Hows the laws in purchasing a hand gun and or shotgun in NJ now days. I purchased firearms years , back and was wondering hows the laws now days. I also had non resident ccw permits for couple states just to have . was hoping one day NJ would grant resedents CCW. but when my permits times to renew I choose not to sincce at that timew NJ still done nothing for its, residents, we live in a violent state. Newark city ilegal gun crimes happen all time and many other places, NJ residents should have the right to CCW carry conceal firarm , so can go about there life without the fear of being car jacked or some wild criminal decides to tr and rob you with a weapon, at least you can have a choice to stop him and if nessary take his life , vs he takes your and you cant even do anything about it like present, criminal dont obey laws , thats why violent criminals. residents go by the law and there walking vitums , just matter time. even peper spary is strictly regulated . are they kidding me the law makers? So bring me up to speed on the present NJ gun laws. also my cousin has a misdemenior disorderly person, can he still get permit to buy firearm? Will NJ do you think will soon pass CCW for residents? I read where people move from NJ to PA so they carry CCW and feel safe.
