Guns to Gardens provides an opportunity for NH residents to remove unwanted firearms from circulation. More people understand that having a firearm in the home can be dangerous, especially with young children and teens in the house.

New Hampshire state law prohibits law enforcement from destroying firearms which come into their possession and must either store the firearms or sell them back out on the market. 

“Many thanks to our friends at States United for the wonderful states gathering in December that led to the conversation that sparked this event!” ~ Zandra Rice Hawkins, Executive Director GunSense NH

Guns to Gardens has hosted events at our affiliates in Utah, Maine and New Mexico.

Melody Vaccaro, executive director of Nebraskans Against Gun Violence was penalized with a lifetime ban from the NE State Capitol for yelling “shame” at members of the Legislature after a final reading vote on permit-less carry bill.

The excessive ban was recognized as an overreach and the NE State Patrol rescinded the sanction less than a week later.
