Hassan Likely to Veto Senate-Backed Bill Repealing Concealed Carry Permits


The New Hampshire Senate approved a bill that would get rid of the licensing requirement to carry a concealed firearm.

Thursday's vote came down 14 to 10 along party lines, with Republicans in favor. The bill now heads to the Governor.

If signed into law this measure would make it optional to have a conceal and carry license. It would also extend license renewal from every four to every five years. 
Last year Gov. Maggie Hassan vetoed a similar measure - arguing that the existing law is “common sense and responsible.”
