N.H. Gov. Chris Sununu signs ‘constitutional carry’ into law

N.H. Gov. Chris Sununu signs ‘constitutional carry’ into law

New Hampshire residents will no longer require a license to carry a loaded gun in a purse or under a jacket as Gov. Chris Sununu has signed a concealed carry measure into law.

Gov. Sununu’s signature on Senate Bill 12 has enabled law-abiding New Hampshire residents to carry a firearm in the manner best suiting their needs without requiring a permit or a license in most cases.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) welcomed Gov. Sununu’s decision, saying the Granite State finally joined the growing number of states in passing and implementing constitutional carry.


Executive director Chris W. Cox, of NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action, said, “New Hampshire now joins an ever-growing number of states in passing constitutional carry. Despite the best efforts of Michael Bloomberg-funded groups to distort the truth, the New Hampshire legislature and governor stood strong for freedom.”

Similar measures were previously vetoed by Gov. Sununu’s Democratic predecessor Maggie Hassan multiple times.

New Hampshire has become the 12th state in the U.S. to allow constitutional carry, joining its northern New England neighbors like Vermont and Maine, both of which already allow constitutional carry.
