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.

      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!!

      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.

    • For the way it burst, it's not a real squib. It would have to be an underloaded cartridge that stopped basically right at the muzzle. This is unlikley but possible.  My guess is the following:  There's probably something wrong with the metal of the barrel. They got a bad batch of stainless with impurities or weird crystal structures or something. Much like SA did when they had the spate of stainless slides snapping off at the slide cut on their 1911s.  It is also not uncommon for the machining for a lever action with a tube magazine to negatively impact the boar as far as accuracy on a good sample, and this is often due to the machining changing the bore diameter or roundness.  Combine that with bum steel and the fact the angle on the dovetail is a stress riser, and one of two things happened.  1) It was a bad enough combination that it the bullets hammering into the bore constriction were able to basically split the end of the barrel open.  2) Lots of soft lead ammo was being shot, and the  bore restriction at the cut was effectively scraping off some lead and causing a build up until #1 happened.  #2 could in theory happen badly enough to kill a gun without bad steel being involved, but usually you stop shooting first and try to figure out why your gun is do horribly inaccurate.

    • What article are you reading? At no point does he argue 300 million gun owners. He points out there are about 250 million adults in the us and the at least number for how many guns per capita are in circulation.  The biggest number he poses as actual resistance is the veteran population at about 20 million.  I'd argue that the scenario is very wrong as a whole, but more on that at the end.   The estimates are that the number of gun owners in the US are 100 million. The number that owns them is smaller than that.  The only ownership stat he gins up is that to get all the semi-autos, you would have to raid 9 million households. This is based on his estimate of number of semi-auto guns out there (which is probably conservative for the reason he states), and his math of netting 3 prohibited guns per raid. Which Is a number that may be high or low. I really can't say. LOTS of people tend to own way more than one semi auto rifle. On the other hand, how good would the data mining be to target things successfully? My guess is that the number of raids would have to be much higher because you would have WAY less than 100% accuracy on semi auto ownership.    This is where I think a whole bunch of people stop thinking rationally, and the author's nod to the IRA is apt, and it becomes important to keep in mind that the number of raids is seriously, seriously optimistic.  His math is a bit off. Doing some rounding to whole numbers, it's really 869 raids per team, and thus 869 raids per officer to hit that optimistic number. Assuming no attrition, casualties, etc.  There's ~100 million gun owners.  The question is how many of them do you get?  There's also another ~200 million non gun owners. the question is what will they put up with before they see the government as a problem?  Because the reality is you are likely going to have to kick down WAY more than 9 million doors to get them all. Even at 9 million, that's basically one in every 13 homes.  And that is if they ONLY ban semi auto rifles and things work out beyond optimistically. Realistically, even with high quality data mining, face to face sales, 80% receivers, etc will mean going to a number of households larger than that, AND so far the stupidity seems to want to include semi auto pistols. So... WAY. WAYYYYY more households than that.  But lets be kind and say double it.  That means kicking in the door of about 1 in 5 households. That will generate opinions amongst the populace.  And he already suggested how it would be organized. It'll be the guys you know and trust. You ahve a handful of buddies you have known forever? One of them jsut got capped by a SWAT team last weekend and you are getting together after the funeral for a drink and really pissed off? Maybe you get to talking about how some fuckers need to pay?  How many more people when they hear rumors of things that sound like they might be talking about you will give you a ring to let you know something might be happening but without putting any real skin in the game?  This is how it happens at the very least. More organized than that? Look at how many gangs we have in the US. They have their own governing documents and rules and such. They are arguably competing forms of government in some locations.  As a concept, the havock the IRA caused was with WAY less guns and with a peak of at best about 5000 active trouble makers. A lot more sympathetic ears and people willing to be low commitment on the fringe, but 5000 really problematic ones.    I do think he is optimistic about the retribution on the ruling class. I suspect it would look much more like enough cops get killed that the cops collect their pay checks while knowing the cops just don't go into that part of town for anything real.      I don't totally disagree with you. I have said before and I will say again that all politicians are scum. they don't care about anything but gathering power and influence and not wanting to work to retain it.  If a ban ever did come about, there would be NO intention of enforcing it thoroughly. Just like there has been zero attempt made to really enforce ANY gun control law to date thoroughly outside of already regulated entities.  Whenever something happens, nothing effective is suggested to prevent crime. What is suggested is  something that would make it harder to mint new gun owners and to stifle the existing social structures of gun owners.  Why? Because to the mind of a politician they see it as destroying a voting block that opposes them FOREVER. They will likely remain opposed, but opposed and unorganized and to diffuse into other voting blocks. They don't do anything about the crime because crime creates fear, and fear can be used to gather votes. Enforcement will be arbitrary and periodic so they can keep the former gon owning voting block afraid to stand up on the subject, and keep the anti-gun voting block intact and in fear of the evil criminal gun owners. Because if you actually solved the "problem" of gun owners, the anti-gunners could vote for whoever now. If you actually fixed the criminal problem, your voters who want law and order out of fear could go vote based on other priorities.  The only real point of conversations like this are to point out how people are being lied to, and how those who give a crap need to focus on the other strategies and put some effort into them.  IMO the real hazard for CW2.0 surrounding guns is that we DO get a half assed ban, and some politician thinks because they said it is so, it is truly so. And decides to do something else incredibly stupid that lets them find out how many guns they didn't actually confiscate. 
    • Remember, it only takes 3% to produce "change".. What could 3,000,000 "focused" individuals accomplish in the country? Averaged out, that would be 60,000 per state. Could 60,000 pissed off gun owners take over control of NJ? How about half that number?
