Good Evening from Sussex County

Recommended Posts

Good Evening All,

New to the Morris/Sussex border area, and coming from an even more restrictive place than NJ, happy to finally have (some of) the ability to exercise my 2a rights. 

I have participated a bit here and there on the Reddit /njguns forum but figured this might be a good place, as well. 

Currently have 4 items in my growing "collection" (2x 9mm handguns, 2x 5.6/.223 AR-15 variants), and certainly excited to add more in the near future (most pertinently, a PCC AR). 

Nice to meet you all!

Welcome. I'm now in Sussex, formerly all in Morris since the age of three.

More restrictive than NJ eh? Must be suffering PTSD. (Post Traumatic State Disorder)

Good luck with the recovery. If you haven't already, apply for your FID and some handgun purchase permits. It may take six months or more depending on exactly where you live.

What State is more restrictive? Even California allows CCW if you pay off the Sheriff. 

It's hard to say who is worst.

You can get a CCW in much of CA and NY, but it all depends on where you live.  If you're in the wrong place, you have no more chance of getting a permit than you do in NJ.

California passed the bill requiring background checks for all ammo sales while blocking mail order sales and even bringing in ammo purchased out of state.   It got overturned by a judge, then re-instated on appeal, and to be honest I don't know if it is currently in effect or not.   CA also has that wacky list of 'approved' handguns, so a lot of handguns that are legal here aren't legal there.

Thank you all! 

While it ain't much, we in NJ still have it a lot better than folks in NYC and CA have it; my experience of a 3.5 month turnaround time on my FID/handgun permits and being able to then purchase (even limited) AR-15-style weapons would be a dream for anybody in NYC and would be problematic for most in CA, as well. 

Plus, the Sussex-area is actually a nice place to live, can't say that for the most part about NYC or (much of) CA lol

    • I really wish I could be there after you return to Texas and are chewing the fat with your old pals, and whoops...  A little bit of Jerz slips out.  They may even tar and feather you. 
    • Re: Training - Since it is a "right" (hahahahahaha...this is NJ...oh, I made myself sad. ), will we be implementing training for any other "rights?"  I'm guessing the state of NJ will also manage to set some sort of fee for this training as proof of completion, and that fee will of course be a reasonable sum of only $500 (to the state) and that courses will obviously only be available february 29th or the 5th Wednesday of any month.   Safe storage - *I* feel a reasonable person would think ones own home would be a secure location.   .50s - We see so many drive by .50bmg  shootings in this state. Sure would be nice if I didn't have to coat everything in 5" thick AR500 to prevent getting shot daily. So yes, lets ban all weapons over .50 cal. Coincidentally, lotta shotguns would become immediately illegal, so bonus for them!   Those damn kids - Government can send em off to war at 18, where I'm sure no one handles any guns ever. Maybe NJ should mandate that no NJ soldiers handle guns until 21, either. After all, they aren't with a parent or guardian. Strange how that being an adult thing shifts around depending on what it is you'd like to do...    Electronic ammo bullshit - I know of competitors who order multiple cases of .22 - 5000 per case. Just think how NJSP will salivate over going after that potential mass murderer with a single shot .22...  Besides, ammo is so cheap and plentiful these days, whats some more layers of bullshit to add to that?   Microstamping - glad things like millions of pistols in circulation, files, and spare firing pins don't exist. And better police your brass. Just go to ranges and collect free brass and spread it wherever you see fit to waste your own taxpayer dollars on useless investigations which will go nowhere anyway.
    • We are so far past the Gates of Hell already, they're long gone in the rear view mirror. Given the lessons from Weimar & Nazi Germany from the 20s and 30s, there is but one path remaining ahead for us. IS THE LINE READY ON THE RIGHT ?
