New Hampshire: Right to Carry Reform Legislation Scheduled in Committee Next Week

Please contact members of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee today in support of SB 116

Next Tuesday, March 24, the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee will hold a committee hearing on Senate Bill 116 (Bradley-3) at 10:00 a.m. in LOB 206-208.  As previously reported, this NRA-backed Right to Carry reform bill would expand your Second Amendment rights in the Granite State by:

  • Repealing the existing law requiring a person to have a concealed firearm license in order to carry concealed (permitless carry).
  • Increasing the length of time a license to carry is valid.
  • Directing the State Police to enter into reciprocity agreements with other states to recognize their licenses.
  • Leaving the current carry permitting system intact for those who wish to participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements when traveling to other states.

In New Hampshire, existing state law recognizes the right of any citizen who can legally own/possess a firearm to carry it openly, either loaded or unloaded, anywhere in the state.  Since law-abiding citizens can carry a firearm openly without a permit, they should not become criminals just because they put on a jacket or place their firearm in their purse or briefcase.  Law-abiding citizens do not suddenly turn into violent criminals just because they choose to conceal their firearm. 

Please use the information provided below to contact members of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee today and urge them to vote in support of Senate Bill 116.
