House kills gun background checks bill


CONCORD – Most were expecting an old-time gun duel with proponents and opponents facing off over House Bill 1589 to require background checks for all commercial sales of firearms.

However, the guns fired blanks and the House Wednesday spent an hour-and-a-half in parliamentary maneuvering before finally killing the bill on a 242-118 vote.
