  1. Plumsted Arms has launched a new web site which hopefully is more user friendly and is easier to navigate. https://www.plumstedarms.com
  2. And the New Hampshire Supreme Court has set a precedent in a case where an individual was prosecuted for having a loaded magazine "near" a firearm which was unloaded. The court ruled: Webster’s defined loaded as: “containing an explosive charge.” The New Hampshire Supreme Court added that “loaded” is the past participle of the word “load,” which is obviously a verb. The definition for the word “load?” “To put a load on or in a carrier, device, machine, or container. Specifically, to insert the charge or cartridge in the chamber of a firearm.” The justices also noted in their ruling that words and phrases are not read in isolation, but in context with the entire statutory intention. The justices refused to expand the definition of the word “loaded” to the broad nature that the prosecuting attorney and lower court wanted. “Under the State’s reading,” the justices ruled, “a person of ordinary intelligence would have to guess at how ‘near’ a pistol or revolver must be to a loaded magazine or clip to constitute a violation of [the law]. In contrast, interpreting a ‘loaded pistol or revolver’ as a pistol or revolver containing a cartridge in any position from which it can be fired eliminates the uncertainty: a pistol or revolver either contains a cartridge in such a position or it does not.” All that being considered here is the only truly and brutally honest post in this thread, and my last one for sure. NOBODY cares how Kman transports his magazines, with or without ammunition. This is at least 30 minutes of my life today that I will never get back. You see why I have not been around much PK90. What a waste of time.
  3. I don't understand your entire position anymore. You asked a question, one that has been asked on these forums many times, and you were given the best answer anyone could possibly provide without being speculative. But it seems that you aren't really looking for an answer because if you won't accept the written guidance from the state firearms unit who exactly will you accept guidance from. If the purpose of your post is to point out that me and people like me that load their magazines and transport them are in grave danger of prosecution and you are trying to protect me from that prosecution I say thanks, but no thanks. You see everything you postulate regarding the laws and how law enforcement will interpret them is based on nothing, just paranoia, although I guess paranoia is something. For me my behavior when it comes to adhering to the laws regarding firearms in general comes from knowledge and actual face to face communications with the very law enforcement people that are the subject of your paranoia. I have had the opportunity to sit with these folks many times as a condition of my license, and also along with them in working groups to try to help clarify the policies and laws in this state. And contrary to your speculative unwarranted judgment of these people, they are actually very knowledgeable, helpful, supportive and in some cases good private customers of mine. Since there really doesn't seem to be any purpose to your post other than to vent your unwarranted bitch slapping of law enforcement I say just transport your magazines unloaded and let's drop this post altogether. You do what you need to do to feel comfortable, I will continue to do what I do as everyone on these forums should do. By the way, you do know that police need probable cause to search your vehicle and if you are stopped for a routine traffic violation you are not required to disclose that you are lawfully carrying firearms. That being said if you have given a police officer probable cause that will stand up in court for searching your vehicle you probably shouldn't have been carrying the firearms at that time in the first place. That is strictly my opinion, I don't have another written document to back that up. I could ask my contacts at the state police what constitutes probable cause to search your vehicle but even if they put that in writing for me you probably wouldn't believe it either so why waste my time.
  4. Hey PK90, what's up. Where have I been hide'n? Away from this craziness. Just doing business, supporting gun owners, shooting matches and enjoying myself. Life is too short to debate the same old thing to death. There are so many lawyers and experts here nobody needs the factual opinion of a small part time dealer like me. Just servicing my customers and enjoying life.
  5. If your interested in what the firearms unit has to say read the Email they sent me back in 2017.
  6. Please don't make me repeat this over and over again. Any good attorney will tell you posting your case to the internet is a bad thing to do. If your processing CC with them you don't have my problem. If you have another "Premium" business relationship with them then you will have my problem once they find out your selling firearms. American Express is a bunch of companies neither of which knows what the other is doing. I still get all kinds of offers from their merchant services trying to get me to accept their card while a war wages on with their Premium Business Services. If your just processing AMEX cards they will gladly take their fees, that's what hypocrites do. If your one of the unlucky ones who got wined and dined into their Premium Business Services you may be looking for a lawyer some day also.
  7. If your experiences have been positive with AMEX that's a good thing. The intent of this thread was to find out if any attorneys that support this forum would be interested in a consultation. I need a lawyer and this was just one place where I though I might find somebody interested. If that wasn't an appropriate inquiry then please shut down the thread. Otherwise, any attorneys interested in a consultation?
  8. Long and lengthy story and I really don't want to try this case on the internet. They are anti-gun and will go to any lengths to shut down gun dealer's once they find out what you are selling, then they turn their sights on you personally. Another institution that thinks they are running things in this country and can do whatever they want. Looking for a cutthroat lawyer that will show them they can't violate the civil and constitutional rights of law abiding citizens and business owners. I figure if there are lawyer's willing to sue McDonalds for marketing happy meals there must be some willing to go after the real problems.
  9. Are there are any pro 2A lawyers interested in potentially taking on American Express for a host of constitutional and civil rights violations 2A related? PM if interested in discussing.
  10. I think everyone has missed the point in this law. The law applies to “licensed retail dealers” not FFL’s. In this state having an FFL does not mean you can deal in firearms. You must apply for a retail firearms license from the state. In fact the ATF wont even process your FFL until they get word from the state that you have applied for a retail license. The state wont issue a retail license to 03’s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. As strange as it may sound, there are many. I live in one and know several chief's of other towns that agree. Look at what is starting to happen in CA, the local townships and counties have had enough of the ultra liberal know it all BS. Most likely if you live north of 195 your out of luck.
  12. This has already been discussed and beaten to death. There is no magazine registration. The exception is strictly for "firearms" that have a fixed magazine capacity exceeding 10 rounds that cannot be modified, then you must register the firearm. NOT the magazine. If you have 15 round magazines modify them to accept 10 rounds and keep them. Permanently modified is very subjective here. The bottom line is if your magazine is field tested and does not accept more than 10 rounds with no apparent way to modify them to accept more than 10 rounds then keep them you are fine. So everyone is pissed off, so am I. But the bottom line is if just under 60% of the firearm permit holder's in NJ voted in the past election this a-hole would not be governor. Like it or not that's the math. I'm sure everyone on this forum voted, at least I hope so, so you and everyone else is wasting your breath. It's the other 40+ % of the firearm owner's you have to blame for this fiasco. What you should really be worried about is what this governor has up his sleeve next. He plans to make NJ it's own socialist country and to hell with federal laws. He has already proven that. The best everyone can do is keep contributing to the organizations that will sue. I suggest that we petition the "free" towns in this state and have their police chief's declare their towns "Safe Havens" for legal firearm owners and have them refuse to enforce the magazine laws. Let's see him argue that the towns are acting illegally when he is doing the same sh*t with federal laws.
  13. I know, tell that to the State Police Rookie making his bones.
  14. Type 07 is a manufacturer's license and I am not sure the requirements to receive a firearm are any different. But I have no experience with an 07 license so I can't accurately comment on your post. In NJ there are (as of Nov 2017) 394 FFL's of all types, and out of 394 there are 27 07 type licenses.
