Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

New Hampshire Passes Constitutional Carry

New Hampshire has become the latest state to sign constitutional carry into state law.

Gov. Chris Sununu signed the law and it goes into effect immediately.

The law repeals the license requirement to carry a concealed pistol or revolver, unless they’re already prohibited from doing so.

For residents who do want to obtain a license, the new law will increase the length of time a license is valid from four to five years.

Before the law, in New Hampshire, citizens had the right to legally carry or possess a firearm openly, either loaded or unloaded, NRA-ILA is reporting.

The new law extends permit-less open carry to concealed carry, allowing law-abiding gun owners to carry in whatever way suits their needs to protect themselves and their loved ones.

New Hampshire’s neighboring states of Vermont and Maine do not require permits to carry concealed handguns.

In arguing in favor of the bill earlier this month, state House Majority Leader Dick Hinch argued the measure “is a reasonable and long overdue measure that provides clarity, will enhance freedom for our responsible firearms community. And will be an overall deterrent to crime.”

“This is a commonsense legislation that allows people to protect themselves and their loved ones by exercising the second amendment rights,” Hinch added.

The new law did have some detractors:

State House Democratic Leader Steve Shurtleff, a retired U.S. deputy marshal, argued that the current law works.

“A concealed carry law has been in place for 94 years. It is often cited in FBI statistics as one of the safest states in the nation,” Shurtleff said.

And he raised alarms, saying “if this law is repealed individuals who should not be carrying a concealed weapon such as those suffering from dementia and alcoholism will be permitted to carry a concealed weapon.”

The new law is effective immediately.
