OC in Jersey ?
so i did a search and didnt find anything. i was wondering if anyone could give me a quick run down of carrying in NJ.
I am 19 and live in PA, but my family has a cabin in north jersey that i might be buying for a weekend place. i know in PA you have to OC till your 21 then get your ccw permit. how does it go in jersey ? i will have my shotgun for while im in the house, but what about a pistol for carrying?
its in vernon, NJ. its not a city, just a small trailer park in the woods. im sure i could carry and no one say a word, i just want to know where the law says i stand.
Thanks a lot
Do not Carry a Pistol or any gun into New Jersey unless you want to become a Convicted Felon.
You must have a permit to even own a pistol or any gun in New Jersey, simply bringing your gun into New Jersey is a felony.
ugh... that sucks. looks like im going in unarmed. never thought i would say this, but i kinda like Pa now :P
ill have to stop in the local police station once we start going up there and ask about the permits and stuff.
Yes, NJ and NYC aren't exactly the shining beacons of 2AD freedom; and unfortunately the majority of their denizens aren't exactly fighting to regain that freedom.
God bless the few that are......
Good luck in NJ. Not sure if this is true but two points that I've read concerning NJ:
NY LEOs that live in Jersey can't even carry on their way home. :nono:
Also no JHP ammo either! :banned:
Want some more good info to read?
A trip planner:
Leo are covered under HR218 aka LEOSA . Leo can carry in all 50 states.

Not sure if NJ even issues a non resident permit. If they don't trust their own slaves...I mean subjects....I mean citizens enough to have one, why would they trust someone from out of their own little kingdom?

Oh...that was a good laugh...really, thanks for that. Wooo! I have not laughed that hard in a long time.
oh, wait.....you were serious? :blink:

Of course I'm due for some new infractions as 2009 is here! :hand5:
Open Carry in N.J.?
well, I OC in NJ, but I work as a LEO in NJ so that doesnt really count. For non-LEO'S, I agree that it's not likely that a civilian could OC in NJ. Off-duty, I carry concealed.
I moved out of that state (my birth state) many many years ago and have NEVER regretted it!!:wave:

I left Jersey 22 years ago and never looked back!
I wouldn't care if I was offered $1,000,000.00 I'd still never go back.
