New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu on Wednesday signed “permitless” carry legislation that deregulates the lawful carry of firearms for self-defense in the state.
The law, which takes effect immediately, makes New Hampshire the 12th state to allow what many gun-rights proponents call constitutional carry.
“Despite the best efforts of Michael Bloomberg-funded groups to distort the truth, the New Hampshire legislature and governor stood strong for freedom," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action. “It’s encouraging to see a governor stand up for the rights of his constituents, instead of caving to the demands of an anti-gun billionaire from New York City.
“On behalf of the NRA's 5 million members, we would like to give a special thanks to Gov. Sununu, Sen. Jeb Bradley and all the statewide gun organizations and NRA members for their commitment in pushing this legislation through.”
