New Hampshire State Sen. Martha Hennessey is a freshman member of the state senate. She had not made up her mind if she was going to run to re-election or not, but now she says her mind was made up to run after seeing a post on the Facebook page of the New Hampshire Firearms Coalition.
The Coalition portrayed Hennessey as a target after she sponsored a bill that would allow each community to ban all firearms from school campuses if they wanted. Her bill has yet to see its first public debate, but it has already been drawing a lot of attention from both sides of the argument.
(WMUR) – Democratic state Sen. Martha Hennessey posted on Facebook Wednesday that an attack on her by the New Hampshire Firearms Coalition convinced her of one thing.

The simplest way to put a liberal politician like Hennessey on the defensive is to ask her publicly why she wants to ban teachers from protecting your kids.

After all, which are more important to most parents?
