The lawyer explains the regulations of New Jersey law that govern who can and cannot legally own and purchase a firearm according to state law. The attorney also emphasizes the necessity of obtaining a Firearms Purchaser Identification Card or an FPIC for individuals who wish to purchase a firearm.

Attorney Adam M. Lustberg also discusses the fact that the law prohibits people under a certain age from applying for a permit. People under 18 are prohibited from applying for any type of firearms license and those under 21 for a handgun unless required by their job. The attorney also explains that people who have been convicted of domestic violence, violent crimes, and drug crimes are prohibited under New Jersey law from buying firearms. The prohibition also applies to those who are committed to mental health treatment and those listed under a terror watch list.

The attorney emphasizes the gravity of being charged with gun crimes under New Jersey law. Offenses falling under gun crimes in New Jersey include unlawful possession of firearms, using a firearm for unlawful purposes, unlawful possession of an illegal weapon, and possessing a firearm while committing a crime.

Attorney Lustberg enumerates the four degrees of firearms offenses and discusses the prison sentence and fines under each degree. The attorney also explains that a conviction on a first-degree charge, the most severe of the four, may incur a 10 to 20-year prison sentence and the defendant may be made to pay fines of up to $200,000.

“New Jersey’s strict gun laws can affect you even if you don’t live here but have crossed the border into the state. Our gun laws require that all individuals be properly permitted, carry the appropriate identification, are of the required age limit, and are not in possession of a prohibited weapon,” according to the criminal defense lawyer.

Lastly, attorney Lustberg explains that, in the event of being charged with a gun crime in New Jersey, hiring an experienced lawyer is invaluable in making sure an individual’s rights are protected.
