On Friday, August 9, NH Governor Chris Sununu vetoed 3 gun safety bills. From his veto statement:
New Hampshire is one of the safest states in the nation, and we have a long and proud tradition of responsible firearm stewardship. Our laws are well-crafted and fit our culture of responsible gun ownership and individual freedom.
Later that evening, in Derry, a 79 year old man shot and killed his wife.
Didn't this guy know about the culture?
In the wee hours of Monday, August 12, Dover police are investigating gunfire in a street confrontation.
Just a little individual freedom fire. Nothing to see here.
The wee hours of Monday morning were busy. In Northwood, a man claims he shot at someone trying to break into his car. Shot 3 times and missed. The police searched the area, but didn't find anyone.
Thursday, August 15, a responsible firearm steward barricaded himself in a house in Claremont for 9 hours. Hundreds of shots fired, but no one was injured.
Sunday, September 15, a good guy with a gun - a safety officer no less - wounded himself and another safety officer, at a shooting range in Keene.
