    Folks.

    HB 687, the horrifically written Red Flag bill sponsorsed by Rep Altschiller is still alive and actively being worked by the NH legsilature.

    As you may recall 687 was "Retained" by the legislature earlier this year

    The House is holding a hearing/working on the bill this week on Thurs 9/5 @ 11a

    Welcome to the NH General Court | NH General Court

    11:00 am
    • HB687, relative to extreme risk protection orders.
      Subcommittee Work Session
      LOB Rm 204, House Criminal Justice and Public Safety


    Click on 9/5 date on calendar to see schedule

    Do any of our current/former NH Reps know details as to how these work sessions are handled?

    Can we assume they are not closed and the general public will have an opportunity to testify?

    The statists are not done with this bill......we need to ride them hard and wear them down to stop these unconstitutional attempts to infringe on constitutionally guaranteed rights

    Below is the proposed bill as introduced....committee didnt even bother to post the shappy attempts to ammend it that were sprung on the public minutes before the hearing earlier this year

    Surprised no one is taking note on this

    Its our best opportunity to demonstrate early how proposed red flag bills are wholly unconstitutional wrt the NH Constitution.

    If folks dont make the effort you're going to be facing a tuned up HR 687 that the MDA crowd and Bloomy have spent months behind closed doors shreiking about

    Is there anything which can be done by citizens now. I always call the governor's office on bills like these when the time comes. Unfortunately I can't drive so that limits what I can do.

    I saw this on the WMUR website two days ago...I am confused. I thought that this was already vetoed or are the donks trying to drum up enough people to overturn the veto? Someone please explain...

    687 was "Retained" by the committee.......

    thats why they can continue to work on it and try to pass it......

    They will continue to try political stunts with red flag bill like the senate president did by holding onto 3 of the 4 bills and timing submission to sununu's desk to correspond with a shootings somewhere in the country to leverage media hysteria

    This is why people need to continue to be enguaged and show up for these hearings

    Thank you! I will continue to call/email the Governor and every rep and senator that I believe will make a difference.
