Please sign our petition to urge Governor Maggie Hassan to allow our National Guard to arm and defend themselves, preventing another tragedy similar to the one that occurred in Chattanooga, TN!
In response to the recent deadly terrorist attack on a military recruitment center in Chattanooga, Tennessee, state Representative Frank Edelblut wrote a letter to Governor Maggie Hassan, urging her to allow members of the military to defend themselves.
While the Obama Administration has made it clear they are not willing to act, governors have the power to arm each state National Guard, and 14 states have made the common sense decision to arm National Guard troops.
The members of the National Guard in New Hampshire, who have sworn an oath to protect their country, have the right to defend themselves. They have the right to carry firearms domestically, as they do while deployed in service to this country. TELL Gov. Hassan to not leave our service members defenseless!
