You must go your local Police Chief and apply for, and receive, both a NJ Firesrms Purchaser Identification Card and a Handgund Purchase Permit for each handgun that you wish to aquire. This requires completing a form with your history and references and getting fingerprinted. They then submit your application to the State Police. It can take a year to get approved and I understand it averages about six months now (when I did it in the early '80s it took three months).What is the process simply to own a HG in NJ? Is it easier(!)in the more rural parts of the state ?
2). As far as I know, no.
