MCB, do you mean to tell me that any legal gun owner could carry into a capital building & perhaps go & sit in on a court room proceeding? That sounds extremely dangerous to me, I'm all for the right to carry but I also know there are reasons for lines not crossed.

i don't remember exactly . i know congressman are now aloud to carry when they meet in the house and senate . how is it dangerous ? all the bad guys are in jail . people kill people not guns . it is a proven fact more guns = less crime . would you be willing to put a sign on your front yard that says "this is a gun free house " if the criminal thinks their may be a gun in the house he will think twice about breaking in that house . if he knows their is no guns . he can just walk in the front door and do what ever he wants .

The Congress used to be a rather rowdy place at one time, I hardly think they of all people should be allowed to carry in a capital.

That's a good point. A guy came to my door in the evening a few years back asking permission to track an injured deer (hit by a car) across my land. I said sure, good luck. He said, OK, I just didn't want you to see me prowling around and open fire! So rational people DO think about it.

As to carrying in the State House, Maine very recently had an incident where a legislator went bonkers and pulled a gun on a total stranger with no provocation whatsoever, in a donut shop parking lot as I recall. Turns out he had been acting REALLY strange in legislative sessions and apparently packing his pistol in the house chambers, and his fellow lawmakers barred him from the premises. So even "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire is probably not crazy enough to let every Tom Dick and Harry tote lethal weapons among them. I suspect the legislators proposing this are doing it for political effect and would be worried if it really did become law.

if you take away peoples right to defend themselves then only criminals have guns . the government can't take away the rights given to you buy god . if they can then its not a right . this would just prove my point . the bill of rights doesn't exist anymore ! they want us to believe it does so we don't freak out .

There is an ironic but true story about the New Hampshire "Live Free or Die" motto. Quite some years ago now, a NH resident reasoned that "freedom" included his right not to display the motto on his car license plate. So he covered it up. After all, he said, maybe I don't believe in that, and it is my freedom of speech not to be forced to display someone else's viewpoint on my car. I think the decision in court was that he was free to not drive if he didn't display the message. Bunch of hypocrites.

i think he has the right to cover it up but i think the state would say the plate was state property . so is the car . thats why they make you register them . i bet that guy in the parking lot wished he had a gun .

the law was past a little over a year ago . just before the congresswoman in arizona was shot . people asked them if they would reconsider . they said no way . there is a good article done buy the boston globe on it look for it . members have been doing it for years against the law . now they are one of seven state houses that allow it . it even covers visitors . it is one of the only state houses without metal detectors . i just remembered at the time my daughter was supposed to go to the state house for a field trip and the teachers union was mad about this and wanted to go somewhere else .

Here are a couple of interesting quotes from today's (Feb 5, 2012) John Harrigan column that appears every Sunday in the NH Union Leader.
http://www.unionleader.com/article/20120205/NEWHAMPSHIRE0301/702059955

A story on an attempted home invasion in Wakefield, NH should be read by anyone involved in the gun controversy. A man knocked at the door and said his vehicle was disabled. The homeowner armed himself and walked out with the “visitor” to check, at which the man sped off. Neighbors spotted three people walking away. Police later found three sets of tracks behind the house. It’s this kind of gun-prevented incident that rarely make the media.

A New Hampshire Union Leader editorial hit one gun issue right on the mark. It is illegal to carry firearms in fish and wildlife refuges, on the presumption that all firearms are for killing wildlife. But what about people carrying firearms for self-protection? The law should be changed.
