New Hampshire HB 514 - Waiting Periods
New Hampshire HB 514
by Rep. Katherine Rogers (D) with Dennis Abbott (D), Lisa Bunker (D), Jacqueline Chretien (D), Casey Conley (D), Tim Josephson (D), Donna Mombourquette (D)
LEAP Forward Position: Support
CONCORD — The House and Senate are both in session on Thursday, voting on some of the most important legislation of the year.
In the past year I have sat through hours of testimony in support of common-sense gun violence prevention bills in the New Hampshire House and Senate. This is not a new experience for me as I have testified on similar bills in the past, although supporters of the NRA and their Republican allies overshadowed the appetite for change in those years.
New Hampshire lawmakers are considering significantly changing the state's gun laws, with three bills being debated in the Senate.
