3 Mistakes that Could Land You in a New Jersey Jail Cell…

The following is a video transcript.

Hello, Evan Nappen here, U.S. LawShield Independent Program Attorney for New Jersey. Today I want to talk to you about three common mistakes that New Jersey gun owners can make, and I do not want you to make them.

Mistake #1: Selling or Transferring a Firearm Without Going Through a Dealer

New Jersey has banned the private sale of firearms. Even with the paperwork, all sales of firearms have to go through a dealer. The only narrow exception is for immediate family members. But short of that, everything goes through a dealer.

Mistake #2: Using Hollow Nose Ammunition Outside of the Narrow Restrictions

Mistake number two: using hollow nose (or hollow point) ammunition. Hollow nose ammunition is lawful, but it is narrowly restricted. You can go from the place of purchase to your home, or you can go to the target range, or use it for hunting, if lawful for (what you are) hunting. But that is it. If you are outside those exemptions, you can have a serious problem.

Mistake #3: Possession of Magazines for Semi-Automatic Firearms Capable of Holding Over Ten Rounds

Finally: magazines. New Jersey has banned all magazines that hold over 10 rounds and that fit into semi-automatic firearms, and there is no grandfathering. Make sure you do not possess any of these magazines.

Do not make any of these common mistakes. If you have any more questions, please call U.S. LawShield and ask to speak to your Independent Program Attorney. Thanks.

  1. I’m glad you guys have a lawyer there that takes guts to be a lawyer and an anti-gun State like that God bless you hopefully things will get better in the future

  2. I am 71 and still an avid hunter and shooter. I have been shooting since I was 7. I have seen the laws change in New Jersey since I got back from Viet Nam. When I left in 1968 the GCA of 68 was just taking hold. The restrictions now are some of the worst in the nation. I joined US Law Shield a few years ago, and I am very glad I did. I have gone to a few of Evan Nappen’s seminar , and they are extremely informative, and he gives a very good presentation. He gives it straight. We walk a fine line here in this state to be able to enjoy the shooting sports. But, listen to Evan and you can rest easy . Be safe, join the NRA, buy Evan’s book on the laws in NJ.

  3. With respect to the 10 round magazines; it is my understanding that under HR 218, there is an exemption and 15 round are allowed.

  4. I have been a member of US Law Shield for a few years now and I am extremely grateful to all of the experts and especially EVAN NAPPEN, for their guidence and wisdom. Living in NJ can be a challenge for law abiding citizens who believe in the 2nd Amendment. The instruction and information that is shared with us at the US Law Shield seminars is invaluable.
