To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the New Hampshire "Access to Government Records and Meetings" Statute (RSA Ch. 91-A), I hereby request the following records:

Any and all policies, procedures, directives, memorandums, and any other guiding materials regarding matters pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:
• policies and procedures on the issuance of firearms permits and licenses. (Please note that this point is not a request for the identities of individual permit or license holders, but, rather, is a request for governmental policies and parameters regarding the process and regulations by which one may obtain either a permit or a license. If separate strictures exist for each, provision of both would be greatly appreciated.)
• policies and procedures on the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• any and all available policies and procedures regarding local firearms policies. Please provide all such materials that alter or supplement departmental procedures.
• policies and procedures regarding the sale and purchase of firearms. Please include all materials regarding the appropriate qualifications for the sale or purchase of firearms. Please include materials for particular venues, if available, including but not limited to the sale and purchase of firearms at gun shows.
• policies and procedures regarding the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms.

Please include all available segregable data.

Please also provide all available data, statistics, or reports regarding matters pertaining to gun acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:
• the issuance of firearms permits and licenses.
• the revocation of firearms permits and licenses.
• incidents involving the use of a firearm.
• the sale and purchase of firearms.
• the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms.

If various policies or reports exist dependent on the type of firearm, provision of all applicable materials would be greatly appreciated. Should they be voluminous, provision of materials on rolling basis would be greatly appreciated.

Should your agency believe that any additional policies, procedures, reports or other analysis pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, transfer, deaths, incidents, or any related issues may reside with another agency or agencies, indication of such agencies would be greatly appreciated.
Please notify us if further clarification is necessary.

I write to acknowledge your Right to Know request dated September 20, 2016, which was received on March 9, 2017. Specifically, you requested:

Any and all policies, procedures, directives, memorandums, and any other guiding materials regarding matters pertaining to firearm acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:

• policies and procedures on the issuance of firearms permits and licenses;

• policies and procedures on the revocation of firearms permits and licenses;

• any and all available policies and procedures regarding local firearms policies;

• policies and procedures regarding the sale and purchase of firearms;

• policies and procedures regarding the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms; as well as

All available data, statistics, or reports regarding matters pertaining to gun acquisition, licensure, use, and transfer, including, but not limited to, the following:

• the issuance of firearms permits and licenses;

• the revocation of firearms permits and licenses;

• incidents involving the use of a firearm;

• the sale and purchase of firearms; and

• the transfer, either out-of-state or between individuals, of firearms.

In light of the broad scope of the request, it is difficult to estimate the time reasonably necessary to determine the extent of available records. I estimate that it will take 60 days to collect responsive records and determine the extent of their availability. Are you able to narrow your request by identifying a time period within which to search for responsive records?

Should you have any questions, please contact me at Michael.mcquade@dos.nh.gov<mailto:Michael.mcquade@dos.nh.gov>
