When 2017 rolled around, there were 12 states that had the Constitutional Carry Law enacted. The law states that any citizen may carry a concealed or open carry without a permit. However, as of Thursday, February 9th, another state joined these 12 states.
The New Hampshire House of Representatives met and battled for a while before coming out to a fairly shocking winning vote of 200 to 97. TFPP Contributor Kimberly Morin was tracking the progress of the Constitutional Carry in New Hampshire for a while and had a chance to interview with the Federalist papers about the event:
“The CC bill easily passed both houses over two different bills in the past two years. The bill that is on its way to the House now is the same exact bill as the original. It SHOULD easily pass through the committee and the house because there’s nothing different about the bill. Democrats are pretending that it’s something that is being-fast tracked yet it is the same bill they’ve heard testimony on 3 times in the senate to date. There is absolutely no reason that this bill should not pass. It’s time to end state-sanctioned discrimination in New Hampshire and join Maine and Vermont for Constitutional Carry.”
After a long wait, New Hampshire’s Governor Chris Sununu signed the measure and has officially placed it in effect. The passing came with celebrations from various groups across the state. What do you think about this Constitutional Carry Law? Let us know in the comments below!
