New Hampshire: House Committee to Vote on Legislation to Fix Handgun Purchase Process

On Monday, May 10, the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee is expected to vote on NRA-backed Senate Bill 141, which fixes the handgun purchase process in the Granite State.  Please act now! Contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 141.

Senate Bill 141 resolves New Hampshire’s longstanding problem with delays during handgun purchases, by abolishing the “state gun line” system that the State Police currently use for handgun purchases.  Instead, the process for purchasing a handgun will now mirror buying a long gun, which goes through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).  This switch in the process will not only reduce taxpayer burdens, it will greatly reduce the number of delays experienced by those attempting to exercise their Second Amendment rights by purchasing a handgun.

Again, please act now and call on members of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee to SUPPORT this important piece of legislation to end delays on handgun purchases in the Granite State!

*****

Also, on Monday, May 10, the Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on House Bill 307 and House Bill 334.  Please act now and contact committee members and ask them to SUPPORT House Bill 307 and House Bill 334!

House Bill 307: Over recent years, numerous local governments have attempted to enact gun control ordinances in violation of the current state firearms preemption law, putting law-abiding gun owners at risk. This piece of legislation aims at strengthening New Hampshire’s preemption law to protect New Hampshire gun owners. Further, HB 307 allows anyone adversely impacted by an ordinance or regulation to file suit against the county, city, town, or government entity that enacted the violation (after notice is given).

House Bill 334: “ATV Carry” – Allows the carry of a loaded firearm on an Off-Highway Recreation Vehicle (OHRV) or Snowmobile. HB 334 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.

Again, please act now and call on members of the Senate Judiciary Committee to SUPPORT House Bill 307 and House Bill 334! NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters are also encouraged to testify and register their opinions through the state website by clicking here.
