West Roxbury Man Arrested on Massachusetts Gun & Assault Charges

Robert M. MacCormack, 32, of West Roxbury, was arrested on Massachusetts Gun Crimes Charges this past weekend after he allegedly pulled out a gun on a food delivery driver. MacCormack was arrested on gun crimes including Assault With a Dangerous Weapon and Improper Storage of a Firearm.

According to the Boston Police Department, police officers were approached by a delivery driver who said Robert MacCormack allegedly pulled out a gun on him as he was driving down Pender Street in West Roxbury. According to the driver, MacCormack allegedly pulled up to him after his delivery and questioned why he was driving down the street in a reckless manner. The driver alleges that he was threatened at this point by MacCormack allegedly pointing a gun at him.

Boston Police Officers who responded to the incident reported that Robert MacCormack is licensed to carry a firearm and arrested him. A search of MacCormack’s house also yielded in the seizure of three guns and several rounds of ammunition.

Of particular concern in this case is what justification the Boston Police used in entering the home of Robert M. MacCormack and searching for and seizing his other lawfully owned weapons, presumably without a search warrant.

The Massachusetts Gun Laws of Improper Storage of a Firearm makes it unlawful for any person, whether properly licensed or not, to store a firearm or ammunition in any place unless the weapon is secured in a lock container or equipped with a tamper-resistant mechanical lock or other device so as to render the weapon inoperable by any person other than the owner or other lawfully authorized user.

A violation of Improper Storage of a Firearm in Massachusetts could result in imprisonment for up to 1 year; or for not less than 1 year and up to 10 years if the firearm is a “large capacity weapon or machine gun.”

Under Massachusetts Gun Laws, a firearm is defined as “a pistol, revolver or other weapon…loaded or unloaded, from which a shot or bullet can be discharged…”
