Belmont's licensing officer is Making The World Safe From Democracy, or at least trying to. He is planning to require:

1. Safety courses AND practical fire tests for ALL applicants, INCLUDING renewals. Note that state law pre-empts this.

2. "Letters of Recommendation." Note that the state-created and only authorized application requires only 2 references; NO "letters of recommendation."

3. Membership in a gun club. Note that this requirement, imposed by the Randolph PD, was STRUCK DOWN by the Quincy District Court.

It seems Belmont seeks to ape Brookline, Newton and Boston in intimidation, obstruction and harassment in the name of "public safety."

Belmont residents are so warned.[/b]

Thanks for the heads up.

I won't have to worry about anything untill 2011 tho.

At least for now [roll]

By then, they'll probably require a DNA sample as part of "suitability"! [roll]

Yup it sure is disgusting and falls in line with a number of other towns methodology.

Hope your not related to a felon.
 
I just moved to Melrose this weekend. It's still listed as a green town on packing.org. My friend has an ALP here. I'm going to go down to the station on my next day off and see about reapplying to getting the S&T taken off. Seems like I should do it really soon before the disease of stupid gun laws spreads over here.

When was the last time there as a gun crime at the hands of a LTC holder who's license was issued by Belmont?

This all has nothing to do with "safety" or "trustworthiness"! It is all about intimidation and control! They are doing what they can to intimidate people NOT to apply for a LTC!

I've been told by many people that they had FID or LTC prior to 10/98, but were so intimidated by the news stories on "the new requirements" and rumors of some chiefs to be hard-ass and requiring all sorts of stuff (most mention "having to take a course") that they never even bothered to get a current permit and are now allegedly in illegal possession of firearms . . . that they can't shoot or bring anywhere (none of these folks ever "carried").

Short of paying an attorney to face off with the chief, the majority avoid the conflicts and just comply with the insane requirements or don't bother to get a LTC/FID! Thus, the chiefs crow that they are succeeding in meeting their goals (of no permits or few to the politically connected only).
 
... whoever was that st**d that passed that law... is the worst moron... [i have run-out of superlatives here... sorry] ever existed in this entire planet. Does not understand anything... let my 14 year old daugther teach him some lessons about common sense! [roll]

I wonder if it can ever be taught! [roll] [?] but lets give it a try... [lol]
 
I'm looking TO revolt!

I'd rather spend my hard-earned money on guns, ammo, and classes rather than lawyers.

I wonder if there's a way we could get a class-action lawsuit to be done so that multiple wronged citizens could get jusitce.

Maybe a topic for a new Thread?
