What do references for NJ firearms cards get asked? Do the references get called, need to write a letter, fill out a form, or is there something else required?

Thanks Alan

In my case they were mailed a letter with a form on which they needed to check off the boxes & return to the local PD. The checklist contained the typical questions asked on the app itself... Has this person been convicted of a crime? etc...

Even though I had to give references with each purchase I made in NJ they were only contacted the first time. IIRC, they were called and asked how long they knew me, if I was responsible, level-headed, sane, etc. Both references said the call only took a minute or two. Of course, that was back in about 1995 so it may be done by mail now.

The usual questions are asked. In my town they now call the references too asking the same questions you answered in the letter.:crazy:
