|NH: Gun control legislation passes New Hampshire Senate|
Submitted by: firstname.lastname@example.org">Mark A. Taff
"With homicides on the rise, including with firearms, it's now more important than ever that we pass common-sense gun violence prevention legislation," Sen. Martha Hennessey, D-Hanover, said in a statement. "Today's Senate votes move New Hampshire forward on common-sense gun reform that strikes a reasonable balance between protecting public safety and second amendment rights."

|Do what has to be done to control criminals, but only up to the point of where you start depriving law abiding citizens of their Constitutional rights. These elected servants were given the opportunity to "Serve," not "Rule"|

Fundamental rights are not subject to "interest-balancing".
"We know of no other enumerated constitutional right whose core protection has been subjected to a freestanding 'interest-balancing' approach. The very enumeration of the right takes out of the hands of government ... the power to decide on a case-by-case basis whether the right is really worth insisting upon. . . The Second Amendment is no different [than] the First, it is the very product of an interest-balancing by the people[.]" - D.C. v. Heller (2008)
