With Democrats in the majority, the latest Red Flag bill will pass through the legislature like s**t through a goose. And it’s halfway there. Today the NH House voted to advance the legislation.
The 201-176 vote on the opening day of the new legislative session moved New Hampshire a step closer to joining 17 other states and Washington, D.C., in passing so-called “red flag” laws.
And one of my reps is quoted!
“I believe we can all agree that firearms in the hands of dangerous people are a threat to public safety. It’s time now to address that threat and put an extreme risk protection order in place here at home,” said Rep. Nancy Murphy, D-Merrimack. “Let’s show the people of New Hampshire we are serious about public safety.”
New Hampshire is one of the safest states in the country, year after year. No Red Flag law. Few if any firearms laws, actually. We have permitless carry, concealed carry, and low crime as well as low violent crime.
Do you know who has high violent crime? Democrat cities that restrict law-abiding citizens’ right to defend themselves from criminals.
The NH Democrat majority Senate will pass it, the Governor will veto it, and overriding that will be nearly impossible. But on principle, this bill is dangerous. It allows confiscation or private property on a whim, but these are
Democrat Socialists, so what else did we expect?
