  1. I just received an email inviting me to submit my comments as testimony to Governor Murphy's newly formed Wealth Disparity Task Force (see below). Other than teaching as a Adjunct Professor at Rutgers (unpaid) for over 30 years and writing letters NRA and NJ2AS asked for, I have no idea how my name was selected. Was anyone else on the Forum selected too???

  2. Why does a civilian need to meet the same requirements as a LEO? Florida for example accepts NRA Basic pistol and many other less costly, simpler ways. https://www.fdacs.gov/Consumer-Resources/Concealed-Weapon-License/Applying-for-a-Concealed-Weapon-License/Acceptable-Firearms-Training-Documentat Our 2A rights were denied us many years but we may be willing to accept requirements exceeding most states. The NJ standard assumed to show the applicant is "thoroughly familiar with the use and safe handling of the handgun" by completion of a firearms training course substantially equivalent to the firearms training approved by the Police Training Commission as described by N.J.S.A. 2C:39-6. Why do we need to meet this standard when most of the USA does not? If we accept it now (and the new requirements for references), we will be forced to give up our constitutional rights that were won after a long fight. Once we give them back we will not get them again. Let us err on the side of reason now that the US Supreme Court is behind us.
  3. Florida accepts NRA basic pistol. If US Supreme Court rules that right is as per 2nd amendment intended like Heller decision I don't see how NJ would legally going beyond that. It is why Murphy is trying to influence decision with his speech. I thought this was "above his pay grade" anyway!
  4. I practiced at NYC's Lenox Hill and Mt. Sinai... both are great. Did a GI training at Temple and their care was amazing. The Cardiac care at Temple is just as good if not better.
  5. Much appreciated. Not sure it is worth all the hassles and risk of having firearm stolen from car when visiting in the hospital. Wish we had better hospitals in NJ.
  6. Taking my ill wife to temple in Philly for a 1-2 day cardiac procedure. I have fla ccw permit and she does too. Given all the car jackings would you bring a handgun?
  7. Thank you for the info on DuckDuckGo censorship. I wasn't aware. I will check out Brave.
  8. Duckduckgo is the best !!! Keeps you more secure and doesn't make US Oligarchs richer. I once had some info posted just saying I joined a pro 2A club. Didn't want it public. Webmaster at the pro2A club could not get it off Google. I tried all of Google's rules and my efforts failed too. All Google products have a political agenda and they don't line up with your rights.
  9. Potassium iodide (KI) only prevents thyroid cancer, the most curable tumor. It's available OTC. It frequently causes allergic reactions. I am a pharmacist with advanced training, and practiced for many years, mostly as a cancer researcher. I volunteer as a first responder with my County Medical Reserve Corps and have taken FEMA trainings on nuclear events. New Jersey (and FEMA) are as well-prepared as possible, have stockpiled KI which would available. If you want to have it in advance, I would not use powder or crystals since doses are low and hard to measure. For a lot more information see https://www.fda.gov/drugs/bioterrorism-and-drug-preparedness/radiation-emergencies
  10. Hate to admit it but 35 cents.
  11. Movers do a pretty comprehensive check for prohibited items prior to moving your stuff. I have moved a lot and this is the same regardless of what company used. They found all the flammables and I wouldn't trust them with ANY firearms.
  12. If that sighting wasn't him. He had a several day lead. Bahamas and other islands are not that far away by boat.
  13. PS Just got my renewal in the mail back today 8/1. Just waiting for my wife's which was mailed one week later.
  14. Your experience was better than mine. My wife and and went together to the Palm Beach Office. Her prints were messed up by a woman who didn't seem to enjoy her job. The machine didn't indicate her prints were not good. Mine were OK. She had to get our local NJ Sheriff's office to do a card after the rejection. It was a PITA. Florida accepted the NRA Basic Pistol Safety Course.
  15. I double-checked with my local (Somerset County) Sheriff's office who is now doing fingerprint cards again for Florida CCW. Mine was a renewal but I doubt it made a difference. They needed proof of county residence (NJ FID card was fine) and picture ID (NJ Drivers License). Also bring a mask. They did mine this week and my wife is scheduled for next week. So, check with your county Sheriff. Remember the old James Garner movie Support your local Sheriff Great bunch of folks!!!
  16. Pistol caliber is a great idea. Just one question I thought SCFGPA closed one tube down due to COVID ??? Either way you still have to deal with the archery folks.  


    1. Krdshrk


      The range is back open at full capacity now

      Thanks for letting me know. I was hospitalized for a pulmonary embolism provoked by the second dose of Moderna vaccine and haven't been to SCFGPA lately. Also thanks for the pistol caliber suggestion.

      All My Best!

  17. I wasn't planning on selling it but now see how dumb it is to keep it NIB and buy another. Thanks for your feedback. My local range is SCFGPA and they have only one port for rifles. You need to declare a ceasefire for the archery folks and make sure racoons are not living around the target. Rifles except 22s are a royal PITA to shoot. So I took the easy way out. I only dry fired the Bushy. I will go to TTC to shoot my Bushmaster which FYI only cost around 700 bucks back then. I have heard Bushmasters are hit and miss but thought maybe buy a better one before the Gun "Safety" mob keeps moving ahead. I know it is not a done deal but Biden, bucky and Ms. Bonny Watson Coleman are moving forward as fast as possible before the next election. Totally agree that common sense would be to use the Bushmaster before buying a second AR. Again thanks for all your thoughtful replies!!!
  18. I bought my Bushmaster XM15-E2s NJ compliant model before Obama was reelected. It is still NIB and my SHTF insurance policy. My wife and I are looking to get out of PRNJ as soon as possible. My question is given all the new talk under Biden about new Gun Control with modern sporting rifles like ARs, should I buy another AR-15 now or wait until we get to a state where we can buy a rifle with better features like adjustable stocks??? Obviously, I can wait since my Bushmaster is still unfired. I just don't want to miss the boat. Also do other forum members have more than one AR-15???
  19. Yesterday, I received a text message out of the blue from someone asking me to sign a Ballot Petition to get Phil Murphy re-elected. Never was aware that an incumbent needed to do this. Please recall that dumb comment Murphy made to Fox news over his handling of the COVID-19 Epidemic. He said the Bill of Rights was above his pay grade during the interview, in reference to keeping liquor stores open but closing firearm stores and places of worship. I responded to the guy, "Has Murphy learned yet that the Bill of Rights is not above his pay grade???" Also to take me off their list. The guy replied immediately he'll do that he do it right away.
  20. I called my local NJSP barracks in Somerville. Although the Officer was very nice, he couldn't help because of COVID. He said he heard on 101.5 this am that in the Summer it may change. My permit expires in June and you get 6 more months if you pay a late fee. My only option is Gun for Hire at this point which is an hour away.
  21. Thank you. I will try the NJSP and report back.
  22. Thank you. I just tried my Somerset County BCI and who helped in the past but can't now due to Covid. The reason was it is not possible to clean the ink rollers properly.
  23. Due to Wuhan Virus, I am having trouble having fingerprint cards done by a LEO as required for Florida CCW renewal. The nearest place I found is an hour North at Gun for Hire in Woodpark NJ. Anyone know a place closer to Princeton or Somerville, NJ where a LEO can take paper prints?
