FID Permit Advide Needed

Recommended Posts

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!

In either case, have you asked the detectives?  I do however believe if anything, it would show up under the mental health records check. 

Maxim, sorry I might not have provided enough detail in my post. Because I answered yes to question 26 the detective told me I need to get a letter from a psychiatrist that provides answers to 10 or so questions, a few of which state I am of sound mind to possess a firearm and things of that effect. Since my previous psychiatrist is no longer practicing I am not sure how to handle. Basically I am looking for anyone else that has had a similar experience.

You are basically screwed. It will be real tough to find a new doc that is willing to do an evaluation and sign off on it. I think years ago there was a similar post here where the guy ended up having to go to some place that evaluates police but I don’t remember the details. Try and search for it  Good luck.

Yeah I figured butn I also feel like someone has to know a decent psychiatrist that they used that signed off. I'm not saying I want them to sign off after the first time meeting them, but really moreso someone that is reasonablely supportive of the 2A.

I agree with those who have said you're basically fucked.

The Second Amendment is not a right here in the Glorious Peoples Republik of New Jerseystan, but a privilege granted by the state (and especially by your local Chief LEO) by way of exemption from the draconian and fascist laws laid out in 2C:39 and 2C:58 of the statutes.

Interestingly enough the detective I met with said that if I can get a letter and I pass the background check (which I know I will) I will be good to go, so we shall see.

Take heart. I don't have a copy of the ANJRPC newsletter handy (they get read and thrown out - I'm a hoarder but my SO is not), but I recall always seeing ads for psychiatrists that specialize in exactly what you are looking for. You may want to join the ANJRPC (they are the state affiliate of the NRA). Maybe somebody here on the forum has a copy of a newsletter and can help you out.

Adios,

Pizza Bob

Could not find my specific old post I was looking for but did find another one(below) I had posted a few years ago on the topic of Q#26.  Your primary inquiry has been addressed above, but sharing this for further reference.

I assume your application is on hold pending you getting the required letter from a psychologist.  If so, once you obtain and provide the letter, hopefully things will progress smoothly.  HOWEVER if despite that, you are still presented with complications/reluctance from your local PD, then I would recommend you consult with a firearms attorney(refer to the ANJRPC website or newsletter for recommended attorneys).

The bottomline is once you start this process, you need to see it through it's successful conclusion(ie the issuance of your FID/P2Ps) no mattter what.   You don't want to be officially Denied and allow that to stand.

regards and good luck

PM me if I can be of further assistance.  Note that I am not a lawyer, although I did stay in a Holiday Inn last year.

p.s. Lastly, you are not "screwed".  You just need to persevere no matter what it takes.  In the end, it is worth it. 

 

"A few other considerations related to Q#26 in general:

- it is a felony to falsify your responses. So you must answer truthfully and be confident you can defend your answers should they ever be questioned in the future. (I.e. if you get caught lying, you are screwed.)

- once you answer “Yes”, you must always answer “Yes” in order to be consistent with your prior submissions. In my case, I have answered”Yes” on two subsequent P2P applictions and included a letter stating  that I answered Yes in order to be consistent with my earlier applications. In that letter, I also affirmed(truthfully) that there has been no further treatment bla bla bla.  These last two applications were routinely  processed and approved without any issues."

Awesome, thanks for the insight. Honestly that's why I answered yes, so as to not lie. I considered getting my record expunged but being that my psychiatrist doesn't practice anymore I figured it would be futile. I have called him a few times and he never returns my calls even though we had a good relationship.

I had to answer yes to #26 when I applied also, as I had seen a psychiatrist a couple times in grade school and early high school for ADHD. Detectives said it could be any psychiatrist who writes the letter, but they prefer the original one the applicant went to. I lucked out and my original guy was still working (which still seems like a miracle to me, cuz he seemed to be in his 80's when I was around 12, and at the time of applying it must've been almost 10-15 years later), and agreed to see me for a meeting and would write the letter for me. Hopefully things work out for you. Don't give up cuz of a bump or two in the process, that's what NJ wants you to do.

      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?!?

      Hello
      Recently moved back to NJ.. Clifton to be Exact. I received a FID card a long time ago from Oakland but have misplaced in my moves. Is every towns protocol for FID cards different? Clifton has me calling a detective to schedule an appointment to hand in my application for FID. Seems odd that I can’t just drop it off at the station. Problem is the detective has yet to answer my calls or return the messages I leave him. Needless to say but it’s frustrating not being able to get my application submitted because I’ve heard it can take months for them to complete  
      Has anybody here had a similar experience? Any tips to getting in getting the ball rolling? 
      Thanks! Hope this is in the right place.

      So I'm currently a NJ resident and have a FID. However, there's a decent possibility that I may move out of state (prob NYS, but I'd want to keep my firearms in NJ) in the near future. I'd like to know if I can somehow get a nonresident FID now before Murphy implements many more hurdles to getting FIDs in general (like mandatory training, etc.)
      Is there any way to do this? Or can I "convert" my resident FID to nonresident at some point in the future (and perhaps be grandfathered in should the law change)?

      Hey guys,
       
      My name is Frankie. I am new to firearms all around and I am excited to start my journey into the world of firearms. I am from Monmouth county and I am currently waiting on my FID and Permit so i can purchase my first handgun, the Glock 19. Here is my experience so far with the application process with the Middletown PD:
       
      5/13- Filled out FID and Permit application
       
      5/21- Got fingerprints done
       
      5/23- References received and sent back letter to my PD
       
      5/24- Went into PD and followed up with copy of my finger prints receipt becauseI wasn't sure if I had to bring that back. The women at the desk told me I did not have to however she took my papers and made a copy for their records.
       
      6/7- Called the records department in Middletown PD and kindly asked for an update on my application. The women was very nice and more than happy to check my status. She told me that they had recieved all my paper work a couple days ago and that they are processing them at the moment. I am hopeful that they will be done soon. A couple of my buddies have told me that my PD is fairly quick so my fingers are crossed!!
