Hassan likely to veto bill removing concealed gun license

The Associated Press

CONCORD — New Hampshire's gun laws are likely to be the center of debate next week as Gov. Maggie Hassan takes action on a bill that would make it easier for people to carry hidden guns. She plans to veto it.

The legislation passed the Republican-led Legislature earlier this year and landed on Hassan's desk this week, giving her five days to act.

Existing state law allows anyone who can legally purchase a gun to carry it openly. But to carry a gun concealed, the person must receive a license from local law enforcement or town officials. This bill would repeal the licensing requirement, effectively allowing anyone who can own a gun under state and federal law to carry it hidden, such as in a purse or beneath a jacket.
