Yesterday, September 16, the New Hampshire Legislature reconvened to
debate overriding the legislative vetoes made by Governor Maggie Hassan
during the 2015 legislative session.
After a short debate, the Senate decided to sustain the Governor’s veto of Constitutional/Permitless Carry legislation, Senate Bill 116. With a final vote of 13-10, the Senate effectively killed the bill.
As previously reported,
SB 116 (R-Bradley) was vetoed by the Governor this past summer. This
critical legislation would have allowed all New Hampshire residents, who
are not prohibited by law from possessing a firearm, the right to carry
concealed without obtaining a concealed firearm license.
