Cryan and Codey are grandstanding a-holes and if Crispy Cream supports this measure he is done politically.Wow, as if it weren't bad enough already in New Jersey. Needless to say, this is NOT something we need.
That is simply insane but then again it's better than them telling you 30 days and having to wait 5 months anyway. I only hope that my pistol purchase permit doesn't take as long as that. My town is usually back logged by about an additional 30 days for FPID cards. I hope that can be kept the most minimal additional time.Millwright said:My son and his lady - professional EMTs - have been told to expect a "waiting period" of up to five months for their NJFOIC. And these folks have already been "background checked" multiple times ! >MW
This is what really pisses me off about these laws. They pass a burdensome law that requires detailed background and mental health check then plain out lie about the time required to meet the "reasonableness" test. For example the law clearly states that in regards to an FOID or a pistol purchase permit the Chief of Police "shall issue" in 30 days maximum. Clearly 5 months is longer than 30 days but there is not a damned thing we can do about it because the Courts have ruled that the time requirement is meaningless and if the state is too busy and it takes longer then tough shiz. Try using that one the next time you get a speeding ticket, sorry officer I am late for work and don't have the time to obey your silly speed limit laws.drvsafe said:That is simply insane but then again it's better than them telling you 30 days and having to wait 5 months anyway.

In what county of NJ did they apply?
I am absolutely sure that it has but the point is, they made the law they should have to follow it regardless of whether 1 or 1 million people apply in a month. This is exactly how they get away with "back door" infringement of our rights. Create an overly burdensome law with "reasonable" restrictions then understaff the departments involved so that most people will simply choose to not go through the hassle of a 4-6 month application process. Voila...de facto gun ban.I wonder how much the overall increase in gun sales subsequently created a backlog and could be in part responsible for the longer wait times? Not to defend them in any way, I had to wait 3 months for my pistol purchase permits and this was in march of 2012! No assault weapons ban fear then.
Sorry, but Jersey is worse than NY, but they both stink. Unlike the 15 round max allowed in NJ, NY restricts mags to 10 maximum capacity except for LE, or .22's with tubular mags. Only those guns and high capacity mags manufactured earlier than Sept 1994 were grandfathered in. Many new handguns manufactured today cannot unfortunately be purchased in NYS, cause most accept over 10 rounds except for sub compacts and 1911's. That's the only advantage living in Jersey.just another reason why NJ sucks ... every bit as much as NY
sorry Pyle, my condolences
