    Default Girlfriend lives in NJ

    I currently reside in PA however my girlfriend lives in/resident of NJ. Over the past several months, I've been spending 4-6 days a week at her house. At my home in PA, I have a collection handguns & long guns. I was wondering what the laws are & if it would be legal for me to bring an firearm/ammo to her house when I stay over for home defense? I would transport the firearm unloaded, locked in a GunVault safe in my trunk.

    If this is illegal, would I be able to transfer a firearm to her or have her purchase one in NJ and keep it inside of her home

    Oboy. Are you totally new to this area? Never watch TV or read the paper?

    Listen. Find another girlfriend or make up your mind that you are probably going to become a resident of New Jersey and the freedoms you took for granted here in Penna will for all practical purposes be gone. Whatever you do, do not take a gun, firearm, bang stick, electronic shocking zapper, or more than 1/2 ounce of pepper spray into NJ.

    NJ does not give a damn if a handgun is unloaded, in a locked box, gun vault, separated from anything, or if you have a PA LTCF. You willbe arrested if LE learns you have it outside her house on the roads in your vehicle. Inside her house, can't picture why they would be finding you and your gun in there, but if they do, it is YOUR gun and she didn't know you had it.

    If she wants to purchase a handgun for herself, she has to get a permit to purchase a firearm by applying for said card. I believe it is done through local police, and she can expect to wait a few months to get it. Without the card, no dealer in NJ will even let her look at (handle) a gun.

    Let her apply for a pistol permit and a FID card at her local police dept and then she can buy a firearm for self defense in her home.

    This, why pass up who could be the one? You can figure out the rest later if it works out.

    Maybe if she's freedom minded the process will convince her to leave.

    It's really difficult to own and possess a gun in NJ, so you're out of luck there. But with gun laws that strict, you won't need one anyway. That's how it works, right?

    I hope that you take a shower after you return from that Soviet cesspool.

    Move her to PA.
