  1. What ANYONE THINKS doesn't matter! What the RULES ARE matters. Nothing has substantially changed in the qualification process except now you need to score 80% in order to qualify (200 x 250). And you need to do it WITH THE GUN YOU'RE GOING TO CARRY! So, since there isn't a "Change Form", you'll have to qualify with your new, unpurchased & unregistered (and UNPRACTICED WITH) handgun. ~R
  2. ^^^^THIS! Superior Court Judges still have to actually try cases and not just hold ccw hearings. NJSP Superintendent Callahan was quoted as expecting 200 THOUSAND applicants to come outta the woodwork, so.... I feel that they (Superior Court Judges) themselves will say to the legislature, "Sorry, you'll have to find someone else to do this!"...and the system will morph from what we have now---going up against a County Prosecutor---to more of a "Shall Issue" arrangement and the CLEO's will be the last word. The same CLEO's that hate guns and stall permits to purchase... EVERYBODY NEEDS TO CALM THE EFFF DOWN and wait for Schmutter & Bach to come up with the Road Map. Everything else is just BULLSHIT at this point and a waste of time dealing with "What-If's"........ ~R
  3. MODELS WANTED AGES 8-13 FOR JULY 10 CNJFO PHOTO SHOOT! HELP US TAKE BACK THE NARRATIVE BY TEACHING GUN SAFETY! by Black Wire Media Thur. June 9, 2022 https://www.cnjfo.com/join-us Do YOU have a son or daughter OR grandson or granddaughter that is comfortable around guns and available for a day-long Photo Shoot taking place on a private farm in southern New Jersey on Sunday July 10, 2022? We'd like to hear from you! CNJFO is scheduling a Modeling Shoot with professional photographers whose images will show youngsters dressed in and using "sponsor swag" and firearms and accessories donated to us. Given current events, we're being proactive in defending Second Amendment rights by showing youth enjoying the American outdoor lifestyle while using items donated by our amazing sponsors. It's both a "thanks" to our sponsors AND making a statement that today's youth should be taught gun safety. Parent / Guardian signatures are required for event release forms and model releases. Parent / Guardian must remain on site. Some shooting with ammunition is expected; all safety equipment will be provided. Event will be catered; restroom and changing room (if needed) is provided. Images will remain the property of CNJFO, and might appear in sponsor advertising, catalogs, social media, etc. Serious inquiries ONLY; direct all responses to CNJFO Youth Outreach Chair Eric M. Saperstein! Yours in the fight to save the 2nd Amendment from TYRANNY, Eric M. Saperstein 609-658-2955 / [email protected] CNJFO Youth Outreach Chair Like what we're doing and want to help offset the cost of this unique event? Please consider making a DONATION from anywhere in America (we're a 501(c)3 Tax-Exempt Corp.) at: https://www.cnjfo.com/Donate
  4. I don't know why exactly, but this image reminds me of Donald Sutherland's character Oddball in "Kelley's Heros". With Moriarity havin' all them "NEGATIVE WAVES", lol!
