Release: Statement on Hassan's Veto of SB 116
(July 6, 2015) - This afternoon, Governor Maggie Hassan vetoed SB 116, a bipartisan bill that would have eliminated the license requirement to conceal firearms.
Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:
"Governor Maggie Hassan's veto of SB 116 was yet another example of our state's chief executive ignoring New Hampshire values and embracing liberal special interests simply for the benefit of her own political career. To say we are disappointed in her actions is an understatement, but given her continuous record of stonewalling bipartisan legislation to keep Washington liberals happy, we are not surprised.
"Vetoing this bipartisan bill does nothing more than support Second Amendment restrictions on those that obey the law. While extreme out-of-state donors might be cheering her actions, law abiding Granite Staters are the ones who suffer."
