State House Civ-Dis

On January 3, I went to the NH State House Open House to test the new rule that prohibits weapons in certain areas of the building. I was NOT violating the rule, however I was open-carrying something that appeared to be a firearm.

In the hour I was there, I was in the gallery for nearly half an hour. I wanted to walk onto the House floor, but it was blocked off due to performances or various choirs. I also walked around most parts of the State House.

In the end, nothing happened; much to my surprise, no one said anything about the item I was open-carrying, and I was not asked to leave. I’m still not sure whether to call this protest/stunt a success. What do you think?
