He can apply but he MUST put the arrest info on the LTC application. Failure to do so is perjury and prosecutable plus grounds for denial as a "non suitable person".

Legally, the disposition of the case will determine his standing at getting a LTC. He should read C. 140 S. 131 first and study the list of disqualifiers to see if he is legally disqualified. If so, he is SOL forever in MA!!

If he is not legally disqualified, being open and honest about what happened with the chief or licensing officer may get him his LTC. If denied as an "unsuitable person" in spite of being legally qualified, then I'd recommend an attorney (and there is only one that I know that I can highly recommend to get favorable results). If one is needed either post back here or PM me for the contact info at that time. Right now, I'd say that a lawyer is premature.

How did you guess? :lol:

Yes, Atty Jesse Cohen is the only one I'd trust to get good results. BUT if he's legally disqualified, it's only wasting money to employ Jesse's talents. Chiefs do NOT have discretion to waive felony legal disqualifiers and there is NO way to do so in MA!

[Pardons just are not granted here so that folks can own guns! It may be on the law books, but it just isn't going to happen!]
