Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court
Comm2A: Amicus Curiae
Amicus brief in a case challenging the FRB's authority to revoke the 'temporary' non-resident LTC of someone deemed 'unsuitable' when the relevant statute make no reference to suitability
Whether the provisions of G. L. c. 140, §131, that allow the revocation of a permit to carry firearms if the holder is no longer a "suitable person," are applicable to non-residents (compare G. L. c. 140, §131F); whether, in the circumstances, reasonable grounds existed for the Firearm Records Bureau to revoke a non-resident's license.
Comm2A's brief was submitted by attorneys Karen MacNutt and J Steven Foley
