    As the title says, I’m wondering if a MA LTC holder, who owns a second home in RI, can purchase and keep a high capacity magazine in RI. It would obviously be a no-no to buy one and bring it back into MA, if it’s even possible to do (purchase one, that is). But I’m wondering if it were to remain at this individual’s RI home, whether it can be done? Is it legal to do, and do gun shops in RI check IDs before selling high capacity magazines?

    …or should this question be asked in the MA Gun Laws section of the forum?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes of course, just don't mention you are a MA resident to the seller and never bring it into MA. That's perfectly legal.

    State laws apply to you and your property when they are in that state.
    You can smoke MJ in MA, just don't bring it to NH

    Here in RI, those are standard capacity magazines.
