still true. However, the NJ law does not consider ones that have a polymer core as hollow points, such as Hornady Critical Defense.

Hello and God bless you @Robert_G3. Welcome to the family. If you have your card it means you qualified at least once. They are good for one year. You will get it again. :+1::+1:

Hi, and thanks for the quick reply welcome…

I haven’t completed a qualification from our local Sheriff Dept yet. The LEOSA ID card I have now was issued via the Department of The Army, which verifies my retired status as a former
Army CID Agent. They informed us we will need to go through the qualification as you indicated, at which time the LEO will issue us a qual card to keep with us. Our local LEO qual is similar
to what you went through. I just need to make it happen. I’m glad I saw your post.

Thanks

I wish that were true. But I seem to recall in earlier conversations that folks can (and have) gotten hemmed up when a state refuses to acknowledge a LEOSA card, or when a local LEO has no idea what it is. Even when you’re within your rights, it can still ruin a vacation.

Yeah…but if we go this route we find out there’s no single document that can gives us the right to do things allowed by this document.

Congratulations LEOSA! Great job on your achievement. I think all law enforcement (retired) should be able to carry, no matter what state. Anyway, congrats and be safe.

Agreed.
But also, I think any adult should, by default, be able to carry, no matter which state they’re in.

Also agreed, but I figured if not citizens then definitely law enforcement. They really don’t have any argument about CC, unless a person is a criminal, your right, all legal adults should have their 2A rights in all of America. Good point!

It’s a technicality and I’ve never seen it enforced but your LEOSA permit still does not allow you to carry in school zones ( it extends thousand feet away from actual school property) for the states in which you may be traveling. I was at the concealed carry convention some years ago and it was a big topic of discussion amongst retired law-enforcement officers and NRA attorneys at the seminar. All part of the “ gun free school act”

I am aware that we have to be alert of those catch 22s. There are always different laws and ordinances depending on which state you are in.

Very true. It’s my understanding that Republicans have tried to repeal it over the years but haven’t had enough votes. If I understand the law correctly it was originally put in place to add additional penalties for drug dealers caught on or around school property with firearms. I remember one of the slides they showed at the seminar was a map of the city of Cleveland and, when you included the thousand foot zone around each school property in the city, one was unable to drive through the city without coming into/ crossing multiple school zones.

I wasn’t aware that there was a specific qualification course for that. My understanding is that as long as you maintain your agencies qualification course in retirement you fall under that act, am I wrong?
