I'm trying to do some research on background checks and was having trouble finding out when Massachusetts permit to buy firearms went into effect.

Anyone know?

Thank you.

Hmm, living in MA in the 70s I had a pistol permit and also a firearms ID card.

Thank you. It looks like 1968 is right

Nope, none of the above!

1968 was the start of the FID card and FA-10s, but LTC was around a lot longer than that.

For the history of gun licensing in MA, the best historical document is a Amicus Curie brief written by a friend/former client, Atty. Karen MacNutt (also one of the founding members of GOAL).

See page 5-10 of this document.

Learn something new every day. The LenS.

We should start a comprehensive MA law thread.


I created a MA gun law seminar that only deals with issues people in real life need to know about (most all of it does not cover what is supposed to be taught in the state mandated basic courses to get your licenses) and it takes 5+ hours. One of my students (an attorney) published just the MA gun laws, no annotations at all and it was 250 pages!

You could blow up one ARfcom's servers trying to create a "comprehensive MA law thread" and still not cover all of it.

Maybe a "Commonly Asked Questions" thread?


That is actually how I created my 5+ hour seminar. Questions that were commonly asked were the items I chose to focus on to serve that need.
