New Hampshire: Important Campus Carry Hearing Tomorrow!

New Hampshire: Important Campus Carry Hearing Tomorrow!

Tomorrow, February 2, the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee has scheduled a hearing to discuss House Bill 1314, important campus carry legislation, at 11:00am in Room 204 of the New Hampshire State HouseIf you are available, we urge you to attend this hearing and voice your strong support of HB 1314.

HB 1314, sponsored by state Representative Ed Comeau (R-5), would strengthen New Hampshire’s existing preemption statute to prohibit a state-funded university, institution or entity from regulating the sale, purchase, ownership, use and possession of a firearm by someone who is not otherwise prohibited under current law.  New Hampshire’s firearm preemption statute helps protect the Second Amendment rights of New Hampshire residents by ensuring that firearm and ammunition laws remain consistent across The Granite State.  This prevents a complex patchwork of regulations across the state that makes it difficult for responsible firearm owners to ensure they are following the law. 

State-funded colleges and universities should not be allowed to impose rules more strict than state law.  A person who lawfully possesses a permit to carry a concealed firearm should be able to exercise their fundamental right to self-defense by carrying that firearm in any place he or she has a legal right to be, including college and university campuses.  HB 1314 would help ensure that students on college campuses statewide are able to exercise their Second Amendment rights.

Please consider attending this hearing in support of HB 1314.  If you cannot attend, please contact members of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee TODAY and urge them to support HB 1314.

Please forward this email to friends, family and fellow Second Amendment supporters in New Hampshire and encourage them to do the same.
