We are now running on a new, and hopefully much-improved, server. In addition we are also on new forum software. Any move entails a lot of technical details and I suspect we will encounter a few issues as the new server goes live. Please be patient with us. It will be worth it! :)
Please help by posting all issues here.
The forum will be down for about an hour this weekend for maintenance. I apologize for the inconvenience.
"Accordingly, we conclude that the challenged rules requiring nonresidents to
provide proof that they hold resident state licenses in order to obtain concealed
carry licenses in New Hampshire are ultra vires and, therefore, invalid."
Further, we cannot disregard the fact that residents of certain states, like New Jersey, may simply be unable to satisfy state requirements for a license that differ from New Hampshire’s statutory requirements. Because the rules at issue here effectively incorporate into New Hampshire’s requirements for concealed-carry licenses the requirements established by other states for the issuance of concealed-carry licenses, the rules change the requirements of RSA 159:6, and thus, “add to, detract from, or modify the statute which they are intended to implement,” Mays, 161 N.H. at 473 (quotation omitted).
A big benefit from this is PA's reciprocity agreement with NH does not preclude non residents from carrying in PA on a NH permit. I bet PA AG Kane is trying to figure out a way to prevent this from happening like she did with VA, FL, UT and MS.
The NH reciprocity agreement doesn't limit the agreement to residents like the others do.
