The Debate About Carrying Concealed Firearms In N.H.


With a new bill addressing how Granite Staters are allowed to carry a concealed gun, many are tapping in to the perennial conversation about concealed versus open carry. And while the right to bear arms is well-established in New Hampshire, there’s still debate about the who, where, and how when it comes to firearms.


  • JR Hoell – Republican state representative from Dunbarton and board member of the New Hampshire Firearms Coalition. He co-sponsored SB116.
  • Steve Shurtleff - Democratic House Minority Leader from Penacook.
  • Adam Winkler – professor of Constitutional Law at the University of California, Los Angeles and author of "Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America."
