New Jersey --(Ammoland.com)- The New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) is pleased to announce that 8 more towns have agreed to comply with NJ state law and remove their illegal additional forms when applying for a NJ Firearms ID card and/or NJ Permit to Purchase a Pistol.
These towns are:
- Franklin (Hunterdon)
In most cases, the town and/or chief of police were cooperative and agreed with NJ2AS after reviewing our complaint. We thank them for their professionalism and support.
Operation Establish Compliance (OEC) is an ongoing project of the New Jersey Second Amendment Society which seeks to notify municipal police departments who are in violation of NJ state law with regard to firearms permitting and help them correct their procedures. Since 2011, twenty towns have agreed to comply with NJ state law thanks to OEC.
NJ State Law says:
2C:58-3f. … There shall be no conditions or requirements added to the form of content of the application, or required by the licensing authority for the issuance of a permit or identification card, other than those that are specifically set forth in this chapter.
There are municipal police departments that violate this statute as a matter of policy. NJ2AS has seen some of these additional forms, many of which have nothing to do with firearms. If you are a NJ resident who is applying for your firearms identification card or permit to purchase a hand gun, the only forms required by the NJ State law are the SP-66 “Consent For Mental Health Records Search”, and S.T.S 033 “Application for Firearms Purchaser Identification Card and/or Handgun Purchase Permit”.
If your town requires extra paperwork, please visit the Operation Establish Compliance link on the NJ2AS web site (www.nj2as.com) for information regarding what you can do to help correct this problem.
