2. The purpose of this would be to keep a handgun at work (for safety reasons of course). I will be leaving it there, not leaving and coming with it every day. I have read that it is okay to do that as long as you have a permit. Is the true? Or does it have to be the owner of the business that holds the permit?
Hopefully that makes some sense. Any other info you can provide on the subject would be great.
If you're referring to Trenton, NJ, the PA permit is not recognized there.
From the State Police Firearms FAQ (sorry, can't link to it - it's a CCW app I have downloaded:
How do I apply for a permit to carry a handgun?
If you reside in New Jersey, you must apply with municipal police department where reside. If the municipality where you reside is serviced by the New Jersey State Police, you must apply at the station which covers your municipality. Out of state residents must apply to the New Jersey State Police station nearest to their geographic location. Armored car employees must apply with the New Jersey State Police, regardless of where they reside.
New Jersey does not have laws which allow individuals with valid permits to carry a handguns from other states to carry a handgun in New Jersey.
