Speaking of misinformation, "NH boasts one of the highest per captia(sic) gun ownership rates in the United States - and we're the safest because of that fact.", is your OPINION, Mr Manley. It is not necessarily true, however. ...(full comment)

Changes to New Hampshire’s concealed carry license application trigger concern from gun rights activists

Poppycock, Mr. Lemieux. If you were paying any attention at all, as it is so obvious you have not been, you would know that the Sewalls Falls bridge is a city owned hunk of rusty iron. It is the city of Concord's responsibility, and has pretty much nothing to do with the State or the State House. It is the city of Concord alone who is responsible for all the delays. You have created a false, factoid issue void of any actual facts, Mr. Lemieux. Sophistry at it's finest. A lie to score political points. But those points will only exist in your mind, because those of us who pay attention know how full of fecal matter your comment is. ...(full comment)

Letter: It’s not Boehner’s bridge

This "letter" is all politics by Kuster. Election year semantics. 'Look at me, I am fighting for you'. Mrs. Doubtfire in action. I wonder if she will do an interview about this now and grab the reporters microphone and utter some profanity. What a class act. ...(full comment)

Letter: Leaving footprints

OK, let's do the math. 300,000 is .001% of 300,000,000. John Oliver could put 1 person in a white coat in a convention hall and the bring in 999 people in red shirts. That is the 1 in 1000 ratio referred to. Just 33% in an April 2014 poll were concerned about global warming. Using that math there could be a possible 99,000,000 folks who agree with your immediate need to act. That means that 201,000,000 are not in agreement. Now, John Oliver could bring 100 people into a room and 33 would be wearing those white coats and 67 would not. More recent Gallup surveys show that 63% of Americans support higher emissions standards, down 19% since 2007. However they felt is was a good thing but not necessarily due to climate change or out of concern about global warming. The global warming / climate change movement is becoming more extreme and more militant. That is what is killing support for your cause. ...(full comment)

Letter: A fact is a fact

There's a lot of misinformation in the comments section so here's my attempt to clarify some points above: Yes, there are law-abiding, licensed individuals carrying a concealed handgun in NH today. We're walking our dogs, shopping for groceries at Market Basket, enjoying a coffee at our favorite, local donut shop and commuting to and from work. Protecting your most fundamental right - your right to life - shouldn't require a license. NH boasts one of the highest per captia gun ownership rates in the United States - and we're the safest because of that fact. Rep. JR Hoell and others deserve encouragement in their quest to keep and maintain NH's safest state status by simplifying the application process and making it optional - if you can lawfully purchase a gun you shouldn't require an additional level of approval by a "licensing authority" to carry it concealed or in a motor vehicle. The changes to the form were an obvious effort on behalf of one or more bureaucrats to chill the fundamental human rights protected by the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution and Article 2A of the NH State Constitution. ...(full comment)

You are incorrect, when Obama decided to appoint an Air Force Chief and a woman was a candidate that he absolutely did use affirmative action and most people would agree with that decision in todays politically correct environment. Finally, I am not your "friend", do not want to be your "friend", could never be a "friend" with a person of your viewpoints and funny, my opinion of you seems to match your opinion of me, so let's call it even. ...(full comment)

My Turn: Here’s hoping a true progressive challenges Clinton

"'And, it makes the state’s permitting process weak,' Crate said. 'For you to get a license to drive a car, you have to go through a few more steps. You don’t have to go through those steps to carry a concealed weapon.'” You do not go have to undergo a background check to get a driver's license, and I still don't understand why the Enfield, NH police chief and civilian disarmament enthusiasts insist on trying to draw parallels between a natural right protected by a constituitional amendment and the priviledge of driving on public roads. For those previous commenters who have entirely missed the point by commenting about open carriers and gun ownership in general, this article is in reference to concealed carry licenses (P&R). ...(full comment)

Katy Burns: When local school boards are taken over, embarrassment can soon follow

Agree Walter!! There is nothing attractive or compelling about Islam at all. I find it incredulous, in this day and age that folks would buy into something so barbaric and evil, that it is taking them back to the dark ages in history. Ultimately, evil never wins but sure causes terrible trouble between points A and Z. ...(full comment)

Letter: Leaving footprints

If the government (politicians) would stop giving grant money for hair-brain studies or building bridges to no-where in their districts they could use that money to fund research on real issues. Grants to UNH to study "cow farts" or research on a medical condition like MS - the elected officials have chosen which they feel is more important. ...(full comment)

The Insiders: Concord continues its reign as king of all walks with today’s MS Journey of Hope

John...a discussion on this subject yesterday on CNN came to the same conclusion: target the supporters, not ISIL. Only when the find themselves without support-in effect, broke-will they crawl back into their holes. What I find most curious: the Koran tells all Muslims to never kill other Muslims; we've seen how they honor this command !! My opinion: even though Islam is a growing religion, there is nothing really attractive about it. ...(full comment)
