This so-called NH state 'representative' represents government power, not her constituents' liberty.

NH: Kyle’s Law is wrong for New Hampshire
Submitted by:">Mark A. Taff

“Kyle’s Law” would require the jury instruction on self-defense include a special question to the jury: “If you the jury are acquitting this defendant on the grounds of self-defense, do you also find that the prosecution failed to disprove self-defense by a majority of the evidence?”

If the jury answers this in the positive, the defendant is entitled to compensation not only from the state but also from the prosecutor personally. Additionally, the charging police officer will be held accountable as well.

"A prosecutor is acting in good faith, within the scope of the authority they possess, based on evidence, case law and precedence."

That assumes facts not in evidence, and prosecutors are notoriously political. Look at what NY is doing to the NRA and Donald Trump, motivated purely by political ideology.

If public officers ask us to trust them with such overwhelming power, we must be able to hold them accountable when they abuse it.


Liberty is paramount. Government is an afterthought.

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.

Liberals are people who stand on their heads and insist that the world is upside-down.
