We should update the title. NH House Criminal Justice and Public Safety is deciding the fate of this bill on 10/30. For those that still have some vacation time, taking that morning off is a good idea. Bring a video camera.

I updated the title because design post 138 had requested it. I don't know how to merge it. Maybe a moderator could do so or if you know how you can do it or let me know how and I'll see what I can do.
Mods have to do it.....hopefully one will see recent posts and make it happen

Bottom line at this point is that the bill is unchanged from as submitted effectively and we need a pile of people to show up at the exec session to show a wall of opposition to this travesty

10/30 Wed @ 10a in rm 204 of the LOB which is the building directly behind the capitol bldg

If the moderators can merge these threads, that would be great.

Although we cannot testify, we can make it clear that HB687 and any amendments are repugnant to our Natural Rights that are documented in the Constitutions! Bring a video camera or a phone or table, take lots of photos and video and make sure their votes are blasted all of social media. If they are going to take away our rights, they will need to do it in the daylight.

We need to expose these Constitutional Traitors for what they are.

I know DUPE
If this was really about safety it wouldn't be limited to firearms.
Besides, there are already laws that allow them to do all this.

New Hampshire Committee voting on HB687 Gun Confiscation this week, we need your help to stop this bill

From New Hampshire Firearm Colalition
The committee will be voting this Wednesday (10/30) at 10:00am on this bill. If at all possible, we would love to have you join us there to oppose HB-687. We will have pre-printed handouts for use at the session to remind legislators that these bills need to be stopped. Bring a phone, tablet or camera; these anti-gun legislators need to be held accountable and the best way to do this is to video their behavior and share it with your friends.
Please make every effort to attend this Executive Session to let the Committee Members know that you will not accept one word of gun control.
Even if you plan to attend the Executive Session, it is important to send the following pre-written messages to the committee members.
One of our friends in the state house has obtained a copy of the latest amendment to the bill. This amendment, from Rep Murphy, [Merrimack] is just as bad as the bill that was introduced. The Amendment [2019-2790h] leaves in place all of the gun confiscation measures that were in the initial bill. Rep. Murphy needs to withdraw her amendment and make a motion to kill the bill.
Here is a pre-written message that you can include in your email to the members of the committee.
Dear Representatives:
On October 30th, you are scheduled to vote on HB-687 on a bill that should have been legally titled “Red Flag, Gun Confiscation”. This bill, as well as the proposed amendment [2019-2790h] by the Representative from the town of Merrimack, Rep. Nancy Murphy [603.424.0254], violates our Second, Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights. The bill, as well as the amendment, also violates numerous sections of the New Hampshire Constitution.
Last spring when you conducted a public hearing on HB 687, gun confiscation, it was abundantly clear that opponents outnumbered supporters. And for good reason, HB 687 deprives individuals of their natural and Constitutional rights without due process by allowing ex-parte hearings, conducted by telephone, allowing judges to order the confiscation of a person's guns without that person even being present. Sure, the accused can have a court hearing after his/her property has been taken but that is not due process. Furthermore, the "accused" would be forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on attorneys and experts to reclaim their civil right to bear arms. A person who is accused of a crime, even a low level offense retains their Constitutional right to face their accuser and have their day in court before punishment is meted out. However, in the case of HB 687 a person will be deprived of their property without a court hearing.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! As a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, I urge you to OPPOSE HB 687 and any amendments. Please do not force this unconstitutional scheme into law.
Please vote HB 687 "Inexpedient To Legislate"; The New Hampshire Firearms Coalition will keep me informed of your vote.
Thank you for your consideration
If you want to double down to protect our rights, please make a short, but polite, phone call to Rep. Murphy [603.424.0254] and ask her to withdraw her Gun Confiscation amendment and to quit supporting these failed radical gun control schemes. Remind her that she took an oath to uphold the Constitution and this bill along with numerous others that she has supported are clearly violating her oath of office. Please tell her that this anti-gun, anti-freedom bill needs to be voted "Inexpedient To Legislate" and ask her to make the motion to ITL the bill.
