State Laws to be aware of:
It is the responsibility of attendees to know and comply with all State and Federal Firearms Laws.
Your rifle must be locked unloaded in your trunk or other secured container. Handguns may be possessed ONLY with a Massachusetts Class A License To Carry with either 'None' or 'All Lawful Purposes' for Reason for Issuance. - if you're from out of state, you need a MA non-resident LTC. MA has NO reciprocity with any other state. No 'assault weapons' - we still have an AWB that is the same thing as the old Federal AWB. ARs cannot have a flash hider, collapsible stock or a bayonet lug unless they are 'pre-ban.' High capacity magazines must be pre-ban as well. Non-residents CANNOT purchase ammo in this state. They have to bring it with them... or go to New Hampshire overnight. Check other State Laws.
Specifically, we advise visitors to:
1. Bring a printout out the relevant exemptions within MGL (Ch130, S131G: https://malegislature.gov/Laws/GeneralLaws/PartI/TitleXX/Chapter140/Section131g) as well as a copy of the event registration.
2. transport according to law (unloaded, locked container or trunk)
3. refuse to consent to any searches thereof.
