NJ gov has a standing order, if visiting from 34 states, must quarantine for 14 days. Power company won’t pull in out of state crews because of it.

Electric company gave us an Estimated restoration date - August 11.  Heading out to buy block ice to keep the freezer food cool, if I can find any.

Always easier to work from a full size screen rather than a micro on a phone.

Here in NJ it takes about a month to get all of the paperwork signed off and a state permit in addition to the FFL.
3 neighbors have to return a questionnaire attesting you are not nuts.
Chief of police has to interview you.
State application fee
State permit fee.
....then there is more if you want a concealed carry permit.

The blasted red tape cost me a chance for a late 30's WWII Luger with a matching magazine number. I couldn't get the state permit in time.

...unless you buy person to person.  I saw a nice browning side by side being offered on Gun Broker by a local.  I made an offer and the guy accepted.  I told him I lived 15 miles away and can bring cash or pay through the site and he pays the fees.  He opted for the cash on delivery.  I go pick it up.  He never asks to see my FFL.  Beautiful gun, said he was selling because his kid was starting college.  So I get home and Googled his name.  Turns out he was the police chief in that town.  He did watch me place it in the trunk of the car though.

NJ also doesn't follow the Gun Control Act of 1968 and requires the FFL on pre-1899 long guns and state permit for handguns.

Holy smokes that takes some effort. IA is a shall issue state on permit to acquire for long guns. Concealed carry here required attending a firearms safety class. CCW doubles as permit to acquire. Took seven days for permit to arrive after filing application. No FFL required. Piece of cake.

Have a great day word!

Legit sales process is toughest in the country.

Purchase permit is only good for 30 days.  Usually takes 7 days for it to come in the mail after the interview with the chief so that leaves you 3 weeks to buy. The dealer has to do another federal background check. Pay, now you have a 7 day wait period to pick it up.  Then you have to register the address of the gun with the state within 7 days.  That timetable is entirely dependent on neighbors returning the acknowledgment and personal statement quickly, if it all. You have to keep checking back with the PD, but can have the questionnaire sent to others, until you get three to respond. 

Until recently, I could go to a PA gun show and buy over the counter, same day after a background check.  Not anymore. PA sellers won't sell over the counter to NJ anymore.  I have to have it shipped to someone with a federal dealer permit, and that cost another fee, and then the same process before they hand it over. Or, go with a PA resident that pays. 

We can't even go to VA anymore and buy over the counter at gun shows.  Because of the hassle, about the only ones selling these days are the private shooting ranges.
