CONCORD, NH (CBS) – New Hampshire is considering a bill that would let people carry a gun without having to get a license.
A house panel has approved the bill that lets anyone carry a weapon without a permit, except for people who are mentally ill or convicted felons.
Advocates say the US Constitution is the only permit someone really needs.
Opponents, including law enforcement say a law like this could have disastrous consequences.
To become a law, the bill would still have to pass the full house, senate and the governor.
