Concord, N.H. - In Somersworth High School Principal John Shea's letter to Seacoast Online, he gave Governor Sununu an "F" on student safety. Sununu has failed to act to implement common sense gun control in the wake of Parkland and Santa Fe, instead saying he was happy with New Hampshire's gun laws "as is" (some of the most relaxed gun laws in the country). In an interview with NHPR, Sununu defended AR-15s, supported the idea that students should be able to carry guns on cam
Concord, N.H. - Sununu's NHGOP celebrates their backward priorities behind closed doors Today, the New Hampshire Republican Party held a closed-door convention, mirroring the erosion of press access the Trump's administration has sadly become famous for in the last year and a half. While Governor Sununu's NHGOP has chosen to keep their business -- the people's business -- a secret, their radical record & over-the-top rhetoric have made New Hampshire Republican priorities quit
Concord, N.H. - Today, Vice President Pence came to New Hampshire to raise money for Governor Chris Sununu, one of just four governors he is publicly campaigning for in 2018. It's no wonder Sununu has earned Pence's support, given his 10 visits to the White House in 13 months and blind support for even the most dangerous and boorish behavior of the Trump administration.
NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement:
"In 10 trips to the White House, Governor Sununu h
Concord, N.H. - Today, New Hampshire Republicans voted 14-9 along party lines to kill an amendment to SB 357 that would have allowed individual schools to ban guns. Governor Sununu has repeatedly supported no change to the existing law, which prevents schools from banning guns. High schoolers attended the vote in the New Hampshire Senate gallery while other high schoolers signed a petition in support of the amendment, which was proposed by Democratic Senator Martha Hennessy.
Concord, N.H. - Today, as students in New Hampshire and across the country walked out of their classes to protest the lack of legislative action on guns, the New Hampshire Senate Education Committee voted on party lines to reject Democratic Senator Martha Hennessey's amendment to SB 357 that would give schools the right to ban guns on their campuses.
Following the Parkland shooting, Governor Sununu expressed his supported of letting guns on campus, defended the legality of
Concord, N.H. - The Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence released its annual scorecard for the year 2017, ranking each state on its gun laws. New Hampshire was downgraded from a "D" in 2016 to a "F" in 2017, citing the concealed carry law that Governor Sununu enacted in February 2017, which the Giffords Center describes as "reckless."
New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine, which all have "F" ratings, have higher gun death rates than their New England neighbors, Massachuse
Concord, N.H. - Today, Governor Sununu went on NHPR's The Exchange and faced questions from angry and upset Granite Staters who want to see a change to New Hampshire's gun laws. Sununu refused to offer any New Hampshire solutions to our nation's gun problem, doubling down on his claim that our gun laws are fine "as is."
Since becoming governor, Sununu has signed permit-less concealed carry, ignored a bump stock ban bill, opposed letting schools ban guns, supported students c
Concord, N.H. - One day after 17 children were gunned down at their school in Parkland, Florida, Governor Sununu gave his State of the State speech where he preached about the need for safer schools without once mentioning gun safety. One of Sununu's first legislative priorities when taking office was passing a concealed carry law. Just last week, New Hampshire Republicans blocked a bill that would have banned bump stocks and had previously introduced a bill that would prohib
