    Should New Hampshire eliminate permit requirements for handguns?

    — Granite Staters would no longer need permits to carry concealed handguns under a bill considered this week by N.H. Senate Judiciary Committee.
    Sen. Joe Kenney of Wakefield supports the legislation, saying citizens today need to take more responsibility for the safety, given the threat of terrorism. Opponents of the bill say making it easier for people to carry hidden guns would not make them feel safer.
    This week's question is: Should New Hampshire eliminate permit requirements for handguns?

    Question to these folks: Do you feel more safe, less safe, or the same when visiting Vermont? If the answer is more safe or the same: What makes Vermont residents more responsible for carrying concealed weapons versus New Hampshire residents?

    Of course, there is no good answer. I love it when logic slays the anti argument. :D

    As long as New Hampshire retains a voluntary permit for the purposes of reciprocity, I'm all for this legislation. What would be even better is if they designated a driving license as a carry license. Even though it will be true by default, the official definition would be handy for reciprocity purposes.

    Check your bank records, Robert. Your amount and duration are off a little bit.

    I don't know, Cindy. Why don't you tell us?

    Yes, our comrades to the west in Vermont are plagued with daily massacres.

    Maybe if you smiled and said hello to your neighbors once and awhile you wouldn't be deathly afraid of them.

    What the hell is wrong with these people?

    Why, oh why, does this come up every single time?

    I'd LOVE to go back to the "old western days" ... back when crime rates where 1/10th what they are today.

    I love it when the antis bring out the "Wild West" argument because when you look at the facts about the old west you find them making the argument for less gun control.


    Like it or not, more guns DOES equal less crime.

    N.H. permit

    What about the Non-resident permit holder? A resident permit holder from another state holding a now valid N.H. non-resident permit is now able, because of reciprosity, to legally carry in many more states than he legally can with just a resident permit. IOW, a Maine resident with a Maine permit may legally carry in 14 states, because of reciprosity. The same permitholder with a non-resident N.H. permit may legally carry in 12 ADDITIONAL states. As long as N.H. retains a voluntary non-resident permit then it could pssibly be a boon for RKBA'rs. Downside? Check (packing.org) to see how many states have reciprosity with Vt. as opposed to N.H.(Vt. requires no permit). In a perfect world you should need no permit, in the real world however, with no permit system in place you lose most of your reciprosity. A N.H. resident with a valid permit may legally carry in 14 other states because of reciprosity, do away with the permit system and he will lose 10 of them. Backdoor gun control???

    I don't see it as backdoor gun control at all. But I too would like to see the permit retained voluntarily just for reciprocity reasons similair to AK.

    This will keep the permit system intact. The Senate version only removes the part that says (short version) "it is unlawful to carry on your person a concealed weapon with out a lisence." The house version strips every (I think) gun law off the books. People are pushing for only the Senate part which will keep the permits intact. Here is a pdf which may be out of date by now. http://dustin.o-f.com/storage/SB454_HB1271.pdf
