    New Hampshire Union Leader editorial supports open carry rights

    http://www.unionleader.com/article/2...ON01/130119613

    SNIP

    If you ride around town with a hunting rifle in the rear window of your pickup truck, are you intimidating your community? Few people would think so. What if you take a walk with a handgun holstered at your side?

    Rep. Delmar Burridge, D-Keene, thinks the person bearing the handgun openly is engaging in a hostile act. Speaking of people who openly bear arms while going to the town clerk's office to pay their taxes, he said, "Why subject public employees to this kind of intimidation?"

    To spare these employees such horrors, he has introduced a bill that would make it illegal to openly carry a firearm in a public place - unless the owner has obtained a concealed carry permit. . . . That's ludicrous."

    . . .

    What is ludicrous is requiring a concealed carry permit for the act of carrying a weapon openly. What in the world is the point? It would not prevent open-carrying, it would just make it inconvenient, which is silly. This is not a bill to protect the people. It is the irrational fear of guns written into a feel-good measure that will make no one safer.

    That's all you have to say. Burridge is a true nutjob, and always has been.

    Our constitution and words from the AG would prevent OC from being illegal. The Sup. Court in NH has ruled that there must be a way for someone without paying a licensing fee to carry a firearm.

    The Attorney General's office has stated: "A persons alarm or annoyance does not override another persons right [to keep and bear arms]".

    Granted it won't stop traitors for trying to take away Our Rights
