Gun Free New Hampshire House

by Rick Olson

“The D.C. gun ban works – just ask James Brady…”

To follow up on Grokster Steve’s post yesterday…

No gun ban proposed for NH House by Democrats...again

Should it have been a surprise that these six RINO’s voted the way they did? No. We already had hard evidence they could not be counted upon as evidenced by the pre-election grade assigned by the NRA.

Rep. Dennis Fields (R)INO Belknap 4 -Sanbornton; NRA Grade: C

Not necessarily a passing grade. A candidate with a mixed record or positions on gun related issues, who may oppose some pro-gun positions or support some restrictive legislation.

Karel A. Crawford, (R)INO, Carroll 4 – Center Harbor; NRA Grade: ?

“?”Refused to answer the NRA-PVF Candidate Questionnaire, often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners’ and sportsmen’s rights.

Carolyn M. Gargacz, (R)INO, Hillsborough 27 – Hollis; NRA Grade: C+

RINO HISTORY

Not necessarily a passing grade. A candidate with a mixed record or positions on gun related issues, who may oppose some pro-gun positions or support some restrictive legislation.

Priscilla P. Lockwood, (R)INO, Merrimack 9, – Canterbury; NRA Grade: B

RINO HISTORY

A generally pro-gun candidate. However, a “B” candidate may have opposed some pro-gun reform or supported some restrictive legislation in the past.

David H. Kidder, (R)INO, Merrimack 5, – New London; NRA Grade: D

RINO HISTORY

An anti-gun candidate who usually supports restrictive gun control legislation and opposes pro-gun reforms. Regardless of public statements, can usually be counted on to vote wrong on key issues.

Steve Vaillancourt (R)INO, Hillsborough 15, – South Manchester; NRA Grade B+

A generally pro-gun candidate. However, a “B” candidate may have opposed some pro-gun reform or supported some restrictive legislation in the past.

But there is good news…for now. And that good news is that the constitution means something because those who garnered favorable ratings from the NRA honored their grade. Vaillancourt, Lockwood, not so much…

There was no backstabbing.  We actually had an idea how this six would vote. And true to form, they did.

    Any way we can research which of these habitually carry for self defense?

      My guess is none…The only exposure these folks have to guns is the ones they see on TV…like all the liberals making that anti-gun TV commercial…The guns they used to kill other people in their movies. Yeah, those guns.

    I hate RINO’s

    So I assume this means that our legislators will once again be joinin’ in with the kiddos to read “Green Eggs and Ham?” Never mind that “Dr. Seuss in the Statehouse” PREDATES the first gun ban – in other words – NH-NEA ALLOWED KIDS AND GUNS TO MIX ONCE UPON A TIME!!!!!! Hypocrites!

    Rick –
    Given the NRA grading of B+ for Vaillancourt, the RINO label seems an overreach, particularly when other elements of freedom are taken into account. I strongly suspect, and recall when doing so, Steve fairs better than the vast majority of those corralled under the gilded dome. In fact, he may be best qualified for the moniker: Minister of Freedom for the Grate State of New Hamsters.

    Plus, are you sure you want all those mentally unstable pols densely packed into their pens to have immediate access to their bang-bangs :-)
