LET FREEDOM RING: New Hampshire Governor to Veto all Gun Control Bills

Published

on

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.

HB 109 would mandate a background check for all private firearms transfers. Universal background check legislation that has become a fad for gun control advocates nationwide.

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.

White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward

Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.

Published

on

On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.

Dean Weingarten of Ammoland.com reported that the bill passed by a 66 to 31 margin.

Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:

The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.

Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well.  If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.

Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.

Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.

It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
