Recent changes to NH's gun laws make us nearly as unrestrictive as Vermont. Aside from the Federal laws and Regulations any adult can carry a loaded firearm out in the open in this state. Concealed carry requires a permit from the town police chief.
Greg, are these two separate thoughts or are you trying to make a connection between the two?

That works for me. We're both happy with where you are living and it leaves more assault weapon buying opportunities for me.

Mass was electrical tech long before it was liberal and got that draconian gun law BS. Mass used to be ok with gun law, which all changed in about 1976 oddly, maybe it was just as good a date 1974. After having fired the Shot heard Round the World, one would think Mass would be more gun friendly and less KING friendly huh?

But then Mass had the rotten SOB Gov Duke and his drunken sot wife Kitty, who wanted to write draconian gun law so he furloughed willey horten to a get out of jail card for free on a weekend to KILL. Willey was in prison for murder anyway. he killed using a knife, but that didn't stop Duke from writing more gun law.

The system is both broken and corrupt. That same broken is coming to NH because of sheer liberal stupidity. I also find it strange the Liberal is based on Liberty, but these so called liberals are a lot more like Nazi's that anything liberal at all.

That comment OLD Vermont is funny too. It's French for Green Mountains, and if the same old poly tics were not broken and corrupt Vt might still be French and part of Canada. At least VT has decent gun law.

The problem with good and bad places to live is based these days on the corrupt poly tics. The more corruption the more liberal the more liberal the worse it is to live there and people leave. The people that leave bring what ever the problems they left behind with them and so we have liberal NH USA

But don't worry these Libs have the same cure for every problem RAISE the BLOODY TAXES. Wasn't that Revolt about raising the taxes?

Ouch. Painful but true. And I'm on the seacoast. Pains me to see the MA people screwing up traffic, pretending they own the place, driving up prices, then go back to MA and talk smack like we're a bunch of inbred hicks.

They want all the advantages but none of the responsibilities.


They do the same thing in Vermont too.

I didn't like the poll choices. I'm pretty happy being between Concord and Portsmouth. It's above the southern NH line (Rte. 101) and close enough to urban amenities and easy access to the seacoast and Maine. I have no desire to live further north or in southern NH.

I consider the worst place in NH is Hampton Beach on a warm sunny Saturday in summer. One of the best places in NH is Hampton Beach on a cold blustery day in winter. Another good place is looking out over the pond from my condo's front door most any time of year. Even when the pond is frozen and a glacier wanna be covers the lawn.

As a well traveled individual, I find this thread to be extremely comical. Just downright hilarious.

Thank you, great learned scholar. Perhaps you will deign to tell us poor peasants of your travels to the lands where animals talk as humans do, and men have but one great face in the middle of their torso. Alas, we pathetic plebians do not have the knowledge of written word, and so will be unable to receive your pearls of wisdom.

Truly, we yearn to hear of your great travels to the land of Flo-Rid'a, which only the strongest of our octogenarians can endure, and your "dozens" of trips to the great mecca of Boston, where only the employed may tread after two hours of gruelling traffic every morning.

My vote is for the nearly non-functional town of Stratford, south of Colebrook. I'm not exactly sure why people still stay in that area..

They think they deserve to multiply like rabbits.

When I moved here 10 years ago, you guys didn't even sell tortillas! It was sad. How much kraft cheese and wonderbread can a body stand? How many dirt bikes can you crash and burn? How many ducks can you shoot and eat? Okay, you can mow your lawn endlessly in your hummer of lawn mower.

A little culture is creeping in as well, but nobody's gonna acuse us of being the Vanguard. I'm feeling good! Hah Hah Bush is on the run! You go, New Hampshire. Get used to it, You Stand-Stillers. Nothing stands still. If it tries to stand still, it can't because it's moving backward.

It's simple physics.

Really, you are accusing NH people of "multiplying like rabbits"? LOL. Most people I know have small families. There are, perhaps, enough people having kids as to sustain the population, though I fail to see how that is bad. Where as in Europe the only population growth you see are from Muslim families, who really do multiply like rabbits.
