One question I am often asked is, “Will I be able to get a gun license if I have felony on my record?” Unfortunately the answer is NO. Even if you had a Massachusetts gun license for years without any incidents just having a felony on your record will make you ineligible to legally carry a gun in Massachusetts., Once you get a felony on your record you lose right to ever carry a gun in Massachusetts.
