Phase 1 of the Plan to reopen the Commonwealth Includes Shooting Ranges
Today, May 18, 2020, Governor Baker unveiled the plan to reopen the Commonwealth. Included in the list of entities and businesses that could reopen immediately were firearm retailers and shooting ranges. Retailers have already been open due to the successful federal court challenge.
The new list does not differentiate outdoor versus indoor ranges, but any opening will have to be done following the safety standards guidance. A link for those standards can be found below.
