HB 307 would block all regulation of firearms and knives in municipal, school district, and public college and university buildings, and property. The bill would also add new punitive measures to intimidate and punish local communities and districts that establish or enforce common sense firearms and knives regulations.
School districts that tried to prevent parents, teachers, staff, or visitors from openly carrying or bringing hidden, loaded guns into schools would be subject to the same punitive measures as other localities. Reminder: New Hampshire already has a preemption law, which broadly prohibits local municipalities and school districts from enacting common-sense firearms regulations. This bill takes that a step further and intimidates local officials from doing anything regarding guns in our high traffic public spaces or learning environments.
If you believe, like we do, that New Hampshire’s public educational spaces should be reserved for learning in a safe environment please take one minute and visit the website to register your opposition to HB 307
