Obtaining a Firearms License in New Jersey

Legal Assistance with the New Jersey Gun License Application Process

Before you can exercise your right to bear arms in New Jersey, you must obtain a gun license. Although you might feel that you can do this on your own, the firearms licensing process in New Jersey is very confusing, and several reasons exist to hire a lawyer for help.

First, when applying for your gun license, you must complete various documents, including the Application for Firearms Purchaser Identification Card and the Consent for Mental Health Records Search forms. These must be prepared correctly; otherwise, your application may be delayed or denied. An attorney can ensure that everything in your application packet is in order.

Second, you must go through a background check. Firearms applications are often denied for minor things that happened long ago. When you have a lawyer guiding you through the process, they can review your history and address any potential red flags.

Third, you must wait for a response. New Jersey law says that the agency must let you know within 30 days whether your gun license application was approved or denied. However, they are often delayed for no reason and without recourse. A lawyer can stay on top of your application to facilitate a smooth process in compliance with the law. They can also submit an appeal if your application is denied.
