Filing a Firearms Permit Appeal in New Jersey
If your gun permit application was denied, you are entitled to request a hearing in the Superior Court in the county in which you filed the application. This request must be made in writing within 30 days of the initial denial and must be served upon the County Prosecutor in the county in which the hearing will occur, the Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police, and the Chief of Police in the municipality in which you reside.
The Court must then set a date for the appeal hearing, which must be held within 60 days of the receipt of your request. The state notes whether the applicant is retired law enforcement because the appeal decision timing changes for retired law enforcement officers. The court has 60 days to hear the appeal, except for retired law enforcement applications for carry permits, which is a 30-day turnaround Before the hearing, you will receive a discovery packet containing your initial application and associated documentation, including criminal background checks, mental health records, responses from the references you provided, and notes from investigating officers. This discovery packet may be provided by the Prosecutor’s Office, the local police department, or the township attorney.
An appeal hearing is a complex legal proceeding, requiring evidence, testimony, and a compelling argument in your favor. Due to the intricacies of this process and the long-term implications, it is highly advisable to enlist an attorney who has experience with gun permit appeals. Your attorney should utilize the discovery packet, as well as any other relevant information, to support your case. Our New Jersey gun lawyers have achieved great success representing clients across New Jersey at these hearings. We employ all of the knowledge, experience, and resources at our disposal to obtain superior outcomes.
