New Jersey has severe penalties for the unlawful possession of weapons. For example:
- The unlawful possession of a machine gun, or a device that could be adapted for use as a machine gun, is a second-degree crime
- The unlawful possession of a handgun is a second-degree crime, unless the handgun in question is an air gun, spring gun or similar device, in which case it is a third-degree crime.
- The unlawful possession of a rifle or shotgun is a third-degree crime
- The unlawful possession of any other weapon is a fourth-degree crime
The unlawful possession of a machine gun, a handgun or a rifle or shotgun are subject to New Jersey’s Graves Act, which provides for mandatory imprisonment and a minimum term of parole ineligibility. In many cases, prosecutors have substantial leverage as a result of these harsh penalties.
