Firearms Records Bureau v. Jay E. Simkin (Amicus)

Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court
Comm2A: Amicus Curiae

Amicus brief in a case challenging the FRB's authority to revoke the 'temporary' non-resident LTC of someone deemed 'unsuitable' when the relevant statute make no reference to suitability

Issues Presented

Whether the provisions of G. L. c. 140, §131, that allow the revocation of a permit to carry firearms if the holder is no longer a "suitable person," are applicable to non-residents (compare G. L. c. 140, §131F); whether, in the circumstances, reasonable grounds existed for the Firearm Records Bureau to revoke a non-resident's license.

Comm2A's brief was submitted by attorneys Karen MacNutt and J Steven Foley
