"After getting his ID and permit, held him for 10 minutes then took the gun away. Claim for taking gun was that he could not verify the permit. The lawyer sued and lost."
So, if law enforcement can't verify a permit to carry in the state of Massachusetts then
of what use is the permit?
This statement from page 13 of the decision:
"As it happens, Massachusetts did not have a simple way for police
officers to conduct such a check, so Stern's effort to do so took
several minutes. "
Incident took place in July 2006.......decision handed down Wednesday before last 12/23/09.
I think the "did" is telling. I bet they can now.
