Late to the party but here's a similar, parallel question to what the OP asked. Let's assume that a person is open carrying and no laws have been broken (properly licensed, not on school property, not threatening anyone or committing any other crime). Could the issuing Police Chief suspend the LTC for suitability? MA law makes LTCs may issue not shall issue, and allows the Chief to determine if an applicant is suitable. Could a Chief de facto outlaw open carry in his/her town by suspending the LTCs of persons who open carry?
