    The NH Legislative Facilities Committee voted today to ban firearms in the NH State House.

    I'm working on a press release but here's what it looks like so far:

    This is a Joint Committee, and members are:

    Sylvia Larsen
    Terie Norelli
    Margaret Hassan
    Mary Jane Wallner
    Peter Bragdon
    Sherman Packard
    Lou D'Allesandro
    Marjorie Smith
    Daniel Eaton
    Gene Chandler
    Martha Fuller Clark
    Sheila Roberge

    The Joint Facilities committee just passed by an 8-3 vote (party lines)
    the following regulation on the State House:

    "No person, except for law enforcement personnel in active duty, shall
    carry a firearm or other dangerous or deadly weapon or an explosive,
    openly or concealed, while inside the State House, the Legislative
    Office Building, the Upham Walker House, or any of the underground
    tunnels connected to these buildings. Law enforcement personnel, when
    requested by State House security staff, must produce sufficient
    identification establishing their status as law enforcement personnel."

    Spread this far and wide. After the Democrats got crushed on this issue
    in the legislative process they are passing it through the back door. No
    one seems to know how this will be enforced.

    Start spreading the word to our people...

    Wow, that was a really dumb rule to make. Howwould/could this be enforced? Looks like NH needs a preemption clause that covers state legislative committee rule making.

    I've moved to Virginia and it isn't much better there. You need a government permission slip (Concealed Handgun Permit) to open carry there.

    I know this nonsense will produce some great videos on the Ridley report.:celebrate

    Start barraging the Speaker's Office 603-271-3661 and the President's Office 603-271-2111 to complain against the dangerous weapon ban.

    Comments in the Union Leader are overwhelmingly against the new rule (although some seem to think it's a law).

    Since when do you need a concealed weapons permit to OC in Virginia? Virginia is a state that allows OC without a permit--or it was the last time I checked.

    He's probably referring to the Virginia Capitol. By decree of the Joint Rules Committee, a person who does not have a concealed handgun permit is not allowed entry while in possession of a firearm, regardless of whether the firearm is concealed or openly displayed.
