Federal law prohibits the possession of a firearm by anyone who “has been adjudicated as mental defective or has been committed to any mental institution.” However, New Hampshire keeps mental health records confidential and does not therefore provide them to the national database used to perform background checks. As one of the 3 safest states in the nation, we do not need more gun laws. I believe one of the reasons NH is so safe is because the “Bad Guys” never know who might be carrying. Those who buy a gun have a responsibility to keep it somewhere safe. You may be charged with “negligent storage of firearms” if a child gains access to your firearm and uses it in “a reckless or threatening manner.”
There have been attempts in recent years to institute a “red flag law” allowing law enforcement to confiscate weapons from those who may pose a threat to themselves or others.
Can I shoot in my backyard in NH?
By state law (RSA 207:3-a), a hunter (or anyone else, for that matter) shall not discharge a firearm or bow and arrow within 300 feet of a permanently occupied dwelling without the landowner’s permission. Doing so is a violation.
The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was tragic, but why go after Assault Rifles? He had two pistols with him. If would have used those if he had no AR-15, and if there were no guns, he would of went in there with a knife and started killing, and if not a knife, a bomb to blow up the school with.
There were no drugs found but the police decided to search the ca anyway and that found 2 antique rifles which don’t work anyway and 2 handguns which I keep in a knapsack which is legal in NH. Well the guns were confiscated because this fellow does not have a permit (though he s eligible to get one) and my oversight in not removing them from the car was reported to the Salem police. I never loan people my vehicle and had forgotten that the pistols ere there much like someone might forget that they have a car manual n the glove box
I appreciate that virtually no one wants to ever see a repeat of Sandy Hook, Columbine, or Virginia Tech. I think most of us can agree that the death of innocents is never a good thing. Now I ask those of you demanding that the law abiding be disarmed, or registered, or further inventoried the following questions: did you demand the same of law enforcement after Kent State or did you excuse that as an exceptionally bad choice made by an individual who happened to be a member of a heavily armed group? If you choose to see one law enforcement officer as an individual and refuse to hold the group of mostly law abiding law enforcement officers accountable, why do you treat civilians differently? Are you equally upset and torn up over the death of over 500 this year in Chicago alone? What exactly are you demanding be done about that? Are you aware that your government admits to having killed 775 Pakistani civilians, including 168 children, in drone attacks? Are you equally torn up over the deaths of those children even though you were not treated to a media play by play of each and every tiny casket? Are you also demanding that your government immediately disarm itself, or limit its weapon choice? If not, ask yourself why you only care about one group of dead innocents. There should be checks and balances firearm ownership not “gun control” the more people see fire arms the more comfortable they will become with them. while the (MSM) keeps saying how bad guns are they report nothing about how firearms help or deter crime. given today’s crimes (home invasion, car jacking, rape, muggings, strong arm robberies… etc you get the point. there are many articles out there that report responsible firearm actions that have stopped or curtailed a criminals action. I personally believe that restricting guns will only make things worse. If you are a criminal and you wish to obtain a firearm, a law will not prevent you from doing anything. If you wish to use a firearm for extremely illegal actions then what is to prevent you from performing more illegal actions to get this gun? No mass shooter ever said “Aw darn, I’m not allowed to own that gun, guess I’ll go find something else to use”. With that there is the point that if someone has the intent to do harm, they will use anything they have: not just a gun. Another point is by restricting guns you are taking away people’s safety. People deserve the right to have a shotgun in their house if they wish to in order to protect their family. And another threat to safety is a lack of self-protection in public. You never hear of a bank robbery in Texas because the robber is smart enough not to barge into a room full of people most likely armed. But whats to stop them from robbing a bank in California? A couple cameras? My last point is politics. You always hear “thousands die from guns in the U.S. every year”. The actual number is just over 33,000, and sometimes you will hear a politician say that number, but they neglect to acknowledge the fact that only 1/3 of them are murders. The rest are inevitable suicides and the common accident. More than 80,000 people even survive encounters with a gun. With that I leave it up to you to decide your own opinion on gun control, thank you for reading.
