New Hampshire Governor signs Constitutional carry into law
A couple of weeks ago the New Hampshire House passed a Constitutional carry bill and it was sent to the Governor’s desk for his signature. I was getting a little worried because while Governor Sununu had previously stated his support for the legislation I found it odd he had not as of yet signed the bill. I was beginning to think he was having second thoughts but my worries were short-lived because today Constitutional carry became the law in the State of New Hampshire. Law abiding citizens of the State will now be allowed to carry concealed without a permit and the change took place immediately.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed legislation Wednesday removing the requirement that people get a license from local officials to carry concealed guns.
The National Rifle Association says that makes New Hampshire the 11th state — including Vermont and Maine — that doesn’t require a license or permit in most cases. Sununu’s Democratic predecessor, now U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, vetoed similar legislation multiple times.
“This is about making sure that our laws on our books are keeping people safe while remaining true to that ‘live free or die’ spirit that makes New Hampshire the great state that it is,” Sununu said before signing the bill. He was flanked by gun rights activists and fellow Republican lawmakers.
Here in New Hampshire we could always carry a firearm open without a permit but a permit was required to carry a concealed weapon but today our Second Amendment right is no longer being infringed. The Second Amendment is our concealed carry permit.
