    I have Read on here about people arrested in parkinglots of gun ranges or shops for having the weapon not in a case.
    Then theres all that Firearm permit and approval crapola that happens on their end, worse if its a handgun, as they can only buy 1 pistol for each permit.
    What a screwed up mess that state is.
    Thats what I figured. Thanks man

    On the state police website http://www.njsp.org/firearms/transport-firearm.shtml it tells how to transport a firearm into NJ. It doesn't state under what conditions this action can take place.

    I believe your friend would need to have a FOID or FID card before a NJ FFL does the transfer.

    IANAL.

    OK, so just a thought to add on to the OP's post.

    Father/mother sell house in another state and resides at your residence in Pa for 4 months. During those four months the father/mother gift family firearms/handguns to you here in Pa. . A few weeks later Father/mother close on new house in another state.
    Is FFL transfer required at all?

    If they never change their driver licences I would say it could be a problem. I believe the text says resident. I know there have been people hemmed up for less. I do not agree that it would be just but when it comes to guns judges and prosecutors are very douchey.
    Some people just plain suck.
    If you're gonna be dumb ya gotta be tough.

    They would have to change/declare their residency to PA before they could do the parent/child no paperwork transfer. Just because they are living with someone (even their child) in a different state does not make them legal residents of that state.
