Poll: Massachusetts police chiefs favor discretion in issuing concealed gun permits

16 abril 2015

Who decides who can carry concealed firearms legally? Should local police chiefs have a say? Massachusetts police chiefs think so. A new survey finds that a majority of Massachusetts police chiefs favor continuing to give local police discretion in whether or not to grant concealed carry hand gun permits in their jurisdiction. Massachusetts is one of nine states with a ‘may-issue’ concealed carry permit law, which gives a police chief discretion in issuing a gun permit.
