Please Keep Reporting Fingerprinting & Permitting Issues to ANJRPC








April 7, 2020. Despite Gov. Murphy’s March 30
th executive order reversal allowing gun stores and NICS to reopen, ANJRPC has continued to receive reports that aspects of the permitting process needed to purchase a firearm have been blocked. Specifically, some towns have continued to refuse to process firearms permit applications, and the state’s electronic fingerprinting contractor has refused to process fingerprints for firearms applicants.

As a result of ANJRPC’s lawsuit challenging the closure of gun stores, and our discussions with the Murphy Administration, it appears that fingerprinting should be up and running again. But without a binding court decision or a written commitment from the Murphy Administration that fingerprinting will not be shut down again (which we have asked for but not received), we will not declare victory on this issue until we make certain that this policy change is actually being reflected on the ground.  

Accordingly, ANJRPC is asking gun owners who, on or after April 6, 2020, have experienced any difficulties getting fingerprinted for a firearms permit by the state contractor, or have experienced difficulties with their town processing permit applications, to immediately contact ANJRPC in confidence at

ANJRPC will continue to diligently pursue the complete restoration of the Second Amendment in NJ as quickly as possible.
