Recommended Posts

Doesn't say what else we did to get arrested for hollow points. Kind of curious.

 

Btw the mayor of this town is is Bloomberg's gang of mayors and he was looked at to be buono's running mate.

Maybe it was just one round rolling around the back of his car or truck.

 

If it had been a whole "brick" of .22 HPs, he might have been charged with 500-1000 felonies.

 

 

If he had a whole brick of .22 I'm sure the cop would have settled for a trade :)

It was a traffic stop, he was in violation of traffic laws say speeding or something stupid, he can be charged with having hollow point bullets because he was unlawful. 

 

I have mentioned this before in other threads just plain sucks on how they can charge you for hollow point ammunition.

So being pulled over for speeding on way to range can make you a felon in this state?

Mmm he had it right before you fixed it.

 

 

Nope. Jon had it right:

 

 

I'm willing to bet he was in possession of hollow point ammunition outside the listed exemptions in NJ law. Crazy, I know.

 

 

You are only allowed to possess hollowpoints in NJ under certain exceptions to the law. When people go around talking about "transport" laws they make people think they can have guns or hollowpoints but just have to be careful about how they put them in their car. Nothing could be further from the truth. You are not allowed to have them in the first place, unless you meet an exception.

Ok so hollow points are not allowed in NJ? Forgive my ignorance but its only been a year since ive been here.. What about jacketed hollow points? Cabelas sells the Winchester JHPs and when you look at them they dont have the typical hollow point look (as its jacketed). So whats everyone use for defensive rounds?

All hollow nosed bullets are legal in NJ ONLY under exemptions - home, place of target practice, place of business, or gunsmith. In fact you CANNOT move them to another home you own/lease, as we found out in The Aitken case. Yes jacketed hollow points are hollow nosed bullets. Yes the prohibition is on bullets not cartridges, so an inert cartridge like a keychain can get you arrested.

 

The alternative is to use a hollow nose bullet with a polymer tip like powrball or critical duty. These are ok under nj law.

OP link is very ambiguous - what else was he doing? Did he have a FID? Was the amo not locked up in car or trunk?...HP is legal as long as you follow the rules.

 

carry a copy of this when you go to the range:

You can buy'em, you can take um home, you can take it to a registered range, you can shoot em...

Provided certain conditions are met, a sportsman may transport and use hollow point ammunition. There are no restrictions preventing a sportsman from keeping such ammunition at his home.

N.J.S.A 2C:39-3f(1) limits the possession of hollow nose ammunition. However, there is a general exception that allows for the purchase of this ammunition but restricts the possession of it to specified locations. This exception provides that:

(2) Nothing is sub section f (1) shall be construed to prevent a person from keeping such ammunition at his dwelling, premises or other land owned or possessed by him, or from carrying such ammunition from the place of purchase to said dwelling or land . . . [
N.J.S.A
26:39-3g (2)].

Thus a person may purchase this ammunition and keep it within the confines of his property. Sub section f (1) further exempts from the prohibited possession of hollow nose ammunition "persons engaged in activities pursuant to
N.J.S.A
2C:39-6f. . . ."

N.J.S.A
26:39-3f. (1).

Activities contained in N.J.S.A 26:39-6f. can be broken down as follows:

1.A member of a rifle or pistol club organized under rules of the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and which filed its charter with the State Police;

2.A person engaged in hunting or target practice with a firearm legal for hunting in this State;

3.A person going directly to a target range, and;

4.A person going directly to an authorized place for "practice, match, target, trap or skeet shooting exhibitions."

this is not true.. 

hollow point ammo is NOT an add on charge... it is a charge if the person is not operating within the exemptions..

You are misinforming people on this thread.

 

Plugging a hollow point with plastic does not make it a full metal jacket.

 

 

 

Nobody even suggested that it made it a full metal jacket. What are you talking about?

    • I used to fly out of Newark with some regularity with handguns, but it's been at least 10 years.   I'd get there plenty early, and bring with me copies of the airline policy on checking guns, and the Federal law that backed up the airline policy...because occasionally you'd get a ticket agent who was convinced that it couldn't possibly be legal, and you need to be able to convince them that they need to check with a supervisor instead of just telling you 'no'.   But usually it was straightforward, at least back then. Assuming they still use the orange 'Firearm' tags that you sign certifying the gun is unloaded, etc, those tags go INSIDE the suitcase.  Many years ago they had to go on the outside, which was like a big fluorescent 'Steal Me' sign on your suitcase.   That policy changed to inside-the bag quite a while ago, but you don't want the one agent who didn't get the memo to put it on the outside of your bag. I wonder if shipping the air pistol is an option?  NJ would probably consider it illegal, as they pretend it's a real gun, but wherever you are going almost certainly knows better...and the Feds don't care.   But that might leave you with the problem of getting it back into NJ, if that is your intent.  If it's a one-way trip for the air pistol and if you aren't too far from PA, I'd consider driving across the border and mailing the gun, especially if you can use a non-NJ address for the return address. It IS legal to ship long guns to yourself...not sure about handguns.  USPS and UPS both allowed it, though again the counter clerk will be convinced you can't do it, and someone is going to have to look up the law for them.   Shipping to yourself, if you are physically present from where it is sent, and then are physically present to receive, is legal because it is NOT a transfer.
    • When I lived in NJ, I flew out of Philly many times with a rifle/handgun. No issues at all.    Follow the advice on the airline website. You’ll need a hard sided, lockable case. Do NOT use TSA locks.    You will be required to open your case and display the weapon is clear.  You will fill out a form, which will be locked inside the case.  TSA may or may not desire to inspect the case and/or the bag the case is inside. That’s up to them. 
    • I have to fly out of Newark to Denver on United later in the month with a Handgun.  Hard to get solid advice and impossible to get through to United customer service.  It is actually an air pistol.  I was advised to fly out of Philly, it is a non issue there, but I had to book out of Newark.  I was told to ask someone who has done it before and value their advise.  I figured this would be the best place to start.  Thanks for any help. John