For those that are willing to make a personal phone call, I thank you in advance:
For those that want to contact the members by email, I have copied for you the contact information for each member of the Criminal Justice committee. The information is below. Please reach out to them directly and ask them to oppose this bill. As always, if you hear back from anyone on the committee, please send us their response.
Chairman Cushing, 926-2737, [email protected] Daryl Abbas, 560-1929 [email protected] John Bordenet, 352-0680 [email protected] John Burt, 624-5084 [email protected] Dennis Fields, 528-6224 [email protected] Dennis Green, 234-7776 [email protected] Linda Harriott-Gathright, 880-4537 [email protected] Jody McNally, 330-7655 [email protected] David Meuse, [email protected] Nancy Murphy, 424-0254 [email protected] Ray Newman, 880-8973 [email protected] Andrew O'Hearne, 558-1038 [email protected] Linn Opderbecke, 742-4119 [email protected] Laura Pantelakos, 436-2148 [email protected] Julie Radhakrishnan, 321-1965 [email protected] Beth Rodd, 938-2692 [email protected] Sandy Swinburne, 876-4173 [email protected] Dave Testerman, 320-9524 [email protected] Scott Wallace, [email protected] David Welch, 642-4402
During the summer we do not send as many emails as we do when the Legislature is in session. However, our anti-gun elected officials are beginning to reveal their 2020 agenda and we will have a lot of work to do this winter!
We now know that the Legislature is pushing more than 15 anti-gun bills for the 2020 legislative session, but before we can work on defeating next years bills, we have one remaining 2019 bill that was kept alive in committee that still needs to be stopped.
HB687-’Red Flag’ Gun Confiscation is scheduled for a full committee work session on 10/23 and a full committee vote on October 30th at 10:00am in room 204 of the Legislative Office Building. While citizens are not allowed to speak at these meetings, a room full of second amendment supporters speaks volumes.
If you remember, in 2014 under a Democratic Majority we were able to stop the last anti-gun bill, ‘Sell a gun to a friend, go to jail’, HB1589, even when the committee was made up of a majority of rabid anti-gunners. We did this by having our members there during these sessions. We had a number of members present with video cameras, and stickers making it clear that their behavior would be exposed.
We need you there! Consider video taping their actions and votes on your phone, then share their anti-gun antics with all of your pro-gun friends. Encourage your friends to pass it along to their pro-gun friends. Thus making sure that the legislators know that the public is watching their every move and that citizens will remember in November 2020 how they voted.
Many of these anti-gun legislators are like cockroaches. They do their dirty work in the dark, hoping that no one is watching and scurry away when exposed to the light of day. It is time to shine a light on their anti-gun actions and the best way to do this is to do this is to show up with a video camera, tablet or a phone and take lots of photos and video and share them on social media. Let’s make sure every gun owner in NH is aware of their actions, especially in their Districts.
We only need people sacrifice their time the morning of 10/30. The Executive session (The session where the legislators actually vote) is scheduled for 10:00am. The meeting is expected to be over by 11am. Just your presence, looking them straight in the face along with the fear of being exposed on social media, will make them think twice about the political cost for pushing a radical anti-gun bill.
While you are in Concord, if time permits, stop by the Governor’s office and thank him for vetoing four anti-gun bills earlier this year.

Folks really need to show up to demonstrate opposition to the bill and show the governor that he needs to veto this mess with extreme prejudice

But you have done them. Do you live under a rock?[laugh2] Unless you buy all your guns used from the back of van down by the river. You filled out a 4473
Nope. All of my guns, private and dealer purchased, went bye-bye when I had to file bankruptcy. If I ever have enough money to buy another one (very unlikely given the way my life is going) it will be only via private sale.

Motion to ITL fails. yes=9, no=11
Which means the bill goes to the house floor with NO recommendation at all because the previous vote was 10-10 dead lock

This bill will more than likely be voted on first thing in Jan......we need to monitor it for shenanigans and urge Gov Sununu to veto it

Looked like there was good turn out against the bill.....loved the posters

Was hilarious when one of the lefties in the back became unhinges and started screaming hysterically, tore up her sign and stormed out/pushed her way out thru the crowd off folks that were mostly behaving like adults
