New Hampshire: Permitless Carry Bill Scheduled for Hearing in the Senate Today and NRA-Backed Amendment is Needed

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Today, the state Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on legislation to allow a law-abiding person to possess a concealed firearm without a license.  This committee is scheduled to meet at 1:15 p.m. in SH 100.  Alaska, Arizona and Vermont already allow the carrying of a concealed firearm without a permit.  Wyoming recently enacted a permitless carry law that will go into effect this July and Montana now has a bill awaiting final consideration by the legislature before it heads to the Governor.  New Hampshire could be the sixth state to further extend the Second Amendment rights for its citizens. 

 

HB 330, introduced by state Representative Jennifer Coffey (R- Merrimack 6), is focused on allowing any person who can legally carry a firearm to possess a firearm openly or concealed without obtaining a license. The current license system would remain in place for those individuals who wish to carry concealed in states that recognize New Hampshire’s license.  

 

However, an important amendment is still needed.  The NRA, along with its state affiliate - Gun Owners of New Hampshire (GO-NH) - is supporting the Luther Amendment, an omnibus amendment to clarify certain provisions in HB 330.  In addition, this amendment would keep the existing law in place for individuals 18 years of age or younger to possess a firearm for hunting under certain conditions.

 

Please call and e-mail members of the Senate Judiciary Committee TODAY and urge them to support the Luther amendment to HB 330.  Contact information for the Senate Judiciary Committee can be found below.
