Just leave it at home. Too many crazy ass gun laws that they LOVE to throw "foreigners" like you in JAIL for. Not worth the risk. Carry a knife - but you even have to be careful about THAT, and a "less than lethal" alternative - which you ALSO have to be careful about in that Communist state..... Good luck to ya....Unfortunately this is a road trip I can't avoid...
Should I just leave my gun back home in Texas?
Watch your ammo also when in NJ. If I am not mistaken they restrict some ammo types (HP's?).
Bring gun. Lots of ammo.
I used to go to MAHWAH NJ (North America headquarters) for Jaguar Training a few decades ago when I worked at the Jaguar dealer in Fort Worth.My experience says they're Aholes about everything.
