Guess what was waiting for me when I got home?

Issued by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts: My unrestricted Class A Large Capacity License to Carry Firearms!

I dispute the "unrestricted" part, but still...now I actually legally OWN the guns I already own!
And I can buy more. And carry them concealed.

Go, me!

WTG!

I'd say congratulations but it's kind of a shame to have to bow and scrape to exercise your rights.

DaddyBear said...

Congratulations! You may now exercise your inalienable rights!

Keads said...

What Alan said, but congrats!

Brigid said...

Congratulations girlfriend!!!!

maddmedic said...

Is a good thing...

But why live in such a godforsaken State???

Jennifer said...

That's some impressive hoop jumping, lady. Good for you. Now you can exercise your inalienable rights.

Just be careful, and don't shoot your toes off.

When I walk around my acreage I pretend I'm in the city at 4am, and I pull my pistol out and BAM!

I usually get one copperhead snake a week. Those things give me the willy's.

Just remember what rights you allow the government to give you can be revoked at anytime. Be careful what you say on your blog.

Just saying,
Josh

Christina LMT said...

Thanks for the congrats and the advice, everyone!

Josh, I figure if JayG can blog what HE blogs at MArooned, I'm probably safe. ;)

Tam said...

As long as you don't say what TJIC said on his blog. ;)

(WV: "butborit" I am totally not going there...)

Jay G said...

Actually, in MA, "unrestricted" is pretty accurate.

Yes, we have hoops to jump through, and yes, if your CLEO is anti-freedom you're screwed, but once you have that license, you can carry anywhere.

Unlike Texas.

Congrats, Christina!

Jay-G
I don't remember needing to get my states permission to own my own property or even have it in my house.
;-)
I know we Texans got to jump through hoops to get our CHL's.

Josh K.,

"I know we Texans got to jump through hoops to get our CHL's."

And once you get 'em, figuring out where and how you can carry your heaters is more complicated than Chinese algebra...

Evyl Robot Michael said...

Congrats! Carry well and often. And give me a call about a holster. ;)

Mike W. said...

Congrats! And, as an added bonus your legs got a great workout from all that hoop jumping. :)

Christina LMT said...

Tam, I pretty much stay away from incendiary statements or comments. I don't think I could piss off or scare enough people for anyone to call the po-po on me! I'm too mellow. :)

Jay, but I still can't buy any gun I want. And I can't have more than 10 rounds in a magazine. That seems pretty restrictive.

Josh, Texas was pretty confusing, and there were a LOT of places posted, too.

EvylRobot Michael, first comes the right gun, then comes the perfect holster...from YOU.

Thanks, Mike W.! You got that right!

Josh K. said...

I was think of TJIC and wasn't their a guy that was arrested and sentenced to like 5 years, because he was moving and didn't have a license to own some rifles he was trasporting when he was pulled over and had them in his trunk?

Ya we have our hoops but MA's are .....

Or something like that.

Congrats!

Christina LMT said...

Josh, I think shit happens here when someone else "turns you in", or something of that sort.

Thanks, NFO!

Hooray! As a big-L Libertarian, I applaud another person having secured her (already given via The Constitution) rights in my (sometimes) bizarre state.

Lissa said...

Oh, congrats so much!!! Now go carry into a bar and have a soda :(
