New Hampshire: “Universal” Background Check Bill Scheduled for Committee Hearing Tomorrow

Tomorrow, House Bill 201, a bill which would require expanded background checks for all firearm sales and transfers, is scheduled for a hearing in the House Criminal Justice Committee at 1:00 p.m. in LOB Room 204.  If enacted, HB 201 would require individuals to appear before a licensed firearm dealer to request a criminal background check prior to transferring a firearm, absent limited and vague exceptions.  The firearm dealer would also be required to create a record of each sale.  This flawed legislation is being pushed by an out-of-state anti-gun group who is trying to impose their misguided policies on the law-abiding gun owners of New Hampshire.
