A person I work with, his father passed away last week. His father had owned a .38 pistol, since he was a retired LEO. The son is wondering what to do about the pistol. I told him he might need to go to his local Police Department to get a permit to own it, but I wasn't absolutely sure. Any advise for a New Jersey resident?

Call the State of New Jersey firearms department and ask. They might even have a web site on firearms which discusses inheritance.

Tell him to take the pistol, place it carefully inside a 20' panel truck, surrounded by his belongings and household furnishings, and drive slowly and carefully out of New Jersey...and don't go back. Safest course of action, all things considered.

I couldn't agree with you more. If it were only that simple.

About the ONLY good thing about NJ gun laws is ---> THE Loophole! If the father willed his son the firearm (get creative here...), and the son is qualified to own a firearm (ie: no criminal background, etc..), the son can simply take the gun home !
