Hi folks,
Please forgive me if I'm being redundent but I need to ask for help in regards to this issue. How does one go about securing a concealed carry permit? I'm not a Law Enforcement Officer, nor a Security Guard, or a Body Guard. I feel the laws are unjust in NJ regarding the carry permits. Is there a way to obtain a Carry Permit without falling into one of the usual Job Functions? Thanks for any help in this matter. I feel I should be able to defend myself and my family even if it isn't within my home. The Bad Guys are carrying to the Max here in my County!

I got the impression that just about the only people to get a CCW in NJ were "financial friends" of the local judges/politicians.

Sad to say to best of my knowledge you are up a certain creek with no paddle on this issue tho heaven only knows, you and folks in MD, IL etc are being severely penalized in the most unconstitutional manner :frown:

NJ residents are S.O.L. regarding carry. Besides, hollow-point ammo is illegal big-time, so if you were to carry, it would have to be ball ammo. I'm quite happy to have left NJ...

Thats another crazy NJ law, it is legal to own hollow-point, it is even legal to target shoot using hollow-point, it is just illegal to shoot someone with hollow-point.

I am Sooooo glad I moved out of NJ.

Actually, I believe you can't even possess one round. I should look it up.

Lots of info on this page:

http://www.state.nj.us/njsp/about/fire_hollow.html

Basically it comes down to:

N.J.S.A 2C:39-3f(1) limits the possession of hollow nose ammunition. However, there is a general exception that allows for the purchase of this ammunition but restricts the possession of it to specified locations. This exception provides that:

(2) Nothing is sub section f (1) shall be construed to prevent a person from keeping such ammunition at his dwelling, premises or other land owned or possessed by him, or from carrying such ammunition from the place of purchase to said dwelling or land . . . [N.J.S.A 26:39-3g (2)].

Thus a person may purchase this ammunition and keep it within the confines of his property. Sub section f (1) further exempts from the prohibited possession of hollow nose ammunition "persons engaged in activities pursuant to N.J.S.A 2C:39-6f. . . ."
N.J.S.A 26:39-3f. (1).

Activities contained in N.J.S.A 26:39-6f. can be broken down as follows:

1.A member of a rifle or pistol club organized under rules of the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and which filed its charter with the State Police;
2.A person engaged in hunting or target practice with a firearm legal for hunting in this State;
3.A person going directly to a target range, and;
4.A person going directly to an authorized place for "practice, match, target, trap or skeet shooting exhibitions."
Which is why the guy arrested at Newark airport got into trouble even though he should be covered by interstate transportation laws.
