New Hampshire: Governor Sununu Vetoes Firearm Seizure Bill

NRA-ILA Veto

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, Governor Chris Sununu vetoed legislation that sought to allow the suspension of your Second Amendment rights without due process.  Thanks to the Governor’s actions, House Bill 687 will be unable to erode our Constitutional Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  Please contact Governor Sununu and thank him for vetoing firearm seizure legislation, House Bill 687.

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.

NRA would like to thank Governor Sununu for standing against House Bill 687’s attempt to damage the Second Amendment rights of New Hampshirites.  Also, thank you to those NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their legislators and the Governor in opposition to House Bill 687.  Your calls and emails made all the difference. Again, please contact Governor Chris Sununu and thank him for vetoing House Bill 687.

Thank you, Gov. Sununu. However, your state like most all others, do violate the Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. You DO INFRINGE on the right of he people to keep and bear arms.

NH has sufficient laws in place to remove guns from persons with a small amount of due process. Ask anyone who’s been taken for self-harm threat or been in a hot divorce. HR 687, like the “assault weapon” references, are show bills for the left to establish precedence (for worse law) and affect undue control over the sheople and erode the constitution that keeps these political flakes in check. It seems making laws that criminalize the law-abiding is too easy and enforcing laws to protect them, well that’s just too (expensive, racist, difficult, politically damaging,…) fill-in-the blank,

If it wasn’t for Gov Sununu’s vetoes the last few years, our socialist legislators would have made our gun laws just like mASSachusetts.

“The Right to Keep and Bear Arms should …….only be restricted when sufficient protections are in place”. Yep, that’s your NRA Legislative Action folks who have no clue what “Shall not be infringed” means! That phase should be given great weight as no where in Our Constitution is that phrased used except in the 2nd Amendment. Now why is that? “Shall not be infringed” is not a Right my friends – it is a mandatory, above question, restriction upon government, PERIOD! Exactly what, when, where, why and how any so called sufficient protections allows restrictions (infringements) upon The People’s power… Read more »

To John,

WOW, you are really RADICAL.I for one am glad you said it.

That’s great, I’m right there beside you.

It is critical for us to stand for all our rights or we will lose all.

We must pay attention to what our local and federal legislators are doing and support only those that have our convictions.

Yes, we do. NH Governor Chris Sununu gave us Constitutional Carry in early 2017, after the previous governors (Dems) kept vetoing it. He’s now in his second two-year term, and is running for a third term. Because both houses of our state legislature unfortunately flipped from R to D in the last election, Sununu is — at least for now — our “last, best hope” to honor the state motto, displayed on every car’s license plate: “Live Free or Die.”
