Guns&Ammo recently did its annual rating of "Best States for Gun Owners 2015." Last year, New Hampshire came in 25th place. An early mover contacted the magazine about that rating, detailing how they got New Hampshire's wrong. This year, New Hampshire moved up 15 spots, and now rates in the Top 10! Says the early mover: "I still think we should be in the Top 3, but this is still good for attracting movers from nearby northeast states." Live in New England? Love guns? Love liberty? Join the Free State Project, where your gun rights matter!

Last night a group of Free Staters attended the Hampton Democrats monthly meeting where Zandra Rice Hawkins from Granite State Progress (GSP) gave a presentation on the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and the Free State Project (FSP). As in the past, Rice Hawkins failed to reach out to the FSP to make sure she has the facts.
From the invite email: “Zandra Rice Hawkins will provide an update on the Free State Project and ALEC. If you are not familiar with either of these 'initiatives' you should plan to attend – you will surprised and concerned at the amount of influence these two groups are playing – and hope to play – in New Hampshire. Each of these promises to be VERY educational — pleas (sic) plan to join us.”
Joel Valenzuela, blogger and activist at the Rights Brigade, a new liberty outreach venture, wrote about the evening HERE.
The Concord Monitor recently posted a list of things to do to discover the "real" New Hampshire. Read it here.
One notable, which is true, and which is another reason New Hampshire is a great pro-liberty destination: "16. See in person every major candidate running for president. As soon as one election is over they’ll start showing up campaigning for the next one, even if it’s four years off. A great to place to find them is Lindy’s Diner in Keene, and be sure to try an order of onion rings when you’re there."
