2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill revises the age restrictions governing the issuance of permits to carry handguns to retired law enforcement officers. Currently, retired law enforcement officers may receive a permit to carry a handgun without having to establish "justifiable need" until they have attained the age of 75. This bill increases that age limitation to 82 years of age. In the case of a retired officer who is over 75 years of age, the bill requires the initial and renewal applications to also include a certificate of a medical doctor and a psychologist licensed in New Jersey who have examined the retired officer, stating that the officer does not suffer from a physical or mental defect, disease, or disability which would make it unsafe for that officer to carry a handgun. The examinations are to be conducted only by a medical doctor or psychologist who has not previously rendered any other services to the retired officer.
