NJ Gun Requirements Get Even More Strict

New Jersey places some of the strictest requirements upon gun owners, and those seeking to own a firearm, in the nation.  On Wednesday, April 22, 2015, a New Jersey Appellate Court ruled that even an allegation of past misconduct, even without a conviction, can bar an individual from legally purchasing a firearm.  Here’s more from the Star Ledger:

A New Jersey appeals court ruled Wednesday that a Monmouth County man can legally be denied a gun permit because he was accused of domestic violence in the past, even though he was never convicted.

A three-judge appellate panel ruled that both the Aberdeen police chief and a state Superior Court judge were within their authority under New Jersey law to reject the application of a man — identified only as Z.L. — to buy a handgun and keep it in his home.
