When you have the assault charge it kind of makes a at home hollowpoint exemption go away. Don't use a firearm loaded with hollowpoints to assault someone amd you have nothing to worry about.

If he had it legally it wouldn't matter. He assaulted people with it.

 

pistol version isn't legal in NJ.  Carbine version takes some extreme neutering to be made legit.  Seeing as he has standard capacity mags, I doubt it was made compliant.

The other occupants knew the firearm was loaded with hollow point bullets from allegedly being threatened with it? I'm usually skeptical, but this sounds like they got in a fight over something and one of the "victims" called in that he threatened them with a gun, possibly not realizing that this young man's life is now ruined.. or he's a total whack job. I'm guessing it was the carbine version. Can the stock be removed?

I can't agree with you on this. Sounds like he got into an argument and fight with a gun around. He must have said something at some time about having hollowpoints and the gun.

 

Why have a gun you can't take anywhere because it's illegal in the state?Even if you used it to legally defend yourself you're screwed. Not defending the "Assault Weapon" laws but it seems he set himself up to be screwed.

 

If he were so innocent, why the standoff with police?

 

I don't see how the victims "ruined his life". I think he did that himself.

 

PK90 is correct. Possession of Hollowpoints is not an add on charge. You can be charged for that single 22 hollowpoint rolling around in your trunk. However that doesn't usually happen.

Are there any other states that have crap laws about hollow points? Never heard of this outside of NJ.

    • I've said it before and I'll say it again. NJ Stautes, for the law abiding gun owner, only cover where you can possess hollowpoints.  They say nothing about where you can use them.    
    • I have a Springfield 1903 that I inherited long ago.  It was my grandfather's, my father's and finally mine but I know little about it! I also have the original bayonet that it came with.  It's made by Springfield and the serial # is 249839.  I have been told it's unsafe to shoot at that #. I have found that this 1903 was actually made in 1903 and has a casehardened receiver. I know that myself and my descendants have never fired it. The rifling looks brand new for a 119 year old rifle! I know nothing about it's value, how to judge it's condition, etc.  I put a few quick pics below and would appreciate any guidance you could give me.  
    • That paragraph describes the method of securing a firearm when being transported under a number of clauses in that section. You have to read the whole thing. It begins with: So look back to see what 2C:39-5 says about handguns and rifles/shotguns: Note the 2 underlined parts. If you have a permit to carry a handgun, possession of a handgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. However, almost nobody ever gets a permit to carry a handgun so almost all of us have to work under the exemptions for handguns. If you have an FPIC, possession of a rifle or shotgun is not a crime. Therefore, you cannot be exempted, because there is no offence to be exempted from. Notice that there is no mention of a loaded handgun, therefore all handguns are treated the same, loaded or not which is how carry permit holders can carry loaded handguns - it is not until you are forced to transport under the exemptions that being unloaded is required for handguns. However, possession of loaded rifles or shotguns is specifically called out as an offence. The thing you may realize from this is that if you have an FPIC, you do not have to adhere to 2C:39-6.g and can have the unloaded rifle or shotgun uncased. That is not to say you wouldn't potentially get jammed up under another charge, such as causing a public alarm or disturbance if you were walking down Main St with it on a sling, but you're not committing a firearms offence per se. Now go back and read what HE and I have said before - do not take my word for any of this. I am not a lawyer and this advice is worth no more than what you paid me for it. Read the whole of 2C:39 and 2C:58 and the relevant parts of the Admin Code, and then decide for yourself whether you believe me or need to ask someone who is actually qualified to explain this.
    • The statutes for transporting firearms do not specify handguns, but seem to apply to all firearms?   2C:39-6 g.   Any weapon being transported under paragraph (2) of subsection b., subsection e., or paragraph (1) or (3) of subsection f. of this section shall be carried unloaded and contained in a closed and fastened case, gunbox, securely tied package, or locked in the trunk of the automobile in which it is being transported, and in the course of travel shall include only deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances.
    • Passed my online exam, but no field sessions available yet. And can I bring a 12-gauge shotgun only, or do I have to use a muzzleloader too?   When do they resume?
