Two important pieces of pro-gun legislation sponsored by State Senator Peter E. Bragdon (R-11) will be heard on the State House floor next week. SB 318, would reform “Castle Doctrine” laws so that: (1) a person would have the right to meet force with force to protect himself or herself and family members regardless of their location, and (2) a “duty to retreat” would no longer exist in any place a person may lawfully be. SB 348, known as "Emergency Powers" legislation, would prohibit state and local law enforcement agencies or their agents from confiscating firearms from law-abiding citizens or prohibiting the transport, sale, carrying and use of firearms, during declared state emergencies, except in the course of enforcing laws against criminal possession or use of firearms.
Please contact your State Representative today and respectfully ask him or her to choose your personal protection over partisan politics by voting in favor of SB 318 and SB 348. You can reach your State Representative by phone at (603) 271-2548.
It is unreasonable for victims of a crime to have to worry about being arrested or prosecuted if they use force to defend themselves or their family! Citizens throughout New Hampshire are counting on you to contact your State Representative TODAY!
