    So now improper storage applies differently to different types of guns?!??!

    "Lyons-Montgomery also faces a state prison term of 1 1/2 to 12 years, a fine between $2,000 and $12,000, or both, if found guilty of improperly storing the AR-15."

    What kind of stupid do you have to be to carry a long gun “for protection” in this state?

    If he was truly lost, I think I would have stashed it in the woods and came back for it rather than strolling around with it.

    What sort of dumbasserie is this?

    On the one hand, I want to be in this guy’s corner. I mean seriously what the f*** is “unlawful possession” anyway? It’s in the f***ing constitution for Christ’s sake!

    On the other hand, so much stupid here. Of course some concerned citizen/idiot is going to call the cops in a panic. If you are going to walk around with anything pointy or bangy anywhere within the people’s republic of MA, make sure you have your paperwork in order. Second, what the f*** was he thinking telling them “there’s more inside, come on in”?

    Has this dude been living under a rock? Dude, it’s Red Dawn out there, the commies have landed, get your shit together...

    He probably figured he wouldn’t remember where to come back to get it if he was dumb enough to do any of this in the first place.

    Nothing I read in that article should be a crime and now this guy's life is basically ruined. Not a victim to be found. At least the sheep will feel safer.

    I'm hoping he's gearing up for a massive lawsuit against MA draconian laws. As much as it may be unlikely, I'm clinging.

    What some fail to realize here that in other parts of the country and even in another time this was normal behaviour. But to see so many current gun owners right here on this board gasp and wag fingers tells it all. If these folks are even the least bit stirred up imagine your how your rank and file moonbattery feels. Yeah not the least bit suprised this guys life is over...

    Yeah I got think that is some made up crap right there, “improper storage” is extra improper if it is one of those scary black rifles.

    Well he should know the rules of Massachusetts if you are going to own firearms here. I think the storage charges were just BS but the others he should have been aware of. Lesson learned the hard way

    It’s extra improper if it’s “large capacity”

    I’m withholding judgement until rumors that he was carrying birdshot as a defensive load are confirmed.

    right, and brilliantly predicted as far back as 1966 via the film "the russians are coming, the russians are coming." no one listened then either.

    No, his first mistake was not having a shitload of heroin on him. Everyone knows drug charges = automatic drop of any weapons charges, lower bail, and less prison time.

    Well I said “made up crap” and I wasn’t far wrong — the fact that they actually codified it into law doesn’t make it any less made up in my book. :(

    Thanks for the reference @swatgig

    This poor S.O.B. probably believed what it said on his $2. FID card. Valid for life or until it is revoked.

    Dude, I’m all for doing cowboy shit as long as whoever does it knows they’re likely to get caught if they aren’t smart about it. Walking around with a shotgun on his back in eastern MA, while should be legal no matter what state, type of firearm, or licensed vs. not, is a good way to get f***ed over by the neighbors.
    This guy is just straight stupid or incredibly ignorant.

    Interesting he was initially told to go home and stow the gun. Only later did the detective do some detecting. That was the guys window to get his shit together. It sounds like the police might have been giving him a chance, which he declined
