10-2-6533 In Re Appeal of the Denial of the Application for Z.L., App. Div. (Kennedy, J.A.D.) (12 pp.)
We clarify that an application for a firearms purchaser identification card and handgun permits may be denied in circumstances where the applicant had been accused of assaulting his wife, but acquitted at trial, and where the police responded to his home on several occasions thereafter to address domestic dispute complaints brought by his wife. The application was properly denied pursuant to N.J.S.A. 2C:58-3(c)(5).
