CONCORD - The vote on conceal and carry that took place at the State House had a ripple effect to gun shops across the state.
For the first time, we heard Gov. Maggie Hassan confirm that despite the House's vote, she will veto the bill when it gets to her desk.
Arguments have been heard, both for and against the bill.
On numerous occasions, representatives have made mention that Vermont has been cited as the safest state in the United States and attribute it to the carry and conceal law there, where you do not need a permit.
Here in New Hampshire, gun shop owners said sales will be unaffected because the bill does not deal with purchasing firearms.
But they also said they feel Hassan's veto will go directly against the state's motto.
“It certainly makes a loud statement," said Nicholas D’Augustine owner of Milford Firearms. "Live free or die, but don’t make me a criminal for putting my jacket over my firearm.”
The bill is expected to get to Hassan's desk in about a month.
