Sununu Flops at NRA Annual Forum
CONCORD, NH — Today, Governor Chris Sununu gave a speech at the NRA’s annual leadership forum. Clearly, attendees weren’t very riveted by his speech.
In response, NHDP spokesperson Monica Venzke released the following statement:
“Sununu failed yet again to impress a crowd of far-right extremists. From vetoing multiple pieces of legislation that would protect the lives of Granite Staters to signing some of the most egregious anti-gun safety legislation in the country, Sununu has proven that he will prioritize his celebrity status over his constituents any day — and it isn’t even working.”
Though his speech was lackluster, his record on gun safety is even worse —
Sununu has an “A” rating from the NRA.
Yesterday all schools in Portsmouth were closed due to a credible threat of gun violence. Sununu referred to this as “the new normal.”
The very first bill Sununu signed into law as governor was anti-gun safety legislation that the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police called “dangerous.”
He has vetoed three separate pieces of gun safety legislation and signed legislation that repealed licensing requirements on carrying a concealed firearm.
After the tragic mass shooting in Uvalde, where 19 children and two teachers were murdered by a gunman, Sununu said that we ‘aren’t looking to make any changes in firearms policy.’
On the one month anniversary of that day, he signed a bill blocking any federal law or executive order regarding gun safety in New Hampshire.
