New Hampshire Gun Owners No Longer Require a License to Carry a Concealed Firearm


In the state of New Hampshire, gun owners can now legally carry a concealed, loaded pistol or revolver without a license.

Last Wednesday, Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed S.B. 12 into law, which "Allows a person to carry a loaded, concealed pistol or revolver without a license unless such person is otherwise prohibited by New Hampshire statute.”

Sununu is a stalwart defender of gun rights, and believes that “SB 12 ensures New Hampshire citizens are guaranteed the fundamental right to carry a firearm in defense of themselves and their families, as prescribed by Article 2a of our state constitution,” according to a statement. His Democratic predecessor had vetoed the bill.

This was the first legislation Sununu has signed since taking office. According to the NRA, this makes New Hampshire the 12th state that doesn’t generally require a license or permit to carry a concealed firearm.

"This is about making sure that our laws on our books are keeping people safe while remaining true to that ‘live free or die’ spirit that makes New Hampshire the great state that it is," Sununu said.

“Live free or die” is the state motto of New Hampshire.
