New Hampshire : Weekly Wrap Of Anti-Gun Activities

GOP Elephant Rhino Elephino
Please continue to contact Ray Chadwick who is one of several Vice Chairman of the Republican Party; right now it looks like they’re digging in…

New Hampshire – -( Last week I told you about how the New Hampshire Republican Party is being run by an anti-gun New Yorker, Todd Chewing who scheduled a candidate training session at the Common Man Restaurant.  These partisans just don’t get it.

Party Chair Wayne MacDonald contacted me by telephone to “explain” about the Common Man restaurant.  Mr. MacDonald is backing anti-gun Todd Chewing.  Mr. MacDonald asked me if I knew that the Grafton County Republicans met at the Common Man.  I told him I did not know that, but it doesn’t matter.  The party is using money that was donated to elect Republicans to rent space and buy food and beverages at a restaurant that is owned by a man who has consistently supported their opponents.  NHFC is concerned because Alex Ray also supports former Congresswoman Gabby Giffords’ anti-gun organization.

Mr. MacDonald told me that Republicans are better than Democrats.  Maybe.  Here’s a partial list of anti-gun Republican activities (from just New Hampshire) that I gave him; we want better than this:

HB 1463, the 2018 Range Closure Act, sponsored by three Republicans.

HB 1749, enhanced statewide firearms preemption, to prevent local gun bans.  Defeated by the House Republican leadership.

Republicans like to brag about the enactment of Constitutional Carry, but it was Senate Republicans,  led by Judiciary Committee Chair Senator Sharon Carson who defeated HB 1313 which would have extended Constitutional Carry to snowmobiles and ATVs.  What is ironic is that the Senate Majority Leader co-sponsored HB 1313 but made no effort to see it through to enactment into law.  In other words, he doesn’t really support gun ownership and use.

And lets not forget that the Republican Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley is pushing red flag, gun confiscation legislation.

Make no mistake, these partisans, led by an anti-gun New Yorker, have no principles or commitment to Second Amendment Civil Rights.  They are committed to remaining in power.  This is why they are having a candidate training session at a restaurant owned by a far left, anti-gun activist.  Even after they were told that there were alternative venues not far from the Common Man.

John DiStaso wrote about this yesterday.  Wayne MacDonald seems to think he can campaign on the enactment of Constitutional Carry and deceive firearms owners into thinking Republicans are our friends.  The friends are those who sponsored the two pro-gun bills listed above and those who voted against killing those bills.  A very small number.

A longtime NHFC Member characterized Todd Chewing as follows:

“Those, who move to New Hampshire and then spread anti-firearm venom, need to be told to return whence they came. They’ve made a mistake. One, who hates the cold and loves the hot and steamy weather, should not move to New Hampshire.

A person, who loves bacon, should not move to Saudi Arabia. Almost all Saudis are Muslims. Muslims may not touch bacon, in any form. Possession of pork in Saudi Arabia is a criminal offense.

In short, those – who come to New Hampshire from New Jersey, New York, Maryland, etc., – and bring with them a hatred of firearms, have made a mistake. They’ll be happier where prevail viciously repressive laws governing firearms.”

I agree I think that Mr. Chewing would be far happier in his native New York.  You might wish to ask him (by calling his New York-based cell phone) why he scheduled a Republican Party training event at an anti-gun Democrat run restaurant: (516) 521-7926

Todd recently sent an email (we have captured the online version here) talking about “An Uncommonly Good Time.  Sure looks to me like anti-gun Todd Chewing has adopted the marketing slogan of the Common Man.  A complete buy-in.  Why would any Republican work to promote a restaurant that has signed on to Gabrielle Giffords campaign by using their slogan?

You may have seen the Union Leader editorial which was critical of our opposition to this choice of venue.  What the editorial writers seem to miss is this is NOT the same as a restaurant, which is a public accommodation, denying service to Sarah Huckabee Sanders.  This is about not funding those who would donate some of the profits from your meal to people who are 100% opposed to your stated platform.

Please continue to contact Ray Chadwick who is one of several Vice Chairman of the Republican Party; right now it looks like they’re digging in but maybe you can convince him. You can call him at (603) 566-9129 or email him at [email protected]   Let him know that you might support individual Republicans who truly support Second Amendment civil rights but you will in no way support the party because the party will support even those Republicans who are hostile to Second Amendment Civil Rights.

