I went online today to buy some 124gr 9mm FMJ bullets (not loaded ammunition). Well, I found out that most of the major sites no longer ship reloading components to MA. The Attorney General's office has been notifying out of state catalog companies that components are now considered ammunition, and as such can not be sold in MA without a license. Also the buyer has to have an LTC or FID. 'Cause you know, gang bangers reload!
Most companies can't or won't comply, so add reloading to the long list of restricted activities in our fair state. You can't buy high cap mags, you have to register your firearms, and you have to pay $100 every five years for your permit. You can't buy a new Glock, HK, Kimber, Colt, Ruger, etc. pistol here either. The AG's "rules" mandate guns safe for idiots.
As the law is being interpreted, having a "bullet" keychain could land you a felony conviction if you lack a LTC or FID.
I have to last here about a year longer, and then I'm leaving. Maybe NH, NC, or VT. No wonder the middle class is vacating MA in record numbers.
I just moved here from VT!!!
The money is good but the gun laws suck!!!
I am in western Mass where are you from???
