New Hampshire license plates espouse a powerful statement of freedom, “Live Free or Die”, but some elected Reps in the State legislature seem to believe otherwise.
A new Bill before the house shows how far freedom and courage has fallen.
It is proposed that an employee of a retail business can witness against a person for refusing to comply with them and have someone charged with second degree assault JUST FOR FAILING TO COMPLY (no assault or threat of assault is needed).
“A person is guilty of a class B misdemeanor if such person assaults, threatens to assault, or refuses to comply…”
HB 493-FN – AS INTRODUCED
2021 SESSION 21-0784 04/11 HOUSE BILL 493-FN
AN ACT establishing a criminal penalty for an assault committed against a person who is conveying public health or safety guidance or requirements during a declared state of emergency.
Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:
I-a. A person is guilty of a class B misdemeanor if such person assaults, threatens to assault, or refuses to comply with another who the actor knows to be:
(a) A person who, as part of his or her employment duties, is relaying directions for health care or safety from his or her supervisor or employer or relaying health or safety guidelines, recommendations, regulations, or rules from a federal, state, or local public health agency or health or safety requirements contained in a state of emergency declared by the federal, state, or local government; and
(b) The act occurs during a state of emergency declared by the governor due to a public health emergency and for a period of 6 months after such declaration.
2 Effective Date. This act shall take effect January 1, 2022.
What say you New Hampshire folk? IS this good with you?
If you are from another state, is your’s next or already on the way?
NOTE: why “refuse to comply” when you can “respectfully decline” and note your constitutional exemption.
