On Tuesday, January 9th, the Senate Judiciary Committee will be holding a hearing on two major anti-gun bills. The public hearings will begin at 1:00 PM in Room 100 SH, located in the New Hampshire State House. NRA members and Second Amendment supporters are invited to attend and participate in the public hearings.
Please contact committee members now and ask them to OPPOSE ALL anti-gun measures that would place further burdens on law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen!
Tomorrow’s hearing includes two major anti-gun bills:
SB 571-FN 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 does nothing to improve public safety and its effectiveness depends on requiring gun registration.
SB 577-FN delays Second Amendment rights by imposing a three-day waiting period before an individual may receive a firearm that they lawfully purchase, with limited exemptions. There is no evidence that waiting periods reduce violent crime. Instead, this simply denies someone the ability to buy a firearm for urgent self-defense.
Again, please contact committee members and urge them to OPPOSE any and all anti-gun measures that will do nothing to reduce violent crime in the Granite State!
