The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled SB44 for a hearing on Thursday, March 15 at 9:00 a.m. in State House Room 103. Senate Bill 44, sponsored by State Senator Peter Burling (D-5), and State Representatives Lee Hammond (D-Grafton 11) and John Tholl (R-Coos 2), seeks to change the Right-to-Carry licensing statute to make it easier for the issuing authority to deny a license.
Further, the bill raises the standard by which attorney fees may be awarded in a lawsuit against an issuing authority for a violation of the licensing law to "gross negligence or malice," and removes the personal liability of an issuing officer.
This legislation opens the door for more license-issuance problems in New Hampshire.
This is the first anti-gun measure before the committee this year, so your attendance is important!
