I have had my Firearms I.D. Card app. REFUSED TO BE ACCEPTED twice due to answering "YES" to the question: "Have you EVER spoken to a Mental Health Care Professional?" Due to a 25 year-old "Depressive Episode." They literally REFUSED TO ACCEPT MY APPLICATION! I was told I MUST submit a letter from the Dr. who treated me stating I am no longer depressed AND that there is NO REASON the State of NJ shouldn't give me a rifle or shotgun! You see, the statute describes this "FID CARD" as required to PURCHASE A FIREARM in NJ, but local PD MANDATES that you cannot travel from your home to the range, or ANYWHERE unless you can present the card ON DEMAND, or you will be charged with a Class 3 Crime (Felony equivalent!) to get such a letter, I was advised to retain an Atty. ($2,500) who will utilize a psychiatrist to produce this letter for another $1,000! I ABSOLUTELY REFUSE TO BE EXTORTED! I contacted 5-6 lawyers in NJ & Pennsylvania, and this is the ONLY Atty,.that responded. Is this or is this not at worst: extortion, or @ the very least: Infringement of my 2nd Amendment Rights?! I have recently written to a Senator for my district, but haven't heard back from him yet. What would YOU do? BTW, I have held CCW Permits for the past 12 years from Ohio (Resident,) and Arizona (non-res currently.) After posting a similar POST previously, this same Atty. replied to my post, admitting that it was "UNFORTUNATE" that such steps are necessary in NJ, but... It is what it is! Nice, huh? He's in agreement that it's "too bad" while he's complicit in lining HIS pockets by benefitting from the extortion practice.
