Last week during its executive session, the New Hampshire House Criminal Justice Committee, in a surprise move, gutted House Bill 1264 (Hoell-R) and replaced it with a measure to establish a commission to study the “so-called” link between firearms and violence.
As originally introduced, HB 1264 was an initiative to allow Vermont residents to carry concealed in New Hampshire without a license requirement. Now, New Hampshire residents are left with a commission to study the obvious -- firearms don’t commit crime -- criminals do. This new version of the bill could be considered by the full House of Representatives as early as next week. Please contact your state Representative(s) TODAY and urge them to vote Inexpedient to Legislate (ITL) for HB 1264. If you are unsure who represents you in the state House, click here.
