Unique Gun Control Vote in Concord next week

We couldn’t be there in person for those strong and determined high schoolers from Parkland, Florida that had us crying with them in sorrow, but then, acting on their grief, had us cheering.  Let’s stand with them next week.

On Tuesday, March 6th during the House session, there will be a motion made on the Floor to suspend House Rules.  The motion will be made by Representative Stephen Shurtleff and Representative Lee Oxenham.

 They will be attempting to allow a bill to be drafted to prohibit the sale or possession of bump stocks (multiburst trigger activator) in NH and to prohibit the sale of all firearms to anyone under the age of 21 years.

The motion will require a 2/3rds vote to Suspend the Rules, to allow the late drafting, introduction, referral to committee and reporting from the committee – all in one motion.

IF they’re able to suspend the Rules, the bill can then be immediately drafted and available the next day, Wednesday, March 7th for a House vote. The bill will only need a majority vote to pass.

As you can see, the big push will be the required 2/3rds vote to allow the suspension of House Rules.

The Huddle can help with this unique opportunity by calling as many reps as we can.   If you can call and/ or email let’s focus on Rockingham County.
