A Massachusetts approved Firearm Safety Course is required for all residents of Massachusetts who wish to obtain the FID or LTC. Anyone is eligible to take the safety course provided they are 15 years old and eligible to obtain a firearms license. In order to obtain a license, in general (and additional circumstances may apply), your record must be free of felonies and domestic abuse orders (209A). Also if you have been convicted of drunk driving from 1994 to the present, you will only be eligible to apply for a FID license 5 years after you have served out the sentence you were given.
Please note, if an applicant is seeking a License To Carry without restrictions, it is strongly recommended they complete a Basic Safety Course with a Live-Fire component or an advanced firearms safety course to increase proficiency with carrying a concealed handgun on his/her person for defense, either in the home or workplace.
No, unless you are under the age of 18.
New FID applicants must be 18 years or older (or 14–17 years of age with parental consent). Applicants 14 years old may apply, but will not be issued the card until they reach age 15)
21 to obtain an LTC.
Please fill out the Massachusetts Resident LTC/FID/Machine Gun Application. Print the form, fill out ALL necessary information and bring it to the police station. Forms can also be obtained at the Longmeadow Police station.
Yes. You must notify, in writing, the licensing authority who issued the license, the chief of police into whose jurisdiction you move to and the Executive Director of the Criminal History Systems Board. Notification must be by certified mail within 30 days.
Not right away. You can possess any firearm, rifle or shotgun for up to 60 days without a LTC or FID card. You cannot lawfully carry these items, you can only possess them.
Yes. This is true for both LTC and FID cards. You must produce a valid license on demand. If you do not, the police can take your firearm until you produce such license. However, any inappropriate act while carrying a firearm may result in the immediate revocation of the license.
No. The weapon must be unloaded and contained within the locked trunk or in a locked case. This carries a $500 fine if violated.
In order to carry a loaded firearm, you must have a Class A LTC- Non Restricted. Carrying a loaded firearm under a Class A license must be under your direct control. It cannot be under the seat, in the trunk, etc. This carries a $500 fine if violated.
Massachusetts has very strict firearms storage laws. If you are the lawful owner of a firearm and it is not under your direct control, the firearm(s) must be secured so that it is "inoperable by any person other than the owner or other lawfully authorized user". That means that if you do not have the firearm within arms reach it should be "secured in a locked container or equipped with a tamper-resistant mechanical lock". NEVER leave a firearm unattended unless it is secured in an appropriate container or with an appropriate lock.
The laws for transporting a firearm differ. If you have an unrestricted LTC you may ONLY transport a loaded handgun under your direct control on a public way. If you do not have an unrestricted LTC or if you are transporting rifles or shotguns, all firearms (handguns, rifles and shotguns) MUST be unloaded and in a locked container. A locked trunk or rear storage area (out of reach by the driver and passengers) complies with this rule however, having the firearms in a locked container prevents misunderstandings that might occur in the event of a mechanical breakdown or traffic stop by a Law Enforcement Officer. Also, note that having the firearm only secured with tamper-resistant mechanical lock DOES NOT comply with the rule.
Simply put, no. The laws pertaining to the use of marijuana while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle mirror the laws pertaining to the use of alcohol behind the wheel. A driver found to be under the influence of marijuana while operating a vehicle could be subject to arrest for OUI: Drugs. This offense carries the same penalties as OUI: Alcohol, including license suspension, fines, and in some cases, jail time.
Also, much like having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle is a $500 civil citation, having an open container of marijuana in a vehicle is now also a $500 civil citation under these new laws. Understand that both a driver AND passenger can be found to be in violation of this law.
No. This is a violation under the public consumption portion of the new law. Remember, if you are seen consuming marijuana in public, regardless of the time of day, you are subject to a $100 civil fine.
Correct. Remember, under the new law, adults 21 and over may legally transfer (“gift”) up to an ounce of marijuana to another adult, so long as there was no monetary or items of value exchanged. Based on the law, this legal transfer may occur in public or in private.
Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. While yes, “civil” fines issued on town by-law tickets are processed differently than say “civil” fines issued on state traffic citations, failure to pay can result in criminal penalties. For example, if you are issued a $100 civil fine on a town by-law ticket for a violation of the public consumption law, you must pay within the mandated time frame. Here in Longmeadow, you have 21 days to either pay the fine or request a hearing to contest the matter. If you fail to pay the fine or request a hearing within the 21 days, you are subject to being issued a criminal complaint for failure to pay.

Our licensed summer camps require current physical and immunization records in order to be licensed by the Board of Health. The oversight of this requirement falls on a single staff in the office, making it difficult to keep track of non-compliant campers.
You must email a recent physical and immunization form for each child attending a licensed camp. Physical and immunization records must be within 18 months from the start of camp. A doctor's standard form used for schools and camps works perfectly for this purpose since it has the physical information and the immunization records on it. You may email a PDF of the forms to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need help with this, please email the office so we can assist you.
Beginning in Spring 2024, current physical and immunization records will be required prior to any online licensed camp enrollments.
