New Hampshire Permitless Carry Bill Passes Senate

posted on January 21, 2017

The New Hampshire State Senate voted along party lines Thursday to send Senate Bill 12—the constitutional, or permitless, carry bill—to the House for approval. This same bill has been passed twice over the past years by both the House and Senate (in the form of Senate Bill 116 and House Bill 585) before being vetoed by former Gov. Maggie Hassan. 

Current New Hampshire law recognizes the right of law-abiding citizens to carry firearms openly anywhere in the state not prohibited by law. However, if a firearm becomes concealed for any reason—covered by a coat, put in a purse, etc.—the gun owner would then need a concealed-carry license to remain legal. SB 12, sponsored by Sen. Jeb Bradley (R) would extend permitless open carry to permitless concealed carry to negate this.
