Last month, Nicole Hockley and Mark Barden traveled to New Hampshire to advocate for legislation that would require criminal background checks for all commercial sales and transfers, preventing dangerous criminals from purchasing firearms online and at gun shows.
In a positive shift, the bill made it out of committee and to the floor for a full house vote. While the New Hampshire House ultimately failed to pass this bill, this represents a major advance in the conversation on gun safety in New Hampshire.
We're disappointed by this setback, but very encouraged by the incredible volume of our supporters' voices dedicated to protecting our communities.
We will continue to work side by side with Granite State Progress, New Castle Promise and the New Hampshire legislature to close the background check loophole and help protect the people of New Hampshire and neighboring states.
