There is a bill (HB1589) in the New Hampshire House today that was being discussed in committee hearings that will put more gun control laws into place in the Granite State. To push this unnecessary bill, there were out-of-state gun control advocates testifying. These people are parents of children who died in the Newtown shooting. It’s despicable to use dead children as props to push further gun control in a state where there isn’t a gun crime issue. It’s deplorable that these people believe criminals like the shooter in Newtown would actually obey their gun laws (the Mother of one admitted that the gun control bill was about 'Social Change'). In fact, the gun laws in Connecticut worked and the shooter (who will remain nameless here) was not allowed to get a gun legally. That did not stop him from committing the heinous crime.
What this bill and these ‘advocates’ want to do is turn law-abiding citizens and gun owners into criminals. This bill will not stop criminals from getting guns illegally nor will it stop gun crimes or gun violence (both of which are very low in New Hampshire even though gun ownership is high). This bill does nothing but take away the rights of law-abiding citizens to conduct business as they have for years. The people testifying do not live in New Hampshire. They only visit when paid to by far left wing, anti-2nd Amendment organizations. They are not experts in crime nor are they experts on gun crime rates in the Granite State.
Not surprising it’s the far left wing organization Granite State Progress who has brought these people to New Hampshire. The fact they would sink so low as to bring in out-of-staters to the Granite State who will use the deaths of children by a criminal to push gun control on law-abiding citizens is beyond despicable. It also shows the type of organization they are and the people they have running it. New Hampshire does not have a gun violence or gun crime problem. What the Granite State has an out-of-state infestation of gun control hysterics who despicably use dead children as props to push laws in a state that does not need them.
