I saw that clip of Nappen on YouTube. He also said that a loaded magazine equals a loaded gun as NJSP can say it is part of the firearm. This is contrary to the NJSP website that tells you how to transport firearms; which allows for loaded mags.
NJ firearms law is a disaster, on purpose, to jam up the law abiding population or just discourage them from exercising their rights.
Out of curiosity, why is Nappen dreaded?
Using the Freehold Raceway Mall as a barometer.... two anchor stores are gone. One more on the way out. About 20 percent of the smaller retail stores there are permanently closed. Area food establishments probably have fewer staff. Some have probably closed. I know a small number of people who have more corporate style jobs that lost those jobs when governors shut down businesses. They were not called back to work.
Have we seen to numbers for lost government jobs? I think that number is about..... Zero.
Lever action guns are great. Pick up a nice old Marlin "Thurdy/Thurdy".
They used to be rather inexpensive but in the crazy environement we are in who knows?
My .357 revolver and my 30/30 are two of my favorite guns.
Furthermore, if you are this interested in certain firearms and especially their calibers, since you made another thread on just that. I would expect you would also be interested in the permitting and application process as well. Please start a new thread on your journey applying for your FID, handgun permits, and purchasing process for your first AR-15 since it seems that is what you're most interested in.
Everyone here will be more than happy to help you through the process, but without facts, and follow through, we have nothing to go on.
