CONCORD - New Hampshire lawmakers voted to repeal a law that requires people to have a permit to carry a concealed gun in the Granite State.
S.B. 116 passed in the state Senate in February. It was expected to be a shoo-in in the Republican-led house, and it did pass there Wednesday with a 212 to 150 vote. Gov. Hassan has said she'll veto it.
The proposed law doesn't apply to all weapons. It's only for pistols and revolvers, loaded or unloaded. The guns can be concealed in your vehicle or on your person - under clothing or in a purse for example.
The proposed law would not apply to anyone legally prohibited from carrying a gun for any other reason. A felony on a person's record is a prime example.
Other states with so-called constitutional carry laws include Vermont. Alaska allowed concealed carry without permits in 2003, Arizona in 2010, Wyoming in 2011 and Arkansas 2013. Kentucky just passed the law a few months ago.
Maine, Idaho, Colorado and Kansas are some other states moving toward no permits for concealed guns.
