    NH lawmakers debate bill eliminating gun permits

    CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire lawmakers are debating a bill that would allow residents and out-of-staters alike to carry weapons without having to get a permit.

    The proposal applies to weapons carried openly or concealed, loaded or unloaded. It would eliminate the need for out-of-state residents to get permits to carry weapons here.

    New Hampshire state police say the state would lose about $750,000 per year in permit fees if the bill passes.

    Bill sponsors say permit requirements clash with constitutional rights to carry weapons.

    Sure hope it passes. They have the perfect example to answer the naysayers pretty close by. Vermont.

    Apparently the NH police feel like "rights" should be taxed. WRONG!

    I can't imagine, especially in these hard times, a state passing up that much loot.

    It only cost a NH resident 10.00 (10 bucks) to get the permit for 4 years. That goes to show you how many of us in NH carry concealed.

    Those NH state police have some very creative math. Where does that $750,000 figure come from?

    According to 2009 information published here, 13K+ NON RESIDENT permits (at $100 a pop) resulted in $475,713 revenue. Where'd the other $900,000 go? [Added: just saw that cost went from $20 to $100 in July 09] And how does that jibe with the $750,000 quoted in the news item? [fewer non resident permits than 09?]

    Class3NH, your $10 stays with the local sheriff, so it's probably not part of that lost revenue the article mentions, nor does it help to count how many permit holders there are in NH.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    What are the realistic odds that this would pass and signed into law.

    If the permit system is completely eliminated, NH residents will lose reciprocity. The NH resident could get a FL or UT permit, but that wouldn't help in states that recognize permits from state X only for residents of state X.

    I don't think it will pass either, and yes, we'd lose reciprocy, so if it went to a vote of the People, I don't think it would pass, but we'll see.
    Personally, I have the Utah and Maine permit, and that's all I need for now. I'm not going to line other states like Massachusetts at 100.00 a YEAR for a License to Carry
    SD...I'm sure the figures may allow for Clerical/enforcment/ and nonres fees......maybe that's where the money comes from.........Yes, we went from 20.00 to 100.00 because of other state charging higher fees (like Mass who charges 100.00 for ONE year)
