U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- The General Court has transmitted House Bill 687 to Governor Chris Sununu for his consideration. HB 687 allows Second Amendment rights to be suspended without due process.

Please click the “Take Action” button below to contact Governor Sununu and respectfully ask him to VETO House Bill 687.

TAKE ACTION

House Bill 687, sponsored by Representative Debra Altschiller (D-Rockingham 19), allows ex parte orders to suspend Second Amendment rights without adequate due process. Further, if the order is vacated after an individual surrenders their firearms, that individual will have to go to court to have their property returned, unlike when the court wrongfully takes their property away. Knowingly filing a false claim is only a misdemeanor, while violating an order is a Class B felony, punishable by three and a half to seven years of imprisonment. This extreme difference in punishments could lead to false accusations against many law-abiding individuals.

Constitutional rights should only be restricted with sufficient due process of law. Due process limits restrictions on constitutional rights to only serious convictions and adjudications that provide procedural protections to the accused, which results in more reliable proceedings. The Right to Keep and Bear Arms should not be treated as a second-class right and should only be restricted when sufficient protections are in place.

Again, please click “Take Action” above to contact Governor Sununu and ask him to VETO House Bill 687.

A misdemeanor if filing a false claim and you still have to go to court to get your guns back? It’s just like being falsely accused of rape; the woman almost always walks away with no consequences and the man has to fight to reclaim his innocence and still pay for an attorney. Looks like another lawyer money-making deal in addition to a violation of several Amendments including the 2nd. What the hell is wrong with this country any more?

It should be abundantly clear that communist democrats are the real enemy of the state, they will never stop unless they are totally destroyed.
