    Anti-Gun Legislation Looming in New Hampshire Senate

    http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Read.aspx?ID=2639

    Senate Bill 44, sponsored by Senator Peter Burling (D-5), and Representatives Lee Hammond (D-Graf 11) and John Tholl (R-Coos 2), seeks to change the concealed carry licensing statute to make it easier for the issuing authority to deny a license. Further, the bill raises the standard by which attorney fees may be awarded in a lawsuit against an issuing authority for a violation of the licensing law to “gross negligence or malice,” and removes the personal liability of the issuing officer. This legislation opens the door for more license-issuance problems in New Hampshire.

    This legislation is a solution looking for a problem!

    Hard to believe they wouldn't have sovereign immunity in the first place.

    Shouldn't the public be very wary any time the government tries to protect itself for being sued if it should screw up?!

    Members of the public will be all happy that they're gonna make it harder to get a license to carry, and they should also wonder what effect it might have on the innocent public if the licensing authority screws up, grants a license it shouldn't have, and the dude goes and kills someone. Sounds like the anti-gunners will have to both love and hate this one.