  15. Perhaps you should read the legislation. What laws in particular do you think we are exempt from? You would be really surprised. Yes, I can have an inventory of high capacity magazines, any capacity in my shop for sale outside of NJ. But no, I can't take them to the range and use them in the next steel match. I can have as many rifles, shop inventory, for sale with adjustable stocks, folding stocks, flash suppressors etc., but the only thing I can do with them is sell them outside of NJ. I can even deal in NFA stuff if I want and have suppressors and stuff like that for sale in my shop, but not to be sold to anyone in this state and not for me to personally use. I can't take any "evil stuff" as determined by NJ to the range and have some fun. If I want to transfer a pistol to my private collection I need a pistol permit just like you do. Frankly, there is only one law we are exempt from and that is based on how your FFL license is worded. If you are not incorporated and are a sole proprietor of your business and your license lists your name first, then and only then are you exempt from doing a NICS check on yourself if you want to transfer a gun to your own collection. That's precisely why my LLC, Plumsted Arms, is not on my license, my name and DBA are on the license. We are not exempt from any NJ laws the moment I carry a firearm outside of my shop and use it for personal use. At least that's what I get out of the last 20 or so times I read the stupid laws. Regardless I would not want to be stopped on the road with a 20 round magazine and try to explain to the police officer. Oh officer don't worry it's ok, I am an FFL. LOL Oh and for those that think being an FFL allows you to CC in this state, sorry wrong again.
  16. I knew I recalled something about this years ago. Here is the answer to your question. https://pjmedia.com/blog/if-the-government-shuts-down-what-happens-to-the-fbis-gun-purchase-background-check-system/
  17. Precisely and the NICS database is a stripped down version of the NCIC (National Crime Information Center). The NCIC is considered essential and now also used by Homeland Security. I doubt they would shut down the entire nations NCIC system. I recall several years ago when another Federal shutdown was threatened, one of many, the paper's listed essential services that would still be available. The FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies were "essential". Non essential stuff includes national parks and stuff like that.
  18. I think your wrong on the shutdown. First of all the NJSP Firearms unit wont be affected by a federal shutdown. Not like the state shutdown. Also the Federal NICS system is integrated into the national system for law enforcement and should remain on-line regardless. In fact if i remember correctly most all elements of the federal law enforcement system are considered essential. Besides how many times has the threat of a shutdown been used by congress as blackmail in the past. As optomistic as it sounds I doubt they will shut down, in my simple and humble opinion.
  19. LOL oh thanks somemore good news to start my day
  20. Thought so too but I couldnt find a bill addressing ammo purchases for the past 5 years.
  21. Exactly, I fear it's worse than originally thought. Every single bill that was stopped by Christie will be on the Governors desk. He will sign them all.
  22. So I am not a lawyer and the rest of this post is strictly my opinion which may be very wrong due to a lack of political experience. I grabbed a few cups of coffee and did a search of firearms bills that were particularly dangerous to the shooting community in the past several years. Here is my take on this. Please pour a stiff drink and take it for what it's worth coming from a green horn when it comes to politics and law. This is simply how I see it. I did a little lunch time work yesterday and cleaned it up last night. So if history is about to be made it’s going to be based on the following high impact list of bills that were tried over and over again but vetoed by Christie. I’m sure you can expect all of them to come back around in full force. A preview, the impacts range from having to have 5 references for a handgun purchase, 2 of which must be by a professional (your bosses), and one from a licensed health care provider in NJ, picture id’s on your FID and on all pistol permits, An all-out gun registration, micro-stamped parts on all handguns, an all-out ban on “traditional handguns” once smart gun technology becomes available for sale, The ability for everyone from a regular nurse to a “marriage counselor” being able to deem you unfit and therefore they take away your guns, 10 round magazines with 180 days to get rid of your higher capacity, unlawful to have a loaded gun or magazine in your home, A driver’s license FID endorsement which then would allow officers to have probable cause to search your vehicle if your stopped for a simple traffic violation, to more taxes and so on. Some of these bills have been sponsored in 2017, 206, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, and 2011. If you go searching for these bills on the NJ legislative site and come up with a different bill title for the same number you’re in the wrong year. Happy reading, by the way there are a lot more bills but these are the ones that will sting the most and will shut down gun ownership in NJ. Some of the bills introduced in past years will make it easier but don’t count on them ever coming up again. S804 Requires criminal history record background check for rifle and shotgun purchases. Say goodbye to face to face transactions in NJ. S816 Establishes commission to approve personaliized handguns; requires firearm retailers to sell personalized handguns.