NH Senate Republican Caucus - Democrats uphold veto of concealed carry for law-abiding NH residents.

Bradley displeased by sustained veto of concealed carry bill

Concord, NH – Today the Senate voted to sustain the veto on Senate Bill 116, which would eliminate the license requirement to conceal firearms.

Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro), who was the bills prime sponsor, released the following statement after the vote.

“Removing the license requirement to conceal firearms is a common sense measure that would restore the constitutional protections available to law abiding New Hampshire citizens. The defeat of this bill means that you cannot even carry your gun in your coat or purse without a permit.  Without this bill, we are taking away the rights of New Hampshire citizens to protect themselves and their families which is not the New Hampshire way,” said Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro).


SB 116 was vetoed by the Governor in June and the Senate failed to receive the necessary 2/3 votes to override the veto. The vote was 14-10 along party lines.
