Help to pass Constitutional Carry Bill…

by NHFC, Inc. on January 24, 2015

After many months of hard work we are much closer than we have been in a long time to passing a true “Constitutional Carry” bill.

SB 116, sponsored by Senator Jeb Bradley will be heard in the New Hampshire Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, January 29 at 1PM.  The hearing will take place in Representatives Hall.

SB 116 repeals R.S.A. 159:4, which is the law that requires a person to have a license to carry a concealed and loaded pistol or revolver.  However, SB 116 modifies and leaves in place R.S.A. 159:6 which allows people to obtain a license.  This is important for those firearms owners who travel because the New Hampshire Pistol / Revolver license is currently valid in 22 states.

We need SB 116 for several reasons, first and most importantly, the right to own, carry and use firearms is a constitutionally protected civil right.  The founders did not contemplate citizens groveling to public officials to exercise that right.  And second, last summer the state police, without any public notice, hearing or attention, modified the application form for a concealed carry license.  As long as a license is required your civil right to be armed will be at the mercy of bureaucrats.   SB 116 will put a stop to this type of behavior because the license will no longer be required!

Action Items:
1) Please plan to attend this important public hearing to show your support for “Constitutional Carry”.  Even if you do not wish to speak at the hearing, please attend and sign the blue form as being in favor of SB 116.
2) Please call AND email the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them in the strongest possible language recommend SB 116 “ought to pass” without no amendments or changes.

I am troubled.  We thought that our Second Amendment Rights would be well protected when the Republican Caucus in the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted for Rep. Bill O’Brien as their choice for Speaker of the House.  Unfortunately, I have learned there is a mutiny afoot in the what now appears to be a fractured Republican Party.  More on that later, first I want to explain why it is so very important that we support Rep. O’Brien.

As many of you may know, the Speaker does much more than just preside over the House and moderate debate.  The Speaker is responsible for assigning committee members and chairmen as well as “steering” favored bills through the legislative process.  Rep. O’Brien did all of this and more when he was Speaker in the 2011/2012 session.  He made sure that anti-gun bills died and pro-gun bills such as “no duty to retreat” were passed over the Governor’s veto.  To be honest, we need Rep. Bill O’Brien as Speaker of the House.

I am troubled because I have learned that NHFC D rated, anti-gun Rep. Shawn Jasper is leading the mutiny to elect some other anti-gun Speaker of the House.  Rep. Jasper is looking to make a deal with the anti-gun Democrats to elect an anti-gun speaker.  Rep. Shawn Jasper is an elitist power hungry politician who will do anything for his own selfish reasons.

We are not sure exactly what promises have been made, but one thing is certain, the Democrats have nominated NHFC F rated Rep. Stephen Shurtleff as their choice for Speaker.  D rated Rep. Jasper or F rated Rep. Shurtleff, or A rated Rep. Bill O’Brien.  The choice seems obvious to me.

Time is of the essence, we must act now, the House will vote for Speaker on Wednesday, December 3, 2014.

We cannot allow this to happen.  I need to mobilize all NHFC Members to immediately contact Rep. Jasper and demand that he stop this mutiny at once.  You need to call and email him:

You must call Rep. Jasper at: (603) 595-9621 or click here to email him.

Please make it clear to Rep. Jasper that you view ANY attempt to “make a deal” for someone other than Rep. O’Brien to be Speaker of House an overt anti-gun act.  Please be polite but firm when you insist that they drop their mutiny and support the will of the majority of the Republican Caucus and elect Rep. O’Brien Speaker of the House.

If you have contact information for any of the newly elected State Reps. from your district please call and email them as well and deliver the same message.  Unfortunately, the State House has not yet published contact information for any of the newly elected Reps. If you know the names of any re-elected Reps. you can find their contact information here.

Please also call the House Republican Office at: (603) 271-3665 and tell whomever answers the phone that you expect a Second Amendment friendly Speaker of the House, specifically, Rep. Bill O’Brien.  Make it clear to them that you will view ANY attempt to reverse last weeks caucus vote as an overt attack on your Second Amendment rights.  Make it clear that you are outraged that they have not moved to expel  Rep. Jasper from the caucus for his treasonous behavior!

If you receive any emails in response please click here to forward them to NHFC.

Please act now, we don’t have much time and we really need a Second Amendment friendly Speaker of the House.

Thanks for your support.
