Speaking Out On New Hampshire Carry

posted on May 29, 2015

Democrat New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan insists that the majority of Granite Staters support the current law allowing the decision of who gets a concealed-carry permit and who doesn’t to be left to the discretion of the police chief.

She has already said she would veto permitless carry legislation, and points to an April poll from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling that purports more than 70 percent of residents want to keep the law as is.

The Women’s Defense League of New Hampshire begs to differ. In a poll of their own, that organization queried 833 registered voters on topics relating to the right to self-defense, permitless carry and out-of-state money being used to fund efforts to defeat carry laws in the state. That organization’s tally showed starkly different results—not only did 71 percent oppose the current concealed-carry law, but across the board the voters were solidly pro-Second Amendment.