* This one has a lot of bad history and may come back as a devistaing bill. The original bill introduced "BANS" the sale of traditional handguns when personalized handguns become readily avilable. In Christie's veto statement he specifically called out this provision and chastized the Dem's for even trying that. It was removed in a vain attempt to get Christie to sign the bill which now requires a retailer to carry for sale a selection of personalized handguns on their premisis. The fear here is now the restraints are gone and you can expect an amendment to this bill which again moves to make all traditional handguns illegal to sell once smart guns become readily available, an open statement. S2417 Requires newly manufactured handguns to be micro-stamped; establishes handgun database. Yes, this is handgun registration. You will be required to register all of your firearms in the state. Two big problems. First any dealer that sells or transfer's a firearm that is not microstamped is subject to a $10,000 fine and/or up to 18 months in prison. Secondly it directs all retail firearms dealers to report handgun sales to the State Police (which I thought we already did by way of the permit). This puts all the FFL's out of business. Who is going to subject themselves to potential fines and jail while transfering a gun unless there is a way to be sure the gun is "micro-stamped". S3477 Establishes criminal penalties for sale and possession of certain firearm components. This one is not even available for review yet but word has it that it expands the 80% lower ban and includes any component that could be put on a firearm that would make it illegal (Adjustable Stock? etc) SCR117 Prohibits adoption of State Police proposed rule expanding justifiable need standard for issuing handgun carry permits. So in March 2016 The State Police attempted a rule change to allow the expansion of the justifiable need. Wouldn't have done much good, it was a minor expansion but bravo for them trying. This senate resolution by our wonderful D.Weinberg killed that attempt. A350 Disqualifies person named on federal Terrorist Watchlist from obtaining Firearms identification card or permit to purchase handgun. Last Session Bill Number: A253 Last Session Bill Number: A4680 S3062 Hopefully should not have any affect on legal gun owners in this state. A608 Requires successful completion of Firearms education program to obtain initial Firearms purchaser identification card and permit to purchase a handgun. Last Session Bill Number: A3764 S2355 Last Session Bill Number: A4859 Impact: On all individuals applying for an initial firearms purchaser identification card or permit to purchase a handgun. A1211 Revises certain laws concerning domestic violence and Firearms. Identical Bill Number: S805 Last Session Bill Number: A4218 (2R) S2786 (1R) Last Session Bill Number: A3697 S529 Impact: Chages make it easier to presume guilty and confiscate firearms and ID's. A2938 Requires Firearms seizure when mental health professional determines patient poses threat of harm to self or others. Identical Bill Number: S2615 Last Session Bill Number: A674 Impact: This one is particularly dangerous. First of all it allows for "Any person who is licensed in the State of New Jersey to practice psychology, psychiatry, medicine, nursing, clinical social work, or marriage counseling" to be able to act under this bill. Think about it, marriage counsler among others? Read this one, it's scary. A3327 Reduces maximum capacity of ammunition magazines to 10 rounds; exempts Firearms with .22 caliber tubular magazines from 10 round limitation. Identical Bill Number: S818 Last Session Bill Number: A2006 (1R) S993 (1R) Impact: Nothing to be said here, Anything for any reason over 10 rounds (LEO exempt) will be illegal and you have 180 days to get rid of 15 round magazines. A4071 Requires color photo on Firearms identification cards, permits to purchase handgun, and permits to carry handgun. Identical Bill Number: S2496 This one is a royal pain in the ass. Not only on the FID card but also on each purchase permit for a handgun. REGARDLESS of the fact that you must provide a valid government photo id anyway for purchase. How many pictures of a person do you need Mr. Singleton to be sure your looking at the right guy. A4179 Requires Firearms