Today I’d like to talk to you about carrying firearms during the summertime at outings and events in New Jersey.
In New Jersey, very few people have a license to carry a handgun. As a matter of fact, in the state of 10 million people, I believe there’s slightly over 1,000 people who have a carry license. Because New Jersey laws limit law-abiding citizens, from getting a carry license.
Carrying is Limited
If you don’t have a carry license, you should not be carrying at any type of summertime outing or event unless it’s on your own property. There is an exemption under N.J.S. 2C:39-6e to possess a firearm. You can carry it loaded, in your own home, or on your own property, but off your property, the exemptions don’t exist.
If you have any more questions about this topic, feel free to give U.S. LawShield a call and ask to speak with your Independent Program Attorney.
