NH Bill Expanding Carry Rights Will Be Considered Today

An important measure that would expand the rights of New Hampshire gun owners is set to be heard on the House floor today.

Over the last few years, an increasing number of law-abiding gun owners in New Hampshire have been denied the right to carry a concealed firearm outside of their home for subjective reasons. SB 336, sponsored by Republican state Sen. Sam Cataldo, makes needed revisions to New Hampshire’s current statute by amending the “suitable person” provision to clarify that any individual who is not prohibited from owning and possessing a firearm under federal or state law shall be issued a concealed-carry license.

If an individual can lawfully own and possess a firearm, they should not be prohibited from exercising their fundamental right to self-defense outside of their home.
