N.H. House Kills Anti-Gun Measures

posted on February 18, 2017

The New Hampshire House of Representatives this week voted down two anti-gun bills that would have negatively affected law-abiding gun owners in the state.

If enacted, HB 201 would have required individuals to appear before a licensed firearm dealer to request a criminal background check prior to transferring a firearm, absent limited and vague exceptions. The firearm dealer would also have been required to create a record of each sale. And the measure’s vague definition of a “commercial sale” would have encompassed all private sales and transfers of firearms. It was voted down 221-151.

HB 350, which was voted down 204-144, would have made carrying a gun while voting a Class B felony, punishable by up to seven years in prison. Currently, individuals can lawfully carry a firearm into a polling place where it is not prohibited by law to do so.