  5. No. I noticed this years ago when this video first hit YouTube. Did you see the video with a symphony member in the Percussion Section shooting the cap gun? From the movie, "A Few Dollars More" :
  6. You're on the 30 Day Clock to file the appeal. Forget the CLEO meeting. Figure out how many thousands of bucks you have to put towards this, and call a lawyer. Make sure that your lawyer is a firearms specialist, NOT a generalist that's a friend of the family. ANJRPC has a list they recommend (free initial consult to ANJRPC members btw) and Pisano (from above) is on that list! Getting someone qualified to give you "the letter" saying you won't harm yourself takes time & MONEY. It's not a single visit. Your attorney will know in what order things need to get done (filing appeal, expungement, reapplication) and about what the fees are. If you have dual residency in another state DO NOT TRANSFER any firearms. Lying on a 4473 opens up a whole new can of worms. Good luck! ---R
  7. My Op-Ed from earlier today: WILL BUYING LEGAL POT GET YOUR GUNS TAKEN AWAY? MARIJUANA POSSESSION & USE STILL ILLEGAL FEDERALLY! Op-Ed by Dave "Rosey" Rosenthal, Black Wire Media Editor in-Chief Thursday April 21, 2022 www.cnjfo.com/join-us As of today, April 21, 2022, recreational marijuana (pot) is legal in New Jersey if purchased from a licensed, regulated & taxed business that sells it to individuals that produce identification such as a driver's license. Let's celebrate, right? NO, not exactly... As 2A advocates have been pointing out to all those with deaf ears, in order buy firearms at a gun store (FFL) legally in this country, you have to first fill-out a BATF&E form #4473 and check-off a box swearing you're NOT a user of pot---even medical exemptions aren't allowed! In fact, you can't even possess ammunition! Gun dealers have been warned to be on the lookout for pot users and to REFUSE TO SELL ANY FIREARM or ammunition to any person that says they are a "user" on the #4473 firearms transfer form! ENTRAPMENT OR BACK DOOR GUN CONTROL, YOU DECIDE! Although Police agencies around the state have been alerted to not arrest "legal users", you still can't grow your own or buy bags of pot on the street because the state doesn't see tax money from the sale & use. Will the Justice Department seek to learn WHO uses legal pot? Will information be SHARED to the BATF&E data base to "provide common sense solutions for gun crime" so as to enable the feds to round-up "high" gun owners in buses for lying on a gun transfer form? Where will all of the CONFISCATED GUNS be stored, and will there be any way for gun owners to ever see or use them again? And WHY is no one else talking about this, eh? Since not even the legitimate use of medical marijuana is allowed federally, does the partner or spouse of a medical MJ user have their gun rights VANISH too? Will "Refer Madness" cause gun safe doors to fly open all on their own and firearms start "just going-off" all by themselves? What about a police academy cadet living at home with a parent needing medical marijuana? Do we disarm her/him because mommy has breast cancer and her medical MJ makes life bearable? Will the current Anti-Gun administration appoint a Director to BATF&E that is willing to eliminate the cannabis question on the 4473's we fill out at every FFL transfer, and how long do gun owners have to wait for all the pieces of the MJ puzzle to fall into place so every time they touch a firearm or buy a box of shells, they're not committing a FEDERAL CRIME? What are other states that made MJ legal to possess and use currently doing? Does the BATF&E even care? Does ANYBODY care? Unless & UNTIL the federal government makes marijuana "legal", any possession, transfer, ownership, transportation or use of a firearm is ILLEGAL! So why is the New Jersey Attorney General giving every police officer in the state a special "carve-out" to smoke pot off-duty? How do cops buy guns legally when they have to fill out the same #4473 form we all do? So police cadets in training that "light-up" can't own guns, but those that pass the academy training can? LOTS of unintended consequences need answered! Maybe it's time to CHANGE THE FEDERAL LAW? What's your "take" on all of this, we'd like to know?
