New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu made waves in 2017 when he signed Constitutional Carry into law.
However, in 2019, gun control is likely coming to his desk thanks to New Hampshire’s Democrat-controlled state legislature.
He had previously told Democrats that gun control is not one of his priorities.
The measures coming to his desk are universal background checks, “gun-free” zone expansions around schools, and the creation of waiting periods for firearms sales. These bills were approved by largely party-line votes.
Sununu declared that he “absolutely” plans to veto all gun control legislation that Democrats pass. A spokesman of his even said that the governor does not intend to make changes to New Hampshire’s current gun laws.
The second bill, HB 514, would add three extra days to the time between a gun purchase and its transfer. There are only 10 states with waiting period requirements, spanning from 24 hours to 14 days.
The third bill, HB 564, would further restrict who can bring legal firearms on school property. Law-abiding gun owners with a firearm in their vehicle would be subject to a class “A” misdemeanor that could land a person in jail for 12 months and be subject to a $2,000 fine if they step out of their car with a gun, even if they are picking up a student.
Sununu will likely veto all three of these bills and none of these bills have enough support in the case of a veto override.
No Compromise Gun Lobby Calls Out Congress to Oppose Federal Gun Grab
On July 30, 2020, the National Association for Gun Rights raised awareness about gun control legislation introduced by Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine.
Under the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020”, the federal government would implement a series of gun control measures that were recently enacted in the state of Virginia. In their press release, NAGR argued that this plan would “strip law-abiding citizens of their Second Amendment and due process rights.”
At its core, the “Virginia Plan to Reduce Gun Violence Act of 2020” will effectively nationalize Virginia’s new gun control laws. This will include the state’s “red flag” gun confiscation order, a one-handgun-a-month law, and a ban on private gun transactions between lawful gun owners. Virginia’s gun grabs kicked off protests from tens of thousands of gun owners at the state capitol in Richmond, Virginia early in 2020. NAGR noted that “Senators Kaine and Warner want to impose them on the rest of the nation.”
“Just when law-abiding citizens are purchasing firearms in record numbers to protect themselves and their families, tone-deaf Democrats are squealing for more gun control,” declared Dudley Brown, President of the National Association for Gun Rights.
Brown announced that his staff is already working to mobilize more than 4.5 million National Association for Gun Rights members and supporters to reach out to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to oppose this gun control scheme and all other gun grabs.
“With police stations literally on fire and criminals taking over our streets, it should be clear that citizens are responsible for defending ourselves,” remarked Brown. “Gun control is never a good idea and pushing it right now is sheer insanity.”
