    Constitutional carry passes legislature, veto expected from Demonrat

    https://www.nraila.org/articles/2015...ues-to-advance


    I vote for few enough Republicans. What species of ignoramus would ever vote for a Demonrat?

    I don't "need" to openly carry a handgun or own an "assault weapon" any more than Rosa Parks needed a seat on the bus.

    NH has 362 state legislators?

    I think I see the problem. Or, one of them anyway.

    NH has 400 state representatives, and 24 state senators.

    That's not a bug, it's a feature. We have the most representative legislature in the world, with one rep for roughly every 3,300 residents. They make $100 per year to serve.

    I have my state rep among my Facebook friends, on my phone contacts list, and bumped into him at the local convenience store yesterday. That's how it should be, not like the professional politicians in most state houses.

    Absolutely. I think the size of the US House of Representatives should be much larger (coupled with a large cut in pay and term limits as well).

    Suggestion

    I just sent an email to the Governor of NH asking her to reconsider her position on "constitutional carry." If any of you also do that, please remind her that Vermont (next door) has had CC for decades, and nothing negative has happened there.

    Vetoed by the governor? Recall her for violating her oath of office. In the meantime you can't veto a right a person already has

    From first posted link: New Hampshire House of Representatives passed NRA-backed Right-to-Carry reform legislation by a 212-150 vote. [original bill passage vote]

    That would be slightly short of the need to over-ride the veto, yes? Catch any switchers to get over the hump?

    Need to get 52 or more critters to switch their vote to override the veto.

    So threaten them with recall votes. Worked in CO.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    Do they have a recall option in that state? All state specific ... mine, none.

    Not sure but probably not feasible. There's an election next year, get a Governor in who'll sign this and keep enough legislators who voted for this. Done deal.

    The House voted to override. The Senate did not, voting 14-10 along party lines in favor of overturning.
