My point is not that I would personally worry about ammo boxes, but that with so much crap on the books they have made it impossible to tell fact from fiction.The ammo CMR is not a "law" per se in the typical sense.
Anyone who loses sleep over what kind of box their ammo is in has issues, I'll just leave it at that.
The average MA gun owner has no clue there IS such a law and routinely uses such containers as they see fit (as they should).Who gives a F? Seriously? When Marcia and her friends read shit like this, they know that they have the population right where they want us. I mean, the average MA gun owner is afraid of putting ammo in the WRONG GODDAMNED BOX! CHRIST people!
While this is on goals website I have not been able to find an actual MA law that states this. For firearms sure there are laws stating locked, but nothing for ammunition. That said I wouldn't just leave it laying around.
That's because it is NOT MGL but a CMR (administrative law). If GOAL didn't attribute it on their webpage, that is a big mistake on their part.While this is on goals website I have not been able to find an actual MA law that states this.

It isn't actually enforceable by police. It falls under the State Fire Marshal and therefore enforceable only by the Fire Chief. In other words, don't worry about it!I wouldn't stress about the original container reg. I don't know of any cops other than pro-2A guys who are even aware of it. I've certainly never seen it enforced.
Before I moved to MA, there was literally mixed ammo rolling around in the trunk of my car. When we were getting ready for the move, I remember pulling a number of .22, 9mm, .45, and .308 out of various nooks and crannies in my car. Whats the big deal?Hmmm, storing ammo in a box? That is a great idea! I usually put a bunch of cartridges in my pocket onthe way to and from the range. And they are usually some rolling around in the range bag
