Concord, NH - NHGOP Communications Director Joe Sweeney released the following statement regarding Democrats politicizing a national tragedy:

“Democrats are disgustingly politicizing a tragedy by sending the Governor these anti-Second Amendment bills immediately following terrible acts of violence in Texas and Ohio. None of these bills would have prevented those tragedies. But, by purposefully withholding the legislation for months until tragedy struck, Democrats made it clear that they are only here to play politics and they should be ashamed of themselves. This is a despicable new low for Senator Soucy and Speaker Shurtleff. Make no mistake, New Hampshire is consistently ranked as one of the safest states in the nation due to our strong Second Amendment and Article 2A culture. Governor Sununu is right to veto all anti-Second Amendment legislation, and Granite Staters support him doing so.”
