Ding-Dong! The Witch is Dead!

(post updated - bumped to top)

That witch being NH House Bill 1354.

One more win for the free people of New Hampshire.

UPDATE: Here's the roll call vote from yesterday.

The first thing I noticed was that Rep. Kjellman, the sole sponsor of this unconstitutional piece of garbage actually voted in the affirmative on the motion to ITL, which I thought seemed more than a little odd.

Then, I clicked on the link above and saw this:

Wednesday, March 19, 2008 ... Reconsideration (Rep Kjellman): MF DIV 56-249

Jenn Coffey, NH State Coordinator for the Second Amendment Sisters, posting at the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance forum writes:

It is my understanding that she tried to move for a reconsideration, that she "mistakenly" voted wrong on her own bill.

No comment.

UPDATE II: OK, maybe a little bit of comment.

Bear in mind, Representative Kjellman was sitting in the room when the bill was voted ITL 9-1 in the Legislative Administration Committee executive session a few weeks back. She sat there as the nine "yea" votes were recorded, so she should have a clue as to how this voting thing works.

But, then again, when she tried to address the committee that day, she had to be told that it was not allowed at the closed session. She claimed ignorance of the rules at that time, as well.
