Constitutional carry is coming to New Hampshire
The 2016 election was a bit of an oddity in New Hampshire because while we sent all Democrats to Washington the Republicans won big time on the state level. In addition to winning the governor’s seat for the first time in 12 years the Republicans have a big majority in the House and a majority in the Senate and Executive Council.
The ramifications are already being felt with a balanced budget that includes no new taxes or fees, and as usual no sales or income tax, while at the same time spending more money on education, healthcare, nursing homes, and the opiate crisis.
And now the State House has approved constitutional carry and it is headed to Governor Sununu’ desk for his signature. Here is more:
New Hampshire is on the verge of repealing a state law that requires Granite Staters to have a permit to carry a concealed firearm.
The House of Representatives voted 200 to 97 Thursday to pass Senate Bill 12, which previously passed the state Senate.
Gov. Chris Sununu, R-Newfields, has endorsed such a repeal. The legislation now makes its way to his desk.
“Constitutional carry is now a done deal,” Rep. John Burt, R-Goffstown, said after the House vote.
