New Hampshire: Firearms Legislation before Committee Next Week

Friday, February 15, 2013

Several firearm-related bills are scheduled for a hearing in the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee on Thursday, February 21 in Representative Hall.

The following anti-gun bills will be considered:

HB 290-FN, introduced by state Representative Delmar Burridge (D- Cheshire 16), would prohibit individuals without a carry permit from openly carrying a pistol or revolver in a public building.  This legislation imposes unnecessary restrictions on your Right to Keep and Bear Arms and provides no benefit to public safety.  This hearing will take place at 10:00 a.m.

HB 396, introduced by Representative Cynthia Sweeney (D-Sullivan 8), would establish a committee to study the effect of mandated safety training or instruction prior to the purchase or acquisition of a firearm.  This legislation would be an extremely costly endeavor that places an undue burden on law-abiding citizens wishing to exercise a constitutional right.  This hearing will take place at 2:00 p.m.

The following pro-gun bills will be considered:

HB 609, introduced by Representative Daniel Itse (R-Rockingham 10), requires each individual school district to vote to establish policies and procedures relative to licensed school employees carrying a firearm while on school property.  This legislation provides local school boards the option to allow employees who hold a pistol/revolver license to carry on the job, increasing the safety of students and school employees across the state.  This hearing will take place at 11:00 a.m.

HB 451-FN, introduced by Representative J.R. Hoell (R-Merrimack 23), is an omnibus bill of which a key provision would repeal the licensing requirement for carrying a concealed pistol or revolver.  This legislation would allow law-abiding gun owners to carry their firearms for self-defense without going through the arduous process associated with obtaining a pistol/revolver license.  This hearing will take place at 1:00 p.m.

Please contact members of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and urge them to stand up for our firearms freedoms when they vote on these measures next week!   Click here to view contact information for members of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee.
