A Permit to Purchase a Firearm in NJ
There are two types of firearm purchase permits in NJ, each of which applies to a specific classification of weapons. New Jersey law regarding the purchase of firearms is outlined in section N.J.S.A. 2C:58-3 of the New Jersey Administrative Code. According to this statute, you must obtain a “New Jersey Permit to Purchase a Handgun,” in order to legally purchase a handgun in New Jersey. Further, if you intend to purchase a rifle or shotgun, you must obtain a “New Jersey Firearms Purchaser Identification Card.”
In order to obtain a New Jersey Permit to Purchase a Handgun or a New Jersey Firearms Purchaser Identification Card, you must follow complete the following steps. First, you must submit an application to the Chief of Police at your local police department or to the Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. The application form is the same for both types of purchase permits and will require you to provide a host of personal information, including your current residence, place of employment, and use of alcohol or controlled dangerous substances. The permit process will also include a complete background check with the New Jersey State Police and FBI, mental health records search, investigation by the local police, fingerprinting, and two references.
If you have attempted to obtain a purchasers permit or firearms ID card in New Jersey and you have been rejected for any reason, we can help. Contact the NJ gun permit lawyers at the Tormey Law Firm LLC now for a free initial consultation at 201-556-1570.
A Permit to Carry a Firearm in NJ
The other form of firearms permit in New Jersey is a permit to carry a handgun. New Jersey’s requirements associated with carry permits are incredibly stringent. Similar to firearms purchasing permits, those seeking carry permits must submit their applications to the Chief of Police at their local police department or to the Superintendent of the New Jersey State Police. The applicant must fulfill a number of criteria, one of which requires them to provide the State with three endorsements from “reputable persons” who have known the applicant for at least three years and can attest to their character.
In addition, a carry permit applicant must demonstrate that he or she:
- Is not subject to any of the disabilities set forth under N.J.S.A. 2C:58-3c (which governs the purchase of firearms);
- Is thoroughly familiar with the safe handling and use of handguns; and
- Has a justifiable need to carry a handgun.
If you obtain a permit to carry a handgun in New Jersey, it will expire two years from the date of issuance. You may apply to renew your carry permit after the two-year period and will be subject to the same application process.
