Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding anti-gun legislation passing the New Hampshire Senate today:
“With the passage of several pieces of intrusive and flawed firearm legislation today, Democrats in the Senate have joined Democrats in the House in an all-out assault on the Second Amendment. U.S. News and World Report recently ranked New Hampshire as part of their “Best States” rankings as the safest state in the nation - that level of safety is a by-product of our strong and responsible culture of gun ownership. Republicans in the both the House and the Senate stood united against this gun grabbing bills and I commend every Republican legislator for listening to their constituents and holding the line on these bad pieces of legislation.”
HB 109-FN, requiring background checks for commercial firearms sales.
HB 514-FN, imposing a waiting period between the purchase and delivery of a firearm.
HB 564, relative to possession of firearms on school property.
HB 696-FN, establishing a protective order for vulnerable adults
