CONCORD, N.H. — The New Hampshire Senate has voted to study whether to allow guns on college campuses and other public property.

The Senate voted without debate today to study that House bill and two other House-passed bills that soften gun regulations.

The second bill would allow gun owners to transport shotguns and rifles with a bullet in the chamber and a third would eliminate the need for law-abiding residents to obtain a license to carry concealed, loaded weapons.

Senate President Peter Bragdon said the committee is still working on a similar bill that eliminates the need for a concealed weapons license to see if problems with it can be fixed.
