Court: NH concealed-carry case to get review

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A ruling by the New Hampshire Supreme Court could make it easier for out-of-state gun owners to obtain concealed-carry licenses.

The court on Thursday sided with a New Jersey man who argued that the New Hampshire Department of Safety overstepped its authority in 2013 when it enacted new rules for nonresidents applying for concealed-carry permits. Under those rules, applicants must supply proof that they have such licenses in their home states.

The court, which sent the case back to a lower court, said those rules go beyond state law, which only has two requirements — that someone has a proper purpose for the gun and is a suitable person to be licensed.

The state had argued the rules are necessary to address the lack of information about someone's suitability.
