New Hampshire: Gun Bills Scheduled for Committee Hearing

New Hampshire: Gun Bills Scheduled for Committee Hearing

Tomorrow, January 26th, NRA members and Second Amendment supporters in the Granite State are invited to attend, and participate in, a public hearing on several gun bills being heard by the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee. The Committee will hold public hearings on several anti-gun bills and, thankfully, one pro-gun bill. The public hearings will begin at 9:00 AM in the State House.

Please act now and urge committee members to SUPPORT House Bill 1636 and OPPOSE House Bills 1668, 1096, AND 1151!

Pro-Gun Bill:

House Bill 1636: “ATV-Carry” allows the carry of a loaded firearm on an Off-Highway Recreation Vehicle (OHRV) or snowmobile.  This legislation also helps to clean up the law from when Permitless Carry was passed and a snowmobile prohibition remained.  If you can carry a gun in your vehicle, or on your person, you shouldn’t have to surrender your right to self-defense simply because you’re operating a snowmobile.

Anti-Gun Bills:

House Bill 1668: requires background checks for the commercial sale of firearms, already mandated under federal law.  This duplicative and unnecessary legislation is simply a first-attempt to enact so-called “universal background checks” for the purchase of firearms in New Hampshire.  The bill would do nothing to improve public safety and its effectiveness would depend on requiring gun registration.

House Bill 1096 and House Bill 1151: impose bans on the open carry of firearms within 100 feet of a polling place and various public demonstrations.  These arbitrary bans are simply anti-gun virtue signaling that only affect law-abiding citizens, dictating how they must exercise a constitutional right, while doing nothing to improve public safety.

Again, please contact the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee members and respectfully urge them to SUPPORT House Bill 1636 and to OPPOSE House Bills 1668, 1096, AND 1151!

Don’t forget to forward this message to your family and friends and urge them to fight to protect the Granite State and the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
