The Senate Judiciary committee will be making decisions on 6 critical pro-2a bills on Tuesday (5/25) and they need to hear from you tomorrow! We need them to vote OTP (Ought To Pass) for each of these pieces of legislation.

Email address for the committe members.

Sharon.Carson@leg.state.nh.us; William.Gannon@leg.state.nh.us; Harold.French@leg.state.nh.us; Becky.Whitley@leg.state.nh.us; Jay.Kahn@leg.state.nh.us; jennifer.horgan@leg.state.nh.us

The following bills are in the Senate Judiciary CMTE and need to come out with a positive recommendation

HB307 “The 2021 2nd Amendment Sanctuary State Act” [relative to the state preemption of the regulation of firearms and ammunition.]

This bill prohibits local officials from creating local gun free zones without General Court Approval. This bill expands what was started years ago. Current law prohibits the creation of local gun free zones, but the statute does not assign a penalty for breaking the law. Local officials seem to have no regarding for willfully violating this statute. This bill will correct those willful violations by adding a penalty. This is the most important bill that we need your help to pass.

HB195 Ending prosecution for display of a firearm under reckless conduct [adding display of a firearm as an exception to reckless conduct.]

Simply showing a firearm is not a crime. Threatening someone is an action and that is completely different from being charged for your shirt lifting up while getting out of a car. No one should be forced to spend their life savings to avoid going to jail for a class B felony for a firearm showing under your shirt while you pick up a grocery on the bottom shelf.

HB196 “Property protection is not a crime” [adding trespass as an exception to the charge of criminal conduct.]

This is a bill to prevent prosecution for what Mark and Patricia McCloskey did to protect their property. No one was hurt when a mob broke through the gates and trespassed on their property, yet the McCloskey’s were charged with a crime and not the mob damaging their property.

HB197 “Expanded Stand your Ground for vehicles” [relative to the use of deadly force in defense of another.]

Current law prohibits you from defending your loved ones sitting in your car. Under certain conditions when someone is about to commit a felony against you and you are inside your vehicle, you do not have the right to respond to protect yourself or those near you. This bill would restore that chance to defend yourself and your loved ones if ever that horrible situation arose.

HB334 Constitutional Carry for ATV and Snowmobiles [relative to prohibitions on carrying a loaded firearm on an OHRV or snowmobile.]

This bill simply solves a small oversight from when Constitutional carry was passed in 2017. Currently you are prohibited from riding on your own property while carrying a handgun

HB440 “The 2021 Protect Our Constitutional Rights Act” [prohibiting the suspension of civil liberties during a state of emergency.]

Currently the courts have ruled that the executive branch can strip us of our constitutional protections. This bill would correct that.
