New Hampshire had been the one primarily conservative state in the northeast until about five years ago then the liberals from Massachusetts started moving in to avoid the Mass. taxes. They still kept their liberal voting tendencies however, and you can see how that has affected the New Hampshire Governor and legislative elections.

As Vinkingdad stated: "Political and social trends have long tended to start in California and New York where they expand out from there." You can also add New Hampshire to that quote.

The decloration of independance. Securing our freedom and starting one of the greatest government since the roman empire. Yes it is much easer to sit home and take it up the rear. We need to bring all americans together. Every one neeed to see what is going on behind closed doors. We the people are not to fear the government. The government has to fear us. Thats how we keep the balance. I did register my guns and my mags not to follow them but to fight the fight on there terms. You have to play there way to win. Theres always a loop hole. Nothing is air tight. The day the government fears the people is the day the people can carry the decloration. Ive written more letter spent more time one the phone with my reps and mayor. Missed more days of work to go to the rallies at the capital, than any person i know. When i hear people calling me a sheep it boils my blood. I fight for every american no matter what color there skin is nor what race they may be. So y do you ask your self what have i done lately. Sent from my SPH-D710 using Firearms Talk mobile app
I made suggestions and the people in that state said it was hopeless. Then turned around and said we would be begging for their help. I was making a point. I know it's not hopeless. I've been in the middle of grassroots campaigns on multiple political issues that were the status quo and fit the political agenda of the state I was living in. I've been a part of accomplishing what the news media and political strategists said was "hopeless."

Once we walked into a state capital during a legislative session the day one of our bills was being debated with over 600 people. Each group from each district filled out the request from the Sgt At Arms that their legislator come talk to them. And that was just a single part of our strategy.

Even the flaming libs voted for our side that day.

It's never hopeless, until you stop trying.

I intend to move back to Louisiana when that option becomes possible through my job. Just in case the gun control lobby ever gained any traction there, we removed the provision in the constitution there that allowed the legislature to pass concealed carry laws and now require strict scrutiny for any gun control laws that are passed

This means any gun control law passed there requires compelling governmental interest, must be narrowly tailored and using the least restrictive means to achieve that interest. The NRA touted it as the strongest state constitutional amendment in the country.

So I shouldn't be "begging anyone for help" there. Check your state constitutions if you don't live in a "hopeless" state and if you don't have a similar gun rights amendment, start lobbying for one.

Were not helpless nor hopeless, just overwhelmed by NYC Libturds at the moment. Take a look at the picture off my back deck, do you see any cities in that picture? No? I didnt think so! Thats because there are at least 6 states in entirety closer to NYC literally and figuratively than 2/3rds of the Real State of NY.

We didnt lose the battle, there wasnt one, they pushed the Safe Act through without debate or discussion thanks to something that didnt even happen in this state. We didnt lose the war either, no war was declared, they swung a deathblow at us while we were sleeping.


Since that happened, weve rallied our forces and begun offensive tactics. 95% of our County Executives have declared the Safe Act "unsat" for upstate and many of the prosecutors and PD's are saying they wont make arrests or convictions solely based on new illegal laws in the SA. The Governor failed to get his Bullet Background Data Base up so thats being delayed and a western NY Federal Judge struck down the 7 round limit.

This is the beginning of the end for the Safe Act, keep watching as NY becomes a free state again!

At delta.

Love the amendment to the state constitution idea. A few have mentioned that here in CT as well, but (why is there always a but) in order for us to do that we have to open the entire constitution of this state. So you ask?? Well the are certain factions here that have been trying to get things added in to our constitution that a good many dont want but at the same time won't fight to keep it out. Along the line of opening Pandora's box if you will.

The humorous part is with all the "protect the people and children" laws (gun in particular) in this state we still don't have a helmet law for motorcycles.

And even in a State where you do have Favorable Laws, KEEP Efforts to "restrict"(to use the Anti's favorite term) CCW laws and ownership laws from being passed in your State!!! Join a State wide Organization(just about every state has one), which is why I joined AZ-CDL(Arizona Civil Defense League). Your state wide organization, if they are on the Ball, will have someone lobbying full time at your state's capitol(Az-CDL has TWO full time lobbyers!).

This defeatist attitude right here is how the fricking progressives end up owning states and issues.
That was all worth repeating. If gun owners had the same determination, commitment and courage as our opponents show, this issue would've been thrown on a manure pile long ago.

We have seen this movie in Canada. This is a glimpse where this law is headed and what utter lack of any good will ever come of it:

Some of the reaction in Canada included these people, who played a part in resisting and finally overcoming a large piece of such stupidity:

heres a classic example of how scared conn. people are. saw on the news...a guy robbed a store with a fork....and the clerk gave him the money.
probably because the cops tell everyone not to engage the perp. to cooperate and let the police take care of the case.
what part of duh am i missing?
so...police tell you to register your mags....and you guys do.

fork? mags?
its all the same.
you do what the police tell you and you go to sleep feeling good about yourselves being law abiding.

has anyone thought about if you guys do get the laws recended? your mags will still be on record! someone will still know where they are!

odd state.

I heard on the new today, way down here in Ohio, Conn. has only had 35% of the numbers of "assault rifles" registered, that they expected....Guess you guys dont have as many of them as they thought..

Did they mention how they came about those expected numbers? And what they may do about the "problem"?
