New Hampshire House Democrats and rust have a lot in common. When it comes to eroding things neither rust nor NH Democrats ever sleep. New Hampshire has and continues to enjoy some of the least restrictive gun control laws in the Nation. One and perhaps the most important of these benefits is New Hampshire year after year is statistically one of the safest states in the union.
According to the CDC the leading cause of death in NH is Cancer, the drug deaths due to overdose is 30.3 per 100,000. The deaths due to covid is 14 per 100,000, firearm injury and deaths is 8.9 per 100,000. Finally homicides are 0 per 100,000. What this says is that homicides by firearms is statistically 0.
Now statistics fluctuate, and the 0 isn’t really 0, it’s just that there are not enough to count it as 1 of 100,000. The point is that here in NH we have laws that work for NH. There are no stats that indicate a need for restrictive legislation. In fact we have all seen that throughout the country the places that have the most restrictive gun laws have the highest crime and homicide rates by far.
NH Democrats have never been a group that likes reality much, especially when it contradicts their narratives or agenda. In typical fashion NH House Democrats have put forth legislation (again) to take away your gun rights. These bills and others like them are the same bills they put forth year after year, House session after House session. They never stop and if the day comes that the House has a Democrat majority, these fundamental constitutional rights to keep and bear arms that shall not be infringed will be trampled upon.
Luckily NH has had Republican Governor Chris Sununu whose unwavering support of our constitutional right to keep and bear arms has kept the Democrats at bay when the house falls to Democrat control.
We as the people of New Hampshire can’t afford to play “Russian roulette” with our constitutional rights. The Democrats jump on social issues to attempt to win elections, but it is their goal to strip you of your rights. Republicans continue to fight for your rights, freedoms, and the NH advantage.
- HB59-fn – Requiring a background check prior to any commercial firearm sale
- HB76 – Imposing a waiting period between the purchase and delivery of a firearm
- HB32-fn- Relative to possession or discharge of a firearm in a safe school zone
Typically, Democrats call these bills “common sense” gun laws, and they attempt to appeal to everyone’s sense of decency. Let’s face it, what type of monster would be against a background check, or a waiting period, and nobody would ever want a firearm being fired any where need our children in our schools. However, all these things are already in place.
Background checks are already necessary, and once the background check has been passed there is no need for a waiting period. Therefore, unconstitutional. There are many laws either Federal, State, and Local that prohibit firearms in school zones, so basically this bill would make it “illegal-er”.
All of these bills have been introduced time and time again, but sooner or later if the Democrats get their nose under the tent, they will not stop on the assault to your right to defend yourself, your family, and your property.
