Anybody know the details of the two failed attempted amendments? Legiscan has just the votes, not the text.Back on January 19th, Senate Democrats offered (and were defeated on) two amendments to address flaws in SB 12. Bette Lasky (D-Nashua) introduced an amendment to "require background checks for gun owners applying for concealed carry permits". I'd like to see the text (Sen. Lasky Floor Amendment 0064s and Sen. Watters Floor Amendment 0029s), just for chuckles.
Definitely want to see what the amendment says, still no update online.HB84 does away with the loaded rifles in vehicle BS. This bill has passed the committee unanimously HOWEVER there was an amendment. I have not been able to find out what that amendment said since there is nothing available online yet for the bill.
Those are finally up (they were blank PDFs for a while for some reason) - http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/bill_status/bill_docket.aspx?lsr=140&sy=2017&sortoption=&txtsessionyear=2017&txtbillnumber=sb12&q=1
I imagined my intent was clear -- that the email blast providing a call to action to the broader audience of those who have never seen NES, heard of NHFC, or know what is going on in Concord, might have been useful -- but perhaps I was not clear.Why feel bad? The best case scenario is the NRA stays the hell away from this.
Just for the record - NY is not part of New England, so it would be 1/2 of the six New England sates.Every member who lives in MA, but who comes to visit NH should be all over supporting this bill.
1. It will save you the renewal fees
2. It will make one more state near MA that has adopted Constitutional Carry, meaning VT, ME and NH would have all passed CC and almost 1/2 of the states in New England would be free. Time to work on RI, MA, CT and NY.
While I agree that NY is not part of New England, maybe we should draw the boundries of New England with just ME, NH and VT and then 100% of New England would be free to carry in.Just for the record - NY is not part of New England, so it would be 1/2 of the six New England sates.
It's really annoying to see one of the people on this committee list is from my town and vote No. I emailed all my reps (including the one who vote No) and told them how I would like them to vote. One who agreed with me wrote back and said he would be happy to. The others didn't respond at all. I looked up the one No voter and of course, they are from Rhode Island. Barf.Here is the roll call breakdown. Looks like party lines.

The NRA is supporting the bill this time. The local activists and NH gun owners complain enough about prior actions, that they joined us. The issue is an out of state group who has dropped more than $200,000 into New Hampshire pushing for NYC city [AKA Russian/Nazi] style gun control. $130K against Avard in the elections, over $40K in lobbying fees last year and they have a number of higher priced lobbyists on the payroll this year. They are spending big bucks running ads on the the Union Leader.Any word on this bill getting Hohenwartered or otherwise sabotaged by the NRA?
