I’m still waiting for substantive reciprocity reform, but this looks like great progress, especially when our opponents arrogantly believed they could exploit the Gabby Gifford’s shooting to shoe horn a magazine ban through in the Pine Tree State.
I would also note that Maine is one of John Hohenwarter’s states, for those folks who think’s he’s been a plague of locusts on the gun rights movement. He delivered on on a clean bill for Castle Doctrine, so I’m inclined to believe he’s not working against our interests, despite what many claim.
I am still trying to work up a post on what happened in New Hampshire, but my current work situation has been sapping my time, and making my schedule completely erratic. I have not had much time, but I hope to deliver at some point.
UPDATE: I should point out that I’m don’t agree with NRA on the parking lot law, but my greater point was that Hohenwarter isn’t as inept as many think. I’m open to the argument that John could stand to have a few less states, but of the ones I know about, MA, PA, ME, OH, NH, serious pro-gun legislation has passed in three, and anti-gun legislation that received major news coverage was defeated in at least one (not even mentioning, so far, FL loophole in PA). NH, to date, has been the only notable exception, and I’m still trying to figure out that cluster.