Even though New Hampshire doesn’t require a concealed carry permit, you can still acquire such a permit if you choose. This is sometimes useful because of “concealed carry reciprocity”—the fact that some states requiring concealed carry permits will honor those from other states.
I hear ya. I was a bit surprised and almost shocked that CT put a “Red Flag” law on the books back in 1999. I wonder why it didn’t do anything to prevent Sandy Hook? My guess is that is would have taken (a nasty word ) “work”. Easier to ignore then do the paperwork. I didn’t see anyone in CT trying to figure why and who fell down on the job, because it would have pointed at law enforcement.”Constitutional Carry” is an issue that probably does not affect too many of our citizens but unfortunately I am one on them. I had held a concealed carry pistol permit in Massachusetts since I was 18 years old (and an armed security officer) and also retained it when I moved o NH about 15 years ago. At age 56 I have never had any violation greater than a speeding ticket. I also served my country as an elite US Army Airborne Ranger and was given an honorable discharge so I would say that I have far more training in the tactical use of firearms than most any police official THE IRONY is that a firearm owner may already carry a pistol in public as long as it is visible so the only think that the new law will add is that the pistol owner may plaec the weapon in his pocket or under his belt, thus causing less alarm to the public! Nonresidents can’t buy long guns unless they are eligible to purchase them in their home state. Pistols and revolvers cannot be purchased across state lines. This is prohibited at the federal level.
Anyone who can legally possess a firearm can carry it both openly or concealed without a permit, unless they are in a location where guns are specifically restricted.
In New Hampshire, a private individual may sell a gun to another New Hampshire resident, so long as the seller either personally knows the buyer (and thereby has no reason to believe the person is prohibited possessing a gun), or the buyer has a license to carry in New Hampshire. Since private sales sometimes happen at gun shows, those who disagree with this practice often refer to it as the “gun show loophole.”Quick Quiz; Does anyone one know what happened in China the same day? If you do, then you know as well. If you don’t, then you are as blind as others. In China, same day, a man went on a 22 person stabbing spree, yet the shooting took precedence over it, and made it look like it never happened. So, if knife and homemade chemicals and make bombs, why not got after them too?
You can’t bring a firearm into a New Hampshire court and public school students can’t carry firearms on school grounds. Additional regulations limit the possession of firearms in licensed child care facilities, foster homes, and prison grounds.
A couple of years ago I lent my motor vehicle to an acquaintance who asked to drive to the Salem town hall which is abut 3 miles from my home. He indicated that he wanted to register a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, he also crossed into Lawrence to purchase some diabetic needles which can be done over the counter in that state. Apparently someone in the store saw him opening the needles in the auto and thought that there might be drug usage gong on so they called th police.Look at Canada. They have high gun restrictions, and ever since they put them in place, beatings and stabbings have skyrocketed. Also as a little “heads up,” since the minor ban of guns during Clinton’s years, beating and stabbing deaths are eight times more than shooting deaths.
Assault weapons are semi-automatic rifles that can accept detachable magazines and allow for accessories like lights and scopes to be mounted easily. A federal ban on private ownership of semi-automatic firearms classified as “assault weapons” expired in September 2004. The use of such weapons in high-profile mass shootings, such as the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting, has made them a particular area of concern for gun control advocates.In New Hampshire, the right to bear arms is protected by the state’s Constitution. You don’t need a license to purchase a firearm in New Hampshire. You also are not required to register your gun.
It’s been proven, repeatedly, in cities like Chicago, Detroit, New York, and DC that strict gun laws do not create crime free zones. Gun control is clearly not the answer to preventing these types of tragedies. If we want to stop the killings, then we need to be honest with ourselves about our real goals and then spend the time to look harder and more thoroughly at those who choose to kill instead of their weapons.I ask these questions because if you aren’t equally appalled by all of these events, then it is not the death of innocents that bothers you and you need to be very honest about that. Are you looking for a law that takes away all of your worries that bad things might happen to you and yours? There is no such law. Bad things happen to good people every day. Every day somebody’s child dies in a way that in hindsight appears absolutely avoidable. That doesn’t make those deaths ok, but “doing something” if it is the wrong something, doesn’t stop them either.
