Any firearms which are substantially identical to any of the above firearms; any semiautomatic shotgun with either a magazine capacity exceeding six rounds, a conspicuous pistol grip, or a folding stock; a semi automatic rifle with a fixed magazine capacity exceeding 15 rounds. Any magazine with a capacity greater than fifteen rounds is prohibited, even if there is no semi-automatic firearm to accompany the magazine unless the person has a registered "assault firearm" and the magazine is used for DCM sanctioned shooting matches.
A part or combination of parts to convert or assemble a firearm into an "assault firearm" is also forbidden.
Any "assault firearm" not registered, licensed, or rendered inoperable pursuant to a state police certificate by May 1, 1991, is considered contraband.
Any "assault firearm" which was not owned prior to May 1, 1990, must be licensed. Application is made to the Superior Court for the county in which the person lives or conducts business. The fee is $75. The court must find that the public safety and welfare require the issuance of the license and the person must be qualified to obtain a handgun carrying license. For practical purposes, no one will be issued such a license.
If the owner of an assault firearm which has been registered dies, the owner`s heirs or estate shall have 90 days if unable to get a license to either transfer the assault firearm to any person or firm lawfully entitled to own or possess such firearm; render the assault firearm inoperable; or voluntarily surrender the assault firearm. According to the state police, removal of the firearm from New Jersey to a state where the gun would be legal is also allowed.
I summarized what is illegal in New Jersey and I made a .pdf file of it. See the below link. This is my view and opinion, and open to interpretation of the law, specifically the "SAW" portion. I am not an attorney and do not even play one on TV, but I did sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
New Jersey Illegal Firearms, Weapons & Magazines
pk 90 link didnt work,but good list,no l1a1 on that list or stg,theres still stuff i gotta get..hahhaha
PK - excellent list summarizing all the various restrictions, however I have one question for the NJ hive mind:
Where does Federal EFMJ fall with respect to -> "Body Armor penetrating bullets, Dum-Dum & hollownose bullets"
Of course, the rules were written to be purposefully vague, but EFMJ is designed to rapidly expand upon contact with the target, identical in effect to hollownose. And no one really knows the formal definition of dum-dum because there isn't one.
So hypothetical person "A" with an unloaded Keltec Sub2000 rifle locked securely in the trunk of their car, with a valid NJ FID, plus a box of hollowpoint bullets would be in violation of the law.
Would hypothetical person "B" have a problem with the same scenario except Federal EFMJ? Magazines pre-loaded (though not inserted into the rifle, and certainly not chambered) or not?
Not that anyone would advocate the above scenarios under any circumstances of course.
AKAIK hollow-point bullets aren't illegal for hunting, target practice, and/or home defense as long as you follow the extremely strict rules. You must comply with standard firearm and ammunition transportation rules, of course.
Follows is a link and content of the NJSP writeup about hollow-nose bullets: New Jersey State Police Hollow-Point Bullet Transport and Use Info
So, as long as you follow the rules above exactly you're ok. If you transport the hollow-point bullets from your property it MUST BE to engage in one of the approved activities AND in the above manner. If it isn't for one of the approved activities, then it's illegal. Also, CCW or not, unless you're LEO/Military you cannot "carry" (meaning in a loaded firearm) hollow-point bullets.
EFMJ means Expanding Full Metal Jacket. IMHO, it does not fall into any of these categories. I have asked the old timers what Dum-Dum meant and was told that the hollow points were called this when they first were introduced. I also heard that it was when a cross was cut into a full metal jacketed bullet's nose. Of course you know the answer if you ask the NJSP.
BTW, Hollow Points are not illegal if possession is at the gun store, your home, the range, and land owned by you. Travelling to and from these places are also legal. Just don't stop off anywhere on the way and have a few in your pocket.
Edit: Because GoingIncognito is quicker than me. Get back to work.
Work? What's that?
