Jeb Bradley shows us once again that he’s always looking out for his own political skin at the expense of the safety of the people of his district.
In this particular instance, Senator Bradley introduced the bill SB 116 to remove all restrictions to carrying a concealed weapon. We recall very clearly that Senator Bradley was for Northern Pass awhile back as well; that is until the people that will be most effected by it started an embarrassing ruckus. Obviously the Senator need a reminder that the majority of constituents, including gun owners support some regulation of concealed carry.
Does Jeb Bradley need this minority constituency? Is he so deaf, dumb and blind that he can’t see that the majority of people aren’t badgering him about carrying a concealed weapon because well, they have lives to lead and they elected Jeb to make good decisions on their behalf. Unfortunately, once again, he’s failed.
This bill, if passed by the full house will open up all citizens of New Hampshire and visitors to the possibility of a lethal attack by an unhinged person legally carrying a loaded handgun. A loaded handgun, we might add, that no one will have the opportunity to be forewarned about, that no one will have the opportunity or option to get away from; a loaded handgun that within seconds could kill anyone and possibly even multiple persons.
Now that the bill has passed the Senate, we’ll try our best to follow its path and publish information here. Another hearing in the house will be held on this bill and we urge everyone come out against this.
Zandra-Rice Hawkins of Granite State Progress, a state-wide citizen’s political group had this to say:
“Requiring a license to carry a concealed weapon has worked well for New Hampshire for more than 90 years. These licenses are very easy and quick to obtain and do not place an unreasonable burden on law abiding citizens. SB 116 is a radical piece of legislation that jeopardizes public safety. New Hampshire does not require people to have a specific reason to conceal carry but does require that the applicant be a suitable person. This common sense law allows local police departments to deny a license when there is reason to believe a person is a danger to themselves or others. New Hampshire is one of 46 states that currently require a license to carry concealed weapons and we should not weaken our public safety laws now.”

This is what Senator Jeb Bradley has lowered himself to.
