REPORTING LOSS, THEFT OR RECOVERY:
Massachusetts gun owners are required to report loss, theft or recovery of a gun to the state and local police department. To obtain an FA-10 form, call (617) 660-4780, check with your police department, or clck here for the online version.
Chapter 284 change: GOAL was succesful in adding language which prevents a licensing authority from finding a licensee "unstuitable" upon reporting a lost/stolen firearm. This exemption is only good once. If a licensee loses or has any additional firearms lost/stolen they can be found "unsuitable" by the licensing authority.
Upon renewal of LTC/FID a licensee must also fill out an affidavit confirming that he/she has not lost any firearms since the last renewal.
Also note new fees for failure to report lost/stolen firearm.