There is no minimum age in New Hampshire for possessing a firearm. However, only a parent, grandparent or legal guardian can transfer a gun to someone under 18.
You speak of how we can avoid having nut jobs getting hold of guns. First, most if not all the recent carnage with guns were by known insane persons. The Virginia Tech. shooter, the Gifford shooter, the Colorado movie theater shooter and the Newtown shooter all had left very clear signals of mental illness including those involved in treating them. The mother of Newtown shooter could not get help in CT. due to privacy laws. People that had known those shooters, both friends and relatives had been forced into helplessness by laws and regulations preventing them to take action well before the catastrophic events.We have to make changes to those laws that keep potential mass murderers insulated. As a matter of fact, the drug addict who worked in the Exeter Hospital and who caused all those Hep-c cases was also protected by the same laws of privacy that precluded the employer from accessing information from his past employment that would have resulted in him not getting that job. The laws in our country have become topsy-turvy. They assume law-abiding citizens criminals while letting the criminals go free.On the other hand, when some nutjob walks into our local elementary school with an AR15, I frankly don’t give a damn about your rights. I’m cool with you having a gun, but how do we keep one out of that guy’s hands? That’s the real issue.
Are AR 15 legal in NH?
Last updated January 5, 2023 . New Hampshire has no law regulating assault weapons.
Second Amendment can not be abridged by rule making in the Congress because those rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness are endowed by the creator and not another man or group of men. The only way it can be changed is through a Constitutional amendment. Everything else is illegal, according to our constitution.
Now, if you are equally appalled by each and every unnecessary death and you wish to ban all guns, some more guns, or some different people from having guns as your solution to some, most, or all of these deaths I ask you this: Are you well versed in the current laws in your town? Are you well versed in the gun laws on the books at the time and location of each of the above mentioned tragedies? If so, then you are clearly well aware that each of those killers broke multiple laws: gun laws, homicide laws, federal laws, local laws. What “one more law” do you think is suddenly going to stop a criminal who does not care about the current laws? Do you think there is actually any law that can eliminate the technology of gunpowder? How exactly is this path of “solution” actually going to stop the death of innocents?
I certainly think we should try to keep guns out of the hands of mentally unstable teenagers, who have been the perpetrators of most of these heavily publicized school shoot ups. But we must keep in mind that that the 2nd Amendment is there because an armed citizenry serves as a bulwark against tyrannical government. The dozens murdered in the school massacres must be weighed against the millions murdered by their own governments during the 20th century because they had no means to defend themselves from government thugs. New Hampshire has, I believe, the laxest gun laws in the northeast. Yet we have less violence per capita than states with strong gun control laws like New York. So I don’t see New Hampshire’s gun laws as a problem that needs fixing.
So, I am actually one those people tat would benefit from the law which states that “anyone who is eligible to purchase a firearm also has the right to carry it concealed
With the horrible tragedy of Sandy Hook Elementary comes another push for one group of citizens to hurry up and “do something”. It’s easy to get caught up in all of the emotional pleas, unproven claims, and outright falsehoods being screamed at lightning speed over the Internet but shouldn’t we really take a moment to reflect on the truth of the tragedies and the myriad of gun laws currently on the books before we rush to fix the wrong problem? Registration is the first step to government confiscation of our firearms. I solidly agree with the people posting in this thread. In Texas college student can conceal and carry. I don’ t think this goes far enough,, first graders should be able to carry firearms to school, I see nothing in the second amendment which forbids this, We license drivers, register cars. do background checks on plumbers and nurses before they can be licensed but it is our God given right for any insane, mentally defective psychopath to own a semiautomatic rifle with cop killer bullets. You guys are nuts.. Crawl back into your crazy hole Also, if you take the Second Amendment in the context in which it was written, I also agree with it in that people should be able to arm themselves against the possibility of the government becoming too oppressive. And to everyone who thinks the very idea of standing up to the government is ridiculous, go talk to someone from Syria.I appealed the ruling in court and should have prevailed. The NH general law states that”Anyone who has not been convicted of a felony or does not have an active restraining pending SHALL be issued a permit to carry”
Bump stocks are a type of gun stock that make a semi-automatic rifle shoot rapidly, more like an automatic weapon. As of March 2019, the federal government has banned bump stocks for most civilians. This change was made in the wake of the much-publicized Las Vegas shooting in 2017, in which the shooter used a bump stock.
