Court: City's gun permit applications improper

Posted: Updated:

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - A state appellate court has ruled that Jersey City's gun permit application asks too many questions not permitted by state law.

But Mayor Steve Fulop says the city will appeal the decision, which was issued Monday. He also said the city won't change its permit requirements while the matter goes through the legal system.

The appellate court determined the city required substantially more information from applicants than allowed, such as license plate numbers and waivers authorizing the release of "any and all information" to police.

The ruling stems from a case involving a man who sought to buy two handguns. The city denied him a permit, citing three arrests in Florida and a lack of "good repute."

The man argued the three Florida arrests were for minor offenses and didn't result in any convictions.
