While other state and federal laws prevent any person in New Hampshire from selling a firearm to a convicted felon, it does not seem necessary to take away the authority of municipalities -- authority the state has granted for nearly 20 years -- to license local retail sellers of firearms
Let's see, States enacting legislation giving local law enforcement authority to enforce federal laws... sounds vaguely familiar.

Where is the outrage here? Why are none of the other states calling for boycotts of NH? Why is the DOJ not filing suit? Why are there no foreign nations filing suit against them? Isn't this the equivalent of what Arizona is being harassed for doing?

Maybe it's because Illegal Aliens vote Democrat and guns aren't allowed to vote.
