New Hampshire close to enacting constitutional carry?

New Hampshire close to enacting constitutional carry?

[Ed. – Emphasis in original.]

The legislation I refer to is Senate Bill 116 that was recently introduced by Republican Senators Jeb Bradley and David Boutin.

The bill is rather direct and concise in its objective and intent.

This bill:

I. Increases the length of time for which a license to carry a pistol or revolver is valid.

II. Allows a person to carry a loaded, concealed pistol or revolver without a license unless such person is otherwise prohibited by New Hampshire statute.

III. Requires the director of the division of state police to negotiate and enter into agreements with other jurisdictions to recognize in those jurisdictions the validity of the license to carry issued in this state.

IV. Repeals the requirement to obtain a license to carry a concealed pistol or revolver.

The bill expressly addresses this in stating: No photograph or fingerprint shall be required or used as a basis to grant, deny, or renew a license to carry for a resident or nonresident.

To be clear, even the simplified state preempted form would be UNNECESSARY to utilize your right to keep and bear arms within New Hampshire, Parts II and IV pretty much ensure that is  understood by everyone.
