N.H. “Permitless” Carry Bill Heads To Governor

posted on February 11, 2017

A measure deregulating the concealed-carry process in New Hampshire by no longer requiring law-abiding citizens to obtain a permit before carrying a firearm for self-defense has passed both the state House and Senate and is headed for the governor’s desk.

SB 12, the NRA-backed “permitless” carry bill, recently passed the house by a 200-97 vote, drawing praise from NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. “Despite the best efforts of Michael Bloomberg-funded groups to distort the truth, the New Hampshire legislature stood strong for freedom today,” Cox said.

Similar legislation has been passed twice before, but both bills were later vetoed by the governor. This measure will next be considered by Gov. Chris Sununu, who has voiced his support for the measure in the past.

“It’s encouraging to see the legislature stand up for the rights of New Hampshire residents,” Cox said. “We hope the governor will sign this measure and give New Hampshire residents the freedoms they deserve.”
