New Jersey appellate court on handgun licenses

Jun 13, 2016 | 0 comments

Today’s In the Matter of the Application by Michael McGovern offers some interesting (though non-precedential) views on New Jersey gun law. New Jersey requires a license to buy a handgun, and allows sheriffs to deny such licenses if the person was not of “good character and good repute in the community” or “where the issuance would not be in the interest of the public health, safety or welfare.” There is, however, an appellate review process.
