1.Pistol and Revolver (CCW) License $10 for 4 years. No training, no fingerprints, no bull@#$%, and it must be approved or denied in 14 days. Legal remedies against CLEO who wrongfully denies a License.
Effective July 1, 2009, the fee for Non-Resident Applications increases from $20.00 to $100.00.
It seems that processing is taking as long as three months - apparently they are overloaded. Have heard/seen the same response on other forums.
And as a little bit of surprise info:
"New Hampshire doesnâ€™t require you to have a license or a permit to buy or own guns, with one exception
: if you buy a handgun (not a rifle or shotgun) from a private party â€” as opposed to a licensed dealer â€” then by state law (RSA 159:10 and RSA 159:14) you must either have a License to Carry
or be â€śpersonally knownâ€ť to the seller."
Wrong citation. The resident
license is still only $10, and processing must be complete
within 14 days. Why would I care about the non-resident
fee or processing time? Neither affect me, and the question was about "good" state gun laws. Do the non-resident VA requirements keep you awake at night, or affect you in any way? It's all about how hard it is to get a resident
license, as well as the limitations upon same.
As to the private sale, there is no statutory definition of "personally known to the seller," which means this transaction is perfectly within the law:
ScottNH: Hi, my name's ScottNH
GrapehotNH: Hi, I'm GrapeshotNH. Here. Have money.
ScottNH: Pleased to meet you GrapshotNH. Here. Havegun.
Not particularly onerous.
