I am not defending these people. But in response to a letter by Robert Craine (“Legality of gun used in moose encounter questioned,” April 25), questioning the woman involved with the moose about concealing a handgun and being a nonresident:

I am a New Hampshire resident and am licensed to carry a concealed weapon in Maine as well as New Hampshire and other states.

There are many people licensed to carry in multiple states. It is not a big deal as long as she is licensed. If she is not licensed, then she will face charges most likely.
