The over arching theme to all the bureaucratic nonsense is paperwork, lots of paperwork. The NJSP and local PD are not checking to see if the gun ranges are running a multi hour course and counting how many rounds are in the Q-target. So long as everyone has the paperwork in order, this whole thing moves along. My gun club still hasn't offered a qualifying course, they are overthinking this. The president even said it would take at least a year for this to go through the courts before we could carry. He was so wrong. Same goes for qualifying. GFH offers what they know works for security and retired LEO. Some local NRA instructor flat out refused to offer a class for this because the directives were so vague. I kind of knew to run as fast as possible to get everything submitted before Trenton had a chance to change things. Folks who apply in a few months may have a wholly different experience.
I emailed the Sheriff of Gloucester County regarding restrictions on which firearms you can carry. I mentioned that permits are being issued with restrictions based on qualified firearms. Here is his response:
You are correct according to NJS 2C:58-4(a) "One permit shall be sufficient for all handguns owned by the holder thereof but the permit shall apply only to a handgun carried by the actual and legal holder of the permit."
So until they change the law or amend it, this is the way it is. There was no direction given to any agency on how this was to take place. This leaves it up to agency discretion on what they will accept. Please refer to the following link https://nj.gov/njsp/firearms/pdf/NJSP_WEBSITE_REVISION_FOR_PTC_v2.pdf
Sheriff Jonathan M. Sammons
Based on his response, it is up to the individual agency's discretion as to whether they will allow firearms that are not listed on the permit. This is wild.
