Letter To The Editor


If you are a resident of a rural community, you have probably heard the gunshots of hunters sighting their guns, or hunting - if you live near an un-posted tract of land - and you probably have, for the most part, co-existed peacefully with responsible gun owners. 


However, the gun industry, the NRA and the right-wing have been fabricating propaganda about Obama, which includes an intention to deny citizens’ second amendment rights by confiscating their guns, and which has resulted in the proliferation in the ownership of hand guns and assault weapons by yahoos with no previous experience or need, past, present or future, for a firearm.  As a result, many rural neighborhoods have been turned into virtual firing ranges by individuals who have no knowledge of firearm etiquette or responsible gun ownership, and who feel that their second amendment rights trump everyone else’s constitutional rights. 


Most rural residents are aware that the discharge of firearms are generally allowed outside a 300 foot perimeter of a residence; however, they may not be aware that they do not have to live in fear of their neighbors’ stray bullets and do not have to tolerate the conversion of a peaceful neighborhood into a virtual war zone.


 NH RSA 644:2 - Disorderly Conduct, protects citizens by prohibiting purposely causing “a breach of the peace, public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creates a risk thereof, by….making loud or unreasonable noises….which noises would disturb a person of average sensibilities.” 


This legal information was, ironically, taken from the website of the Gun Owners of New Hampshire.  The site includes detailed legal information regarding this issue that citizens can use to protect their rights and enable them to live without fear of injury to their family from an uninformed neighbor’s stray bullet.
