An opportunity to expand gun rights in New Hampshire will be lost unless the Senate takes immediate action on House Bill 536. This Thursday, May 17, is the deadline for the Senate passage of HB 536—so this important pro-gun legislation needs your IMMEDIATE help. Contact your state Senator TODAY in support of this legislation.Introduced by state Representative J.R. Hoell (R-13), this Right-to-Carry reform legislation would repeal the existing law that requires a person to have a concealed firearm license in order to carry concealed. However, HB 536 would not eliminate the current carry permitting system, which will still be available for those who wish to participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements when traveling to other states.In New Hampshire, existing state law allows any citizen who can legally own/possess a firearm to carry it openly, either loaded or unloaded, anywhere in the state. Since law-abiding citizens are allowed to carry a firearm openly without a permit, they should not become criminals just because they put on a jacket or place their firearm in their purse or briefcase. Law-abiding citizens do not suddenly turn into violent criminals just because they conceal their firearm. Additionally, HB 536 clarifies existing law concerning the sale of pistols and revolvers.
Please call AND e-mail your state Senator TODAY and ask him or her to remove the bill from the table and SUPPORT HB 536. Contact information or help identifying your state Senator can be found here.
