Why are civilian disarmament advocates so violent? . . . Gun control advocate pleads guilty to assaulting gun rights activist during election recount
The charge stems from an incident that took place last November, during a state Senate race recount at the state archives building on South Fruit Street.
Susan Olsen, a prominent gun-rights activist, was volunteering as a Republican observer to watch the recount between incumbent Democrat Andrew Hosmer and Republican Harold French. Olsen claimed that when she asked counters to move ballots closer so she could better see them, (New Hampshire State Rep. Katherine) Rogers, who was volunteering as a Democratic observer, smacked her upside the head.
After pleading guilty, Rogers had a $1000 fine suspended (for “good behavior” no less), but will have to attend an anger management class to learn how to behave in a civil manner around those with whom she disagrees politically.
Rogers’ attorney, William Christie, said Friday his client, who has often sponsored gun-control legislation, had merely “touched” Olsen, but accepted responsibility.
Rogers — who was named…wait for it…New Hampshire’s Humane Legislator of the Year in 2017 — apparently doesn’t think law abiding citizens of New Hampshire should be trusted with the responsibility for keeping and bearing arms. Can you say…projection?
