Hey there, Where do you carry in Gardner. I am new here (Since July of last year). I am currently waiting on my CCW. (Has been submitted since Early May) I emailed the local law enforcement and they said OC was illegal here due to a city code. They will cite you with brandishing if you have a weapon on your hip.
Here is the email I received.
In reference to your question pertaining to the Gardner City Ordinance on “brandishing a weapon”, the definition is such that brandishing means openly carrying on ones person. Additionally it pertains to a weapon being within reach of a person while in a motor vehicle.
Exceptions to this as stated in the ordinance are bona fide hunters carrying weapons that are unloaded and obviously those licensed to carry concealed who have a valid permit to do so.
I hope that this answers your question and if there is anything else that I can assist you with please feel free to contact me.
