Live in NH, and just got a job in MA. I was considering getting a MA permit, but think they make me register what I might carry - so, not sure if I really care to tell any government anything about any firearm I might have for any reason - but, would like to keep one in my car for when I'm going to and from MA. Is it worth getting the permit? What are the risks associated with having guns registered with a government entity? Then I'm on a list and some day they could come to my door looking to collect. I guess it is a question of risk management, is the risk of being unarmed when going to MA greater than the risk of having to register - which poses the risk of being permanently unarmed?
