Letter: ‘Stand Your Ground’ opponents are wrong
The opponents of New Hampshire’s “Stand Your Ground” law said that if we had such a law, it would be abused and crime casualties would increase because irresponsible gun owners would take it as a license to kill. Well, guess what? Stand Your Ground has been the law, and it has not been abused even once.
State Rep. Steve Shurtleff of Penacook and others of his ilk should stop cloaking their anti-Second Amendment sentiments and admit that they do not like citizens carrying guns. To that end, they will make every attempt to make it difficult or uncomfortable for law-abiding citizens to legally have or carry a defensive weapon. Massachusetts seems a better place for them and their ideas; I suggest they would be happier living there.
