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.”
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.
