Massachusetts Background Check and Gun Law

Massachusetts Law requires firearm owners to be licensed through their local Police Department or the Massachusetts State Police if no local licensing authority is available. A license is required by state law for buying firearms and ammunition. An applicant must have passed a State approved firearm safety course before applying for a license.
 
All applications, interviews, fees, and fingerprinting are done at the local Police Department then sent electronically to the Massachusetts Criminal History Board for the mandatory background checks, and processing. All approved applicants will receive their license from the issuing Police Department. All licensing information is stored by the Criminal History Board. Non residents who are planning on carrying in the state must apply for a temporary LTC through the State Police before their travel.
 
There are five different types of Firearm licenses issued in the state:
 
RFID: The Restricted Firearm Identification License (FID), only allows carrying of mace or pepper spray.
Fire arms ID (FID): Only allowed long rifles and mace/pepper spray.
 
Class B: Only allows the purchase of long rifles and hand guns with a capacity of no more than 10 rounds, does not allow the holder to carry a fire arm concealed, when transporting fire arms it must be locked and inaccessible as well as separate from ammunition.
 
Class A: This license allows purchase any fire arm legal in the state of Mass, are authorized to own fire arms holding greater than 10 rounds, and can carry a loaded concealed fire arm unless restrictions are place on the license by Chief of Police of the issuing town, if the Class A is restricted to Hunting and Sport or Target and Hunting, it carries the same restrictions as a Class B, with the exception of owning large capacity.
The definition of the restrictions on a Class A is on a town by town basis and is set by the Chief of Police of the issuing town, there is no uniform state definition with regards to the restrictions placed on a Class A, they are different on a town to town basis.
 
The final license is only issued for "machine guns."
 
A license to possess or carry a machine gun may be issued only to a firearm instructor certified by the Criminal Justice Training Council for the sole purpose of firearm instruction to police personnel, or to a bona fide collector of firearms upon application or renewal of such license.
 
A "bona fide collector of firearms," for the purpose of issuance of a machine gun license, shall be defined as an individual who acquires firearms for such lawful purposes as historical significance, display, research, lecturing, demonstration, test firing, investment or other like purpose.
 
For the purpose of issuance of a machine gun license, the acquisition of firearms for sporting use or for use as an offensive or defensive weapon shall not qualify an applicant as a bona fide collector of firearms.
 
All private sales are required to be registered through an FA-10 form with the Criminal History Board, Firearm Records division. The state has an assault weapons ban similar to the expired Federal ban. Massachusetts is a "may issue" state and all classes of LTCs, are issued in a highly discretionary manner.
 
FIDs are "Shall issue", except if the applicant fails a background check. Massachusetts law does not recognize the Firearm Owners Protection Act. State law requires all firearms to be stored in a locked container, or with a trigger lock. If in a vehicle, firearm must be carried in the trunk of the vehicle in a locked container, unless the licensee has a Class A unrestricted license, in which case the firearm must be under his direct control. Any firearms that are found to be unsecured may be confiscated by law enforcement officers and license may be revoked. In the event a license is revoked for any reason, law enforcement will confiscate all weapons and store for 1 year before destroying them unless the revoked licensee transfers ownership to a properly licensed party who then claims the firearms.
