Gun safety courses Easthampton are meant to educate people on gun safety and the Massachusetts’ firearm laws. It is mandatory that you complete an approved course before you can apply for a gun license. The purpose of this post is not to educate you on the process of completing a safety course but rather on the process of obtaining and preparing the application for a license to carry Ma.
Obtain the license
When applying for the FID Ma or license to carry, you start by completing the Massachusetts Resident LTC/FID/Machine Gun Application form. There are several ways of getting this form.
- The first option is that of printing the application forms from the Internet. You do this by visiting the website of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security. You can do this through www.mass.gov/eopss.
- The second option is that of contacting the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security directly via telephone. Their contact number is 617-727-7775. Make a request so that the application form will be sent to you by mail.
- You can also visit the local police station and request for the copy of the application form.
Additional forms may be needed depending on your residency. For example, non-residents will be applying for the license to carry Ma as resident alien. They may need a Firearms Licensing Review Board Petition which can be found on the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Firearms Forms and Application page.
Fill out the form clearly
Now that you have completed the required gun safety courses Easthampton and acquired the necessary forms, it is time to fill out the application. The form needs to be completed carefully both by printing or typing clearly and legibly in all the required fields. Always start by reading through the instructions on the form before you start filling the required fields. Contact the local police department if you have any question about the application.
Mark if it is your first time application or a renewal
You will be required to mark if this is the first time you are applying for the FID Ma or license to carry. You just need to mark on the ‘New Applicant’ if it is the first time you are completing the application. If it is renewal, check the ‘Renewal’ area. You will also need to provide your most recent license number if this is a renewal.
Indicate the gun license that you need
Do you need a license to purchase firearm and keep it at home? If that is what you want, you will need the FID. For permission to carry, you need the LTC.
Complete the question on legal status
Questions on your citizenship, past convictions/ felonies, history of mental illness, drug or alcohol addiction, domestic violence and outstanding warranties will be asked.
Reason for applying for a gun license
Last but not least, you should not skip the question on your reason for applying for a gun license. Be truthful. You should then sign the application and make sure you attach the certificate you received after completing the gun safety courses Easthampton.
