New Jersey –-( In direct response to the concerns of our membership, NJ2AS will begin an exciting new project to seek improvements to the current process to obtain Firearms Owner Identification (FOID) cards and/or Handgun Purchase Permits(HPP or P2P).

The current process is both antiquated and fraught with completely unacceptable delays.

We have decided our primary focus at this time will be addressing these “illegal additional forms” and the OUTRAGEOUS delays.

If you are familiar with our existing OPERATION ESTABLISH COMPLIANCE (OEC), you know that we have already had a great deal of success in dealing with municipalities throughout the state.

We have contacted and are in the process of contacting additional attorneys who are willing and able to help us go after the worst offending municipalities and NJSP barracks. Our contention is that if ANY municipality can process these applications correctly and on time, they ALL can; these delays of 3, 6, 9 months and greater are unacceptable and will no longer be tolerated.

In the near future, the leadership team of the NJ2AS will be asking for your help and cooperation in addressing, and ONCE AND FOR ALL overcoming these ridiculous, outrageous delays. Over the next few weeks, we will be collecting specific information we intend to use to attack the spurious claims of our public officials that they are processing these applications within the dictates of the law. We are confident their position will not be able to stand up to even the lowest levels of judicial scrutiny. We thank all of you for being loyal supporters of the NJ2AS and ask you to stand with us in moving this mission forward.

As a final note, stay confident that the New Jersey Second Amendment Society (NJ2AS) has not and never will abandon our efforts to overcome the obstacles the three branches of New Jersey government impose upon our human right to keep and bear arms (RKBA) for legitimate purposes, INCLUDING and ESPECIALLY the right to carry a sidearm for defense of life, family and vital property.

***NOTE: If you are an attorney and are interested in getting more involved in pursuing the legal processing of these applications, please contact either Rich or me by email at [email protected] or [email protected]

Thank you,
Frank Jack Fiamingo – President
Rich Petkevis – Executive Director

Instead of wasting time on forms why not get rid of the entire FID process?

With republican leadership you should be able to erase the FID and have what pa has.

That is unless Christie is a farse which we all know he is.

The present process is so convoluted and contradictory as to have the effect of nullifying the US Constitutional right to possess a firearm. Such regulations, whether intentional or not, are so burdensome, so onerous, that the average US citizen in NJ has to jump through so many hoops that there is no realistic right to keep arms because it is so difficult to purchase any. Just as some states once denied the effective right to vote using closed primaries, literacy tests and poll taxes to restrict the right to vote, states like NJ use these arcane restrictions to deny the… Read more »
