New Hampshire: NRA-Endorsed Suppressor Legislation Passes Final Concurrence Vote

Yesterday, House Bill 500 passed its final concurrence vote in the House of Representatives.  Additionally, Senate Bill 336 was amended and passed by the House.  HB 500 will now go to Governor Hassan for her consideration and SB 336 will go back to the Senate for final concurrence.  Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact Governor Hassan and politely urge her to sign HB 500!


House Bill 500, sponsored by Representative John Burt (R-39), would repeal the current ban on the use of legal firearm sound suppressors while hunting.  Sound suppressors attached to firearms are an additional tool available to help protect the shooter’s hearing, reduce noise complaints from surrounding residents, as well as increase accuracy and safety.  If signed into law, New Hampshire would be the 40th state to allow the use of suppressors while hunting.

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.

Thank you to everyone who reached out to their state legislators in support of these bills.  Also, thank you to all the legislators who supported these bills and worked tirelessly to ensure they passed.  Your NRA-ILA will continue to update you on the status of HB 500 and SB 336.
