Is it Legal in NJ for Gun Range/Store Employees to Open Carry?

Recommended Posts

Sorry for that.....in the world of Const. MT = Empty.


What does on duty at the store mean...........a Police Presents....or just armed sales help ?



Go back and look at his signature. If you can use abbreviations like "MT," he can use "RSO."  :)

Today I made my trip to 3 different shops. Here is what I found at each shop.

Shop #1 owner carrying gun loaded. 1 employee, not carrying.

Shop #2 owner not there, 2 employees not carrying.

Shop #3 owner not there, 1 employee carrying loaded, Retired Leo. 2 Employees carrying unloaded revolvers. Each had 1 rd quickly available.


These were my findings today. 

Don't know if it helps with the OP but just thought I would throw it out there.

I can't find anything in the statutes under the exemptions that would allow a retail licensed gun store employee to carry a loaded firearm. Actually I can't find anything that would allow them to handle any firearm other than transporting them under 2c36-6 subsection g conditions (unloaded in a fastened box, etc). Same goes for a customers fondling retail guns.


This is the same twilight zone are of law like letting your friend hold your gun at your home makes both of you felons. While technically illegal, it goes against the spirit of the law to go after. It seems unofficially the govt overlords consider gun shops as gun ranges even if a physical range doesn't exist.


Just file it under the selective enforcement section. Just like the AWB is still on the books in full force yet is just not prosecuted provided people play the evil feature game.

      Here's my perspective on US (the 2A community) vs. THEM (the gun control types):
      US: We're fiercely independent. And so, we squabble. We argue about the 2A. We argue about the 1A. We argue about whose guns (ammo, holster, etc.) are better. We complain about the various 2A orgs. We complain they don't file enough lawsuits. When they file, we complain it's too slow, too little, too late. We refuse to give enough money to fund the lawsuits that we say we want. We don't pony up with enough volunteer hours. We get snarky when they ask for our time or money. We're impatient for results. We insult and tick off the people doing the heavy lifting. We're playing a short game. 
      THEM: They work together. They demonstrate a lemming-like level of cooperation. They put "mission first", all else second. They shut down or expel doubters. They happily peddle in false studies and misinformation if it moves them towards the goalpost. They keep a "big picture" view. They are relentless. They recruit the young aggressively. They exploit crime victims shamelessly. They band together even when it's not their fight. They're playing a long game.
      Case in point... with the MESS that our state is in financially and every other way, our governor took the time to direct his attorney general to file a "friend of the court" brief re: that carry case in Hawaii. Just think about that for a minute, pls! Our state is going broke, we have a state pension system that is unsustainable, the highest taxes in the nation, the most congestion, a crumbling, inadequate infrastructure... and yet, the long arm of OUR attorney general (paid for by OUR tax dollars) is being used to manipulate a case happening in a state nearly 5,000 miles away. As a taxpayer, if that doesn't tick you off... then I have no words. Don't kid yourself, THIS is why they're making progress!

      This is the speech I gave at the
      2nd Amendment Awareness Rally & Open Carry March! .223 2014! My message that the constitution has failed went over better than I thought it would. It says a lot about this crowd that we can have differences of opinion and still respect each other.   http://theinternationallibertarian.blogspot.com/2014/02/the-broken-constitution-video.html

    • As I mentioned in another thread, we bought a condo in Florida a couple of years ago, and have started spending some time down here.  We have not become residents yet, but still are able to enjoy a taste of life in a free state with Covid sanity and everyday concealed carry. Yesterday I purchased the Zastava Arms ZPAP M70 for which I have been lusting.  Bought it online from Atlantic Firearms and had it shipped to a local dealer.  When I went over to pick it up, he asked me for my DL and Florida CCW permit (if I had one).  I filled out a 4473 and a few minutes later, he said, "You're all set."  Holy crap!  No waiting days for an "instant" background check requiring a return trip to the dealer.  In just minutes I was able to walk out with my new beauty.  While I was there, a fellow walked in and asked to look at a handgun.  He checked it out for a few minutes, then said, "OK, I'll take it."  Same deal for him:  DL, Florida CCW, 4473, and out the door in a few minutes with the gun.  I should note that with the ready availability of guns in Florida, contrary to the hysterical fears of legislators in states like New Jersey, not only do legal gun owners not run around shooting each other, one rarely (like, never) even sees a gun. All that aside, the weather here has been great, the people warm and welcoming.  On days when it's a little cooler, with temperatures in the mid-60's, when we can't sit by the pool or go to the beach, the weather is perfect for golf, pickle ball, running and working out, or just hanging out.  Unfortunately, we have to leave "The Matrix" next week to return to Jersey for six weeks in the middle of winter, for some weddings and other family events.  But we get to look forward to returning in mid-March for another 6-8 weeks.  If any of you are down this way, be sure to say hi!
