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.

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

Provided certain conditions are met, a sportsman may transport and use hollow point ammunition. There are no restrictions preventing a sportsman from keeping such ammunition at his home.

N.J.S.A 2C:39-3f(1) limits the possession of hollow nose ammunition. However, there is a general exception that allows for the purchase of this ammunition but restricts the possession of it to specified locations. This exception provides that:

(2) Nothing is sub section f (1) shall be construed to prevent a person from keeping such ammunition at his dwelling, premises or other land owned or possessed by him, or from carrying such ammunition from the place of purchase to said dwelling or land . . . [N.J.S.A 26:39-3g (2)].

Thus a person may purchase this ammunition and keep it within the confines of his property. Sub section f (1) further exempts from the prohibited possession of hollow nose ammunition "persons engaged in activities pursuant to N.J.S.A 2C:39-6f. . . ."
N.J.S.A 26:39-3f. (1).

Activities contained in N.J.S.A 26:39-6f. can be broken down as follows:

1.A member of a rifle or pistol club organized under rules of the National Board for the Promotion of Rifle Practice and which filed its charter with the State Police;
2.A person engaged in hunting or target practice with a firearm legal for hunting in this State;
3.A person going directly to a target range, and;
4.A person going directly to an authorized place for "practice, match, target, trap or skeet shooting exhibitions."

As with other ammunition and firearms, a sportsman would have to comply with the provisions of N.J.S.A 2C:39-6f and g when transporting hollow nose ammunition to a target range. The ammunition should be stored in a closed and fastened container or locked in the trunk of the motor vehicle in which it is being transported. The course of travel should be as direct as possible when going to and leaving from the target range with "only such deviations as are reasonably necessary under the circumstances." N.J.S.A 2C:39-6g.

If the sportsman's club member plans to hunt with a rifle and use hollow nose ammunition in a state where this is permitted, he must comply with the provisions of U.S.C.A. 926A and N.J.S.A 2C:39-6(f) and (6)(g), which is consistent with the federal law, in transporting the firearm and ammunition. The firearm should be unloaded and neither the firearm nor the ammunition should be readily accessible from the passenger compartment. If the vehicle does not have a trunk, the firearm and the ammunition should be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or the console. 18 U.S.C.A. 926A.

In addition, the sportsman should have a valid hunting license in his possession from the state in which he plans to hunt and should be familiar with that state's gun laws. N.J.S.A 2C:39-6(f)(2) requires a person hunting in this State to have a valid hunting license in his possession while traveling to or from the hunting area. Hunting with hollow nose ammunition is permitted in New Jersey. In the case of a New Jersey resident traveling to another state to hunt, it logically would follow that the hunting license would be from the state where the hunter is going. Although the federal statute does not require possession of a hunting license, it does require that the person transporting the firearm be going to a state where possession of that object is lawful. A valid hunting license from that state effectively supplies the proof.

These conditions for use and transport of hollow nose ammunition are consistent with the legislative intent to restrict the use of such ammunition to a limited number of people. It is well established that in construing a statute exceptions are to be "strictly but reasonably construed, consistent with the manifest reason and purpose of the law." Service Armament Co. v. Hyland, 70 N.J. 550, 558-559 (1976). The State Supreme Court has "characterized the Gun Control Law as 'highly purposed and conscientiously designed toward preventing criminal and other unfit elements from acquiring firearms while enabling the fit elements of society to obtain them with minimal burdens.'" Id. at 559.

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.
