Take Action to Keep Guns Out of NH Schools – Support HB 564, Gun Free Schools

The federal Gun Free Schools Act prohibits students from bringing firearms into schools, and the Gun Free Schools Zone Act prohibits all other persons unless they are licensed by the state to carry a firearm. But New Hampshire has major gaps in our state law that has left school districts and police departments in murky water on enforcement and jeopardizes safe spaces for our children to learn and grow. HB 564 is a bill in the State Legislature to clarify statewide gun free school zones in New Hampshire. It is important for elected officials to take action to ensure safety for our students and educators. Please sign the petition urging Governor Sununu and the state legislature to support gun free schools.
