New Hampshire: Bill Restricting Firearm Use Set for Committee Hearing

On Tuesday, February 18th, the New Hampshire House Municipal and County Government Committee will hold a public hearing on House Bill 1115 to ban the discharge of firearms within 900 feet of nonresidential, commercial buildings within the compact part of a city or town. 

Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact committee members and ask them to stand with you by OPPOSING House Bill 1115.

House Bill 1115 prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 900 feet of a nonresidential, commercial building without prior approval from the landowner. The bill also gives more authority to cities and towns to prohibit the use of firearms on “other property used for public recreational use.” This could result in a de facto ban on hunting and target shooting in areas where it is currently lawful to do so. While the NRA condemns negligent discharge of a firearm, the proposed change will only negatively impact law-abiding hunters and gun owners in the area.  

Again, please click the above “Take Action” button above to contact committee members in OPPOSITION to House Bill 1115.