purchaser identification card, permit to purchase handgun, or permit to carry handgun for temporary transfer of firearm at firing range. Identical Bill Number: S2666 That's right, carry your FID card and make sure you don't let anyone without one try out your gun. This law is unlikely to mean anything because LEO generally isn't policing ranges, or are they? A4180 Requires Firearms purchaser identification card, permit to purchase handgun, or permit to carry handgun for use of firearm at firing range. Identical Bill Number: S2667 Same comment as above. A4791 Establishes crime of purchasing components to unlawfully manufacture untraceable Firearms. Better get rid of your 80% lowers. A4913 Increases fee for Firearms purchaser identification card; requires color photo on Firearms purchaser identification cards, permits to purchase handgun, and permits to carry handgun. Identical Bill Number: S3124 Can't require a picture on your FID without charging you more. You will probably be required to go to CVS and buy passport photos anyway. $5 -> $30 A673 Requires Firearms to be unloaded and securely locked or stored within home. Last Session Bill Number: A3752 Oh wait a minute Mr. Home Invader. First I have to unlock my gun, then load it. "Freeze Please". And tell me, under who's authority are you entering my house to see if my gun is loaded? A851 Requires Firearms endorsement on driver's license or non-driver identification card. Last Session Bill Number: A4001 This one is a bear trap. As the law exists now if you are stopped with firearms you are NOT required to produce any documentation that you have a FID or permit to purchase that firearm. That's the law. The firearm serial number may be run by the LEO to determine if it is lost, stolen or used in a crime but that's all. Under the provisions of this law you would be required to produce your driver's license as you normally would be thus alerting the LEO that you may be carrying firearms, probable cause to search to make sure you are transporting in accordance with the law. This one has all kinds of implications. A3707 Establishes a ballistics identifier program for certain Firearms. This one is just plain nuts. No gun can be sold without a "Ballistics identifier" which means an electronic or digitized image of a bullet and shell casing fired by the handgun or rifle that clearly shows the firiing pin, ejection, extraction and land marks for the particular gun. If the manufacturer does not provide certification then the sell has the responsibility to provide the state police with the fiream for ballistics identifier. A3727 Imposes additional five percent tax on sale of Firearms and ammunition to fund safety infrastructure improvements in public buildings. Self explinatory, another tax to line the politicians pockets. A3753 Increases references required for application for handgun permit and Firearms identification card from two to five. Nuts again, check this one out. Here is the noteworthy language: The application shall be signed by the applicant and shall contain the names and addresses of five references, two of which shall be character references from reputable citizens personally acquainted with the applicant, two of which shall be professional references, and one of which shall be from a medical professional licensed in this State. That's right you need your boss, his boss, and a doctor to give you references. Ultimate gun control by deception. A3815 Establishes enhanced penalties for persons who illegally sell or transfer Firearms that are subsequently used in a crime. Try to buy a gun from a dealer now if they are not a certified mind reader. A3884 Imposes gross receipts tax on retail sales of Firearms ammunition and use tax on use of certain Firearms ammunition; establishes "Gun Buyback Fund." Yes another bill to impose another tax. S2630 Reduces the maximum lawful capacity of ammunition magazines; prohibits possession of certain Firearms having a caliber of 50 or greater. This one much like the assembly bill seeks to limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds but also bans 50 caliber (exceptions for muzzle etc). Hey but don't worry, they want to put funding in place to buy back your firearms. I wonder what the state's going rate is right now for a Barrett 50 cal?
  23. This is Gizmo. He's a European Cream Golden Retriever. In this picture he was about 10 weeks old, about 16 pounds here. He's now 13 weeks old and his last vet visit he was 27 pounds. Just a gorgeous Golden. This is my second Golden Retriever from Woodridgegoldens.com in New Egypt. This is a special litter of Creams, they have two female's that are from Europe. Actually Gizmo's mother is from Sweeden. They also breed standard US Golden Retriever's as well, my last one (Sammy) from them was a stunning dog, pictured below Gizmo's picture. I highly recommend these folks for quality Golden Retrievers.
  24. That's my everyday price including tax, out the door. http://www.njgunforums.com/forum/index.php/topic/85510-wts-bulk-ammo-back-in-stock/
