NH: Help Strengthen Pre-emption and Enact Snowmobile Constitutional Carry

It has been almost two weeks since the Senate Judiciary Committee conducted public hearings on two pro-gun bills that already passed the House of Representatives. The committee has not yet voted on these bills. We still have time to let the committee know that these vitally important pro-gun reform bills should be voted “ought to pass.”

Please use the above form to send a pre-written message to all members of the Judiciary Committee.

HB 307, sponsored by GOA Life Member Rep. Norm Silber and four co-sponsors, strengthens New Hampshire’s longstanding firearms pre-emption law by adding modest penalties.

Gun owners are entitled to a clear set of laws and rules that are consistent statewide. They have a right to know that conduct, which the General Court has deemed lawful, is lawful everywhere in the state. Despite the clear language found in R.S.A. 159:26, lawless cities, towns and school boards are still attempting to regulate the ownership, use and carry of firearms. HB 307, as amended by the House, would put an end to this lawless behavior.

HB 334, sponsored by Rep. John Burt and nine co-sponsors, is a very simple bill that extends New Hampshire’s Constitutional Carry law to snowmobiles and ATVs.

If a person can carry a handgun in public, or in their car or boat, then they should also be able to carry one on a snowmobile or ATV without a Pistol or Revolver License. This bill is a clerical amendment to the 2017 Constitutional Carry law.

Both of these bills have already passed the House of Representatives. Here is what you can do to help to get HB 307 and HB 334 enacted into law.

Don’t forget to fill in the above form to send a pre-written message to all members of the Judiciary Committee, urging them to vote HB 307 and HB 334 “ought to pass” without any other amendments or changes.
