NH:Gun Control: The truth Democrats won’t tell Granite Staters about HB 1589
Manchester Political Buzz Examiner ^ | 10 February, 2013 | Kimberly Morin

The New Hampshire House could be voting on HB 1589 this Wednesday. This is a gun control bill that was written by out-of-state gun control groups as admitted by Democrat Representative Butler in sub-committee (see the video by Ken Park Jr.). There are no gun crime issues in the Granite State. As a matter of fact, New Hampshire has some of the lowest gun crime in the country – far lower than neighboring Massachusetts which has draconian gun laws in place. Democrats are pushing this unnecessary gun control bill based on outrageous lies. The following shreds some of their most egregious claims with the facts. All HB 1589 will do is turn law-abiding citizens into felons and could lead to a gun registry as many opponents fear. Not one criminal will be stopped by this law, not one. Because criminals don't obey gun laws.

The claims below are Democrats ‘reasons’ for pushing more gun control in New Hampshire (directly taken from the bill). Remember, they did not write this bill but they are supporting it. It is clear they also didn’t bother to research any of claims because they are all based on lies or statistics that do not apply to New Hampshire:

CLAIM: Federal law requires anyone “engage[d] in the business” of selling firearms to obtain a federal firearms license. However, many individuals sell firearms without such a license. In fact, it has been estimated that 40 percent of all firearms are sold in the United States by unlicensed people.

The entire idea of "Background Checks" is a failed one. The whole system should be junked instead of attempting to make all private sales illegal, unless registered with the government.

New Hampshire has a very low crime rate, but facts do not matter to those who want the citizenry disarmed. If this is moving in New Hampshire, there must be some pretty good money behind it.

The house that these reps will be voting on this is filled by reps who carry their guns into that house! I don’t think it will pass.

We all need to get the names of these traitors to their elected offices and make them famous every other November.

I still have my list of Colorado’s traitors from last year and am working on this year’s list:

“It will never get passed the senate .”

Perhaps. I hope that you are correct.

How did it ever get out of committee?
