Concord N.H. – The New HaState-housempshire House passed a bill Wednesday that would remove the licensing requirement for carrying a concealed firearm, a significant change to the state’s gun laws. The Senate had already passed the bill. There was a slight change in the language of the bill so it will first go back to the upper chamber for a second vote before going to Gov. Maggie Hassan. The governor plans to veto it saying in a statement “By passing Senate Bill 116, the legislature would be taking a step away from our tradition of common-sense gun laws, and I intend to veto this measure” Current law requires anyone who wants to carry a gun concealed such as in a purse or under a coat to get a license from local law enforcement or officials. This bill would allow anyone who can own a gun to carry it hidden without the license. Maine is considering similar legislation and Vermont already has so-called “constitutional carry” laws.

Pinkhams Grant N.H. – As a result of a kickstarter campaign the Volunteer ski patrol was able to get some new equipment. According to the kickstarter page the campaign started by members of the Time for Tuckerman website sought to have James Niehues create a trail map style illustration of Mount Washington and Tuckerman Ravine. They raised over $6,000 and which was over their goal of $4,200. They decide to take that surplus and donated it to the U.S. Forest Service Mount Washington Avalanche Center who in turn allowed the Volunteer Ski Patrol to accept the fund on behalf of them. They used the money towards the purchase of equipment such as GPS devices and equipment to help patrollers communicate. To check out the Kick starter page click here.
