Earlier today, the New Hampshire House held the last of several floor votes on three anti-gun bills. Thanks to the strong support of NRA members and Second Amendment supporters, the bills were defeated and will not move forward this session. NRA-ILA would like to thank all of those Representatives who defended the Second Amendment for law-abiding citizens in the Granite State.
House Resolution 8 urged Congress to pass an “assault weapons ban.” While no specifics were outlined in the resolution, gun grabbers continue to advocate for bans on standard equipment for commonly-owned firearms that many Americans and Granite Staters legally and effectively use for an entire range of legitimate purposes, such as self-defense or competition.
House Bill 158 banned “ammunition designed and intended to penetrate armor plating or ballistic vests.” This legislation is duplicative and unneeded. Federal law already prohibits the manufacture, importation, sale, or delivery of “armor-piercing” ammunition with very few exceptions.
House Bill 191 allowed state agencies to destroy voluntarily surrendered firearms, rather than requiring them to sell these firearms at public auction or to keep them for their own use.
Again, thank you to NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their State Representatives in strong opposition to these anti-gun bills.
