    And thus we get no support from the legislative branch. As so many have said, it's up to We The People to change things.

    By way, excerpt from reader comment by Michael Layon, who testified for the bill:

    I don't think Michael Layon is a happy camper.

    I left a comment, which just posted. Alas, they seem to have dysfunctional formatting -- the whole thing is crunched together in one block of text, with no paragraph breaks.

    It got 41% of the vote. That is a lot of muskets.

    The tide is turning. That is way better than it would have been in 2011.

    How much pressure did the TSA put on NH legislators to vote against this?

    I just don't get the motivation. Why would legislators side against their constituents in an election year?

    You're assuming that most constituents object to the TSA. Sorry, I don't see evidence of that. I see lots of people who object, of course. But most? Nope.
