Massachusetts Gun Law Deemed Unconstitutional

Massachusetts firearms regulations violate the Second Amendment by prohibiting permanent residents from obtaining a firearms license, a federal judge ruled.
Plaintiffs Christopher Fletcher and Eoin Pryal are lawful permanent residents of the United States, who emigrated from the United Kingdom.
Before relocating to Cambridge, Massachusetts, Fletcher lived in California where he held a Basic Firearms Safety Certificate, which allowed him to possess firearms within the state.
Pryal was a Rifleman in the British Territorial Army before emigrating to Northborough, Massachusetts. He currently works as an assistant instructor at the Massachusetts Firearm School in Framingham and as a customer service representative at a Massachusetts firearm manufacturer.
Both men applied for, and were denied, a license to possess a personal firearm in their home for self-defense purposes.
The Second Amendment Foundation and Commonwealth Second Amendment joined their suit against Robert Haas, Cambridge Commissioner of Police, Mark Leahy, the Northborough Chief of Police, and Jason Guida, the Director of the Firearms Records Bureau.
