Lancaster Agway owner blasts House bill calling for universal gun registration
Martin's sign warns about House Bill 1589, which would require universal background checks in New Hampshire for all gun sales. The bill is in the House's Commerce and Consumer Affairs Committee.
"I'm right there with everybody about what happened at Sandy Hook, but I just don't believe that going through this is going to solve it," said Martin. "I think for some people, it (HB 1589) is a goody feeling that we did something."
Martin concedes that while he doesn't know exactly how firearms can be kept out of the possession of people who shouldn't have them, he's more certain that placing limitations on law-abiding citizens will not have the result that HB 1589's supporters hope for.
Recovering from a recent accident, Martin said he hasn't been in his store much lately and, therefore, has only received some reaction, "not a whole lot," from his sign.
