MANAHAWKIN - The New Jersey Second Amendment Society www.nj2as.com (NJ2AS) is pleased

In most cases, the town and/or chief of police were cooperative and agreed with

Operation Establish Compliance (OEC) is an ongoing project of the New Jersey Second
Amendment Society which seeks to notify municipal police departments who are in violation
of NJ state law with regard to firearms permitting and help them correct their procedures.
Since 2011, twenty towns have agreed to comply with NJ state law thanks to OEC.
NJ State Law says:
2C:58-3f. ... There shall be no conditions or requirements added to the form of
content of the application, or required by the licensing authority for the issuance
of a permit or identification card, other than those that are specifically set forth in
There are municipal police departments that violate this statute as a matter of policy. NJ2AS
has seen some of these additional forms, many of which have nothing to do with firearms. If
you are a NJ resident who is applying for your firearms identification card or permit to purchase
a hand gun, the only forms required by the NJ State law are the
SP-66 "Consent For Mental Health Records Search", and
S.T.S 033 "Application for Firearms Purchaser Identification Card and/or Handgun Purchase Permit".
If your town requires extra paperwork, please visit the Operation Establish Compliance link on the
NJ2AS web site (www.nj2as.com
) for information regarding what you can do to help correct this problem.
