In the communist state of new jersey one must apply for a permit to purchase a pistol every time. There is a thirty day wait time between pistol purchases with only. Three permits being allowed at one time. Permits cost $2 a permit with an $18 application fee. And the common citizen is not permitted to carry in any place other then their personal property. Jersey is a may issue state but unless you know a judge, are a retired officer, or have a valid reason as to why one's life is in danger the state supreme court may grant a carry permit. The kicker is, if the courts decide your life is in danger and a firearm is valid to protect your mortality,they also decide on how long you will be in danger and grant you a permit for that amount of time... In new jersey threats eventually go away.
