The Firearms Licensing Review Board is back in business!!!

I am pleased to announce that my litigation sponsored by Commonwealth Second Amendment has been successful and the restoration of rights afforded by the Firearms Licensing Review Board (FLRB) will be recognized in Massachusetts again. In two companion cases before the Suffolk Superior Court, a judge held that “the right to bear arms is a civil right within the ambit of Section 921(a)(20) and a decision by the (FLRB) pursuant to G.L. c. 140, sec. 130B that a convicted person who lost such a right is now suitable to be an LTC holder constitutes a restoration of that person’s civil rights under this statute.”

The Department of Criminal Justice Information Services will no longer interfere with the issuance of LTCs approved under an FLRB decision. Additionally, I have been advised that the FLRB will begin meeting again and issuing favorable decisions this summer.

My office has begun reaching out to our clients who have been affected by the Commonwealth’s misguided attempt to reinterpret the law and we hope to begin litigating before the FLRB by July.

If you have been denied an LTC or FID due to a conviction for operating under the influence (OUI), assault and battery (A+B), receiving stolen property (RSG) or some other misdemeanor offense, please contact our office to discuss the restoration of your firearms rights. We can be reached at (617) 383-4652 or

    Congrats Jason: Question:I am one that the FLRB restored my LTC.. Does this mean the
    400 or so would have to reappear again to the FLRB? RB
