Concord, NH- Chairman of the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee Terry Roy (R-Deerfield) released the following statement after the House defeated several bills meant to trample on Granite Staters’ Second Amendment rights.
“New Hampshire has a proud history of responsible gun ownership. While House Democrats voted to enforce arbitrary red flag laws and to allow Joe Biden to unilaterally chip away at the Second Amendment with Executive Orders, the Republican position has not changed. Today Republicans stood strong in support of our Second Amendment rights and will continue to ensure that the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
“None of the bills they voted to pass would reduce the risk of a shooting. If these bills do not accomplish that goal, then the intention is clear: Democrats want to take guns away from and disarm law-abiding citizens.”
