SB 492 – Prohibiting Bump Stocks

From our friends at MOMS DEMAND ACTION NH:

A bill has been proposed that would ban bump stocks in New Hampshire.  Moms Demand Action supports this bill and we need our members to voice their support for this common sense gun safety measure as well.  You can make your voice heard at the State House quickly and easily by emailing the Judiciary Committee today.

Send your emails to the Senate Judiciary Committee members: Sharon.Carson@leg.state.nh.us, Bette.Lasky@leg.state.nh.us, Harold.French@leg.state.nh.us, Katherine.Lehmann@leg.state.nh.us, Martha.Hennessey@leg.state.nh.us

Or Call: The Judiciary Committee in Concord at 603-271-3092

Emails should include “Support SB 492 Prohibiting Bump Stocks” in the subject line and in the body of your message.  Please remember to include your name and town in your email along with a brief reason why you think banning bump stocks is a good idea. 

Here are some of the reasons why Moms Demand Action is supporting this bill:

  • Last year, 58 people died and 500 more were injured in the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.  The shooter had used a bump stock device, effectively turning his rifle into a machine gun.  Machine guns have been tightly regulated under federal law since the 1930’s, however, there are no regulations associated with bump stocks.
  • This bill would ban the sale and possession of any “multiburst trigger activator”, offering a comprehensive solution by focusing on the outcome (increasing rates of fire) rather than naming specific devices or technical features.
  • This bill contains reasonable exceptions for law enforcement agencies.

It only takes a few minutes to write an email supporting this bill and it can make a difference!  The more people who speak up the better the chances are for passing this common sense legislation here in New Hampshire. 

Thank you for your activism on this very important issue!
