Updated LTC Guidance: Suspension of Operations During COVID-19 Pandemic

Posted By Winchester Police on March 17th, 2020

Below is information regarding the application and renewal of firearms license to carry (LTC) procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic.  We appreciate your cooperation.

 All applicants are instructed to mail in their new or renewal applications.

  • Include a check for the application fee along with the application.  Processing will not be initiated without the appropriate fee included.
  • Applications are available on the FRB website here: https://www.mass.gov/how-to/apply-for-a-firearms-license.
  • For new applicants, Winchester PD is temporarily delaying the in-person portion of the licensing process including interviews, fingerprinting and photographs in order to comply with the Governor’s social distancing guidelines.
  • If you apply for a renewal prior to the expiration of their license (and who get a receipt acknowledging so), your license will remain valid until the agency approves or denies it. As a result, delaying the in-person portion of the licensing process will not prejudice these licensees.
  • If you apply for renewal after the expiration of their LTC, c.140, sec.131(i) states that for the purposes of c.269. sec.10 an LTC shall be deemed valid for a period not to exceed 90 days beyond the expiration date unless the LTC is revoked. Note this provision applies only to LTC and not FID Cards.
