Because MA's laws on permits are not strict enough...

Ug, this makes me so frustrated! We already have "May Issue" laws for concealed carry and handguns (class A and B) already. People aren't going around carrying shotguns and rifles on the streets of Boston. Low capacity rifles and shotguns are only reasonably used for hunting and sport and property defense. Which the people of Boston have just as much right in the city as anywhere else in the state, and that permit should not be made "may issue!" It is the only permit that is Shall Issue in MA -- this isn't about the safety or purpose of shotguns and rifles, it is about police wanting all control to any gun ownership.
