Three Words

Good for them.

West Lebanon — The New Hampshire Association of Police Chiefs is not backing down from its plan to raffle 31 firearms, including some semi-automatic weapons, during a May fundraising event in Newport, despite criticism it has received in recent days.

In an open letter posted on the association’s website this week, Executive Director Paul Donovan, stressing that the event is “legal,” said his group has coordinated with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office and warned entrants that they will have to follow all laws governing gun ownership.

“While this raffle falls on the heels of the recent tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police extends their deepest sympathies to the families and first responders,” wrote Donovan, the police chief of Salem. “New Hampshire Chiefs of Police feel the issues with these tragic shootings are ones that are contrary to lawful and responsible gun ownership. We believe in and support the Second Amendment, and encourage education in the area of firearms safety.”
