New Hampshire: More Anti-Gun Bills Considered This Week

Multiple legislative committees are scheduled to consider several anti-gun bills this week. Each of these bills are unnecessary attempts to create further restrictions on your Second Amendment rights and will do nothing to prevent violent crime in New Hampshire. Committee members need to hear from you now.

Please click the “Take Action” button to contact committee members and ask them to stand with you by OPPOSING House Bills 1285, 1374, and 1350. The button will direct you to a second committee action, so be sure to click through it too.

House Education Committee

House Bill 1285 prohibits law-abiding citizens carrying firearms for self-defense from going on school grounds except when picking-up or dropping-off students, and only if the firearm remains in their vehicle. So-called “gun-free zones” simply disarm law-abiding citizens and leave them defenseless against the criminals who ignore such arbitrary boundaries.

House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee

House Bill 1374 repeals current New Hampshire law which prohibits state agencies from operating “voluntary surrender and destroy” programs for voluntarily surrendered firearms. Currently, state agencies are required to sell these firearms at public auction or keep them for their own use. Proceeds from the sale of these firearms are deposited in the general fund. This bill would open the door for state agencies to destroy surrendered firearms, waste taxpayer money, and undermine public safety.

House Bill 1350 mandates that any firearm transfer, including temporary transfers, include a firearm safety device. As drafted, this creates absurd outcomes, such as requiring a gun lock or safe to be included when someone simply borrows a firearm at the shooting range or while out hunting.

Again, please click the above “Take Action” button to contact committee members in opposition to House Bills 1285, 1374, and 1350. The website will redirect you to a second campaign, so be sure to click through it too!
