The Firearms Investigation Unit is charged with administering the state firearms control laws and is required to promulgate standards and qualifications for the manufacture and sale of firearms. The unit develops forms for distribution to firearms dealers, police departments and superior courts while acting as a central repository of firearms information relating to the acquisition of firearms in New Jersey.
The Unit has absolute responsibility to investigate applicants for a New Jersey license to retail, wholesale and manufacture firearms and to investigate employees who will actively engage in the sale or purchase of firearms. Each dealer, by statute, is required to keep a record of the acquisition and disposition of firearms. Unit detectives periodically inspect these records to assure that the dealer is complying with existing statutes, as well as regulations promulgated pursuant to these statutes.
