New Hampshire: State House Vote Expected on Two Pro-Gun Bills Tomorrow

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

Contact your state Representative(s) today!

Today, Governor John Lynch once again publicly announced his opposition to two important pro-gun bills: House Bill 334 and House Bill 536.  These bills are also expected to be voted on by the state House tomorrow, January 4.  Please call AND e-mail your state Representative(s) today and urge them to SUPPORT HB 334 and HB 536.  Contact information can be found below.

HB 334 (Cunningham-R) would strengthen current statewide preemption by further prohibiting local governments or state agencies from enacting ordinances or regulations for the use of firearms.  Over the past several years, local government and state agencies have attempted to regulate concealed carry throughout the state of New Hampshire.  These types of regulations undermine the fundamental American principle of equal protection under the law for all citizens.

To prevent the problems associated with restrictive local ordinances, forty-four states have enacted “firearm preemption laws” -- laws that prevent local jurisdictions from imposing ordinances more restrictive than laws passed by the state legislature, thereby avoiding the possibility of thousands of separate firearms regulations. Without preemption, New Hampshire could have myriad local firearm laws, making compliance nearly impossible for law-abiding gun owners, hunters, target shooters, and firearm collectors who travel through multiple jurisdictions on the way to hunting areas or shooting ranges.  Additionally, individuals who travel with firearms for personal protection are at risk of breaking the law simply by crossing from one municipality to another.   HB 334 will ensure uniform firearm laws throughout New Hampshire and guarantee equal rights for all.

HB 536 (Hoell-R) would repeal the existing law that requires a person to have a concealed firearm license in order to carry concealed.  In New Hampshire, existing law allows any law-abiding citizen who can legally own/possess a firearm to carry it openly, either loaded or unloaded, anywhere in the state.  This legislation will not change the current permitting system, which will still be required for those who wish to participate in reciprocal concealed carry permit agreements when traveling outside of the state.  Additionally, HB 536 clarifies existing law for law-abiding individuals, not engaged in the business of selling pistols or revolvers, to sell a firearm to a non-prohibited person.

Please forward this alert to your family, friends and fellow gun owners.  Encourage them to also call and e-mail their state Representative(s) today and ask them to SUPPORT HB 334 and HB 536.
