New Law In Effect 01/01/2010 Regarding Handgun Purchase
If you are applying for permits along with your firearms identification card, be advised that there is a new law in effect (N.J.S. 2C:58-3) which limits your handgun purchase to ONE every thirty day period.
You may apply for more than one permit on your application but may only use ONE per thirty day period. Anything other than this is a violation.
