Words -- And Punctuation -- Mean Things

SB116, "repealing the license requirement for carrying a concealed pistol or revolver," having cleared the NH Senate, is now before the House Criminal Justice Committee, 3/24/2015. The House's own version, HB582, has been retained by the same House committee.

Oh, and do yourself a joyous favor, and catch Ian Underwood's testimony at about the 49:00 minute mark. He renders an argument I make constantly, myself, generally in the broader context -- although never so eloquently. And not like he hasn't done it before...

No Means No, DHS. Piss Off, Already.

The NH Senate Transportation Committee hears public testimony on SB262, "relative to the form of drivers' licenses and identification cards," 3/3/2015. The third NH coming of the seemingly-impossible-to-kill-actually-dead REAL ID Act.

Word is that they "Exec'd" the bill (voted on the committee's recommendation to the full Senate) before I'd even gotten home: "Inexpedient to Legislate." Evidently, at least some of the committee must remember the very public opposition to REAL ID back when we got the ban passed that this bill is trying to repeal -- for your convenience, citizen. Yeah, I wouldn't want to be on the pointy end of that, either...
