    This gentleman was carrying an illegal, unregistered loaded 9mm with 30 round magazine (further illegal) ? but with no firearms license to carry (LTC)?

    How can this be ? Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation.
    No matter how many new guns laws the sleazy Massachusetts legislature and Governor put into effect; every drug addict hoodrat is armed to the teeth but the taxpayer chump citizen has to jump through many hoops to obtain an LTC. ‘Gun Control’ is an unserious sham and complete political theatre

      Thanks David; how did you become such a sensible person being in the belly of the progressive beast Massachusetts? Victimhood for the masses is the norm from these out of touch politicos running our lives into the ground. Makes no sense though considering our history during the American Revolution. Lexington and Concord and the midnight ride of Paul Revere to warn the colonists that the British were coming for their gunpowder. A disarmed population are no longer citizens but vassels of the governing state.
