A lack of civility and decorum during those months created for many an emotional environment that was not helpful to the serious work that needs to be addressed in the New Hampshire House.
The new rule simply states that there will be no loaded firearms in the New Hampshire House Chamber, the anterooms, or the gallery, unless carried by a public safety officer.
The majority of constituents in my hometown have reached out to tell me that they do not believe that the process of lawmaking, which requires thoughtful debate and respect for each other’s opinions, is enhanced by the presence of firearms. I have voted to support the new rules of the New Hampshire House.
