Democrats in the state Senate passed three bills Thursday they contend will reduce gun violence in New Hampshire.

The first bill would implement mandatory background checks on nearly all sales. An exemption is made for transfers of weapons between immediate family members. The second bill would impose a three-day waiting period on commercial gun purchases.

The third measure would ban guns on school campuses. Police officers, school resource officers and individuals approved by the district’s school boards would be the only exceptions. An amendment to the bill says that schools must hold public forums designed to gauge student feedback before granting special gun-carrying permission.