Remember to be polite but firm when you urge these partisans to abandon their plans to host a training session at anti-gun Alex Ray’s restaurant.

Thanks for your continued support!

The NHFC is screwing with the surveys and giving excelent PRO 2nd A candidates a bad FRS rating (Check out http://www.granitegrok,com). See how the GOP is hindering Trump? Well the NH GOP is doing the same to NH Conservatives. They keep saying a vote for Progressive RHINOs are better than one for Dems!! I think they’ll be seeing a loss of a lot of votes to the Libertarian candidates. NH? Is it time to #walkaway from the Dems and the the NHGOP? Like the Dems the NHGOP has been lying to us for our vote. Forget the Party, vote only… Read more »


They are everywhere. They lie and sneak into freedom loving states just to steal the authority and start their gun confiscation efforts. They could stay in the states they have destroyed with their liberal piles of shit and enjoy the fruits of their labor but they are power hungry and want to control the populace. Apparently they have only achieved 2nd or 3d where they are so they move to try and be no.1. I have a number one for them, it is my extended middle finger. The name Chewing should have been their first clue.

We may call Democrats stupid, but the Republicans as a whole will never catch up to their dirty tricks. If the Party does not wake up fast you will not see any difference in the liberalization of our country. If you want to keep the Constitution intact then find our how to get the Republican Party to hold the line since a bad Republican is just another Democrat, and they know it. Come on people tell them to be roofless, and learn some dirty tricks too..

This is not just in NH that this is happening. The RNCC, RNSC and the state RNC’s are collecting money from Republicans and using it to undermine Conservatives in State and National contests. I have stopped donating to the RNC’s & RSC’s and have not and will not renew my membership in them. I donate only to the Heritage Action, the Conservative Senatorial Committee, and individual conservatives in the state contests. You don’t have to donate a lot, $5.00 – $ 10.00 is fine ,if a lot of people donated that much it would help these people a lot. Don’t… Read more »


I think one might want to check the phone # the area code tells me (516) is from Nassau county NEW YORK that is on LONG ISLAND It is the land of NO so if this anti ,running for ANY office in the state of N.H., THROW HIM OUT.


Living in a Communist run state of Connecticut and being choked by high taxes, and having our constitutional rights attacked daily, I had been considering Both Vermont or New Hampshire as a place where I can escape. Vermont fell off the list after the recent passage of their liberal gun laws. I never Thought Vermont would consider putting in place any laws that would diminish the ability of residents to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights. That left New Hampshire as my target state. However, lately it seems that the state is beginning to look more like Massachusetts. It no longer… Read more »

ras, I hear you. We 2A folks in VT have decided that Scott is gone as soon as the next election. Most of the people in the state are outraged, including the dim-o-wits. The problem lies in Burlington which is the population center of the state and over run with flatlanders from MA, CT, and NY. Home of Bernie Sanders and Burl. state college currently out of business due to his wife who stole it blind. But, even the libs are against the new laws (yeah really) except for the leg’s in the state. Libs own farms and hunt too.… Read more »


I think they are turning into Hypocrats more than RINO!

The big problem with the GOP is they have totally lost their gonads and sit to wiz, they all seem to do a good job with lip service and hide in shadows so they can’t be called out about it!!!!!!


No “professional” politician would allow the following into law.

The right of recall by plebiscite, by legislative vote of the majority of the body the politician is a member of, or by a writ from the state governor, all subject to judicial review. This could be advantageous for the judicial system as well.


I was thinking of moving from Florida because I am concerned that it is becoming overrun by northeastern Yankees who are looking to change the political climate of the entire state, including firearm laws. They are like a cancer metastasizing throughout the body of the entire country. New Hampshire was one of the few states I was considering because of what up until now has seemed to be a firearm friendly political atmosphere, and the fact that I have family and friends who still reside there. If this article rings true I guess I can cross New Hampshire off my… Read more »


@YB, yes, it is like a cancer.

I was not aware of the politics of The Common Man Restaurant. Just had my last meal there last week. Thanks for the heads-up.

Democrats are sneaky who help put other Democrats who only say they are Republican into power. We have to figure out a way to curb that to be of real help. I wonder why Republicans haven’t done this.