I grew up in Connecticut. I have worked in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Florida, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts all in the last 5 years. I live in New Hampshire for a reason. “Live Free or Die”. Though government is involved in some aspects of my daily life, compared to every other state I listed government interference here is very limited or appears more out of site. Because of this, lifestyle is more calm and relaxed.
I am not in favour of any gun control legislation. I am however in favour of stand your ground, and castle laws which permit citizens to use deadly force when they are threatened in the sanctity of their own homes. I fully support the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution, and I vote.
It’s way past time for some reason on the issue of gun control. We have to stop this cycle of knee-jerk reactions to every gun-related disaster, and dominance by whoever can djin up the most emotional damage at the moment.I am not a gun owner. New Hampshire is an open carry and must issue gun license state. Crime in this state is also extremely low comparatively to most states. I do not think this is a coincidence. The gun laws as they exist are just fine and do not infringe on anyone’s freedom. A limit or restriction on our current rights to guns is the only infringement on personal freedom.
First of all, although I’ve never owned a weapon of my own, I fully support the average American citizen’s right to own one. Most everyone I know has at least one gun, and keeps and uses them responsibly. I know many people who hunt, and some people whose family might go hungry at time if they didn’t.New Hampshire does not require a waiting period before finalizing a gun purchase. In accordance with federal law, licensed firearm dealers must conduct a background check on anyone who purchases a gun. For handgun sales, these checks are conducted by the New Hampshire Department of Safety. Long gun sale background checks are conducted by the FBI. Both checks are usually conducted on the spot but can take anywhere from an hour up to several days.Better yet, let’s ban cancer! If we ban cancer, no one will get it anymore and no one will ever be able to die from it! Oh wait, that won’t stop cancer. Much like banning guns and taking away our rights will stop criminals from getting guns illegally and committing crimes.
Is the AR 15 legal in NH?
New Hampshire has no law regulating assault weapons.
Second Amendment is there not for hunting deer or target shooting. It is there to make citizens as effective in terms of arms as the soldiers in the government. In those days, if you had owned a musket with a bayonet you would have been as well armed as a soldier in the British government, except of course the early cannons.Always call ahead to confirm show times, especially when traveling long distances.

In 2017, the legislature lengthened the period of validity of a New Hampshire concealed weapons license from four to five years from the date of issue. “When required, license renewal shall take place within the month of the fifth anniversary of the license holder’s date of birth following the date of issuance.”Gun violence is a complex problem that must be met with a range of solutions. We’re fighting every day for the laws, policies, and programs proven to save lives and bring an end to this uniquely American epidemic.

See the New Hampshire Department of Safety web site for a list of the specific states with which New Hampshire has reciprocity.Giffords Law Center works in all 50 states to change policies and challenge injustice.

Even if she had a criminal record, Tibbetts could have purchased one or multiple weapons from an unlicensed dealer at a gun show such as the one in Manchester. Only Federal Firearm Licensed dealers are required to conduct a background check to determine whether a person is on a list of people prohibited from buying guns. Reasons a person would be on the list include having been convicted of a felony, being under a domestic violence restraining order or being mentally incompetent.
