The only list I've seen that details the restrictions is for the non-resident licenses. Even then, they're not legally defined. eg : C&R (that was mentioned earlier) wasn't on the list I saw previously.
I never said it was binding, just that one was published for the Non-Resident LTC Holders by the issuing entity.There really is no list that is binding. If you do happen to find a list somewhere, you'll get so many interpretations of it, it will make your head spin. Each jurisdiction can put WHATEVER they want as restrictions. IE; "carry restricted to rainy days while wearing sandals".
We have discussed this for years here.
Edit: One CLEO says (verbally) to you, "target means you may carry to and from the range. I have no problem with that". Another CLEO, in another town tells you, "If I catch you CCing to or from the range, I will pull your LTC!"
The best thing to do is play it safe, and keep the gun locked up.

I just got a call from the pd. Request was denied...AGAIN. Springfield really sucksI think the first step would be you appealing it your self to see how far it gets you. If you get denied again, appeal again with a lawyer, or Comm2A. Just like Deflate gate.. there's no limit to appeals I dont think.
The policy is changed. Comm2A sued them.Just curious if anyone has talked to Bob Hedlund (newly elected mayor of Weymouth (former state senator with an A+ from NRA)) about Weymouth's practice of putting restrictions on LTC's. I've been licensed here for well over a couple decades but always get restrictions though I've asked for no restrictions. The last time I applied I asked why I got the T & H again and I was told that they only issue no restrictions to business owners and LEO. That sat wrong with me for a number of reasons. I have to renew again in another year or so and it would be refreshing to see some type of change to a seemingly privileged policy.
I hope you guys get to springfield soon as they do the same lolComm2A sued Weymouth for issuing restricted LTCs to most people. Weymouth agreed to change their policy. Write a nice letter to the chief politely asking to have your restrictions removed. Then go see the licensing officer.
If you're happy with your unrestricted LTC don't forget how it happened: Comm2A
Thought I'd give a brief update as I asked originally in this post a few weeks ago. I had written to the CLEO and expressed my desire to remove my restrictions and provided the same reasons as I had put down originally. To his credit, I got a call from the licensing bureau immediately. After discussing it over the phone, I was informed that my reasons warranted an LTC-A but not an unrestricted as none of those provided gave a reason for personal protection. Before anyone jumps on that, I'm just synopsizing so there is more to it and in a good way, the new licensing officer is very easy to deal with. I added somethings to my reasons though that part, in my mind, is a thin line between common sense and coming out as being paranoid when reading it back to myself. As it stands I am now waiting on my unrestricted license to come in so as knuckle Dragger suggested, thanks comm2A and also a nod in Weymouths PD's direction for a pleasant change and quick response.
https://www.northeastshooters.com/v...rictions-who-want-to-remove-them-please-PM-meI would love to get my restrictions removed however is it going to put a target on my back with my local p.d.??? The whole thing is Stupid. I have never broken a law not even a speeding ticket, I have been shooting since 1975, Waltham Ma gives me restricted ltc. I even wrote a letter to the chief last year to ask for restrictions to be removed. I was denied.
http://www.northeastshooters.com/vb...uide-to-gun-rights-in-your-Massachusetts-townDoes anyone know if Peabody is difficult to get an Unrestricted LTC? This would be my first license to carry. I saw in past posts that it was a few years ago. Not sure if they have gotten better about it?
Regrettably, the federal courts have universally upheld licensing policies that only grant special people (well connected, or can prove they carry cash) a carry permit (unrestricted in the MA vernacular).So I got my LTC unrestricted in a red town.. part of the deal was that I need to own a business in town... luckily I do BUT from a legal perspective how is this not discriminatory? Isn't this like saying that I'm only entitled to free speech or the ability to vote if I own a business? It seems so simplistically against the constitution how do they get away with that? Also... why is my / families life worth protecting more because I own a business VS someone who does not? I'm no lawyer but why can Comm2A blow something like that out of the water with little or no effort ?
