Resident gun and firearm permits are issued by local police departments. There are three basic types of permits: a firearm I.D. card, a license to carry, and a permit to purchase. An F.I.D. card is required to own, possess, or carry (with some restrictions) a rifle, shotgun, or ammunition and to own or possess a pistol (handgun) which must be kept in the person's residence or place of business. A license to carry is required to transport or possess a handgun away from the residence or one's place of business and may also be used to possess and carry (with some restrictions) a rifle or shotgun. Permits to purchase are issued to F.I.D. cardholders to buy a handgun which, once purchased, is delivered by the local gun dealer to the home or place of business where the permit holder keeps it with the F.I.D. card. A permit to purchase conveys no right to transport or carry. Non-residents traveling in Massachusetts with handguns are generally required to obtain a non-resident license to carry. However, non-residents traveling in the Commonwealth transporting an unloaded rifle or shotgun in a carrying case do not need a permit.
