Governor Murphy has signed legislation moved by the NJ State PBA to exempt law enforcement officers from the magazine capacity limit. The law ensures that active duty officers can carry magazines on and off duty up to 17 rounds and exempts officers authorized to carry rifles capable of holding more than 17 rounds as well. 

The existing law already protected the rights of retired officers to carry 15 round magazines and that exemption remains intact.

We are also addressing the retiree carry rules in their entirety for the next legislative session. It is our hope to clarify and simplify the current legislation to address NJ law and statutes and its relationship with the Federal LEOSA rules.

The General Assembly has unanimously passed legislation today to address the ability of off duty law enforcement officers to carry firearm magazines of greater than 10 rounds. The bill addresses errors in the law identified by the State PBA. This legislation, written at our request, overrules the letters sent out recently by county prosecutors prohibiting officers from carrying large capacity magazines off duty. The governor is expected to sign the legislation as soon as practical, possibly as soon as tomorrow.
