Just be glad you don't live here in Illinois.. at least you have the right to get a carry permit.. we cannot whatsoever.. if we want to carry we have to go through a loophole in the law, which since most Leo don't know the laws in the first place we risk being arrested and jailed till it goes to court and (hopefully) thrown out.. assuming the judge isn't an idiot or anti gunner.. or more likely both... kinda go hand in hand don't they?
Nj is not a right to Cary state out of 2 plus million people in the state only about 1600, yes one thousand six hundred people out of 2 million. Leo's and retired Leo's get denied all the time. And when the national right to carry does pass new jersey law makers will make it so if you have ever been pulled over for speeding the will deem you with aggressive tendencies and deny you. I'm just glad to be moving to a gun friendly state!!
