Back in September, the NH House voted to ask the NH Supreme Court if:

"Would holding a session of the New Hampshire House of
Representatives remotely, either wholly or in part, whereby a quorum could
be determined electronically, violate Part II, Article 20 of the New

Hampshire Constitution?"

While the idea and convenience of remote sessions sounds appealing, forcing legislators to face the citizens at the State House has always proved valuable to protecting our rights. Those pushing for this chance do not want to face the public when they pass their draconian laws. If they are able to go to online only, they will never need to show up when we turn out lots of gun owners opposing their actions.

The docket for the House request is here for those who want to dig into the details: If there are any attorneys that want to help volunteer their time, please PM me.

NHFC has filed a motion opposing this change.

Going to virtual would be a disaster for both parties regardless of the issue


Might be time for a letter/email campaign to the individual justices

At some point, this turns essentially to proxy voting. In-person access to one's actual representatives is essential to ensuring they vote with their constituency. Emails are ignored; calls can be answered by lackeys. It shouldn't be allowed to start down this road, which ends at pure party-line voting controlled by each party's leader.
