Fairfax, VA -( Yesterday, September 16, the New Hampshire Legislature reconvened to debate overriding the legislative vetoes made by Governor Maggie Hassan during the 2015 legislative session.

After a short debate, the Senate decided to sustain the Governor’s veto of Constitutional/Permitless Carry legislation, Senate Bill 116. With a final vote of 13-10, the Senate effectively killed the bill.

As previously reported, SB 116 (R-Bradley) was vetoed by the Governor this past summer. This critical legislation would have allowed all New Hampshire residents, who are not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm, the right to carry concealed without obtaining a concealed firearm license.

This bill would also have left the current carry permitting system intact for those who wish to participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements when traveling to other states. The State Police would have been required to enter into reciprocity agreements with other states to recognize their licenses.

We would like to thank you for reaching out to your legislators and for your proactive involvement as this legislation made its way through the Legislature.

    1. Kansas is constitutional carry as of 01 July 2015. Absent an unlikely act of the Legislature and Governor it will have campus carry on 01 July 2016.

    2. Kansas currently issues licenses to carry concealed handguns on a shall-issue basis with over 87,000 current permits issued. In 2015, LD 652 was a constitutional carry bill that was under consideration by the Maine legislature. It had 17 co-sponsors in the Senate and 79 co-sponsors in the House.

    3. Personally even though I live in Commiefornia-I choose to live by my heavenly Fathers laws; I will LIVE & DIE FREE! I carry whenever and however I choose! As OUR laws are GOD given not manmade. So all you gutless can die cowards!

      1. Might be, Tex, but it doesn’t help to have Massholes running all over the place.
        With Democrap Maggot Hassan as Gov. it is even worse.

    4. How about this. Give the names of those who failed to support this bill in this article then send them each an email. Remind them that they can be turned out in the next election.
