Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement after the New Hampshire House passed HB 687-FN, relative to extreme risk protection orders:

“This is yet another bill that seeks to encroach upon the Second Amendment and Article 2a rights in New Hampshire. This bill, HB 687-FN, sponsored entirely by Democrats, is a model of so-called “Red Flag” legislation - allowing anyone to utilize the New Hampshire judicial system to limit the rights of anyone else in the state. This is a dangerous disarming of the people of New Hampshire and encroaches upon their rights. Legislators would be wise to realize that New Hampshire is constantly among the safest states in the nation because of our strong support of the Second Amendment, and our strong Second Amendment community.”
