N.H. “Permitless” Carry Measure Passes Out Of Senate Committee

posted on January 12, 2017

New Hampshire’s Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday successfully voted the proposed “permitless” carry bill out of committee. Senate Bill 12 will now go to the Senate floor for consideration.

SB 12, sponsored by Republican state Sen. Jeb Bradley, would repeal the license requirement to carry a concealed handgun, unless a person is otherwise prohibited. For those who choose to obtain carry licenses, which will still be available, SB 12 would also increase the length of time in which a license is valid.

New Hampshire lawmakers passed similar “permitless” carry bills each of the last two years, but both were vetoed by then-Gov. Maggie Hassan. With Hassan gone, this might be the year to get the law on the books.
