A promise kept – and Joseph Plaia and Zandra Rice-Hawkins go on lying about SB12 – Part 5. And then there’s the Police Chiefs

by Skip February 28, 2017

F.U.D Factor – Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt.  The Police Chief’s Association here in NH has made all too clear that they hate the idea that law abiding citizens no longer have to come before them on bended knee to ask permission to wear a coat over a gun worn at one’s hip.  Here, Laconia Police […]

by Skip February 25, 2017

“No-compromise gun activists are building momentum for state laws that allow firearms owners to bring their weapons into public spaces without securing the government permits…”.  They just can’t STAND to say “Constitutional” – always the slag at “gun activists”.  Who, pretty much, are always resorting to the Constitution, natch!

A promise kept – and Joseph Plaia and Zandra Rice-Hawkins go on lying about SB12 – Part 1

by Skip February 22, 2017

Congratulations to Governor Sununu for doing something that a lot of politicians don’t do – a campaign promise kept by signing NH’s new Constitutional Carry law (SB12) that repealed a decades old discriminatory law.  However, sore losers gotta hate – and lie.  It is in their blood and in their souls.  F’rinstance, one would think […]

Zandra Rice-Hawkins: Master purveyor of FUD towards the Second Amendment

by Skip February 13, 2017

FUD – Fear, uncertainty, and doubt.  Coming from Zandra Rice-Hawkins (our favorite cereal, Rice-Crispies) of Granite State Progress (a totally out of state funded entity), I tend to more call it lying.  She hates guns because this Statist loves Government – and it is clear from her history, as we all have said before, she […]

Zandra Rice-Hawkins – leaving out the truth again.

by Skip February 5, 2017

A deliberate lie by omission, IMHO.  Here in NH, SB 12 (e.g., “Constitutional Carry”) is an anti-discriminatory law that would allow LAW ABIDING citizens, to lawfully conceal a firearm without the obligatory “Nanny Government, may I?”. Eleven States already have this in place – they TRUST their LAW ABIDING citizens to be responsible.  Vermont does, […]

Blogline of the Day – yep, we’re a monotonous bunch

by Skip March 2, 2016

From the beginning, this vandalism and arson incident has seemed… odd. Open carry supporters are sometimes acerbic, and sometimes get arrested in incidents of civil disobedience, but with one notable exception, they are typically monotonously law-abiding. Actually, living here in NH, open carry is no big deal – if you can own a firearm, you […]
