ICYMI: Opposition to Radical GOP Gun Bill Continues to Grow
Republican Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard Speaks Out Against Bill Eliminating Local Licensing Process to Carry Concealed Weapons
Public Policy Polling Finds 71% of Granite Staters Oppose Radical GOP Gun Bill
Concord, N.H. – As the New Hampshire House prepares to vote Wednesday on a bill eliminating the local licensing process to carry concealed weapons, opposition to the radical Republican gun bill continues to grow.
The Concord Monitor reported that Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard, a Republican who endorsed Mitt Romney and canoed with Scott Brown, spoke out in favor of keeping the current licensing process. Hilliard said, “The word suitable, it does seem somewhat ambiguous, but it gives some latitude we should respect… The statute for approving them is clear.”
The Union Leader also reported “Public Policy Polling found 71 percent of those surveyed oppose repealing the concealed weapon permit requirement, while 23 favor repeal.”
The measure is not only opposed by the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police, but has also been opposed by several prominent New Hampshire Republicans, including then-Senator Ted Gatsas, who voted against SB 454, a comparable 2004 bill.
