General Grades

by NH Firearms Coalition on October 23, 2016

Over the last few weeks, we have been hard at work grading the candidates who did not have contested primaries. You can view the full list of grades here. Please contact those politicians who do not have good grades and tell them they need to reform their view of the Second Amendment.

2016 Primary Election Grades

by NHFC, Inc. on September 12, 2016

Last week Scott told you about the release of our 2016 Primary Election Grades.  Click here to see our grades.

I am writing today to remind you to carefully study them before Tuesday, September 13.  I also want to call your attention to a few selected races.  We told you in some detail about the Gubernatorial candidates.   Please consider our points as you consider the candidates.

The Executive Council is often overlooked but vitally important.  We are concerned about Manchester Alderman and District 4 Executive Council Candidate Joseph Kelly Levasseur.  Mr. Levasseur has refused to stand for the rule of law and the Second Amendment in Manchester.  In 2004 pre-emption became law and cities and towns were prohibited from regulating firearms.  Despite this, Mr. Levasseur as an Alderman has allowed the Verizon Arena (now the SNHU Arena) to ban the carrying of firearms.  The arena is owned by the City of Manchester!  Apparently Alderman Levasseur is quite comfortable with the City of Manchester violating a state law and having law abiding citizens who would like to attend a concert or hockey game being disarmed.

The good news is that his opponent, Jim Adams returned his survey 100% pro gun and we have graded him A.

In State Senate Districts 1 and 16, Leon Rideout and Joe Duarte, respectively, have both earned the NHFC Grade of A+ for their longtime Second Amendment activism.  If you live in District 1 or 16 please thank these 2 heros for their support of Second Amendment civil rights.  In both of these districts, their opponents, Dolly McPhaul and Don Winterton have refused to return a completed NHFC Candidate Survey.  This is a sign of outright hostility to Second Amendment rights.

I would be remiss if I didn’t remind you to review the grades for the candidates for Federal Offices.  Anti-gun promise  breaker Kelly Ayotte has refused to return her NHFC survey but she is being challenged by A rated former State Senator Jim Rubens who returned his survey 100% pro-gun.

In the 1st Congressional District A rated pro-gun US Congressman Frank Guinta is running for re-election.  Congressman Guinta has sponsored a long list of pro-gun bills and he returned his NHFC Candidate Survey 100% pro-gun.  Sadly, anti-gun lobbyist, F rated Rich Ashooh has refused to return his NHFC survey.  But we know he stands for gun control because he said so on the radio.

In the 2nd Congressional District A rated Jim Lawrence is running against anti-gun State Rep. Jack Flanagan.

We have done extensive reporting on all the Federal Candidates.  Click here for the information on the incumbents, and click here for the reports on the challengers.

Their are a lot of A rated candidates running for state representative this year.   Patriots who have pledged to support the Second Amendment.  Please take some time to read and learn about the candidates and their views on the Second Amendment.

Thanks for your support.
