Massachusetts has some of the strictest gun regulations in the nation. So strict, in fact, that the laws affect other states in the country when it comes to reciprocity.

While many states will recognize gun permits from reciprocating states, Massachusetts will not, according to the National Rifle Association of America's Institute for Legislative Action.
