So, Laconia Daily Sun reporter Mike Kitch is being called onto the carpet – again?

by Skip March 26, 2013

So what is NH doing to lure these now “orphaned” 2nd Amendment Companies?

by Skip March 26, 2013

You know, we have SigSauer based here in NH.  Sturm Ruger, too, Heckler & Koch as well.  Well known manufacturers – a solid knowledge base and familiarity with firearms manufacturing.  I have been wondering, with Democrat onslaught in various States of restricting the civilian populations’ access to and use of small arms they deem “scary” […]
