APPEARS IN Legal & Legislation

Gun Ban Put into Effect at New Hampshire State House

Tuesday, December 22, 2009

Please Contact the Members of the Joint Committee on Legislative Facilities Today!

Yesterday, the Joint Committee on Legislative Facilities voted 8-3 to take away our Second Amendment rights while in the State Capitol complex.  The newly enacted regulation states:

"No person, except for law enforcement personnel in active duty, shall carry a firearm or other dangerous or deadly weapon or an explosive, openly or concealed, while inside the State House, the Legislative Office Building, the Upham Walker House, or any of the underground tunnels connected to these buildings. Law enforcement personnel, when requested by State House security staff, must produce sufficient identification establishing their status as law enforcement personnel."

In 2008, the legislature voted down similar legislation overwhelmingly.  Unfortunately this week, a handful of legislators passed a regulation in committee and created this new “victim zone” without notice. 

Please contact your State Legislators and the members of the Joint Committee on Legislative Facilities TODAY and respectfully urge them to re-consider their attack on our Second Amendment rights.  Contact information for the committee can be found below.  To find contact information for your State Legislators, please click
