• N.H. eliminates license requirement to carry concealed gun, effective immediately



    By ALLIE MORRIS

    It’s now legal to carry a concealed loaded gun in New Hampshire without a license.

    Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed so-called “constitutional carry” into law Wednesday morning, his first signing since taking office in early January.

    “It is common-sense legislation,” he said during 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.”

    The signing marked a GOP victory a week after the bruising defeat of right-to-work, one of Sununu’s top priorities.

    Republicans in control of the Legislature have sought to repeal the licensing requirement in recent years, but Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan consistently vetoed the change, saying it threatened to weaken public safety.

      Ray Buckley said in a statement. “New Hampshire has imminent issues that need the Governor's attention, but further relaxing the state's notoriously lax gun laws is not one of them.”

      Typical dem0crat statement.(bold emphasis is mine)

      Anyone know if this applies to non residents in a vehicle, etc? Is it like ME, anything goes? I won't renew my NR, if so. Couldn't find it in the article.

      GOALs FB post on the topic answered this question a few times (it was asked a few times by FB followers) and GOAL seems to think so.
      Maine isn't quite 'anything goes' - Maine is a Duty to Inform state, NH is not. Other than that, Keep Calm and Carry On!

      Yes, effective immediately as long as you're not a prohibited person.

      The ban on being able to buy a pistol out of state is due to federal law. Long guns can be purchased at FFLs however, many (sane) FFLs refuse to do business with residents from states behind the iron curtain due to the complexity of the laws. Perhaps though you could drive up on an election day, click your heals together 3 times and say I live in NH. That is good enough to be able to vote so it seems to me on that day you ought to be able to buy a gun ;)
