Plymouth, Massachusetts – -( When Plymouth local Mark Shean started training people on firearms safety in Massachusetts, he saw a void in materials to help guide his students. It was over 10 years ago that he started his blog Gun Sense. Today, Mark is happy to announce the compilation & release of his articles into one comprehensive guide, “Gun Sense – Massachusetts Gun Law Information and Common Sense Firearm Safety“.

“Gun Sense” is a book for everyone. The primary focus is safety. Shean takes readers on a journey through basic firearms safety, gun handling & Massachusetts specific subjects. More importantly, Shean talks about what to teach your children about firearms…how to do it & when. In an entertaining & easy to follow narrative Shean teaches the important lessons needed to keep accidents from happening. The biggest lesson he imparts is that individuals engage their brains. From the book Shean offers sage instruction:

“Now I am going to let you in on a secret; YOU are any firearms best safety. YOU are the master safety, you can NEVER trust a manmade safety on ANY firearm… do not think for a second that it gives you license to carelessly handle that firearm! Remember that #1 rule, TREAT EVERY FIREARM AS LOADED AT ALL TIMES…That has to be our mindset. Weapons’ safety is everyone’s responsibility, especially yours. Practice safe weapons’ handling until it becomes a habit.”

Other topics that are covered in “Gun Sense” include:

  • How to obtain a Massachusetts Class A or B License to Carry (LTC)
  • How to obtain a Massachusetts Class C Firearms Identification Card (FID)
  • If you need a “Reason” letter to get your firearms permit, how to write one…
  • How to write a recommendation for a colleague or friend
  • How to deal with firearms in an inheritance
  • Massachusetts Gun Law in general
  • Op-eds on rights and politics
  • And much much more….

The kindle version of the book is extensively cited with links internally and externally to Massachusetts General Law Chapter 140, Code of Massachusetts Regulations 527 chapter 1 and other articles/resources for the reader to enjoy or gain a greater understanding. The paperback version contains the text version of links to direct readers should the wish to take their reading further on an internet-enabled device.

    I appreciate the work that you do for second admendment rights, but you should stop using the word weapon. Please see the definition:

    Definition of weapon

    (Entry 1 of 2)
    1 : something (such as a club, knife, or gun) used to injure, defeat, or destroy
    2 : a means of contending against another

    I have no intent on using my FIREARMS on others. My FIREARMS are only a danger to paper targets, water jugs and the occasional vegetable. My FIREARMS are less dangerous than Ted Kennedy’s car. I believe that the left is big into words and you shouldn’t fall into their trap. The term modern sporting rifle has changed my mind about AR’s

    Just my two cents on something to consider.

    If you actually use it in self defense what would you call it?
