    An Associated Press review of firearms-related legislation shows that state legislatures mostly fell back into predictable and partisan patterns after mass shootings in Las Vegas and Parkland, Florida. New Hampshire was no exception.

    The Republican-led Legislature rejected several gun control measures in the last session, choosing instead to expand a law on where firearms can be carried.

    The Senate in February rejected a bill to ban weapon devices known as bump stocks that allow guns to be fired at faster rates. The House later blocked the introduction of a bill that would have both banned bump stocks and prohibited those under age 21 from buying any type of gun.

    The only gun-related bill that passed was one allowing guns to be carried on snowmobiles, aircraft and off-road vehicles.
