From the Desk of Chairman Stepanek

Democrats are doing what they do best: using our mental health crisis to push their extreme agenda to restrict our rights to keep and bear arms. Democrats both Nationally and locally will continue to push their agenda at the cost of your rights – it’s time to put a stop to this.

As they took back control in D.C. in January the Democrats made it clear that new gun control legislation was an integral part of their agenda. In early March, H.R. 1446 was introduced to the United States House of Representatives, a bill which imposes erroneous restrictions on the Second Amendment. States like Colorado sadly have the most stringent gun control laws on the books but they unfortunately do nothing to prevent criminals from obtaining firearms. These laws only infringe on law-abiding citizens’ right to self-defense – the very same patriotic citizens who might prevent tragedies. These proposal just move us one step closer to what Democrats have long sought: a national gun owner registry.

It is ironic that the people parroting the phrase “Common Sense Gun Reform” don’t know the first thing about the right to keep and bear arms. Squad Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) was recently quoted as saying, “The trauma of gun violence in our communities is endless. It’s time we abolish the filibuster and pass meaningful gun control legislation – background checks, automatic weapons ban, gun licensing, and so much more.”

No, Congresswoman Pressley, gun violence is not endless and it’s happening mostly in cities run by Democrats. Any firearm owner could tell you that background checks are already in place. Automatic weapons have been banned in the United States for nearly 40 years. They let slip what they’re really after – an end to the filibuster, and free rein to pass whatever legislation they would like.

 Here in New Hampshire, our local Democrats are no different. Just last year they tried to force through a “Red Flag” law which would have allowed an individual’s firearms to be taken by any judge without due process. Thankfully

that bill and other pieces of legislation that infringed on the Second Amendment were vetoed by Governor Chris Sununu. More recently Congressman Chris Pappas has promoted #GunReformNow on twitter, and Ann Kuster has co-sponsored the aforementioned H.R. 1446. If the Democrats have it their way and retake the New Hampshire Legislature in 2022, you can be sure that these radical policies will crop up once more.

 By contrast, New Hampshire Republicans are taking steps to preserve our Second Amendment and Article 2a rights – even against infringements by the Federal government. Earlier this month, Republicans in the New Hampshire Senate proposed Senate Bill 154 which prohibits the enforcement of any Presidential Executive Order which restricts or regulates the right of the people to keep and bear arms. We view our Second Amendment and Article 2a rights not simply as important rights, but fundamental ones.

Can you donate $20, 22, $50, or even $100 today to help us protect the Second Amendment and Article 2a right here in New Hampshire?

 We need to stop the Democrats and their gun grab both in New Hampshire and in D.C. and we need your help to do so. The Democrats are asking for an inch, but they will take a mile as soon as they can. Once your rights are gone, they’re never going to come back. We need your support to fight back against their agenda before it’s too late.

 Regards,

 Stephen Stepanek
NHGOP Chairman

P.S. The Democrats are using any excuse necessary to get what they already wanted – gun control. They are already exploiting the tragedies in Colorado and Georgia to propose sweeping gun-control measures which would never have prevented these acts from happening, and would only serve to harm law-abiding citizens. We need your support to fight back and stop the Democrats’ proposed gun grab.

Over 100 Days of Republican Government
Today we celebrate the over 100 days of Republican government and the incredible successes New Hampshire’s witnessed under conservative leadership!

Concord, NH – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement noting the accomplishments during the first 100 days of New Hampshire’s unified Republican government:

“New Hampshire has a lot to be proud of in terms of the accomplishments our unified Republican government has achieved in the first 100 days since the new legislature was sworn in,” said NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek. “As Governor Chris Sununu makes historic nominations that are confirmed by our new Republican Executive Council, Senate President Chuck Morse and House Speaker Sherm Packard are cutting taxes and protecting the lives of our most vulnerable population. Under the leadership of Governor Chris Sununu, Republicans have been able to protect and expand the New Hampshire Advantage, keeping the state’s tax free legacy intact and putting Granite Staters first.”

“Acknowledging the historic successes achieved under our Republican State Government, Granite Staters can expect continued advancements in legislation and robust leadership through the remainder of their terms — The BEST is yet to come!”

BACKGROUND:

This past cycle we saw an overwhelmingly successful election in the State of New Hampshire. We obtained majorities within the Senate, House and Executive Council, in addition to re-electing Governor Chris Sununu for a third consecutive term. This made it possible for New Hampshire’s state government ‘trifecta’ to achieve some extraordinary feats through their first 100 days in office, including the confirmation of AG MacDonald as Chief Justice to the NH Supreme Court and Ryan Terrell to the State Board of Education. 

New Hampshire Republican Representatives were able to pass the ‘Born Alive Infant Protection Act’ ensuring children who survived abortion procedures would receive the critical care they deserve. Representatives also worked in lockstep with Governor Chris Sununu to safely get our students back in the classrooms, and thanks to the Governor’s executive order, all students have the ability to access in-person learning at least two days a week.

Furthermore, in terms of economic triumphs, residents can also look forward to extensive tax cuts, providing an economic boost to local businesses and residents alike. Under the leadership of Governor Chris Sununu, Republicans have been able to protect and expand the New Hampshire Advantage, keeping the state’s tax free legacy intact and putting Granite Staters first.

Misinformation

There is misinformation being spread about HB544.  It is NOT anti-free speech and NOT racist. Those are Democrat talking points. It is anti-marxist indoctrination (with your tax dollars).
 
An email was sent out by the House Majority Office to the Republican State Representatives. I encourage you to take a look, it is located under the State Representative page.

Thank you,
