David, the bill had a hearing, and the committee voted along party lines (11-9) to recommend it as Ought to Pass. The full House will vote on the bill next week.

Carol, great question — yes. It is really important for State Reps to hear from people between now and (most likely) Thursday of next week. It would also be good to reach out early to Gov. Chris Sununu and State Senators.

If this passes the House, the next step is a public hearing in the Senate.

Jeffrey, I don't think it would have much of an impact on zoning ordinances and regulations, because it does allow continued regulation via zoning, so long as it does not treat gun stores differently from other retail stores. On your second question, yes, it is unusual for the legislature to issue that kind of directive.
