A day before the one-year anniversary of the deadly school shooting in Parkland, Florida, New Hampshire lawmakers are hoping to take advantage of a Democratic-controlled legislature to move ahead with gun control legislation that would allow school districts to create gun-free zones.

But some opponents say creating such zones make schools a target for shooters.

The gun control bills were up for a hearing Wednesday. In addition to the gun-free zones bill, another bill would require background checks for commercial gun sales while one would create a waiting period of seven business days between the purchase and delivery of a firearm.
