New Jersey Law In Depth

Matthew Geib of Wall, NJ goes for his carry permit in NJ. Check it out:

I am a lifelong resident of New Jersey and have been a law-abiding hunter, fisherman and gun owner for decades. My professional career and education make me different from the stereotypical "hunter" image. I had long accepted and somewhat agreed with New Jersey's strict firearms regulations — until I applied for my first handgun permit.
It's kinda painful, reading that.

Update: Uncle squares me away:

No, Rusty, he’s not doing that for a carry permit. He’s doing all of that for an ownership permit. In Jersey.
Ho-lee sheepshit, that's what I get for living in a free state, I guess. I see handgun permit and ASSume it means you can actually carry it.

Silly me.

Still glad I'm a hick.

Yep, here in Mass open carry is perfectly legal, but most people who are stopped by the police to check their permit find their permits revoked on next renewal. Permits can be revoked for any reason (the above is usally cited as "signs of bad judgement") and our permits are for OWNERSHIP, as well as carry. Permit gone, so are your guns....which are also all registered to the state with no ability for legal private sale off the books.

This is why we fight, and fight HARD.

If you think that's bad, check out what you need to do to get a permit for a hunting rifle in DC.

I would, but I'm afraid my eyes would bleed.

Blogrolled ya, BTW.
