Constitutional Carry bill still topic of debate in NH


CONCORD - The so-called "Constitutional Carry" bill is back for discussion in the N.H. House.

"I have bad knees and am essentially disabled," said Anthony Nino Junior, who supports the bill, "People look at me as a target like I have a ‘mug me' sign on my back. I need to carry a weapon so I feel safe."

Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley said his bill should make the state safer, but not all people are convinced.

"Anyone, any one person could be concealing a weapon," said Amy Moore of Mom's Demand Action. "I have a seven year old daughter, do you know what kind of worry that inflicts on me as a mother.

"I tell my daughter if she is in trouble to look for a police officer, this negates that if everyone is carrying and takes it upon themselves to look out for public safety and even some police officers don't want it."

The House has to get through all testimony before they can take a vote and possibly make this bill into law.

For now it remains a hot topic of debate at the House.