  8. CNJFO has a squad that will be there. Attending this worthwhile event for the Coalition's "Dusters And Missers Club" will be CNJFO Life Member @Ms. 12 Gauge and @Mr.Stu and two others proudly representing! Here's a jpg of the flyer: Here's Ms. 12 Gauge accepting her award for High Lady at the CNJFO Sporting Clays I ran a while back: I can't be in two places at once and am running the CNJFO Hog Hunt in Bainbridge, PA the same morning! I wish you great success and hope you raise the funds needed to get the kids to the Nationals! Rosey
  9. Do you need them right away or can you wait until the first weekend in June? WW2 Reenactors all over the Reading, PA Air Show at MAAM. Lots of vendors to choose from, and all grades of ammo pouches, belts, etc. Watch fighters & bombers all day long, even a B-29! Rides are pricey bucket list items. Plenty to see & do on the grounds of Reading Regional Airport! Mid Atlantic Air Museum https://www.maam.org ---Rosey
  10. Nick has much more experience than I in terms of current offerings by the latest manufacturer's lines. My go-to's are Oliva-V, Liga #9, La Gloria Cubana Churchill, and for a morning smoke I still like a Macanudo Prince Phillip Cafe. I like my full-bodied sticks in the afternoon & evening, especially after a sweet dessert & coffee. Rosey
  11. @Mr.Stu THIS^^^. I have 46 1/2 YEARS worth of mags at my son & dil's house in Pennsy. Guarded by a pair of the Queen's Dogs and a pair of cats. No trespasser dare enter The alarm would sound and said person would instantly become the center of affection
  12. NJ NICS IS NOW SHUT DOWN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE! BREAKING: NJ NICS DOWN AND NO IDEA WHEN IT WILL RESUME! 2,164 ALREADY BG CHECKED BUYERS WAIT FOR THEIR FIREARMS! by Black Wire Media Thurs. Mar. 10, 2022 www.cnjfo.com/join-us New Jersey's firearms permitting "Instant Check System" is DOWN and the state has NO IDEA when their redundant processing will resume! Much like trying to put a house fire out with a garden hose, the Firearms Unit is currently 2,164 checks behind, and was working on March 5th transfers when the entire system shut down! For those that are unaware, firearm buyers in NJ are already background checked to obtain their firearms ID cards used for buying long guns (NJFPID) and they're already background checked BY THE SAME FIREARMS UNIT when their handgun permits are emailed to them! So this needless, redundant check is now PREVENTING legal gun buyers---that already passed a background check---to obtain their firearms at point of transfer! Since handgun permits are issued with an expiration date, as NJ residents can't be trusted with guns and might knock-over a bank or a liquor store between the time they apply for a permit and the time they actually obtain the transfer, some gun buyers will be told their handgun permits HAVE EXPIRED due to the DELAY caused by the state! Worse yet, every firearms transfer in NJ is treated as a first-time buyer making their first purchase! So collectors with a proven track record of NOT being arrested for firearms violations sit in the same line needlessly waiting and causing more "traffic jam" of the transfers to first-time buyers! A right delayed is a right DENIED and the state of New Jersey absolutely loves to delay and deny firearms rights, so here we go again! #CNJFO #2A #2AHeavyLifters #2ashallnotbeinfringed
  13. Greetings to all of the Debbie Downers & Doubting Thomas's here on the Board! And greetings to the Lurkers and everyone else that reads and doesn't post for fear of finger pointing by armchair experts & commandos living in their mom's basement. Did I piss-off EVERYBODY yet? No? Then please keep reading, lol! This Bill is designed to start a conversation among Legislators, NOT give us Constitutional Carry. For that reason, it might make it to the Law & Public Safety Committee of the Senate. While there it can be altered & amended as needed to conform to Bruen if we get a positive outcome at SCOTUS. The Bill is far from perfect in its current form. Your Second Amendment Advocates KNOW this! Our rights will be won back incrementally, just as they were taken away. I'm on the Senator's Advisory Panel with Anthony Colandro, Theresa Inacker, and Mark Cheeseman. What's missing from this thread is the "Call To Action" that's needed to get the Bill co-sponsored. So instead of doing the usual bitchin' about face-value imperfections and plain-text readings, how about calling or sending a letter to your district Legislators asking them to co-sign the Bill, eh? Or is it too hard to quit bitchin' and actually DO SOMETHING TO HELP? https://www.njleg.state.nj.us/districts Rosey
  14. CNJFO'S APRIL 3 & 10, 2022 HOG HUNTS NOW BOOKING!! ANY WEAPON, NO LICENSE, PUBLIC INVITED TO HUNT WITH US! by Black Wire Media Thur.

