    Driving FL to NJ

    I'm from FL and driving up to NJ on Wednesday. I've got my CWFL and my Ruger LCP will be nicely concealed on my hip all the way through FL, GA, SC, NC, VA and MD to help protect me from BG's. But in DC, DE, and NJ I'd be the BG if she wasn't locked up and unloaded in my trunk! That kinda sucks!

    Actually if you have a Florida permit, your covered in DE. You are NOT covered in Maryland though. Maryland, like NJ and DC do not honor any states permits.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    What are you going to do with your firearm when you get to NJ? As I understand it the federal law only protects you if you are traveling through NJ. I was under the impression that if NJ is your final destination and you stay there, you can be arrested for having an unregistered firearm.

    Archer51 and Beni are both correct.

    Maryland does not honor your Florida permit (or another state permit).
    You can't take a firearm into NJ if that is your final destination. Be aware that they also ban hollowpoint rounds.

    Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

    So sorry you have to go to NJ. Stay in Fl or better yet, stay in SC, where people know what to do to defend themselves.

    Thanks for the info! I confused MD and DE in my original post.

    NJ is a different story. Although I know that hollow points are a big no no there, I wasn't aware that possession without a "purchasers permit" is a crime! That REALLY sucks!!!

    ...but deny others the right to do so.

    I have a bone to pick with SC's gun laws. I grew up there, but my Georgia Weapons Carry License is not recognized there.

    Here is what the NRA says about New Jersey.
    New Jersey has highly restrictive firearms laws. The New Jersey Supreme Court has ruled that anyone traveling within the state is deemed to be aware of these regulations and will be held strictly accountable for violations. (End NRA Statement

    No hollow points in Jersey as well as no "hi-cap" mags. Ammo and weapon must be seperated and in different lock boxes. One reason I don't go back to Jersey very often (if ever) I call it the Socialist State.

    IF you are not going to the range, hunting, gunshop, etc DO NOT HAVE A GUN IN THE CAR while you are in NJ. Its best of that you leave the gun home, there was just a big legal battle here over a guy they put in jail who legally owned both firearms in his truck and was still put in jail. He was finally let out but it took and while and its still on his record.

    Best advice leave the gun home.

    Hey redbeard: Absolutely understand some of this ridiculous reciprocity garbage. If I am not mistaken, it goes both ways--I believe my SC CCWP is not worth much in Peaches. In any event both states are NOT NJ and THAT IS GOOD.
