Latest News from NHFC
Come meet Congressman Frank Guinta on Wednesday, May 4:
Shooters Outpost
1158 Hooksett Road
Hooksett, NH
US Congressman Frank Guinta (R-NH-1) will hold a press conference to discuss the bill he has sponsored that will allow the sales of all firearms across state lines.

Because New Hampshire is the only state in the Northeast without a sales tax, Congressman Guinta’s simple bill,  H.R. 4928 — the Firearms Transfer Improvement Act – would benefit our many licensed dealers.  Just as people travel to New Hampshire to purchase appliances, electronics, furniture and jewelry, they will be able to purchase firearms free from sales tax! Congressman Guinta’s bill would benefit New Hampshire’s entire economy.H.R. 4928 also benefits New Hampshire residents.  If a person is on vacation and decides they would like to purchase a firearm.  They may do so with out the inconvenience and added cost of having their new firearm shipped to a licensed dealer in New Hampshire.  They can leave the store with it immediately.  In this age of computers along with the mandated “instant check” there is no reason why anyone should be forbidden from purchasing firearms from any licensed dealer, any where, any time.
H.R. 4928 is not the only strong pro-gun action taken by Congressman Guinta, it is just the most recent.  He has also sponsored or co-sponsored:
H.R.923 – Constitutional Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2015
Concealed carry reciprocity laws across the nation have been confusing. H.R. 923 is huge because it would allow citizens who possess concealed carry permits in their home state to exercise that same right in any other state (that allows concealed carry).
H.R. 3115- Enhancing Safety at Military Installations Act
In the wake of the tragic shooting rampage that left five U.S. service members dead in Chattanooga, Congressmen Guinta immediately signed on to this bill that would allow trained service members at U.S. military installations such as recruitment centers, one of which was the site of last week’s attack, to carry firearms.
H.R. 2710- The Lawful Purpose and Self- Defense Act
Eliminate ATF’s authorization to reclassify popular rifle ammunition as “armor piercing ammunition.”
Provides for the lawful importation of any non-NFA firearm or ammunition that may otherwise be lawfully possessed and sold within the United States.
Protect shotguns, shotgun shells, and larger caliber rifles from arbitrary classification as “destructive devices.”
Broadens the temporary interstate transfer provision to allow temporary transfers for all lawful purposes rather than just for “sporting purposes.”
H.R. 1865, the Recreational Lands Self-Defense Act
The Congressman sponsored it in the 112th Congress, and has signed on to it again.
H.R. 1865 grants gun owners the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights when they are legally camping, hunting, and fishing on Army Corps property.
Currently, legislation passed into law allows individuals to possess an assembled or functional firearm in any parcel of land in the National Park Service or National Wildlife Refuge System, but NOT on any Army Corps of Engineers’ land. The Recreational Lands Self-Defense Act would prohibit the Secretary of the Army from enforcing any regulation that keeps an individual from possessing firearms on Army Corps Water Resource Development project if:
The individual is not otherwise prohibited by law from possessing the firearm
The possession of the firearm is in compliance with the law of the state in which the project is located.
Cosponsored H.R. 3799- The Hearing Protection Act
This legislation would eliminate the $200 transfer tax on firearm silencer and allow hunting with silencers.  It is important because there will be no more $200 tax stamp. No excessive wait times. No fingerprint cards, passport photos, or Chief Law Enforcement Officer Signature. No NFA trusts. A simple process, just like when you purchase most firearms through a dealer.  Citizens should not be taxed for trying to protect their hearing while exercising their Second Amendment rights.
Cosponsored H.R. 4321- Separation of Powers Restoration and Second Amendment Protection Act
The bill limits the President’s ability to bulldoze over the system our forefathers set in place to limit a tyrannical government. It halts any Presidential executive action that violate the Second Amendment or infringe on Congress’s Article I responsibilities as having “no force or effect,” prohibits funds for such actions, and establishes standing for Congress, state and local governments,Congressman Frank Guinta has been there for us, lets show strong support for him at Shooters Outpost on May 4, 10:00AM.   Please thank Congressman Guinta for his efforts!
Thanks for your support!

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.

In Liberty,

Rep. JR Hoell
Corporate Secretary – NHFC
