Preserving Your Right to Bear Arms in Massachusetts
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has one of the toughest gun laws in the United States. In fact, the governor signed a strong bill reinforcing the statewide anti-gun trend. This law allows the local chief of police to revoke your license to bear arms if you have a criminal record.

Revoking an FID Card for Past Criminal Conviction
If you’ve ever been convicted of a juvenile crime or misdemeanor or felony crime, your Constitutional right to bear arms may be disregarded and your gun ownership placed in jeopardy. When your Firearms Identification Card (FID), also known as your license to carry (LTC), is due for renewal, your license may be revoked for past crimes based on the police chief’s discretion. We have seen this happen and have tenaciously worked on behalf of our clients to have their gun rights restored and their records cleared. For example, one of our recent clients is a respected, retired, honorably discharged veteran whose Second Amendment gun rights were revoked due to past criminal activity. The “activity” cited was an arrest for involvement in a bar fight in the 1950s when he was a young man. Our attorneys were able to successfully return the right to bear arms to this American veteran.
