Under G. L. c. 269, § 10(h), anyone who assists in the illegal possession of ammunition or possesses ammunition without a license may be incarcerated for up to two years. Massachusetts defines ammunition as live rounds as well as each component. Therefore, ammunition includes used cartridges, primers, bullets, smokeless and black powder. See G. L. c. 140, § 121.
Any gun conviction is serious because it has collateral consequences affecting your future. You can also be charged for violating federal gun laws. For example, the transfer or possession of armor-piercing ammunition.
