    If I may, and if the mods will allow, can I suggest your friend join another forum (njgunforums.com) and post up the information he was told is lead to believe that does not allow him to have his legally owned firearms at his new residence, and why he feels they can be safely stored at his parents. I'd like to voice some thoughts on the above, but would like to obtain more information before doing so, so as to fully understand his situation.

    He will find me there, as well as many other nj gun law knowledgeable individuals.

    Please see above as well. I suspect there's a serious misunderstanding, or serious provision of misinformation going on to herrwalther's friend.

    While Federal law would seem to allow you to pass through the state of Armpit has a different view. If the standard capacity magazine was discovered you would be arrested, thrown in jail, and have to stand trial.

    The same thing has happened to people who's planes have been diverted to airports in NYC and NJ.

    Thank you for the response folks. Now I know to just stay out of the east coast or maybe just stay west of the Eastern Time Zone. Though I do have to deal with Illinois!

    More background about my friend in NJ. He has a FID for both rifles and handguns, and has a few of both. He does not have a CCW permit as he does not have enough "need" to qualify for one in NJ. The address on his FID cards, and where his firearms are stored, is his parent's house. He is a newlywed and got married in May. They bought a house about 30 minutes or so away from his parent's. From what he has told me, he is not allowed to move his firearms to the new residence until he gets updated FID cards. If he was told wrong I will happily pass along the information to him as well as the forum website.

    Just be glad you don't LIVE in Illinois !! You are, however, much closer to "Shicago" than I am. And, to add "insult to injury", outgoing mayor Rahm is proposing a 20-30 cent increase in the gasoline tax to help pay for "infrastructure repairs". As proposed, over half of the statewide tax that is collected would go to "Shicago" and C(r)ook County. Not surprising considering the bloated whale who is our next governor.

    In my opinion it is not that they want their freedoms taken away, it is too many people that never touched, held, or shot a gun are buying into the gun control lie. We all want to see suicide by gun prevented, murder and all other bad uses eliminated. The problem is over half of the voting public believe that by restricting law abiding citizens of their rights the bad guys will be prevented from getting and using guns to hurt people.
    For most of us that defies all logic, if you do not know better it makes perfect sense.

    Not to hijack this thread but I am only 5 minutes from the Illinois border, was raised and lived in McHenry County until early 80's and still have family in Illinois. At one time had an Illinois FIOD card. The reasons you mentioned are the reasons I left. Chicago has now pushed all the way to the state line.

    He was told wrong.

    The FID is for purchasing handgun ammunition and long rifles, in the state. Said card is not needed for rifle or shotgun ammo. An FID has no bearing on his possession of a handgun. It is in fact perfectly legal to own a handgun WITHOUT the possession of an FID, and perfectly possible to purchase one, but practically no one ever does that.

    The address on his FID has ABSOLUTELY NO BEARING on where he can store his firearms, as long as he is the only one who can gain access to said firearms (without a legal transfer occurring), and/or they are stored his primary place of residence, which would be determined by his driver's license.

    Further he has no legal requirement to inform his new location's police force as to his possession of any firearms at his residence. Only if he intends to purchase any new handguns will he need to obtain a P2P for those specific handgun(s).

    AlexanderA: Quite true about "navel gazing" etc among pro-Second Amendment people.

    The obstacle is that tighter restrictions are passed soon After a mass tragedy involving young people.
    It would require the most astute, brilliant powers of oratory and argument among pro-gun people on television to be persuasive about "pro AR 15 ownership" and "normal capacity" magazines, just days after a massacre involving these. If this pro-gun persuasion somehow were effective, the Mainstream Media would edit it just enough to distort, and weaken the persuasion.

    When tv news is 'created' to elicit only emotional reactions after these events, no fact-based argument in opposition ever seems to penetrate the skulls of the masses, who aren't Able to be rational while repeatedly watching tv images of children running (as "Safety Officers" or ill-led LEOs crouch behind brick columns or cars).

    They will learn. Cut by cut, either make a stand or move out. I vote make a stand. This is a test for what they can get away with nationwide. They should not comply with such a law. Hiding them is plain stupid. It’s still an effective ban on an item that two weeks ago was legal. What good is a tool that cannot be used? To add insult to injury, you are either going to turn them in or become a felon or have them confiscated all because some politician decided they are no longer legal? They going to take your stuff without compensation for said items? Nope, not in my world. That’s stealing. What if you had $200k of stuff and overnight it was all illegal, then they decide you don't turn it over they will come and take it? No compensation, they are just going to round it up are you going to comply?

    Like I said in another post, cut by cut, little by little. They went from what 30? Then it was 15 round max, then 10, now 7. If you think this is going to stop there then you are dreaming. It’s time to man up. There needs to be a mass show of force against this. No compliance. March on the capital with mags in hand. 3000 people plus. Hell there are people out of state willing to join you. I would be one of them if someone puts such a protest together. March, yell, burn stuff if you have to. It’s worked for the other side, why not for gun owners in NJ? Those of you who decide that it must be fought by writing your congress critters or whoever else will accept mail from you are delusional. Those tactics clearly aren’t working as your rights are constantly under scrutiny of being wiped away everyday and many times they seem to be going away little by little. Does that sound like a winning strategy to keep doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result? And no, I don’t recmonmend people run either. Everyone wants to do that and at some point you will run out of places to run. Man up and make your stand in NJ! Your local gun clubs should already be organizing a protest and fighting this crap. Hell there are people willing to bus magazines into the state, if need be. Haha. Either make the stand or give them up now because if you don’t fight this then your guns will be next. It may be a few years but it won’t be long.

