Freedom rings loudly in New Hampshire! It is now legal to carry a concealed firearm without a license in the state of New Hampshire.
Governor Chris Sununu signed the constitutional carry bill, Senate Bill 12, into law Wednesday morning. Effective immediately, law abiding gun owners in New Hampshire will no longer be required to obtain a permit to carry concealed handguns.
“It is common-sense legislation,” Sununu said at a ceremony in the Executive Council chambers. “This is about making sure that our laws on our books are keeping people safe while remaining true to the live-free-or-die spirit.”
Many supporters cheered as the bill was signed, and the NRA has applauded the signing, urging supporters to thank Gov. Sununu and legislators who worked to get the bill passed.
I would like to personally thank Governor Sununu and all the freedom loving legislators who worked so diligently to get the bill passed!
Many supporters argued the old permit process, in which gun owners had to apply for concealed carry permits through their local police chiefs, was too lengthy and subjective.
Because of political beliefs and anti-constitutional Police Chiefs there has been an substantial abuse of the current statutes by various police departments," said Republican Rep. JR Hoell.
