Fort Constitution Arms Collectors
Pro-Gun New Hampshire's affiliate organization, Fort Constitution Arms Collectors, meets once a month. Those joining FCAC also become members of PGNH, and PGNH members receive a $20 discount on the initiation fee when they join FCAC. FCAC will hold its fifth semi-annual gun show in Concord on Saturday, March 15, 2014. See www.armscollectors.org.
Pro-Gun Friday radio show
Attorney Evan Nappen, PGNH General Counsel, is on the radio, with live audio on the internet, every Friday morning from 11:05 to 11:30 a.m. Click here for details.
Click here to see a list of anti-gun places and products to boycott, because supporting them supports gun control. Remind people that there's plenty of proof that so-called "gun free zones" are invitations to muggers, rapists, and deranged mass killers.

Pro-Gun New Hampshire is a statewide membership organization that protects Second Amendment rights within the state of New Hampshire. With a mature leadership of current and former state senators and representatives, police chiefs, and others respected by the legislature, we influence state legislation through the personal efforts and honorable conduct of our leadership and members. WE ARE YOUR VOICE IN THE LEGISLATURE on gun laws. We hope that every pro-gun-rights person in the state will join PGNH, even if they belong to other groups as well; it's OK to get information from, and add your voice through, more than one channel.

Pro-Gun New Hampshire had a successful day recruiting new members at the Fort Constitution Arms Collectors Fall Gun Show last Saturday, November 16. (F.C.A.C. is PGNH's affiliate organization; see the sidebar at the left side of this website's home page.)
Next weekend, November 23 and 24, PGNH will have a table at the Northeast Expositions gun show at the Nashua Radisson Tara hotel (formerly the Sheraton Tara), the "castle" visible from Route 3 near the Mass. border. See www.NHgunshow.com.

Rep. Wendy Piper (D - Enfield) has withdrawn her LSR (Legislative Service Request, the precursor of a bill) "relative to seizure of firearms of a person posing a risk of imminent personal injury to self or others." This was the bill urged by Richard Crate, police chief of Enfield, as described in the article we posted here on the Pro-Gun New Hampshire website on November 3.
Her message to Enfield residents said she withdrew it "due to lack of bipartisan co-sponsorship," meaning that no Republican state rep would touch it. We thank our Council of Advisors, consisting largely of current and former state legislators, for this result.

On Monday, November 4, 2013, at 8:15 a.m., radio station WNTK, 99.7 FM, will broadcast an interview with Richard Crate, Chief of Police of Enfield, NH, about a bill that he's asked state representative Wendy Piper to sponsor. Although the text of the bill isn't yet available, the LSR (Legislative Service Request) is titled "relative to the seizure of firearms from a person posing a risk of imminent personal injury to self or others."
The bill is discussed in a recent Associated Press article (see, for example, http://www.seacoastonline.com/articles/20131028-NEWS-310280319). Note the following excerpts:

Once again -- this time several months late -- another benighted anti-rights voter from New Jersey complains about our August 1 article (scroll down) investigating the Second Amendment position of potential Republican Presidential candidate Chris Christie, governor of New Jersey.
This is a wake-up call. If Eddie Rivera is typical of half the voters in this country, we better saddle up and get busy educating those who aren't paying attention, and making sure that every pro-rights, pro-liberty person we know VOTES!
Meanwhile, does anyone care to talk some sense into this poor soul?
Here's his message, misspellings and all.

Yesterday, October 16, 2013, the Nashua Telegraph newspaper printed a story about a New Hampshire gas station clerk who was fired for defending himself against an armed robber by displaying (but not firing) his pistol. The owner of the Nashua Shell gas station, Nouria Energy, fired him because of its anti-gun policy. We've added a list of Nouria Energy New Hampshire store locations to our boycott list, linked on the left side-column of the home page of our Pro-Gun New Hampshire website. See http://www.nouriaenergy.com/store-locator.html for a current list of their store locations. (In New Hampshire, they own 26 Shell stations, two Irving stations, one Gulf station, and one Lil Mart -- plus several Shell stations in Massachusetts, one in Rhode Island, and several Lil Mart stores in Maine. Although they own a lot of Shell stations in NH, all Shell stations aren't necessarily owned by the same company).

A benefit of membership in Pro-Gun New Hampshire is the right to participate in our generous gun raffles; we try always to have at least two raffles in play. See the "PGNH GUN RAFFLES" block at the top of the left-hand side column on the home page of this website for detailed description of the raffle prizes.
On Saturday, October 12, 2013, we completed the raffle for a Ruger LC9 9mm pistol, plus ammunition, and drew a winner at the Manchester gun show. The raffle winner is a PGNH member from Francestown. NH. As soon as that winner was drawn, we began a new raffle for another Ruger LC9, but this one previously-owned, and with a second magazine, plus ammo.

Please see the article posted here yesterday:
The alert from the Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs asks its members to contact Earl Sweeney, the Assistant Commissioner of the NH Department of Safety, about last July's change in the Department of Safety's Administrative Rules, which now require that an applicant for a NH non-resident concealed carry license must have a carry license from his home state (instead of from "any" state) -- something nearly impossible in New Jersey and a few other anti-gun states that almost never issue concealed carry licenses or permits. To respond to such contact messages, Mr. Sweeney has written the following letter (converted here into the standard "posting" format dictated by the software that runs this website, which includes his signature rendered as text).

The Association of New Jersey Rifle and Pistol Clubs -- the official NRA state affiliate organization for New Jersey (and whose Executive Director is a member of the NRA Board of Directors) -- sent the following alert to its members today:
