DEMOCRATS BLOCK LEGISLATION ALLOWING VIOLENT CRIMINALS ACCESS TO FIREARMS

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRESB 141, dangerous legislation that would allow those with criminal history ability to obtain a firearm, and HB 334, a bill that would’ve reduced safety measures in the criminal background check system were vetoed on Tuesday. Following the news, Chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Caucus, Rep. Katherine Rogers (D-Concord), released the following statement:

“I am pleased that SB 141 and HB 334 will not become law in the Granite State. With 40-50% of all homicides in New Hampshire related to domestic violence, now is not the time to switch from a system that is working to one with critical gaps that would’ve endangered lives. I am proud that New Hampshire Democrats stood up to Republicans and Gov. Sununu and made the case to protect Granite Staters from harm. Gun violence should not be a partisan issue and has no place in New Hampshire.”
