Yea, I got that now, I posted the message as the other guy posted about the federal law.

I have decided to get the firearm in NJ. That way if I do move back there after school, I will not have to attempt to transfer it to NJ.

Yes the speeding ticket points do matter, many people get speeding tickets, and I am sure there are many of you that may classify yourselves as "good drivers" but still gotten a ticket. Also the NMA (National Motorist Association), will happily argue that what the state determines "bad driving" versus what actually causes the most accidents, are very different. See http://www.motorists.org/speed-limits/do-limits-matter . This however is not an issue for this forum.

Thank you for your help, I greatly appreciate it.

-Dave

I seem to recall it being fairly easy to get a ticket in Virginia...

As far as insurance changes, it might turn out to be a good thing. NJ has some of the highest insurance rates in the Country.
Nope, one handgun every 30 days...not counting the day of your last purchase.

You may only acquire a handgun in the state where you reside. There is a legal definition of "place of residence". If you reside in NJ, you can ONLY buy a handgun in NJ. Period. You CAN check about changing your official place of residency to VA. VA driver's license, registered to vote in VA, maintain a home in VA, etc.

However, If you LEGALLY acquire a handgun in NJ, yes, you can bring it to VA. No, VA does not have registration of firearms, and you don't need a license to OWN a gun. You may legally acquire a LONG gun from a dealer in any state, so long as your state does not prohibit that (California prohibits Californians from buying a gun in any other state)

You may only acquire a firearm (handgun or long gun) from a non-dealer when you both reside in the same state.
C3, I think it is legal for a CA resident to purchase a gun in another state as long as they have it shipped to a CA FFL for the transfer. I could be wrong about that though (never done it myself).

They made a similar law here in CA several years ago. Two handguns every 30 days. It was almost six months and 12 handguns before I found out that was a maximum allowed, not the minimum required purchase.

Dad- you are correct. Californian may not take possession from an out state dealer directly, must go to a California FFL.

Don't do this. It's illegal!

The legal way is annoying but not nearly as annoying as all the paperwork that will be filled out during your trial. Plus the prison sentence, that's probably going to be annoying as well.
