What Are the Weapons Forfeiture Laws in New Jersey?
Under New Jersey Law, if you are deemed unfit to own firearms or are perceived as a risk to the general public or to a particular person, you are risk of having the state:
- Revoke your Firearms Identification Card
- Apply for forfeiture of weapons through the court
The state has 45 days after your weapons are seized to apply for a forfeiture of weapons through the courts. Weapons forfeiture hearings are conducted in the family part of the superior court of New Jersey.
Your case will be decided by a sitting Family Part Judge—not by a jury of your peers. In fact, your weapons can be forfeited and your Firearms Identification Card revoked even if the domestic violence charges and temporary restraining order against you are dismissed. New jersey statute N.J.S.A. 2C:25-21(d)(3) gives the state a wide range of authority when it comes to weapons forfeitures.
