which they are members, have the means/ability/interest to jump-start the bill fi it's in fact stalled?
    I'll keep looking for the current status and keep y'all posted.

    Hello Manderson2228, My name is Mark Shean, I have been giving the class all over the state of Ma. for LTC/FID now for eleven years, in that time I have run into many different ways things are done from town to town. On my website I have written some valuable information that many people have found useful in their quest to obtain a gun license. The police do have some 'leeway' when issuing a LTC, but they can also be over ridden by a judge through what is called a 'Petition for Judicial Review' if a person feels they are being wrongly denied or restricted. Have your mother go to my site at mafirearmsafety.com , at the top of the page she can find my 'Gun Sense' tab, click onto that, each article I write is numbered, scroll down to #13 and this will explain Petition for Judicial Review, also have her go to #19 'Reason Letter', this gives a template for anyone that feels they want to write the chief their reason for wanting an LTC for 'Any Lawful Purpose', it may not fit everyone to a tee but it can be 'tweeked' to fit your circumstance. She should probably read #19 first then proceed. I hope this is helpful, The things I write in my 'Gun Sense' series are from years of aquired experiance with firearms as an instructor as well as being involved in organized shooting sports since 1964. Sincerely.....good luck.

    If what you say is right, the possibility of getting a class A is a done deal, what town do you live in? Are you in Ma.?

    When a chief of police has a policy that excludes 'Any Lawful Purpose' as a reason for a class A license, it is because he has no intention of being reasonable. There can be no better reason, it covers the entire gambit for the law abiding public. He should be asked if 'any illegal intent' sounds better. A (petition for judicial review) can, in many cases over ride the police chief that is treating good people badly just because he wants to exert his 'power'. Treating good people badly does nothing to curb crime and is a disservice to the public. We have the real power to change this 'arbitrary discretion' by contacting our public servants, you know, the people we elect to 'represent' us, those servants. They need to be reminded from time to time that yes indeed they do work for us!

    I got it from the horses mouth that NO gun legislation will be dealt with because it's an election year. circle the wagons, and start fresh next month.

    The X police chief in Quincy was a real dirt bag. He outright said that nobody in the city needed a concealed carry. Refused to give one out under any circumstances (unless it was a wealthy buddy), and as far as I know, even people bringing lawyers in got nowhere with him. I can't help wonder now that he's no longer the chief, if HE turned in his permit? I was in the detectives department there one day picking up a recovered item stolen from my car, and heard a Captain SCREAMING at some guy on the phone that he "Wasn't getting no FKN gun permit." Glad I moved the hell out of there.

    The new Quincy police Chief is much more user friendly. I have given the class to quite a few people now that have not had any problem obtaining thier A LTC. The Chief in Weymouth was exactly like the old Quincy chief but got fired for some 'indecretions' that would get any of us peasents put in jail. The new Weymouth chief is much better also.

    Badly treating law abiding citizens trying only to do the right thing is a genuine disservice to the public and does nothing to prevent crime. Complain to your public servants to strip away 'arbitrary discretion' from police chiefs. Make it a shall issue state with the only criteria being a background check. End the dictator wanna be's once and for all.

    Not gonna happen. The Dems were awake and out in force for the mid terms. We only got Scott Brown elected because the moon and stars were aligned and the Dems were so far on their high horse they couldn't see the ground. 50 % of the residents proved beyond a shadow of doubt they are stupid by re electing the communist dictator in the state house. I definitely plan to bail out of this place, but til I do I'll continue making their lives miserable and WORK every day they're in office. The wife says I can retire when this mortgage is paid, and then I'll become a professional thorn in their side full time.

    Your probably correct, I wrote my reps from Plymouth area, Vinny DeMacedo (R) and Tom Obrian (D) a few years ago about 'arbitrary discretion' and even sent it certified mail, all I got back were two return signature cards and ZERO response otherwise, 'crickets'! You can read my well written three page letter from my June archives 2009 at mafirearmsafety.com if your interested, it at least deserved a 'go pound sand' from our exaulted servants.
