ew Hampshire State Representative Jennifer Coffey has introduced a bill to legalize "stilettos, switch knives, daggers, and dirk-knives" for all law-abiding citizens in New Hampshire. Heretofore, these knives, which are not well-defined in the state law, have been restricted in the state, even though New Hampshire has some of the most liberal gun carry laws in the nation. The bill has received broad bipartisan support according to our sources and stands a good chance of passage. Knife Rights member and Second Amendment legal adviser, Evan Nappen, has been actively involved in developing and promoting this bill. Knife Rights is planning on testifying in support of this bill as it moves through the legislative process.

Rep. Coffey's bill removes the prohibition on these knives and focuses the law on CRIMINAL USE of the knives. Knife Rights supports efforts that remove restrictions on ownership, carry and legitimate use of knives as tools and arms and recognizes that it is the criminal use of knives that should garner the law's attention. You can read more about this bill from Rep. Coffey on the Second Amendment Sister's web site: www.2asisters.org

Amen - The last enclave of freedom up there.

If the winters didn't suck so bad, we'd most certainly be living there now.

Good for them.


Sadly, it still doesn't trump the retarded federal ban on automatics. Hopefully we'll get there eventually.

Wife and I are working on getting up there before 2011.

BIL's live in Boston, MIL/FIL would like to move to NH as well.

It would be a welcome change for this conservative family currently living in Western NY

If I had to move back to the northeast, it would be to NH. Still too close to MA for my tastes though.

Huh. I may have to consider moving there at some point.

Bout time. I needs me a new switchblade. Although my Kershaw Onion opens faster than any other knives I have.

Born and raised in NH. I'm moving back as soon as I have enough career experience to make it up there.

I was born in Mass. There's a reason why I no longer live there. Don't get all butt-hurt about it.

I spent 10 years in Mass. I am now about as far away, still staying in the U.S., as is humanly possible.
