1.Has any state or federal agency or licensing authority ever claimed that you are prohibited by law or regulation from possessing a firearm?
2.Have you held a resident pistol / revolver license before?
3.Have you ever had a license to carry denied or revoked in this or any other state?
However, those questions catch rather innocuous and harmless situations such as;...Did the TSA ever mistake you for someone on one of the terrorism watch lists? Were you ever denied a pistol license in California or New York because the police chief didn't think you "needed" to carry a gun? Did you forget to write down the details of a Massachusetts pistol license you had back in the 80s? If so, with these changes to the application form, a New Hampshire police department could deny your application ? even though none of these disqualifies you from receiving a license under the law.
So far, there is no answer to the question of "Who ordered/approved these changes?" The NHFC is looking into it. If/when there is any answer, he will share it with you.
