I respectfully disagree.  I've been to several airgun stores in Bergen County and they sell very powerful airguns, many more expensive then real rifles,  without any permits all day long.

They are likely "airsoft" guns that look like ARs-AKs-and other real Firearms, ALL repeat ALL .177-.22-.25 Lead Pellet or Steel BB firing rifles or pistols wether they are pump CO2 or compressed air are considered Firearms in NJ and require a NJ FID (NJ Firearms purchaser card) for rifles or a Pistol permit for Handgun style. There are no exceptions to this rule. If you purchase from out of state this still applies. Airsoft (plastic BB) and paintball gins are exempt. been this way since 68 but kids with BB guns (like me) weren't harassed about it till the 90's
