Yesterday, the New Hampshire Senate sent three pro-gun bills, House Bill 194, House Bill 330 and House Bill 334 to interim study, therefore New Hampshire gun owners now need to focus on NRA-backed House Bill 536.
House Bill 536 (Hoell-R), has already passed in the state House by a 180 to 144 vote and is now pending consideration in the state Senate. This Right-to-Carry legislation would repeal the existing law that requires a person to have a concealed firearm license in order to carry concealed. However, HB 536 would not eliminate the current carry permitting system, which will still be required for those who wish to 1) participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements when traveling to other states, 2) be protected in gun-free school zones and 3) be exempt from NICS when purchasing a firearm.
Please call AND e-mail your state Senator and urge him or her to SUPPORT HB 536. Contact information or help identifying your state Senator can be found here.
Please forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners. Ask them to contact their state Senator and urge him or her to support “permitless carry” in New Hampshire.
