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 do the following:
1.) Make it easier for the issuing authority to deny a right-to-carry license;
2.) Make it much more difficult for anyone who challenged a licensing denial in court to be awarded attorney fees and court costs, even if the issuing authority is found to have violated the licensing law;
3.) Removes the personal liability of the issuing authority, making taxpayers foot the bill, even for gross negligence or malice on the part of the authority, and;
4.) Allows any group or individual to be arbitrarily designated as a "terrorist organization” based on innuendo and hearsay (without due process).
MAKE NO MISTAKE:
THIS IS A BACKDOOR ASSAULT ON YOUR RIGHT-TO-CARRY
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE!
The Senate Judiciary Committee has scheduled SB44 for a hearing on Thursday, March 15 at 9:00 a.m. in State House Room 103. This is the first anti-gun measure to come before the committee this year, so your attendance is important!
