NICS shut off in NJ

Governor Murphy should focus on securing whatever federal funds for residents and businesses vs instructing NJSP to off NICS violating taxpayers 2A rights. In direct contrast to what the Illinois Governor did.

I can't believe he was able to do this. The anjrpc is going to be suing him soon over this.

How is shutting down NICS going to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, exactly? Oh that's right, whenever there is an impending public crisis be sure to tie up and muzzle gun owners so that they don't get out of line or cause any problems for the heroic leaders out to save us.

Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

I can't believe he did that. What even gives him the authority to tell a federal agency what to do?

I don't live there but I'm going to say right now that he didn't shut down NICS. He may have done something on the state level, probably did, but he has NO authority over a federal agency

NJ has its own NICS unit that you go through to get to the FBI NICS. This is what Murphy shut down.

All pistol permits first go through NJ State Police who do the background checks. That is what Murphy “turned off” with the end result being the same. Clearly violating anyone’s 2A rights. This, at a time when there’s been reports of creep criminals are posing as CDC going door to door robbing people.

That doesn't surprise me, it's really a shame NJ politics are like that. There are things I like about Jersey but I couldn't deal with there politics, the whole N.E. really.

Ironic how the birthplace of American liberty is now known for oppressing it.

I recently provided the required reference for a friend of mine for his pistol permits which are supposed to be done in 30 days with the new computerized system. It will be interesting to see when they come back.

All firearms background checks go through the NJ state police, the police perform the Fed NICS check themselves. Thus the governor can cut it off anytime he wants to.

Ammo does not require a NICS check, but all guns do. Hence, in NJ one can buy no firearm from an FFL until NJ reopens NICS. Since Gov Murphy is virulently anti-gun, I would not hold my breath.

Unbelievable ... well, unbelievable until one understands today's Democratic Party.

Then it all becomes really clear.

This virus is causing many people to become first time gun owners. People who would not normally think about buying a gun for personal security are rethinking their position on guns and the anti-gun leftist do not like it one bit. It is like the dam sprung a leak and they are doing every thing they can to plug the hole.

Mine were created in less than 4 weeks, but because of the 30 day wait between use of permits, I now have a transfer waiting that I cannot use the permit for until this NICS freeze is over and I already paid for the gun...

My last set came back fast also ( 30 days). Before the new system, I’ve waited 12-16 weeks! In other words, We do enough and jump through their hoops, abruptly stopping it because of corvid19 is BS and unacceptable.

I must not be too unreasonable,

It definately is a potential problem when your trying to stage multiple permits since they’re perishable with expiration dates and 30 day intervals.
