On Thursday, February 9, Senate Bill 12 will be going before the full House of Representatives for a vote. If passed, SB 12 will eliminate the requirement to obtain a permit in order to lawfully carry. Gun-control advocate Michael Bloomberg has been organizing attacks against Governor Chris Sununu for his support of SB 12. Please contact Governor Sununu and thank him for supporting this critical legislation! Also, please continue contacting your state Representative and urging them to vote in favor of SB 12.

Sponsored by Senator Jeb Bradley (R-3), SB 12 would repeal the license requirement to carry a concealed pistol or revolver, unless a person is otherwise prohibited. For those who choose to obtain licenses, SB 12 would also increase the length of time in which a license is valid.
In New Hampshire, existing state law recognizes the right of any citizen who can legally own and possess a firearm to carry it openly, either loaded or unloaded, anywhere in the state not prohibited by law. However, if a firearm becomes covered by a coat or if a woman prefers to carry a firearm for protection in her purse, he or she would need a concealed carry handgun license. The proposed legislation would extend permitless open carry to permitless concealed carry, allowing law-abiding gun owners to protect themselves and their loved ones in the manner that best suits their needs.
Don’t let Michael Bloomberg push his misguided gun-control agenda and bully the Governor for supporting your Second Amendment rights!
