NH Gov. Chris Sununu Vetoes Democrat’s Latest Red Flag Law – HB687 [Updated]

Veto 1

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu has vetoed HB 687, the Democrat’s latest red flag law. A bill that turned strangers into informants with the power to deny you your rights to property or due process because of their opinion.

[Updated] In his veto message, the governor says a lot but this is the bit in which we are most interested.

 

Unfortunately, the process laid out in House Bill 687 goes too far and would weaken the constitutional rights of law-abiding New Hampshire citizens. This bill could lead to situations where law-abiding Granite Staters have their property seized with no notice or opportunity to speak in their own defense. The lack of due process in this legislation is antithetical to the New Hampshire and American tradition. These and other provisions in House Bill 687 run counter to our constitutional rights as laid out in the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 14th amendments to the United States Constitution as well several articles in the New Hampshire Constitution.

 

Cue the Democrat Fainting Couches

We expect the typical lying and moaning from Democrats about guns and violence as if that has anything at all to do with why they pushed HB687. It does, a little. New Hampshire Democrats want to deny you the right to self-defense. You know because the police will protect you. But in this context, the Left uses “guns” to get something they want more. Expand state power to randomly deny property and due process rights—just’ cuz.

One of the Mask Stasi sees you doing something they don’t like, or maybe they just don’t like you. Bills like HB687 empower them to make a call. The next thing you know, people from the government arrive with guns to take your stuff, and you can try to stop them and get restrained, arrested, and maybe even killed.

After they take it, it is your problem. If you want your stuff back, you need to go to court, pay fees, lawyers and prove you were unjustly denied your constitutional rights.

Why? Just ‘cuz a random stranger made an accusation that does not need to be verified or substantiated.

And the best part, that’s sarcasm, is the snitch suffers no ill effect for an act protected by Law as if it denying people property and due process rights were some sort of public good.

So, we’d like to thank the Governor for opposing unconstitutional legislation and for his continued support of some of our natural rights.

Note: The Democrat Majority does not have the votes to override the veto

Note2: We will update this post with his veto message shortly.
