New Jersey is now using an online firearms application and registration system.
From the Cinnaminson Police Department:
A new process has been created in the way you apply for a firearms ID card and/or handgun permits. New Jersey is now using an online firearms application and registration system.
This system has been mandated by the governor’s office and all applicants must utilize this system. This includes anyone obtaining a firearms ID card for the first time, duplicate ID cards, change of address and anyone applying for handgun permits.
To begin the process, you will be required to report to your local police department. Once there, you will be asked to provide a form of ID. Your ID will be copied. You will then have to provide payment prior to receiving instructions on how to apply for your ID card and/or pistol permits.
The fees are as follows:
ID Card: $5.00 (no fee for duplicate ID card)
Pistol Permits: $2.00 each
Once you provide payment, you will be given instructions on how to proceed with your application. If you have any questions about the new process, please contact the Cinnaminson Police Department at (856)829-6666.
You must be 18 to apply for a firearms ID card and 21 to obtain handgun permits.
