HB1555: This bill removes the penalty for carrying a loaded firearm for self defense in a state game refuge. (Hearing: Tuesday, 31-Jan-2012 @ 10:15 A.M. LOB Rm 307, HOUSE FISH AND GAME AND MARINE RESOURCES)
HB1337: There is a separation of duties and powers between Conservation Officers and police employees, and this bill clarifies those distinctions. (Hearing: Tuesday, 31-Jan-2012 @ 1:00 P.M. LOB Rm 307, HOUSE FISH AND GAME AND MARINE RESOURCES)
HB1690: This bill prohibits the use of cell phone data extraction devices by law enforcement agencies. This relates to firearms ownership, possession and use, because law enforcement has been known to search through phones looking for pictures and other info relating to shooting and the firearms community, with an eye towards prosecution, i.e. ‘fishing expeditions’. (Hearing: Tuesday, 31-Jan-2012 @ 2:30 P.M. LOB Rm 204, HOUSE CRIMINAL JUSTICE AND PUBLIC SAFETY)
HB1475: This bill provides that no state official shall enforce any provision of an interstate compact, which is based on another state’s law or rule, which has not been specifically approved by the New Hampshire legislature. The short version: Law enforcement cannot prosecute you for violating the laws of another state unless the NH legislature has also passed those laws. (Hearing: Tuesday, 31-Jan-2012 @ 3:00 P.M. LOB Rm 206, HOUSE CONSTITUTIONAL REVIEW & STATUTORY RECODIFICATION)
