AOWs in NJ?

Recommended Posts

Everywhere you look, there are threads about AOWs being legal in NJ. Is this true? I always thought that they were legal, but the old relics at the NJSP FIU said that that was not true. They made me get rid of a few back in 2005 that I legally acquired with ATF NFA approval. They considered the Mossberg 590 12GA with a 14" barrel, a sawed-off shotgun or a destructive device. :facepalm:

Anyhow, now that there are gun friendly employees at the NJSP FIU, ie the recent non-NFA approvals, do you think AOWs would be allowed? Nothing I can find disallows their possession within NJ.

Thank You for this Information I put in the ordered for 4 card in case I screw any up but I was under the impression the prints had to be done  by an LE agency and Stamped by said agency . Like What I had to go through to renew my Florida Non Resident Carry. Anyway I will efile when I get the Fingerprint cards in Hand.  Thanks again and any more insight  to this process would be greatly appreciated

VFG is not a problem I have several Others They have to have the VFG but I don't think you need one for an AOW but I'll worry about that if I get Approval

AOWs require a VFG otherwise it'd be considered a pistol.

Do they still take 8 months the walk through  videos I've seen on YouTube claim if you efile the wait is about 5-6 weeks.  I got my fingerprint cards just need to get the inkpad I got 4 cards in case I screw up once I get the ink pad I will eFile. Can I get the specs on your AOL in the Pic

e-Form1 is now a few weeks yes.  Much faster.  That's not my AOW there - check the link and see if you can get the specs - there's others on r/NJGuns who have done it and posted specs.

Do you have a AOW if so have you been questioned about it at the range asking you because you were one off the few that has actually replied to me I appreciate all info you and a few others have given me. Thanks Keith

No, I don't have an AOW.  It really depends on the range you go to if you get questioned or not.  I tend to go to mostly private ranges and get no questions about my Non-NFA Other firearms.

Ok I submitted my efile Form 1 application and $200 for an AOW at 10pm last night 4/21/22 within 5 min I received my email with my fingerprint cover letter, my  CLEO forms and a copy of my Form 1 application. Today I mailed my Fingerprint cards to the ATF and mailed the CLEO the wait begins.  Keith

Good luck - hope to see some updates here about success.

    • Good evening, Can someone who has received a carry permit please give the dimensions of the card? Thanks
    • Appropriately, the keel of the USS Arizona (SSN-803) was laid today. 
    • Adding to the points @Scorpio64 made above…I’ve always thought of the use of deadly force in self defense the way the Navy taught us, and beat into our heads…the mantra was: “Deadly force is the force that a person uses, which he/she knows, or SHOULD know, creates a substantial risk of causing death or serious bodily harm.  Its use is justified only under conditions of extreme necessity, as a last resort, when all lesser means have failed or cannot reasonably be employed.” They also maintained that the level of force you use must be reasonably proportional to the force being used against you. In other words, you can’t shoot a person who throws a rock at you and calls you an asshole.  If someone is attempting to drag you into a van and haul you off, or is waving a firearm at you, it’s reasonable to assume they are intent on causing you death or serious bodily harm…and the use of deadly force against them is appropriate.    It’s a complex set of decisions for YOU to make, in a very short amount of time, in what will probably be an extremely stressful situation.  You WILL be dragged in front of a grand jury at minimum if you make the decision to employ deadly force.  At worst, you’ll be on trial for homicide of some flavor.    I think everyone should make themselves intimately familiar with the justified use of deadly force in their state, as they differ slightly. Some states require you to retreat until you are unable to retreat any more (and I’m not completely sure WHAT that means!). Some states, like Texas and Florida, have stand your ground laws. This doesn’t mean you can Willy-Nilly shoot someone who assaults you, it just means you don’t have the duty to retreat, but you have to meet the force with an appropriate counter force.    It’s not an easy equation, and a lot of responsibility. One way or another, your life will be drastically affected by the decision. I personally hope I never have to make that decision. 
    • I may agree with you but in NJ the criminal has the upper hand. If you decide to use your pistol for self defense, a liberal prosecutor could still indict you. Then it goes to trail and the jury will decide whether your action was reasonable or not. If you watch old Westerns the outlaw must draw first or its murder. Pretty much the way it is here in NJ. 
    • Yes, by all means, wait until an assailant pulls their gun and shoots you.  I think three bullets is the safe legal threshold.  Then you can draw.  You have to wait for the third shot because you have to be 100% certain that the person killing you really means it.  Their first two shots could have been warning shots and the attacker missed the air and unintentionally hit you. When someone attacks you, they are a threat of an unknown quantity.  They could kill you with one punch, a crow bar, a knife, a gun.  Who knows?  Unless you have X-ray vision and are ALSO a mind reader you have no idea, ZERO, what level of threat you are facing.  I can tell ya one thing.  If you wait around to find out how far your attacker is willing to go, you are probably going to be dead soon anyway, so it doesn't matter much. What about rape?  I mean, a rapist isn't necessarily going to kill their victim.  Should deadly force be used as a defense against rape?  I don't believe I've ever seen a news piece about a woman charged with murder shooting an unarmed rapist.  How the fuck are those skanks getting away with that (satire mode off) Guns are used to neutralize threats.  If someone is carrying with visions of OK Coral in their minds, they probably shouldn't be carrying.  As far as I am concerned, if someone is behaving threateningly towards me, I back off.  I tell them to back off.  If that does not work, peppa spray deployed and sprayed...  that is, if the threat is standing down wind.  If the wind is blowing in your face, you are going to have a real shitty night getting caught up in your own defensive attack.  If you are packing, I do not see a problem with drawing and holding low ready.  Some may say that's brandishing, but it's not.  Brandishing is more like pulling your shirt up to intimidate someone or waving the gun around in a manner meant to threaten. At low ready, you are consciously pointing in a safe direction that the attacker can see.  This opens a crossroads.  Your next move will be based on the attackers next move.  Whether or not the gun goes back in the holster cold is entirely up to your attacker. If your attacker pulls a gun and you have a faster draw, you could possibly neutralized the threat.  If you are slow to react, you could become worm food.  If the attacker sees you at low ready, pisses their pants and runs, you have neutralized the threat.  I prefer the not shooting the attacker option.  I would totally shoot someone if I absolutely had no other option, but I don't think I could feel good about it. Anyway.  To quote Red Haired Shanks.  Guns are not for threats, guns are for action.
