Knowing the laws and regulations of gun ownership is imperative for the safety of the owner and fellow citizens. While our courses provide detailed information regarding gun ownership, the legal requirements for handling and owning a gun, and general MA gun laws, it is the responsibility of the gun owner or potential gun owner to thoroughly understand the legal requirements specified below. When in doubt seek the proper counsel to avoid putting yourself outside the boundaries of the law.
Although our staff is knowledgeable about gun law, the law changes often, and while engaged in discussions with other knowledgeable citizens, you may even experience various interpretations of the same law. Since you are ultimately responsible for knowing the firearm laws in your community, we want to direct you to additional resources in the event you ever need to seek guidance on specific issues.
