Anyone know if you can travel out of Logan with suppressors with your firearms ? I know they are banned in Mass but if you own them in a nearby state legally I’m wondering if you can fly out of Logan with them. Have someone mooning me on a hunt down south and he asked and I had no idea so figured I’d ask here
For purposes of FOPA, the term “firearm” means (A) any weapon (including a starter gun) which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive; (B) the frame or receiver of any such weapon; (C) any firearm muffler or firearm silencer
; or (D) any destructive device. Such term does not include an antique firearm.
So in theory, as long as you keep your suppressor in a case locked with TSA-approved locks, declare it as you check it, and travel to a sane area where you are allowed to possess it, you are within the letter of the law. In the real world, I wouldn't trust the gate agents, TSA, or MSP's F-troop to know that. So even if you have copies of your paperwork, your tax stamp, and 27 8x10 color glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one, there's all too real a chance you'll be detained long enough to miss your flight.
