Your production crew might be trying to skirt the law.

Please post the particulars of what they are trying to accomplish by having a licensed person in the theatre.

Read MGL Ch. 140 S. 131F1/2. Someone with a LTC must "supervise" the people (actors/actresses) carrying the firearm, etc.

Thanks for the info.

ection 131F1/2. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) of section ten of chapter two hundred and sixty-nine of the General Laws or any other law to the contrary, the carrying or possession of a firearm and blank ammunition therefor, during the course of any television, movie, stage or other similar theatrical production, by a person within such production, shall be authorized; provided, however, that such carrying or possession of such firearm shall be under the immediate supervision of a person licensed to carry firearms.
It seems that when the person with the license isn't around, the person with the firearm is breaking the law.

Notwithstanding any other law to the contrary presupposes that the firearm owner is otherwise legal in this state to have the firearm.

Yup, that's the law. Though it's a bit redundant, as § 129(m) already allows non-licensed folks to hold, handle, and fire a firearm for a lawful purpose in the presence of an LTC holder. The only difference is that 129(m) says "in the presence of" and § 131F½ says "immediate supervision of".

So when the licensee goes home for the night, the person possessing the firearm, and traveling with it to the performances is in violation of Bartley Fox?

Otherwise, why would they need a licensee?

Why don't they just buy a blank pistol incapable of firing a projectile? (Starter's pistol?) Then it wuldn't be a firearm, and therefore wouldn't need someone with a license?
