Question for a..um...friend

Recommended Posts

So I have this...um...friend...who is moving to a new town in 2 weeks and apparently he has misplaced his FID card.  He thought is was in his safe, but alas, it is nowhere to be found.  The question is, should he go to his current town PD and request a duplicate before moving, or just wait until he gets settled in the new town and then just request a new FID with his new address and go thru the entire process all over again?  Can he go to the PD in his new town and say his FID got lost in the move.  He has the FID number from his PPs, just cant find the damn card anywhere.   Anyway, any info you can send my way...my...um friend will greatly appreciate it.  Thanks.

do in new town, you have to apply for change of address within 30 days of moving anyways by law for FID. Why pay twice and wait twice. It will be pretty much a start from scratch in both places anyways.

  

 

Don't you have to turn in your FID when you do a change of address?

You can do whatever you want. The law requires you to get a new one, but there is no penalty for not doing so. There is also no law saying your FID becomes invalid for not doing it. There are many reasons your FID can become invalid by law, and this is not one of them. Then again, this is New Jersey, and the lower case citizen dabbles in firearms at his own peril. Most NJ gun dealers probably won't sell you a gun and cops will probably bust you for possession of a firearm without a matching address (not in any statute or code) and a judge will probably back them up.

 

I am not a lawyer and you live in New Jersey so everything I just said might be factual but doesn't make a damn bit of difference.

If I had a personal document with my info on it, that related to firearms floating around in an unknown area.. personally.. I would bite the bullet and report it to someone.. just in case it shows up somewhere at some point... or in case I supposedly use it to buy a long gun that I didn't actually buy..

Same thing happened to me. I really did lose mine during a move. My new town did ask for my old ID card and I told them I lost it. I was instructed to destroy it if I ever found it. a few months later I found it (in my gun safe of all places) and ran it through the shredder

 Actually there is a law...and the card becomes invalid after 30 days.

TITLE 13. LAW AND PUBLIC SAFETY  

CHAPTER 54. FIREARMS AND WEAPONS  

SUBCHAPTER 1. FIREARMS PURCHASER IDENTIFICATION CARD AND PERMIT TO PURCHASE A HANDGUN

N.J.A.C. 13:54-1.7 (2015)

§ 13:54-1.7 Validity of a State of New Jersey firearms identification card and permit to purchase a handgun and form of register

 

   (a) A State of New Jersey firearms purchaser identification card shall be valid until such time as the holder becomes subject to any of the disabilities set forth by law and this subchapter pertaining to an applicant's eligibility. Upon becoming subject to any of the disabilities set forth in this subchapter, the card shall be void and shall be returned to the Superintendent within five days. A State of New Jersey firearms purchaser identification card shall not be valid for more than 30 days after the information contained therein is no longer reflective of the issued person, that is, current address, name change, and/or sex change.

It's worth noting that it's not illegal to own firearms in NJ without an FID card. The FID permits the purchase and transport of arms in NJ, not possession. Of course, this is only valid if the firearms were legally obtained, within NJ or otherwise.

      I just got my FID for long guns, although I don't know anything about guns or ammo. What is a good gun to get my hands on that will help me learn more but won't break the bank, at the same time being ideal at home defense?

      Hello,
      I have two questions regarding FID application. So I have seen three psychiatrists for ADD, and while I know this is not a disqualifying factor, I do not know the exact dates or years that I attended, and mind you that I am currently 20 and attended from ages around 7 to 17 or 18. This is a problem because the application asks this, and then asks for the names and dates of such occurences. Is it okay if I state that I do not know the dates of such occurences, or if I give the date estimations of which (I do know the names)? 
      My second question is regarding references. I do not know any police officers well enough to be able to ask them to use them for my FID, so will two friends that I grew up with do just fine? Thank you.

      After reading so many references to the new FARS application and registration system, I stopped by my local PD to check it out. I believe it’s worth mentioning that not all PD’s are currently using the new system. So, before paying any fee’s or signing on to FARS you should check which system your PD is using.
      Sorry if this info is redundant to another post, again thought it was worth noting as all fees are non-refundable
      Firearms Application & Registration System (FARS)
      The State of New Jersey is now accepting firearms applications for Firearms Purchaser Identification Cards and Pistol Purchase Permits electronically. 
      The following Web site will allow an applicant to apply for Initial and Duplicate Firearms Purchaser Identification Cards and Permits to Purchase a Handgun: 
      https://njportal.com/NJSP/FARS
      If you reside in a New Jersey State Police covered area and are certain which NJSP Station you are applying through, utilize the following ORI #’s to apply.  If you are not certain, contact the NJSP station to obtain the proper ORI before applying.  All fees are non-refundable.

      Guess the state has a new system for pistol permits and FID cards?!?

    • By Samrothman13
      Hello all, new here and would love some advice. I just applied for my FID and permit to purchase a pistol in Montair and I answered yes to question 26 due to seeing a psychiatrist about 10 years ago. The detective I spoke to was nice enough to not turn me away but told me I need a note from a psychiatrist, the issue is that my old psychiatrist is no longer practicing. 
      Does anyone have any suggestions of who I can see or what to do?
       
      Thanks all!

    • I'm sure that many did . . . Just like I'm sure that many did not . . .  You're a businessman and your income is based on your location along with other factors.  It costs you a lot more to move that it does some guy in a two bedroom apartment who isn't expecting to live there for the rest of his life anyway.  If he can keep extra money in his pocket today, he will and he will worry about tomorrow when it comes.
    • even those not working, but making more on unemployment should've kept paying. i coulda played that game at my shop and had a significant amount of extra money in my account. but i didn't want to have back due rent. it's too hard to catch up.  the vast majority of those who are now behind are behind for no other reason than themselves.
    • Ordered mine on a Wednesday, was supposed to arrive Friday. Got stuck somewhere in CT and arrived Saturday. COVID? LOL
    • First . . . I think that California wants to pay off everyone's back rent! After that terrible idea, landlords will likely be able to rework mortgages because the banks do NOT want the properties.  The same goes for homeowners who have fallen behind.  Yes, some MAY bail at high prices but for rentals, it's difficult to find investors because they know they are buying at the top of the market.  For homeowners, they are going to need to live somewhere.  If you sell at the top, you're buying at the top.  Many may move to rentals to wait out the bubble but this will drive rents up. Banks do not want to be in the RE business.  It almost always results in a loss for them.
