New Hampshire: Senate Passes Concealed Carry Reform Legislation

Yesterday, Senate Bill 336, recently amended concealed carry reform legislation, was approved by the Senate with a vote of 14-10.  The measure will now move to the House of Representatives for consideration.  Please contact your state Representative and politely urge them to support SB 336!  Please click the "Take Action" button below to contact your state Representative! 

Over the last few years, an increasing number of law-abiding gun owners in New Hampshire have been denied the right to carry a concealed firearm outside of their home for subjective reasons.  SB 336, sponsored by Senator Sam Cataldo (R-Farmington), makes necessary revisions to New Hampshire’s current statute by amending the “suitable person” provision to clarify that any individual who is not prohibited from owning and possessing a firearm under federal or state law shall be issued a concealed carry license.  If an individual can lawfully own and possess a firearm, they should not be prohibited from exercising their fundamental right to self-defense outside of their home. 

​Additionally, SB336 would extend the term of the carry license from four to five years.
