Becoming a responsible firearm owner takes understanding the gun rights and state laws that apply to you as a New Jersey resident. The state is home to 8.8 million people, but only around 1,000 are licensed to concealed carry. This equates to roughly 0.01% of the population.
Concealed carry licenses are valid for a year, and individuals must be 21 years or older to qualify. How your gun rights translate across state lines is known as reciprocity, and it’s an important aspect of New Jersey concealed carry. The state’s license is honored by reciprocity agreements with 26 others; however, New Jersey does not honor licenses or permits from any other state.
