January 9th – Gun Control Hearings in the NH Senate

January 5, 2024 / NHWomen / 2nd Amendment

On Tuesday, January 9th, from 1:00 – 4:00 PM there will be two gun control bills heard in the New Hampshire Senate Judiciary Committee. There is also a pro-2A bill that will be heard.

It doesn’t matter that New Hampshire is consistently one of the safest states in the country. It doesn’t matter that New Hampshire has ‘Constitutional Carry.’ What matters to gun controllers is out-of-state legislation that will intentionally harm Granite Staters and infringe upon your fundamental human right to self-defense.

The gun control bills are listed below:

Senate Bill 571 – AN ACT requiring a background check prior to any commercial firearm sale.

This bill has been resurrected from the depths of Hell for at least a decade. And as always, this bill will make it so anyone who provides firearm training, other than those who are already FFL dealers, will NOT be able to provide firearm SAFETY training. Year after year after year, we have explained how this bill harms those who seek gun safety training but year after year after year, gun controllers don’t care. They claim to be all about gun safety but when it boils down to facts and reality, it’s more about control. They care nothing about actual gun safety.

Senate Bill 577 – AN ACT imposing a waiting period between the purchase and delivery of a firearm.

This bill seeks to stop law-abiding Granite Staters, who pass a federal background check, from taking the legally purchased firearm home for 3 days. If you’re a woman with a stalker or abusive partner and don’t have a restraining order, you’re out of luck when it comes to protecting yourself and practicing your fundamental human right to self-defense. NH’s 2A doesn’t mention anything about a waiting period, neither does the Constitution. The only people who want a waiting period are those who seek to enable criminals.

The only good bill to support is below:

Senate Bill 322 – AN ACT relative to licenses to carry.

After ‘Constitutional Carry’ was passed that doesn’t require Granite Staters to ask permission from the government to carry a firearm how they see fit, some Chiefs of Police decided not to sign their names on the pistol/revolver licenses (PRL) of those who still sought to get a PRL for reciprocity purposes in other states. This bill will require those who issues PRLs to sign their name to them.
