Yesterday, the Senate Finance Committee voted to pass pro-gun legislation that fixes the handgun purchase process in the Granite State IMG NRA-ILA

U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Yesterday, the Senate Finance Committee voted to pass pro-gun legislation that fixes the handgun purchase process in the Granite State, by a vote of 5-2. Thanks to your strong support, this important legislation will advance this session, and will move to the State Senate for a floor vote tomorrow, April 1. Please contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 141.

Senate Bill 141 resolves New Hampshire’s longstanding problem with delays during handgun purchases, by abolishing the “state gun line” system that the State Police currently use for handgun purchases.  Instead, the process for purchasing a handgun will now mirror buying a long gun, which goes through the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).  This switch in the process will not only reduce taxpayer burdens, but it will also greatly reduce the number of delays experienced by those attempting to exercise their Second Amendment rights by purchasing a handgun.

Again, please contact your State Senator and ask them to SUPPORT Senate Bill 141.

NRA would like to thank the following members of the Senate Finance Committee for their hard work supporting and protecting our Second Amendment rights:

Chairman Gary Daniels (SD 11)
Vice-Chairman John Reagan (SD 17)
Senator Erin Hennessey (SD 1)
Senator Bob Giuda (SD 2)
Senator Chuck Morse (SD 22)

You are wrong. The state police responded to the delays by staffing up and are now very efficient. Do you really think it’s better to move this to the FBI? Do you think they’ll respond better to NH citizens? This is an absurd mistake by the gun lobby in NH.

So then we’ll just add more layers of potential inefficiency to the process and spend even more unneccessary money to fix problems that should have been corrected long ago. They only made some changes when they found out they were about to be fired. If similar problems existed in the FBI NICS program it would be a national problem, not just NH. No, we don’t need the NHSP Gunline.

We have had Constutional carry, no license required, for a while now. Along with our neighbors Vermont and Maine. We share with them the lowest crime rates on the East coast.

It’s about time! And when you get right down to it, I think it’s kind of a ‘conflict of interest’ to have the police determine who shall be able to buy a gun and who may not. That line is too easily smudged.
