High Capacity Magazine Restrictions in New Jersey (Updated 12/19/19)*

The state of New Jersey recently enacted a law which prohibits high capacity magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds.  The law does not exclude active and retired law enforcement officers residing outside of New Jersey who are traveling to or through the state.  A copy of the law may be found at: https://www.njleg.state.nj.us/2018/Bills/PL18/39_.PDF  

The New Jersey State Police has provided the following guidance in reference to the law changes:

Active duty law enforcement traveling to New Jersey for work related reasons are authorized to carry their duty weapon, ammunition, and magazines, per the departmental guidelines for their department.

Active duty law enforcement traveling to New Jersey for non-work related reasons and carrying under Federal Law HR218 must carry 10 round magazines in their firearm while in the state of New Jersey.  

Active duty law enforcement traveling through New Jersey for non-work related reasons and carrying under Federal Law HR218 may place magazines exceeding 10 rounds in a locked case in the trunk of their vehicle for transport through the state of New Jersey.

Retired law enforcement traveling to New Jersey and carrying under Federal Law HR218 must carry 10 round magazines in their firearm while in the state of New Jersey.  Additionally, they must carry ball ammunition and are prohibited from carrying hollow point ammunition.

Members must be aware of and abide by these provisions to avoid potential legal implications while traveling to or though New Jersey.

Please note, there are currently several bills being put forward to address round capacity and law enforcement exceptions.  Updated information will be provided to members, should the above information change.

On December 19, 2018, New Jersey Governor Philip D. Murphy  signed a bill which revises the state’s new 10-round magazine limit as it applies to active duty law enforcement.

The revised bill introduces the following provisions for active duty law enforcement:

While off-duty, active duty law enforcement traveling to or through New Jersey may carry high capacity magazines capable of holding not more than 17 rounds.  If the high capacity magazine is used with a service firearm issued to the officer by the officer’s employer for use in the officer’s official duties, the magazine may hold more than 17 rounds.

Please note that the revised bill does not contain changes related to retired law enforcement.  Retired law enforcement traveling to New Jersey and carrying under Federal Law HR218 must carry 10 round magazines and are prohibited from carrying hollow point ammunition.
