"I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people...To disarm the people are the best and most effectual way to enslave them." -George Mason-1788.

And within that same spirit of independence the state of New Hampshire, has just passed a new bill making it legal to now carry a concealed, loaded gun without a license.

The bill just signed into law by Republican Gov. Chris Sununu eliminates the requirement for a concealed-carry license for pistol and revolver owners.

The new law simplifies the process by allowing anyone with a gun license under state and federal law can now carry that firearm concealed in a purse, in a car or a briefcase.

Signing his first bill upon taking office the governor announced: "It is common-sense legislation," this is about making sure that our laws on our books are keeping people safe while remaining true to the live-free-or-die spirit."

Moreover, the new law makes a concealed-carry license optional, rather than mandatory. And according to the National Rifle Association, the state of New Hampshire is currently the 12th state to enact the “concealed-carry” law, along with its tradition as an open-carry state.

Before the governor signed the bill licensed gun owners who wanted to carry their firearms concealed, has to apply for a separate license at their local police station, and go through another background check to see if they were "suitable" which actually makes little sense.

Of course, the Democrats are criticizing the new law stating: "The governor claims concealed carry is about 'safety,' but he is making it harder for law enforcement officials to keep track of guns that fall into the wrong hands. New Hampshire has imminent issues that need the Governor's attention, but further relaxing the state's notoriously lax gun laws is not one of them," the statement reads.

However, supporters of the new bill say those concerns are misplaced and that police have been unfairly denying people licenses.

Republican Rep. John Burt perhaps said it best and to the point; "The Constitution is very clear, and the chiefs of police need to grow up, that’s why they’re mad: They can’t abuse the public anymore."
