Recommended Posts

So will NJ become a shall issue state?


Citizens' Protection Act




     Revises procedures for securing a permit to carry a handgun.




This bill, the "Citizens' Protection Act," revises and simplifies the procedures for securing a permit to carry a handgun in the State of New Jersey.

     Under the provisions of the bill, an applicant for a permit to carry a handgun would be entitled to that permit so long as he can demonstrate competence with a firearm and is not statutorily disqualified.  To demonstrate that competence, the applicant would be required to include, as part of his application for the permit, a copy indicating his successful completion of  a firearms safety or training course or class offered by a law enforcement agency, an educational institution, the military, or the National Rifle Association.  An applicant who holds  a permit to carry is deemed competent and need not submit such evidence.
