Liberty Lobby 2018 – Week 1 Videos

DISCLAIMER: I’m not actually part of Liberty Lobby (though I’ve donated my time to help). I don’t get paid to talk to the legislature. Last year Darryl W Perry launched Liberty Lobby (making him the first crowd-funded lobbyist) and I accompanied him to Concord’s state house and recorded a bunch of videos of our various testimony before the state house committees on a variety of issues. You can see them all on the Free Keene YouTube channel.

While we were both in Concord last week, the first week of the 2018 legislative session, we were actually never in the same committee hearing. He attends the election committee hearings (here’s his week wrapup post), and I’m frequently in criminal justice and judiciary committees. So, here are the videos from the hearings I attended:

HB 1566 – This is the most ridiculous video of all of them from Week 1. Keene’s worst state rep, Delmar Burridge, a lover of big, oppressive government, proposed a bill to restrict open carry in multiple places statewide. I spoke against it and he was literally bouncing in his seat with excitement when I pointed out how it was wrong to try to force societal change from the top down. He disagrees, of course. You can jump straight to my testimony here. Here’s the full hearing video:

HB 1778 – State Rep Dick Marple proposes a bill to abolish driver licensing except for commercial purposes. I spoke in favor. This is the full hearing:

HB 1542 – Would legalize the concealed carry of guns on all NH state college campuses. I spoke in favor. This is the full hearing video:

CACR 16 – State Rep Neal Kurk proposes amending the constitution to enshrine the right to privacy from government. I skeptically spoke in favor. This is the full hearing video:

HB 1426 – This awful bill would make revenge porn a sex offender list offense. I spoke against. This is the full hearing video:

HB 1567 – A confusing bill from wannabe tyrant Delmar Burridge that adjusts prostitution penalties up and down. I spoke against. This is the full hearing video:

HB 1504 – Would add civil liberties violations to the purview of the Human Rights Commission. I cautiously spoke in favor. Here’s almost all of the hearing:
