LTC Ma is given to anyone over the age of 21. You must also be a resident of Massachusetts in order to qualify for the license. However, these are not the only two things that are considered when determining the eligibility of an applicant. There are other considerations that are made. If you plan on applying for the FID card Ma or the LTC, below are some of the steps you need to take.
Complete gun safety course
The first thing that is considered in an applicant is that he or she has taken the Massachusetts gun safety course. This is required by law. You can take the gun safety courses Ma through the local police department or using private companies. The key is to ensure the course you are taking is an approved one. At the end of the course, which normally takes a few hours, you will be awarded with a certificate. This certificate has to be attached to your application for an LTC or FID card Massachusetts.
Be of sound mental state
The next thing you need to do is to prove that you are of sound mind. No one with a mental problem can be awarded a gun license Ma. If you have ever been committed in an institution for mental problems or addiction, you have to provide a letter from your doctor which states that the condition no longer applies to you. Failure to do so will lead to automatic disqualification.
Have a good criminal record
All applicants are required to have a good criminal record. This does not mean your record must be sparkling clean. However, if you have ever been convicted of a crime punishable by a prison time of more than 2 years, your chances of qualifying for the LTC Ma will be small. If this is case, you need to seek advice from an attorney in order to review your options.
Fill and submit the forms
The next step is to get the application forms from the local police department and fill them up. The forms should then be submitted back to the local police department. You must also state whether you are applying for a new license or a renewal. The application fee for the FID card Ma or LTC is $100. You have to submit the application forms in person because additional information may be required and your fingerprints will be taken.