Associate Attorney General Jane Young didn’t say how officials discovered Tibbetts purchased the weapon at that gun show or whether the dealer from whom she purchased it was licensed. Ballistics tests have not been completed on the Ruger or the 9 mm pistol found in Mutrie’s home to determine which weapon he used to kill Maloney and wound the other officers who came to his house to execute a drug-related search warrant.According to New Hampshire law enforcement officials, Brittany Tibbetts bought a Ruger .357 revolver at a gun show in Manchester during the weekend of Jan. 14-15.
The N.H. attorney general’s office did not say how much it cost Tibbetts to buy the revolver at the Manchester gun show. According to Guninternational.com, the cost for the online sale of a Ruger .357 ranges from $450 to $835.
The National Rifle Association, the nation’s largest pro-gun organization, has opposed legislative attempts to close the gun show loophole because, the organization says, unlicensed or “kitchen table” dealers are a minority of sellers at gun shows and they are following the law.New Hampshire is one of 39 states that have a gun show “loophole,” which means there is no federally mandated background check requirement for any weapon sold by an unlicensed dealer. The only identification required must show the purchaser is a state resident and over age 21. If FFL dealers sell at gun shows, they still must conduct a background check.
The law does not cover “firearms transfers” by unlicensed gun dealers, which is considered a private sale. Eleven states have either closed down all firearms or handgun sales at gun shows since the Brady law went into effect. According to a recent report on gun show sales by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, “about 40 percent of gun sales nationwide are made without a background check to see if the purchaser is a criminal or otherwise prohibited from buying guns. In effect, we have two gun markets: A regulated one, where buyers are checked to see if they can legally buy guns, and an unregulated one, where they are not.”
Licensed firearm dealers have been required to use the National Instant Background Check System since 1994, when the Brady Handgun Violence Protection Act was enacted. The law was named after James Brady, the press secretary to President Ronald Reagan. In March 1981, Brady and Reagan were shot by attempted assassin John Hinkley Jr., who had been treated for severe psychiatric issues and had been arrested months earlier trying to carry three guns onto a passenger airplane.Three months later, the weapon was one of two handguns recovered by police in the home of Cullen Mutrie following the April 12 shooting death of Greenland Police Chief Michael Maloney and the wounding of four other officers. Investigators have said Mutrie shot the officers and killed Tibbetts before taking his own life.Officials have alleged in court documents that Tibbetts was a drug-dealing accomplice of Mutrie, but Young said investigators have yet to fully determine whether Tibbetts had a criminal record of any type that would have prevented her from passing a background check to buy a handgun or get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Mutrie was barred from possessing weapons after a domestic violence conviction. Police confiscated multiple weapons from Mutrie in 2010, when he was subject to a domestic violence restraining order.
Is New Hampshire open carry?
It is otherwise lawful in New Hampshire to carry an unconcealed, loaded handgun in public without a license. New Hampshire has no other law regulating the open carrying of firearms in public.
The 300-table January gun show at the National Guard Armory in Manchester was one of nine scheduled in 2012 by the Bow-based firm DiPrete Promotions Inc. DiPrete is also sponsoring a gun show April 28-29 at the ice arena in Biddeford, Maine. According to the company’s Web site, there is room for as many as 300 eight-foot tables for vendors in Biddeford, and tickets are $8, with children under age 12 admitted free if accompanied by an adult.DiPrete is also sponsoring gun shows scheduled for September in Concord and Manchester. It is not known what the ratio of licensed to unlicensed dealers was at the Manchester show. Unlicensed dealers are not required to file sales paperwork and licensed dealers are required only to hold sales records. DiPrete did not respond to phone and e-mail messages requesting comment for this story.
New Hampshire does not specifically regulate gun shows. See also the New Hampshire Universal Background Checks section for state laws that apply at gun shows.New Hampshire law prohibits any member of any civil group from assuming any semblance of military organization or character by bearing or possessing rifles, pistols, or military weapons of any kind.
