Lowell Licensing Update

A few weeks back the City of Lowell was hit by a massive cyber-attack. GOAL confirmed the incident and we have been in contact with city officials to keep licensing going. Until the systems are completely up and running again the State and the City have worked out the following for renewals:

  •  Well prior to your expiration date, mail the renewal application via certified mail to: 50 Arcand Drive Lowell, MA 01852.
  • The City will then send the renewal application to the Firearms Record Bureau. FRB will then enter the application into the system (but not fully process it). This will make sure that your license is grandfathered until action is taken on it: Chapter 140, Section 131(i): if the licensee applied for renewal before the license expired, the license shall remain valid after its expiration date for all lawful purposes until the application for renewal is approved or denied.
  • As for new licenses, we are still working with both parties. There is a chance that the State could set up a neighboring community to assist until Lowell is back up and running.

We will keep that membership apprised of any updates as they come.
