N.H. lawmakers pass ‘concealed carry’ measure
A bill designed to make it easier for New Hampshire residents to carry a concealed weapon easily passed a major legislative hurdle on Thursday on its path to become a state law.
Senate Bill 12-FN, which would repeal the strict license requirements to carry a concealed weapon, was approved by the N.H. House of Representatives yesterday morning on a roll call vote.
The representatives voted 200 to 97 in favor of the bill. A number representatives were absent because of a powerful snowstorm.
Republican Governor Chris Sununu has already signaled that he would sign the measure into a state law once it is sent to his desk for consideration.
Last month, Gov. Sununu said in a statement, “I am pleased that the State Senate today voted to advance common sense legislation in support of a citizen’s fundamental right to carry a firearm, joining neighboring states throughout the region and across the country.”
The N.H. Senate passed the SB 12-FN last month by voting 13-10 in favor of the measure.
Previously, state lawmakers made multiple efforts to pass the measure, but every time it was vetoed by former Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan.
