One would have limited firearms on school property. Another one would have imposed a waiting period on sales and delivery and the last would have required criminal background checks.
Gov. Chris Sununu likes to label Democrats in the Legislature “extreme.” His vetoes in recent weeks suggest he’s the one out of touch with New Hampshire residents. Here are 10 of Sununu’s 50-plus vetoes:
CONCORD - Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed three gun violence prevention bills, minimum wage legislation, a redistricting commission and others on Friday that were all close to the hearts of Democratic lawmakers.
I can remember every active shooter training I’ve participated in to prepare me and my classmates for the possibility that we, like so many other students, will have to know what to do if someone with a gun comes into our school.
CONCORD - The governor vetoed a Seacoast lawmaker’s bill establishing protective orders against elderly abuse, arguing it lacked adequate protections for victims and could pose a threat to gun rights.
CONCORD — The House and Senate finished their legislation session Thursday acting on 31 bills – including one suspending the work requirement for the Medicaid expansion program and another raising the minimum wage to $12 an hour over the next two years.
CONCORD — The State Senate approved along strict, party-line votes three gun control measures Thursday closing a background check loophole, imposing a three-day waiting period to buy a gun and permitting local school boards to ban guns on their property.
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.
