R.I.P. NH State House Gun Ban

The Joint Legislative Facilities Committee lifted the ban on the carriage of firearms in the State House and Legislative Office Building in Concord.

UPDATE: From WMUR.com:

CONCORD, N.H. — A Republican-dominated legislative committee voted Tuesday to repeal a year-old ban on guns and dangerous weapons in the New Hampshire Statehouse complex.

Republican members of the Joint Legislative Facilities Committee and ban opponents cited the public’s constitutional rights to bear guns and defend themselves as the reasons why the change was warranted.

Of course, I couldn’t resist leaving my two cents there as well.

    That’s good I suppose. Also, doesn’t having that ban directly go against NH laws?

    The only places banned in NH from carrying as far as I know are post offices, schools (though also kind of messed up law), Private posted buildings (they can ask you to leave), court rooms, buildings with courtrooms. (159.19-III).
