Guns in Schools in New Hampshire

Posted on August 19, 2015

New Hampshire has no law prohibiting persons who are not pupils from possessing firearms in a school zone. Any pupil who brings or possesses a firearm – concealed or otherwise – in a safe school zone (any school property or school bus) without written authorization from the superintendent shall be expelled from school by the local school board for at least 12 months.1

See our Guns in Schools policy summary for a comprehensive discussion of this issue.
