Profiteering on gun bans…

by NHFC, Inc. on April 25, 2016

Did you see the alert that NHFC Vice President Alan Rice sent on Friday?  If not, you can find the alert by clicking here.

It is critical that you read all of the underhandedness that has been going on in Concord.

For many years, we have been able to keep the anti-gun wolves at bay with simple phone calls and letters, while other states have had to resort to much more significant tactics, like protests and boycotts.  I hope we never have to get there.  However, the rules were changed last week.

Unbeknownst to all of us,  “EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY ACTION FUND” which is known to most Gun Owners as “EVERYTOWN FOR GUN BANS” has been spending money on lobbyists in New Hampshire to do their dirty work.  This was the first that we were aware of that Bloomberg’s pawns have actually been spending money to enact New York style gun control in New Hampshire. Let’s make it the last time!

The amendment being pushed by EVERYTOWN needs to be stopped!   Furthermore, it is critical that NO New Hampshire based company profits over the loss of your civil rights!

This recent finding, that groups are hiring lobbyists, has caused the leadership of NHFC to do some research on who is being hired and by which groups.

We also found the paper trail that shows that the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police has been busy using your taxpayer dollars to fund a lobbyist to testify against your civil right to be armed.  It seems to me that that organization is acting like part of the gun ban lobby.  Last year alone they paid over $40,000 to a single lobbying firm.  The lobbyist, Elizabeth Sargent spent quite a bit of time working against your civil right to be armed. If you are offended by having your taxpayer money spent this way, feel free to call Sheehen Phinney Capitol Group (603) 228-2370 and let them know that you are keeping an eye on them and will be looking at their clients in the future.

In the mean time it is The DuPont Group that is being paid by former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to take away your rights. That is what requires our involvement this Tuesday, April 26 at 10 AM.

Rep. Dave Welch, who is the Vice Chair of the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee will attempt to pass an amendment that was drafted and requested by EVERYTOWN for Gun Safey (sic).  The best way to stop this is to show up at the hearing on Tuesday morning and sign in as opposed to amendment 2016-1405h.  If you cannot make it, please consider calling the committee assistant at (603) 271-3419 and asking her politely to leave a note for the members of the Criminal justice Committee that you are strongly opposed to amendment 2016-1405h. Or you can use this link to email the entire committee at once.  Tell them to send amendment 2016-1405h back to the Soviet Satellite State of New York from where it came.  Click here for the names and contact information of all committee members.

If New York wants to only allow the criminals to be armed, that is their decision, but we in New Hampshire like our firearms to be in the hands of the law abiding citizens.

Rep. JR Hoell
Corporate Secretary – NHFC
The gloves are off!  Anti gun former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has hired The DuPont Group, a Concord, NH based lobbying firm to push his gun-ban agenda. Shockingly, these are the same lobbyists who are employed by the New Hampshire International Motor Speedway, NASCAR and Crotched Mountain Resort.  These two New Hampshire institutions are now tainted by their affiliation with gun ban extremists.

The anti-gun idealogues have come out swinging, they have proposed a “killer amendment” to SB 336.  This anti-gun amendment intends to rewrite this pro-gun bill [SB336] into a bill that greatly expands the unconstitutional instant check. 

The DuPont Group and its principles are sneaky, they are quietly trying to get their anti-gun agenda passed and make money on our loss of freedoms, but we here at NHFC have pulled back the curtain and exposed these enemies of freedom to the light of day.  Most lobbyists act like prostitutes, they will work for whomever pays them.  Edward DuPont, Susan Paschel and Curtis Barry are three of those prostituting themselves to the highest bidder. 

Unfortunately for New Hampshire’s firearms owners, Rep. Dave Welch, Rockingham 13, has agreed to be the “water boy” for these lobbyists and anti-gun extremists.  He authored under his name their anti-gun agenda and has called for a special hearing on Tuesday April 26th to introduce this anti-gun amendment.  If this amendment passes, every anti-gun group in the country will follow their lead and start paying big money to every “money grabbing lobbyist” to take away our civil rights.

That’s right, even though New York gun control is a failure, criminals run rampant and violent crime is far more prevalent than in New Hampshire, Bloomberg wants to export New York style gun control to New Hampshire.  He wants to make New Hampshire like New York and snuff out our freedom.

What is really troublesome to me is that Edward DuPont is a former New Hampshire Senate President.  It seems that Mr. DuPont has forgotten his roots and what New Hampshire values really are.  Or maybe he didn’t forget and the allure of Bloomberg’s money got the better of him.  Whatever the reason, Edward DuPont is acting truly evil and he is working for the most evil of organizations, “EVERYTOWN FOR GUN SAFETY ACTION FUND” …known to most Gun Owners as “EVERYTOWN FOR GUN BANS”.

If DuPont, Barry and Paschel like New York gun control so much they should pack up shop and go live in New York; otherwise, leave New Hampshire alone, we are doing just fine thank you!

Here is what you can do to help.

  • Call the DuPont Group at (603) 228-3322 and ask to speak with Edward DuPont, Susan Paschel and Curtis Barry and let them know that their anti-gun activities have been exposed.
  • Then, call the New Hampshire International Motor Speedway at (603) 783-4931 and let them know that you do not appreciate their affiliation with an anti-gun outfit.  Tell them that you take your Second Amendment rights very seriously and because they have hired the DuPont Group you now consider them just as anti-gun as their hired prostitutes in Concord. 
  • Then make the same call and deliver the same message to Crotched Mountain Resort at: (603) 588-2000.  The remainder of DuPonts clients are out of state interests who probably don’t care about the New Hampshire culture of freedom!
  • Lastly, call and email Rep. Dave Welch and tell him that you are onto his anti gun games and that you are outraged that he is trying to introduce and pass an anti-gun amendment for Michael Bloomberg.  You can call Rep. Welch at(603)642-4402 or click here to email him.

Finally, click here to email all of the members of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee and tell them that you want Michael Bloomberg’s anti gun amendment defeated and you expect them to pass SB 336 without further delay.

Thanks for your support.

In Liberty,

Alan M. Rice
Vice President & Training Director – NHFC

Chris Christie: Just another lying politician!

January 18, 2016

If you watched the Republican Presidential debate on January 14, 2016 you may have been as shocked as I was to hear anti-gun New Jersey Governor Chris Christie claim he made it easier to obtain a carry permit in New Jersey.  Christie lied. It is virtually impossible for law abiding citizens to carry a firearm […]
