The destructive and draconian gun control bills that were passed in the House are going to be heard in the Senate!!!!
When: Tuesday – April 30th
Where: State House – Room 100
Senate Judiciary Committee
Show up at the hearings. You do not have to testify. You can sign in against these draconian gun control measures and show the senate that, as always, Granite Staters refuse to kowtow to out-of-state organizations seeking to harm their protected fundamental human right to self defense.
9:00 AM – HB 109, requiring background checks for private firearms sales AND transfers. This legislation will actually make it impossible for women to get gun safety training! This legislation will turn law-abiding citizens into criminals all while criminals continue to completely ignore existing laws! It’s the same exact California gun control legislation they have tried to pass 3 previous times.
It also creates a “register of each sale” (gun registry) which is expressly prohibited by federal law. For the record, commercial firearm sales are already covered in existing statute.
10:00 AM – HB 514, imposing a waiting period between the purchase and delivery of a firearm! They want to make women LESS SAFE by forcing a 7 (really up to 11) day waiting period between the time of purchase of a firearm and the time of pickup of said firearm or ammunition!! Law Enforcement has no duty to protect us; we must be our own first responders. This bill inhibits women’s right to self defense.
This will effectively END all gun shows in New Hampshire (hurting small business) and once again, harm all law-abiding citizens!
11:00 AM – HB 564, banning law-abiding citizens from carrying concealed firearms in a ‘safe school zone.’ Currently, those who have pistol/revolver licenses are allowed, per federal law, to carry concealed on school grounds. CRIMINALS have never obeyed ‘gun free zone’ laws, which is why schools are often targets. This law will further enable criminals to more easily prey on our children.
This legislation also VICTIMIZES those who are victims and MUST protect themselves in their daily lives, especially women.
New Hampshire children and citizens deserve better than to be criminalized or turned into easy targets by criminals.
And of course, as with all gun control, this legislation CRIMINALIZES law-abiding Granite Staters.
It is a fact that 98% of mass public shootings occur in gun free zones, why would anyone want to increase those odds in New Hampshire?

Michael Bloomberg is spending a lot of $$$ to push all of this gun control in New Hampshire. It will take an army of Granite Staters to FIGHT BACK!
