Gov. Maggie Hassan's veto of a bill to remove the licensing requirement for carrying hidden guns is hardly the last word on the issue.

The New Hampshire Liberty Alliance is organizing a rally on the Statehouse lawn on Saturday for gun owners. A Facebook page advertising the event encourages participants to peacefully exercise their rights to carry guns openly and concealed, if they have a license.

Hassan, for her part, is using the veto as a way to raise cash. She is telling supporters in an email that the National Rifle Association will attack her and is seeking to raise $5,000 by the end of Tuesday.

State law allows anyone who can buy a gun to carry it openly, but carrying a gun concealed requires a license from local officials.
