    My buddy wants to but my Ruger but he lives in New Jersey and he says he has to get a license first????

    Can I use a standard bill of sale and is there anyone I have to notify? I live in Virginia.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Interstate sales have to go through an FFL dealer. Don't know what else NJ requires above that.

    Your friend needs a NJ Firearms ID Card and Pistol Purchase Permit. If it is his first time applying, he is looking at least 2 months. Fingerprinting, 2 references, mental health check, criminal history check, certificate of eligibility, copy of birth certificate and driver's license, employer verification, NICS check, money order made out to the NJ state police are all part of it. It will have to be shipped to a NJ FFL.

    Wow. What if I sold it to him when he's visiting me here in Virginia?

    He is still a new jersey resident making it illegal.

    Wow. I actually wish we had this policy.
     
  7. Move to New Jersey, and take anyone who thinks like you with you, and you can have it. :)

    C'mon, you know ours is a joke.
     
  9. I was thinking your first post was a joke. Its pretty scary now that youre serious. Well, at least any vote you cast, will be nullified by mine. :supergrin:

    Ours is bad enough as it is, but its actually better than it was, and not near as bad as some others, like NJ. Why you would want it any stricter is beyond me.

    Not as strict, but a few day waiting period and mental check wouldn't hurt.
     
  11. We had a 48 hour wait for years. It was a PITA, and basically useless, as are all these type laws, including a mental check.

    Do you really? I had to 9 months for a handgun permit because the detective in charge thought if he dragged his feet I would forget about my $900 handgun waiting for me at the store. How about my 64 yr old female client who had to wait 13 months, only getting her permit after her nephew, a lieutenant in another department, strongarmed the detective in charge into giving it to her? You disgust me, you have no idea what we go through in NJ - weapons banned by certain names and/or features, ridiculous waiting periods, never ending fees, 15 rd mag limit(some politicians trying to take it down to 10), smart gun legislation, ID cards, etc. All of this and it does nothing to stop crime(take a stroll through Camden, unarmed of course since we have no CCW)As someone else said, move here and try it for yourself.

    Should have the same policy to become a pet owner or parent. Like owning fire arms it is a great responsibility. :whistling:

    I hope to God you are joking. Shall not be infringed is pretty damn clear. The government has no business telling anyone who can and cannot buy a gun. People of unstable mental health still have the first amendment. Felons are still able to use the fifth amendment. Why is the second amendment any different?

    I wonder how many New Jersey Criminals follow those procedures to get guns? I suppose since there are all these hindrances in place, there is no gun crime.

    How Utopian.




    I want to be able to make the judgment on other peoples mental state. Works for England. I think if you want a gun you have disqualified yourself.

    You'd both got to federal prison if anybody found out. Then he'd go to state prison after he got out of federal prison, for taking the gun into NJ.
