    New Hampshire Town Allows All Employees to Carry Guns at Work - ABC News

    The manager of the small New Hampshire town of Nottingham doesn't understand all the fuss surrounding the decision to allow town employees to bring their guns to work.

    "Everyone wants to know if I'm packing," Charles Brown told ABCNews.com. "Honestly, all the hoopla is over the top."

    For Brown and other officials in the town of 4,800, it's a matter of constitutional rights.

    Under the old legislation, all Nottingham employees except police officers were banned from brining their guns onto town property during work hours. The town's selectmen voted last week to allow guns on municipal property, and the change went into effect on Thursday.

    Nottingham isn't alone. Across the nation, states increasingly are loosening gun laws in a trend that legal experts predict will intensify following Monday's Supreme Court decision supporting the right to keep and bear arms. The ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago will only open more state gun-control laws to legal challenges, according to experts. Two years ago, the high court decided that a similar law in the District of Columbia violated the Second Amendment, a precedent that was extended to state and local gun laws around the country.

    Not a good idea.

    That's one opinion. I say very good idea. Whatever...

    This is an awesome news item. Very gutsy of the town council. In my town several of the employees are felons!

    Yeah . . . ummm . . . no.

    I support carrying in a LOT of places. That's not one that I support.

    As an airline pilot, I think that I (and a LOT of other people) would just quit and take up television repair.

    Trust me - it is NEVER coming.
