In NJ when a piece of scum is arrested for a crime and have a firearm in their possession, the firearm charge is dropped for a plea bargain guilty plea on the other charge
If your a law abiding citizen caught in the NJ gun laws trap and they can't charge you with anything else they will fight tooth and nail to imprison you for that.
Case in point: A while back, (I'm thinking 15ish yrs ago) a guy was arrested, convicted and sentenced in NJ. His crime? He had a Hollow Point bullet in a drilled out case (OBVIOUSLY no powder) with a spent primer on his key ring.
Sad (discussing) thing is, its gotten worse since then.
In light of what's going on today apparently its OK to riot, loot, burn, physically assault, murder (assassinate LEO"s). But its not OK to holster a tool to defend yourself from it!
I live in a semi-urban town where I'm not in proximity to what the afore mentioned pieces of shit are doing. The peaceful protesters(?) are calling for the dispansion PD"s and the looters are loving it. I hope they do in places like NYC, Chicago, LA, Detroit. I would LOVE to see how that works out for them (fuking MORONS).
The statutes above are for the unlawful possession of weapons and does not cover the exemptions that allow for transporting weapons in this state for a LEGAL reason.
AFAIK, the only weapons in this state that are not limited in where they may be transported is rifles and shotguns with an FPID.. everything else is restricted.
This is what you have to work with to transport an "other" legally in state.
