It is illegal in New Hampshire to fire a weapon on private land not owned by someone else, within 300ft of a building that is permanently occupied. Permission can be given by the owner to allow this. Having a loaded shotgun or rifle on a power boat, airplane, or motor vehicle is also illegal.
New Hampshire law is more restrictive than federal law when it comes to convicted felons owning weapons. Anyone who is convicted of a drug felony or a felony “against the person or property of another,” is banned from owning any deadly weapon in New Hampshire. The state defines deadly weapons as “any firearm, knife or other substance or thing which, in the manner it is used, intended to be used, or threatened to be used, is known to be capable of producing death or serious bodily injury.”.
