Massachusetts: Shooting Ranges to Reopen

Gun Rights

Today, Gov. Baker signed COVID-19 Order No. 33 easing restrictions that were put into place to address the COVID-19 crisis. The new guidance allows shooting ranges to open today, May 18th.  Shooting ranges will be required to follow the safety protocols outlined in the Governor’s Order. 

Gov. Baker’s original COVID-19 Order No. 21 closed shooting ranges and gun shops from March 31st to May 4th. That order was then amended to extend the restriction through May 18th. On May 7th, however, a federal judge ordered the Baker Administration to allow gun shops to re-open on Saturday, May 9th, but the judge did not address shooting ranges. 

Please check with your range for announcements on their procedures for reopening.
