New Jersey gun crime lawyer Adam M. Lustberg releases a new article (https://www.lustberglaw.com/blog/who-is-prohibited-from-buying-a-weapon-in-new-jersey/) explaining the types of people who are prohibited from buying weapons in NJ. The lawyer explains that anyone under 18 years old is not allowed to apply for any firearms license. Anyone under 21 years old is also not allowed to apply for a handgun permit unless it is required for their employment. Each state also has its own rules and guidelines when it comes to firearms purchase and possession.

“New Jersey's firearm laws govern who is allowed to legally purchase or own a firearm. A permit is required to buy a handgun in New Jersey. This permits one handgun per permit. The Firearms Purchaser ID Card allows unlimited shotgun and rifle purchases. They must be obtained either from the local police or New Jersey State Police,” says the New Jersey gun crime lawyer.

The lawyer explains that felonies are generally any offense that can result in a one-year sentence or longer. The lawyer adds that for a New Jersey crime of the first, second, third, or fourth degree, they will be automatically disqualified from applying for a gun permit. A gun permit is required if someone wants to legally purchase or possess firearms in New Jersey.

Attorney Adam M. Lustberg says that for a person to apply for a permit the person must submit their application to the chief of police in their municipality. Once the police finish the background check on the person’s application, they will also look into the mental health records. The police will then have 60 days to respond to the request.

In the article, the lawyer adds, “The police will conduct a background check on your application with the FBI and state police. They will also perform a search for mental health records (for which you need to give written consent) and fingerprint checks (for which two copies must be provided). They will then have 60 days to respond to your request. If you do not receive a response within this time, your application will be considered approved.”

Lastly, the lawyer emphasizes that it is important for anyone who is charged with a gun crime to seek the help of an experienced defense lawyer. Having a skilled gun crimes lawyer may be able to help the defendant protect their freedom and understand their rights in the case.