  15. Sorry to hear of your loss. @EdF listen to @Mr.Stu and you'll do fine Surviving widows living in NJ without Yellow Cards number in the tens of thousands (or higher). Some of them are in senior care facilities or hospice and their offspring have "Power of Attorney" over their affairs. If a Power of Attorney exists, you can "sell" the handgun to yourself and enclose a copy of the Power of Attorney with the copy of the permit going to the CLEO and the NJSP. "Back in the Day" direct relatives just gave firearms to surviving family members w/o any paperwork... ~R
  16. EXACTLY! To tell EVERYONE here the truth, I'm getting a little tired of low-post-count Newbies to the forum with their pre-launched salvo of, "Don't say Pirelli" when their ass is in a sling. And then all you hear is CRICKETS when you give the OP the real scoop (FACTS) on the matter. I'm beginning to think that some of these Posters are too cheap to fight for their 2A rights and are too embarrassed to type it...
  17. It's an either / or type situation. Pirelli will do fine, and in fact specializes in these cases. You MAY have misunderstood the request by the Detective Bureau OR the Detective is misunderstanding the requirements (imagine THAT!)? Did you call Pirelli's office to ascertain what is happening and get turned-down OR is there some other confusion mixed-in here?
  18. It truly saddens me to be so disrespected. As the Vice President of a non-profit NJ Second Amendment organization that teaches women & kids how to shoot, and run strictly by unpaid volunteers, I can assure you I'd rather go back to multiple discipline competition shooting on all three popular platforms PLUS black powder, than having bull excrement such as the above thrown at me by uninformed emotional out-of-touch malcontents. Raising funds to put towards LAWSUITS and Amicus Briefs is hard work, especially when we're busy carrying everybody else's water since most here on this board aren't members. I really don't appreciate being painted with a wide brush! David Rosenthal, VP Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners (CNJFO) P.S: If you want to know why most 2A folks don't bother with this board, THIS type of post is why!
  19. I can vouch for this man! Every Penney he makes on these sales goes to us at CNJFO and WE'RE SINCERELY GRATEFUL! To join NJ's busiest Second Amendment organization, go to: https://www.cnjfo.com/join-us Rosey
  20. @Mr.Stu WAY TOO MANY Pink Card holders have NO idea that THIS^^^^ is a THING! And @david8613 I'll go one step further. You don't need to be SIGHTED or pass an eye test to own a firearms collection. It's NOT considered to be a disability (being legally blind!). If it were, semi-blind diabetics would be subject to arrest and their collections "confiscated for the greater good"... `Rosey
  21. Rocco is great and yes he's a life member of CNJFO! YES, do yourself a favor and use references that have solid emails and aren't always telling their friends & family that "they have to search in their spam folders"! More delays this way and easily avoided by using someone with a good working email! Rocco volunteered at our Youth Day at the Range last Sunday! He was our CRSO for the event. 20 kids mentored by our instructors, myself included Quite a nice day! Here's a couple pix:
  22. @Vitalian2184 Not really, so long as you place your range bag (do you have one of those that holds a handful of pistols in "pistol rugs"?) with UNLOADED hand guns--and loaded mags in a separate compartment--as far away from the driver as possible. Then use a blanket as has been mentioned by the other learned folks here. After a while you'll get the gist of whom to ask and listen to. I'm one of THOSE, lol. I have a half-century of firearms experience. My first hand gun purchase was a "Straw Purchase" from my father. He bought the gun new at the FFL and I bought it from him a minute later. In 1977 when I was 18 and 18 year olds could buy hand guns from anyone who wasn't a FFL, and do so right across a kitchen table! Then the FFL stapled the two forms together and mailed them to NJSP (proving a "straw purchase") in the same envelope, lol! I've been a witness to too many unconstitutional laws and rules being forced upon the NJ gun owner. It's why I helped form the Coalition of New Jersey Firearm Owners years ago. As a founding Trustee and Vice President, I'm quite active. Writing, shooting, mentoring, and running fundraisers like sporting clays, Hog Hunts and Pheasant Hunts. Teaching kids and women to shoot safely. And a multitude of other things. Check us out here: https://www.cnjfo.com and on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/cnjfo Photo from CNJFO Sporting Clays Tournament at Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays on August 29th. @Ms. 12 Gauge is a CNJFO "Lifer". She won the award for "High Lady". My medallion is for being a part of the highest scoring foursome. Let her chime in and say why she supports us!
