Last week, the New Hampshire Supreme Court handed down an important ruling relating to the definition of a ‘loaded pistol or revolver’ [under RSA 159:4 (2002)].

The state Supreme Court ruled, “that in order for a pistol or revolver to be considered “loaded” within the meaning of RSA 159:4, the pistol or revolver must contain a cartridge in the chamber or must contain a magazine, cylinder, or clip inserted in or otherwise adjoined to the firearm such that the firearm can be discharged through normal operation.”

This is just one more important ruling to protect gun owners from overzealous individuals trying to use every means to misinterpret the law and make gun owners criminals.
