NH GOP - Urgent Second Amendment Issue 

Friend,


Governor Maggie Hassan has threatened to veto bipartisan legislation that would reform New Hampshire concealed carry laws.


Law abiding Granite Staters already have the right to carry, but need to ask permission to carry in their cars, under a jacket, or in a purse. Too often, local officials deny or delay permits for no good reason. This commonsense legislation would address this problem and ensure that Granite Staters have the basic right to self-defense.

 

Maggie's motives are clear - she is trying to cozy up to radical, out of state, big money gun control groups that want to restrict our Second Amendment rights. She is desperate to get her hands on the millions of dollars that gun grabbers like liberal New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg will funnel into her campaign coffers as she plots a run for the United States Senate.

 

Maggie's gun control allies have already spent millions in New Hampshire, and intend to spend even more. Even worse, these discredited groups have held events in our state to push their radical agenda that have honored thugs, murderers and terrorists including the Boston Marathon bomber.

We need your help to fight Maggie's dangerous gun control allies and elect more pro-Second Amendment Republicans in 2016. Please click here to help us by contributing $50, $75 or $100.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jennifer Horn

NHDP - Governor Hassan Stands Up For Law Enforcement & Public Safety

NHGOP’s Radical Gun Bill Wildly Out-Of-Step With New Hampshire

   
Concord, N.H. – After New Hampshire House Republicans passed a radical bill allowing anyone to carry a concealed weapon without a license, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley thanked Governor Hassan for standing up for law enforcement and public safety.
 
“Once again, Republicans in the New Hampshire House and Senate have proven that they’re wildly out-of-step with New Hampshire, passing a radical gun bill over the opposition of law enforcement officers and 71% of Granite Staters,” said New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley. “We thank Governor Hassan for taking a strong stand to support law enforcement and public safety by pledging to veto this radical bill.”   
 
A recent poll from PPP found that 71% of Granite Staters oppose the far-right gun bill, while only 23% support it.
 
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.
 
The Concord Monitor also 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.”

NHGOP SLAMS HASSAN'S CONCEALED CARRY REFORM VETO THREAT

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Governor Hassan's threat to veto bipartisan concealed carry reform legislation:

 

"Law abiding Granite Staters already have the right to carry, but need to ask permission to carry in their cars, under a jacket, or in a purse. Too often, local officials deny or delay permits for no good reason, denying people the basic right to self-defense. This commonsense, bipartisan legislation would address this issue and only apply to New Hampshire residents who already have the right to own or possess firearms. It would not change laws prohibiting criminals from carrying firearms.

 

"Gun control advocates like Governor Hassan want to undermine the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens while criminals continue to ignore gun control laws. It's clear that Governor Hassan is trying to curry favor with radical out-of-state gun control groups who can funnel money into her United States Senate campaign instead of standing up for the rights of New Hampshire gun owners."

Cornerstone - House Keeps New Hampshire Casino Free 

Cornerstone Action

Casino ITL Vote The Right Choice for New Hampshire
CPR Action applauds the New Hampshire House of Representatives on their choice to keep the Granite State casino free. The detriment of a casino will not bring its social and political costs to our state. Our representatives have seen the pitfalls of allowing expanded gambling to corrupt our New Hampshire brand and chosen wisely.
 
Executive Director Bryan McCormack commented, “ This is the right decision for New Hampshire. With the casino over saturation of the northeast, revenues are not what they promise. Likewise, the social costs are far greater than casino advocates suggest . New Hampshire can and will come up with better solutions than the addictive and unsure revenues of a casino.”

NH GOP - Maggie's Hollywood Money!

Friend,

 

It's no secret Maggie Hassan has her eyes on Washington. And she knows if she's going to get there, she'll need all the campaign cash she can get her hands on.

 

Hacked emails between Sony executives and Maggie Hassan posted on Wikileaks provide an unprecedented look at Hassan's cozy relationship with powerful Hollywood elites. In these emails, Hassan lavishes praise on her Tinseltown donors, expressing her gratitude for "the help you provided me in getting me," into the corner office.

 

New Hampshire needs elected officials who will represent working families, not Hollywood. We need leaders who will focus on moving the Granite State forward instead of hobnobbing with left coast liberals.

 

We need your help if we're going to stand a chance against the millions pouring into Hassan's campaign coffers. 

  

Click here to support our efforts to expose the truth behind Hassan's failed record.

 

Thank you for your support.

 

Sincerely,

 

Jennifer Horn
