Possessing items such as firearms, knives, daggers, pepper spray or brass knuckles in Massachusetts without the proper license can be illegal.
Massachusetts has some of the toughest firearms laws in the country. In fact, not only does Massachusetts require an individual to have a license to own a firearm, it also requires an individual to have a firearms license to possess ammunition. In some instances, the penalty for possession of a firearm without a proper license is a minimum mandatory jail sentence of 18 months. Additionally, convictions for weapons offenses can disqualify you from legally owning a firearm in the future.
