That's what we should all hope it would be because I'm sure the rest of America (short of California) allow it. But this is NJ... if I don't read it in the statutes, I don't believe it
Did you ever get stopped by a police officer while transporting a firearm at 15 on a bike to go hunting?
Not stopped by cop but an anti hunter called the cops on me. But here is the exceptions in title 58
