  1. Yes, this makes sense. It explains the part of the law that says that an applicant must be of "good character and good repute in the community." This provision makes absolutely no sense whatsoever today, but probably sounded reasonable back in the old times when everyone knew everyone else in town.
  2. Yet all the NJ gun rights groups choose not to do anything about this at all. They do nothing to challenge the permit system, and would rather spend all their energy on less important things like magazine capacity. Would you rather have a gun that is limited to 10 rounds, or get killed because you have no gun at all because you're sitting around waiting for the corrupt and incompetent police department to issue your permit?
  3. If I moved to NJ from, say, California in the last ten years, then when I apply for an FID they send a letter to CA asking if I've ever been thrown into a looney bin in that state. So if I go to apply for subsequent permits, it would be silly of them to ask CA again, since they've already told them that I haven't, and I haven't lived in that state since my first application. So why don't they just look in their files and see that the query has already been answered? They should, but I have a feeling they don't.
  4. When you apply for a permit to purchase a handgun, and you already have an FID, do you have to do the entire process again? I understand that you don't have to get re-fingerprinted, but do they send the mental health check again to the states you lived in before New Jersey? I mean, if they already got that information from those states, isn't it in their files? I obviously haven't been committed in another state if I haven't been back to that state since coming to NJ. Also, do I have to get two references again like I did the time before? Other than fingerprinting, what else is different when you apply for the permit after you've gotten an FID? Do they use the information they already have in their files?
  5. Do you think they might also bring back the Model 15 one day?
  6. Wouldn't it also be a good idea to go after the FID card rules and the permit to purchase requirement? In most states you can just go to a gun store and do a background check. You do not have to apply to a police department for permission to own a gun. And the PD can take as long as they want. Is anyone working on that, and what would it take to bring down this system? Do some gun owners like the system because it keeps the nuttier element from building arsenals? If so, OK fine, but there should at least be a way to prevent the PD from taking seven months to process your permit.
  7. The credentials listed on his website do not say anything about a medical degree. He seems to have a PhD in psychology, but no MD. https://gpirelli.com/?page_id=959 https://gpirelli.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Dr.-Pirelli-CV.pdf
  8. Note that the statute (2C:58-3 c(3)) says that a person with some kind of defect or disease must produce "a certificate of a medical doctor or psychiatrist licensed in New Jersey, or other satisfactory proof, that he is no longer suffering from that particular disability in such a manner that would interfere with or handicap him in the handling of firearms." I have seen this interpreted as meaning that you need a letter from a physician, a doctor, such as a psychiatrist, NOT a psychologist. So it is very lucky to find a psychiatrist who will do this for $750. I would imagine though that Dr. Pirelli, who I believe is a psychologist and not a medical doctor, should probably count as "other satisfactory proof."
  9. OK, but what is the difference between the products described in the article, and US LawShield, which IS sold in New Jersey? They all seem to be the same thing: they cover legal expenses in case of a self-defense incident, right? Secondly, what law says they can't sell these things in NJ? I understand there's some sort of executive order to that effect, but no actual law was ever passed was it?
  10. As far as I can see though, the NJ statute does not seem to say anything about transporting ammo, at least not as far as I can find. I don't know where the ammo and the magazine part on the NJSP website came from.
  11. OK, but what difference does the weight of the projectile make? How does that affect me when I'm shooting? What practical result does it have in the real world or at the range?
  12. Looking at the laws and at what folks have posted, it's pretty clear: according to the statute, the case does not need to be locked, and if it's in a fastened case that isn't locked, it doesn't even need to be in the trunk. You could theoretically throw a naked gun with no packaging in the locked trunk. So by putting a fastened case with no lock in the trunk, I'm already going above and beyond the statute. The interstate transportation laws say it has to be in the trunk or, if there's no trunk, locked in a case. This is stricter than the NJ statute. The contradiction that Mr. Stu mentioned is in the State Police website where it says, "Firearms shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported. If the vehicle does not have a compartment separate from the passenger compartment, the firearm and or ammunition shall be in a locked container other than the vehicle's glove compartment or center console and kept farthest from the driver." The first line comes from the NJ statute, and the second comes from the interstate transportation law, and contradicts the first. But still, I can see why a person would want to go a little above the exact statute just to be on the safe side. When I bought a gun in California a few years ago, I went overboard trying to prove to myself and anyone who might ask how serious I was about gun safety. I put a cable lock AND a trigger lock on the gun, then put the gun in a case and locked the case with a padlock, and threw the whole thing in the trunk. Now that I think about it, that might have been a little excessive, because how do you keep track of all those keys?
  13. What you say clears up a lot. The NJ statute just says "fastened case" OR "locked in trunk," but the NJSP website states that then randomly adds the FOPA part about how if you don't have a trunk you have to keep it in a locked case. I always wondered why those two statements on the State Police website contradict each other.
  14. I'm actually just planning on driving it home from the gun store. So if you bought a new Glock and you had a car with a trunk, you would feel pretty comfortable just transporting it home in that case without any lock on it? Or would you wanna be extra cautious and move it to a lockable case anyway?
  15. Question: Does the case that a new Glock comes in have a hole that I can put a padlock in to lock it?
