  1. I recently moved to NJ. I do not have a FID because i have never purchased a firearm in NJ. Nowhere in the statutes and admin code do I see such a requirement for a carry permit.
  2. Exactly. I found this, too. Although they may change the Administrative Code.
  3. I tend to agree. I also think PDs and judges (to the extent the latter remain in the process) will NOT be looking for any bs excuse to deny -- because they'll know denied applicants will cure and re-submit, adding to the already overwhelming workload. i think PDs will eventually get to the point where they want to process these apps as fast as possible, so they can move on and be done with it. If you consider the number of CPLs in other states, the number of NJ apps could approach one million.
  4. Regarding Murphy's absurd attempt to make all private property off-limits by default (which would 100% be overturned under Bruen): I think (hope) he may have a difficult time getting that through the legislature. Check out these two Politico articles, which specifically mention new Senate Majority Leader Scutari's reluctance to move on gun legislation. The Dems are very concerned about losing control of the NJ legislature in the 2023 elections. Perhaps we should organize grassroots lobbying. Phil Murphy's first 2024 hurdle: New Jersey Democrats As Gov. Phil Murphy tries to burnish his image as someone who's putting progressive policies to work, he faces a major obstacle: A skittish Legislature led by members of his own party. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/06/25/phil-murphys-new-jersey-democrats-00041676 Scutari: Democrats strayed too far left in 2021 Scutari, though a North Jersey Democrat, has developed alliances with members of his party from South Jersey. https://www.politico.com/news/2022/04/19/scutari-democrats-too-far-left-2021-00026236
  5. I think the estimated 200k is for applications to the state police, from out of staters, etc. I think with local PDs, the amount of applications could be near one million. Look at the data from other states.
  6. DeerSlayer, Thanks for posting the exchange with Hudson's office. Very interesting to see the evolution of the wording. Since that correspondence, the wording has changed again, and for the better. Late November: Mid-December: Jan. 3: In other words, now, a permit from "a" state is good in "any" state, period. No qualifier after "any." This is what was necessary to "save" us.
  7. Perhaps it's because I've only suffered under New Jersey's tyranny for the past five years. I can still taste the relative freedom of my native Michigan. I want my freedom back; even if I'm stuck in New Jersey!
  8. I think we get eight. 23 Dems are up for re-election in 2018; and 10 of those are from Trump states. Check out this list: http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/306210-10-senate-seats-that-could-flip-in-2018 And even if we can't get eight, I think we have the political capital to have this bill passed within a budget bill via reconciliation; or even by nuking a filibuster.
  9. More to Like About the Hudson Bill The Hudson Bill limits enforceable gun-free zones, and eviscerates state mag and ammo laws. Limits on enforceable gun-free zones: There will be no "death by a thousands cuts." Under section (b) the only enforceable state/local laws are "laws of any State that -- " So, there could be "force of law" no-carry signs on local businesses. And there could be gun-free zones ON state or local property. But note that it says "ON." Meaning, no bans within 5,000 ft of schools type laws. The biggest problem here would be bans on carry on public transportation. But all in all, section (b) makes effective bans through onerous state carry restrictions impossible. Eviscerates state mag and ammo laws: Love this! Section (e) defines terms in Section (a), including: "Any magazine," and "any ammunition." I suppose this could be better drafted to include "any number of bullets in any magazine." But I believe the intent is clear. And for those of us in New Jersey, the whole hollow-point carry ban would be moot.
  10. Let's try that link again: https://hudson.house.gov/uploads/Concealed%20Carry%20Reciprocity%20Act%20of%202017.pdf
  11. Friends, I just had a back-and-forth with Kerry Picket of the Daily Caller. Here is a link to the newly revised bill: https://hudson.house.gov/uploads/Con...0of%202017.pdf The new bill deletes the line that would have limited the reciprocal right to carry to non-residents. a) Notwithstanding any provision of the law of any 9 State or political subdivision thereof (except as provided 10 in subsection (b)) and subject only to the requirements 11 of this section, a person who is not prohibited by Federal 12 law from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving 13 a firearm, who is carrying a valid identification document 14 containing a photograph of the person, and who is car 15rying a valid license or permit which is issued pursuant 16 to the law of a State and which permits the person to 17 carry a concealed firearm or is entitled to carry a con 18 cealed firearm in the State in which the person resides, 19 may possess or carry a concealed handgun (other than a 20 machinegun or destructive device) that has been shipped 21 or transported in interstate or foreign commerce, in any 22 State that— ‘‘(1) has a statute under which residents of the 24 State may apply for a license or permit to carry a 25 concealed firearm; or ‘‘(2) does not prohibit the carrying of concealed 2 firearms by residents of the State for lawful pur 3poses. This from Kerry of the Daily Caller: I updated my first piece to address this issue. A congressional source told me this: "an individual from one of those states may obtain a non-resident CCP from a state that recognizes the right to carry. All CCP holders (whether resident or non-resident) still have to abide by all the laws of the state in which they are carrying concealed." Here is a pull from her new story, posted today: This would mean that even law abiding individuals who are residents in tough restrictive gun law states like Maryland, California, and New York, for example, can use a non-resident concealed carry permit from another state, like Utah, to conceal carry in their own state. If this language survives the bill's arduous journey, we will finally be able to carry in our own state.
