In 2004, Congress passed the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act (LEOSA) giving active and retired law enforcement officers the ability to travel across state lines with a firearm without being subject to various and conflicting state laws and local ordinances.
Retired law enforcement officers must first obtain a LEOSA identification card from their former agency before they can exercise their LEOSA rights. Unfortunately, Massachusetts has established burdensome rules and regulations that make it difficult for many retired officers to obtain these cards.
Attorney Guida is familiar with the Massachusetts LEOSA regulations and what it means to be a “qualified” retired law enforcement officer. If you have been refused a LEOSA identification card from your former agency, contact Attorney Guida today at (617) 383-4652.
