Carson opposes legislation that would force gun ranges to close

Concord, NH – Today, the New Hampshire Senate held a public hearing for SB 469, relative to shooting ranges. Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry) issued the following statement:

“It is clear, from the testimony today, that this legislation is unnecessary and would force gun clubs across the state to shutter their ranges,” said Senator Sharon Carson (R-Londonderry). “Gun clubs are important organizations in our communities, offering important firearms safety courses and allowing Granite Staters to use their firearms in a safe environment. New Hampshire is one of the safest states in the nation and our current gun laws are effective as they are.”

“We should not be passing legislation that closes gun ranges; that would make New Hampshire less safe,” Carson added.
