therefrom into a semi-automatic firearm.
SGTBILL is correct... I visit NJ with a gun regularly. I go for training and even some range time now and then. NJ will not allow you to carry the gun on your person. You must have the gun locked (I lock both the gun and the case) in your trunk. Any ammo must be locked in another container in the trunk. You must have your home state FOID or CCW permit with you.Is it possible to visit NJ with a handgun in my vehicle.
Would be there only one day.
As far as the arrest of Mr.Aitken is concernd that case was overturned because of some stupid asses that brought the charges without the right to do so.
SGTBILL has it right again. You would notify the officer that your state has no foid or permit requirement (probably a good idea to have some documentation stating that). It's still legal to bring the gun into the state as long as you transport the gun properly. There's a few nice gun ranges in rural NJ along the NY border that are closer for some NY residents so they shoot at the NJ ranges. No one seems to have any problems even when stopped by police.And what if I don't have any permit/license from my home state or any other state?
Sorry I stand corrected. Years ago I was up there and a friend who was a State Trooper, saw a 15 round mag on my dash ( unloaded) and told me to put it in my tool box in the bed of the truck because it was illegal. As always on this site, don't ask the LEO's what the law is.
