Posted on 05/02/2022 4:49:09 AM PDT by marktwain
New Hampshire is getting close to passing a reform of current carry restrictions. The current law restricts the carry of loaded handguns on off-road vehicles, including snowmobiles, to those with a carry permit.
The law is a relic of the days before New Hampshire passed Constitutional Carry in February of 2017, five years ago. On March 10, 2022, the New Hampshire House passed the bill easily, 204 to 134, with 54 not voting. HB 1636 reforms the law to remove the carry permit requirement for carry of loaded firearms on off-road vehicles. On April 20, 2022, the bill passed the Senate Transportation Committee with a vote of “ought to pass”. From HB 1636:
1 Off Highway Recreational Vehicles; Loaded Firearms Prohibited. Amend RSA 215-A:20 to read as follows:
215-A:20 Loaded Firearms Forbidden. No person shall carry on an OHRV, or a trailer towed by same, any firearms unless said firearm is unloaded. This section shall not apply to law enforcement officers carrying firearms in the course of duty or to pistols or revolvers carried [under a permit issued pursuant to the authority of RSA 159] by any person who is not prohibited from possessing a firearm by a New Hampshire statute.
2 Snowmobiles; Loaded Firearms Forbidden. Amend RSA 215-C:35 to read as follows:
215-C:35 Loaded Firearms Forbidden. No person shall carry on a snowmobile, or a trailer towed by same, any firearms unless said firearm is unloaded.

A mild reform, a clean up of law left over from five years ago when they passed Constitutional Carry.
What part of shall not be infringed do the leftists not get?
It’s illegal to carry a vehicle in NH?....................
Only if you carry it off road, I guess.
Yeah, that would be dangerous.................
“It’s illegal to carry a vehicle in NH?....................”
It would be foolish to even try to carry a vehicle but some will attempt it. Expect some back injuries. ;-)