    I completely agree with what you're saying here. I think gun owners often dismiss the lunacy going on in other states, and look down on other gun owners who live in those states (with an attitude that "they'd move if they cared"). These gun owners often fail to realize how quickly the political landscape can change in their own state. Colorado, for instance, was a pretty red state just 15 years ago. Then we were a "swing" state. Now we're solid blue. Along with that transition has come an increasingly concerning attack on some of our civil liberties (such as gun rights).

    Now, some people tell me that I should just up and move somewhere else. Well, that's easier said than done... it isn't like I haven't dreamt of the idea. This would have been easy to do 15+ years ago, but it isn't now. I have a wife and daughter in this state, and my wife's entire family is here. My career is here, and I worked hard to get to the point I'm at in my career (and wouldn't have an easy transition to just move to another state with my job). I own a house here, my friends are here, and I've simply built a life here.

    The opposition has a majority in our politics, but that doesn't mean the state is entirely filled with morons... we have just enough for mob rule, but mob rule shouldn't override the constitutional rights enumerated in the founding documents of the republic in which we all live. In 2016 around 1.3 million Coloradans voted for the Democratic presidential candidate. Around 1.2 million people voted for the republican. By any measure the Democrat won by around 100,000 votes, but the "minority" party out here still represented 48% of votes cast.

    What does all of this mean?

    Well, to me it suggests that we can't move away from these problems. We need to start legally fighting these battles in the states in which we live. We can't just continue to give another inch, and another inch, all in the name of safety. There will never be enough gun control laws to keep the gun control lobby happy (at least not short of total disarmament).

    As for the original question from this thread:

    If I lived in NJ I would refuse to comply with this law. I believe such a measure to be unconstitutional, and I won't give up my rights, my freedom, or my property just because some bureaucrat tells me to do so. But, I'd probably stop keeping that property at my house, and find somewhere to cache those items for future use. I wouldn't want to get in trouble, but that doesn't mean they can have my stuff, either.

    It is too late to try to change people's minds about guns after a tragedy. What I was trying to say about engagement with urban people (as opposed to "navel gazing") was that we should try to condition them to be pro-gun before things like that happen. The emotional response to tragedy happens because people are already conditioned to be antigun. We see that in the difference in reactions to mass shootings in Texas, for example, compared to Connecticut. There were mass shootings recently in Texas, but they didn't immediately result in calls for more statewide gun restrictions.

    Yes. Your enemies new strategy with the help of Bloomberg and the likes financial backing is to pump previously red states with people and resources to turn them blue. All one has to do to figure this out is actually pay attention. It’s happening in a lot of states that were solid red just a few short years ago. Hell look at Alabama, Georgia and Texas. Those states have always been pretty much solid red and all of a sudden Cruz nearly lost to Beto, Doug Jones was elected in Bama and in GA just barely skated by. There is a strategy to this. All of these states that have gone from red to blue or red to purple just didn’t change overnight. We didn’t just all of a sudden have a couple hundred thousand far lefty Californians move to CO. There is a strategy to this and if you cannot see that then you are completely blind. The sad thing is, many of the people that know anything are older! I would guess that the majority of this board is 60-70’s. Yes that’s quite an assumption. I’m in my low 30’s but I seem to be a minority in many places of gun lovers. If we don’t start turning the tide soon, there might not be many of us here left to put up the good fight. Most of the younger generations are brainwashed.

    SilentStalker: My 30 year-old son seems to get most or all of his news from his 'mobile device'. Maybe via Facebook, where he advertises his professional photography services.

    We know which viewpoint is created by Silicon Valley. ****ist Brainwashing. It doesn't help that he married a lady from no. CA, although she is moderate and also has plenty of common sense. Luckily CA cities have become far too expensive and over-taxed, convincing them to remain here.

    It's a real shame to not want to discuss any major domestic or international issues with your only child, because he will only quote talking points from whatever leftist news source.

    When I lived in NYC I personally knew several people that were republican/conservative who felt voting was a waste of time since they did not stand a chance of winning.

    I personally think blue state election results are skewed because of this happening.

    Back when I lived in NYC I had the Target handgun permit. It was supposed to take 90 days but it took 11 months for it to be approved. I could never get a straight answer from the permit dept as to why it was taking so long. I did find out one detective working on it retired and another went on leave. So I guess it just sat on desk gathering dust.

    Coincidentally, it took over a year to get my FL ccw due to a bunch of problems beyond my control, and I had to pay all the fees twice to finally get it.

    Don't worry, I'm in my late thirties, and my wife is in her mid-thirties. There are plenty of us here who will be around for quite a while still :)

    Trust me Doug Jones did NOT get in because Alabama is going blue, he got in because: ROY MOORE. Moore was a lousy candidate and republican voters stayed home in droves. Jones is in for one, then he's DONE.
    In addition, the Alabama Democrat party is in terrible shape.

    Your points regarding others states remain valid, however.....

    To accomplish this all guns would have to be taken away from hands of the public. It's hard to believe some people are that stupid.

    That's right. The conventional wisdom is that Jones is going to lose in 2020. That means that the Democrats must pick up at least 4 seats to win control of the Senate. They might just do it, assuming that there's an anti-Trump tidal wave.
