by Steve MacDonald April 3, 2017

At every opportunity, New Hampshire Democrats and the anti-gun lobby sell their corrupted wares under a banner that increasingly reads “New Hampshire blah blah blah support background checks.” This marketing strategy is meant to paint with a broad brush the idea that a lot of us agree on the need for background checks for firearm […]

Email Doodlings – Orlando and Islamic Jihad

by Skip June 13, 2016

As regular readers may have noticed, my rate of posting has plummeted over the last month or so and when I have been able to, the post is rather short or just pointing out what someone else has said.  Perhaps there will come a time to explain but given what happened this morning in Orlando, I […]

Any woman in Vermont legally allowed to carry a firearm under federal law can carry concealed without a permit.  This means that no man ever really knows if she is armed. Does that matter?  It does to women in Vermont. Since the year 2000 there are an average of 68% fewer rapes per 100,000 citizens […]

Democrat House Rep Renny Cushing recently made news for proposing California-like sexual consent legislation that would place police (next to the IRS – thank you Obama-Care) in your bedroom.  Fore-play would be expanded to include teams of support staff bearing documents with a commensurate number of notaries to ensure that every aspect of intimate contact […]

I’m with Stupid. Yeah, He’s a Liberal.

by Tom April 12, 2014

So, I took a little stroll down to Nashua City Hall today because I heard some moonbats were planning a little anti-gun protest. I arrived with some homemade handouts displaying some 2012 CDC data, proving how low gun violence actually is in this country, when compared to dangers such as Cancer and Heart Disease (combined, responsible […]

Thumbnail image for Where Is the NH Democrat Party Outrage Over A Gun-Running State Senator? [Updated]

Democrats hate it when people not employed by the state have firearms.  New Hampshire Democrats are no different.  Every policy decision on guns leads toward the accumulation of force in the hands of bureaucrats and lawmakers at the expense of regular citizens.  (See also: peasants.)  So you’d think that a story about a state Senator, […]

The New Hampshire House Criminal Justice and Public Safety committee, in an act of what I can only imagine is revenge, are taking Rep JR Hoell’s HB 1264 and changing it into a study commission on gun violence.    That’s the commission the full house rejected when HB 1589 was amended to do just that. “The […]

The process of ending HB 1589 began with the vote to amend the bill and turn it into a committee to…  study the correlation between current New Hampshire law and the low violent crime rate in this state.

The Progressive Background Check Bill – HB 1589 is Dead!

by Steve MacDonald February 12, 2014

HB1589, which would have added background checks to our background checks, failed in the NH House today. This is all due to the hard work of Grassroots activists, and we’d like to extend our thanks to them and the legislators who voted to kill this. And I’d like to give a special thanks to Minnesota […]

Additional Background Checks for NH? Put Up or Shut Up!

by Steve MacDonald July 11, 2013

I wanted to remind everyone that they need to ask every New Hampshire Democrat, in office or running for elected office, if they will be insisting on state legislation that adds another layer of background checks for legal gun purchases in the Granite State?  This should be a key element of their policy agendas.  And […]

The local New Hampshire franchise of the Minnesota based radical left wing group Progress Now is living up to its mission statement;  24/7/365 progressive activism.  First it’s Newtown victims, then it is the Bloomberg bus, and now they’ve dragged Gabby Giffords to the Granite State in the latest in their series of high-profile efforts to […]

Are NH Democrats just Making Stuff Up about Background Checks?

by Steve MacDonald May 5, 2013

There are more lies about background checks coming from the New Hampshire Democrat Party than truths and no polling can possibly explain the disparity unless the polls are flawed, skewed, or just made up. Ninety percent of New Hampshire citizens cannot possibly be in favor of  Manchin Toomey background checks when less than 90% of […]

NH Democrats Focused on The Economy

Hah!  No they’re not.  If that were true they wouldn’t be blowing out the state budget and growing spending five times faster than estimated growth. Democrats.  Don’t you love them? What they are actually focused on is off-shoring (that’s a metaphor) their own responsibility for managing our sovereign state.  Instead of standing up and running on the Democrat party […]
