WE ARE writing because we have noticed an extreme and alarming change to our state government. We used to think that New Hampshire government, a pretty local enterprise given the small size of our state, was a true government of and by the people. But strange things are happening in our State House, sometimes so quickly that nobody has time to react.

New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch (D) on Thursday vetoed a bill that would have required voters to present a government-issued photo identification before casting a ballot.

New Hampshire Governor John Lynch has signed Rep. Jenn Coffey’s Knife Rights Bill into law, removing restrictions on switchblades, dirks, daggers and stilettos in Hew Hampshire and essentially removing all restrictions on knives in New Hampshire state law. New Hampshire now has no knife laws which stop law abiding citizens from buying, selling, owning, carrying, possessing, transporting, collecting, or lawfully using any type of knife. This is the first complete repeal of a state's knife restrictions ever.
Until July 1, a low-income New Hampshire woman paid an average of $5 to fill a birth control pill prescription at any of the state's six Planned Parenthood clinics. She might have even gotten the birth control for free, depending on her poverty level.
But since the New Hampshire Executive Council voted to cancel the state's contract with Planned Parenthood, a woman now has to pay anywhere from $40 to over $100 for birth control pills at a regular pharmacy.
It’s OK to make a goofy film about Bigfoot on Mount Monadnock without a state permit despite New Hampshire regulations, the New Hampshire Supreme Court has ruled – but only because the peak in Jaffrey is so well known that it constitutes a “traditional public forum,” where free speech is especially protected.
