- Granite State of Mind
Penny Dean, a gun-rights attorney, urged rejection of the bill, which she called, "horrible, horrible, horrible." She said the language in it raises a list of vague wording that will give police free rein to stop anyone with a weapon.
John Hohenwarter, a Washington, D.C., based liaison for the National Rifle Association, urged delay on the bill, agreeing with Dean that it could lead to police abuse.
He said it interferes with the right to self-defense, and argued that police are not obligated to protect anyone.
A loaded gun poses safety risks to anyone in a vehicle, he said, not only from movement of the weapon but in the instances of a car crash or air bag deployment.
The New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police also opposed the bill. Salem Chief Paul Donovan said that particularly in border communities, police worry Massachusetts gang and drug activity that moves here will become more violent.
I read the text of 330 and while it could be cleaned up I don't understand this comment in the article:
or this one;
Can someone explain what I'm missing please?
And then we have this gem from Fish and Game Maj. Kevin Jordan.
I've never heard of a gun going off in a crash, LPG tanks exploded on many cop cars here in AZ, but never a gun to my knowledge.
We have the border problem, not you. Don't try to take our spotlight! :lol:
Because most are politicians.Why are so many Police Chiefs worthless Jerks.
