This morning the Governor of New Hampshire signed a law that basically recognizes the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution as your permit to carry a firearm. The bill was nick-named “constitutional carry” and the name says it all.
From today’s online Concord Monitor;
Under the new law, anyone who can legally possess a gun under state and federal law can carry it concealed in a purse, car or briefcase without a license. The licensing process will remain in place so people who want to carry outside state lines can get the necessary paperwork.
Federal law bars felons, drug users, fugitives and people convicted of certain domestic violence crimes from possessing guns. The new law took effect immediately.
New Hampshire follows a number of other states that have recently eliminated licensing requirements, including Idaho, Mississippi and neighboring Maine.
