New Jersey Imposes Draconian Firearms Rules on Civilian Marksmanship Program
The CMP has done business this way for 107 years with law abiding NJ gun owners and marksmen, with not one single problem. NJ just wants to make money on the sale and make it harder to exercise your second amendment rights – AmmoLand.com
CAMP PERRY, OHIO – -(AmmoLand.com)- On 12 April CMP representatives met with representatives of the NJ State Police and the NJ Attorney General’s office.
At issue was the fact that CMP customers were receiving rifles at their home and not from a firearms dealer licensed by the state.
It was the opinion of the representatives of both the NJ State Police and the AG’s office that NJ requires all firearm transactions be face to face and the transfer of a rifle be made to the customer by a NJ licensed dealer.
Therefore, NJ residents cannot certify paragraph K on the CMP order form that reads: “I further certify that I will not be in violation, by reason of my receipt or possession of a rifle, of any state law or published ordinance applicable where I reside”.
Effective immediately, rifles sold and shipped to NJ residents must be shipped to NJ licensed firearms dealers. Customers should provide CMP with copies of the dealer’s FFL and NJ State license, along with the CMP order form.
This applies to all rifle orders we have already received and not yet shipped. Each of those customers will be contacted individually this week.
New Jersey residents who visit either CMP store may purchase and pick up rifles without the necessity of going through a NJ licensed dealer.Orest Michaels
