I can never find a list of areas that are off limits to carry a concealed firearm. I know schools , state or federal buildings, but not sure on hospitals, museums ect.Anybody know where i can find or know the list of areas off limits?
I searched hi and low and couldn't find a list .i know certain places like Fenway has a no firearm policy , but i didn't see anything on the Garden .Places like these will usually list something on their websites.
You'll find the restrictions in MGL Chapter 269, Crimes against Public Peace Section 10 thru 14f -
Suggest purchasing Law Enforcement Guide to Firearms Law - by the Municipal Police Institute (commercial entity)
Link Removed - best reference you'll find on Mass firearms law - $45 - 13th edition is the latest - 2008
You can get a good overview by attending GOAL's course The Art of Concealed Carry - taught by firearms attorney Darius Arbabi (Framingham, 508-395-6500) who is also an NRA-certified instructor/training counselor and GOAL director of education Jon Green (also NRA instructor/training counselor) . Offered about once a month at the GOAL headquarters in Northboro. One of the best I've ever attended. It's a four-hour course in the evening, and think it costs less than $100. You'll get to meet Arbabi in case you ever need his services. GOAL is the Gun Owner's Action League, 37 Pierce Street, Northboro, MA 508-393-5333 web page is Gun Owners' Action League If you are a gun owner in Massachusetts - it's good idea to join GOAL, if for no other reason that to get their monthly tabloid - keeps you informed of laws, events, instructional course and lots of other information that is good to know.
