NJ2AS News reported on April 2, 2020, that under the orders of the New Jersey State Police, fingerprinting for firearms background checks would not be allowed.
NJ2AS learned that a first-time firearm owner was able to schedule their appointment late this afternoon on April 3, 2020. This individual advised they attempted to schedule an appointment last night, but received an error whenever they entered the code for firearm background checks.
Just 18 hours after we broke the story about the NJ government keeping the fingerprint system closed, it appears NJ State Police backpedaled on their position and are now allowing IndentoGO to process fingerprint appointments for firearms.
At this time, IndentoGO’s website and phone system still advertise that appointments for firearm permits are not allowed, however, this is likely an oversight given the recent successful reservations. We will confirm when their offices open on Monday.

This article will be updated as more information becomes available. Please contact us if you are now able to schedule an appointment.
