The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court heard oral argument in the case of Commonwealth v. Brain Harris that raised the issue whether Massachusetts law denies nonresidents the right to bear arms by exposing them to criminal penalties for not having an FID card. This case was argued in November with a decision likely in the next month or two.
In the Harris case, the defendant, Harris, was charged with possession of a firearm without an FID and possession of a Large Capacity Firearm out of the Lowell District Court. The defendant got into an argument with his then-girlfriend who called the police. When the defendant’s girlfriend called the police, she told the police he had guns; the police came to the apartment with guns drawn. Harris showed the police a license to carry in New Hampshire and lead the police to the guns.
