    As police investigate a pair of murders in a tiny New Hampshire town, residents are coming to terms with the shocking nature of the crime: a child is accused of fatally shooting a couple one cloudy Friday morning inside their rural home. The 911 call came around 7:30 a.m. on March 15. Cops arrived to the Eckert family’s farm and discovered Lizette, a 50-year-old mother of three, dead of a gunshot wound. Her husband James, 48, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. He died later that evening. Friends described the couple as healers. They were both health-conscious chiropractors...

    CONCORD -- New Hampshire residents will face expanded background checks and a seven-day waiting period for gun purchases if a pair of bills passed in the House of Representatives become law. The House voted Tuesday to expand background checks for private gun sales and transfers, as well as add a seven-day waiting period before a sale can be completed. The bill, which passed on a 203-148 vote, would close a loophole in the current New Hampshire law that allows for private firearm transactions to take place at gun shows without a background check.

    Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ongoing tease of a presidential run didn’t exactly pull in the crowds during a campaign-esque event in the Granite State. Only 20 people showed up Sunday to hear the leader of America’s largest city hold a roundtable on mental health — including the 14 people on the panel and just six in the audience. There were also about six reporters on hand to make the room at the Sugar River Valley Regional Technical Center look a bit less empty.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand officially entered the ever-growing pool of Democratic presidential hopefuls Sunday, ending the two-month-long exploratory phase of her campaign saying she’s running for the White House to make “big, bold, brave choices.” “Our anthem asks a question, forcing every generation to make a choice,” Gillibrand says in a video released Sunday morning. “Will brave win? Let’s answer for ours." **SNIP** After Sunday’s video announcement, Gillibrand heads to Michigan on Monday for an MSNBC town hall with Chris Hayes; to Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday; and to Nevada on Thursday. She’ll then cap off...

    Full Headline: Awkward: Shannon Watts Assumes Pearl Wearing Legislators Targeted Her Group But One Tweet Proves That Theory Wrong Republican members of the New Hampshire House of Representatives have sparked social media outrage after wearing pearls during a hearing on Extreme Risk Protection Orders, commonly referred to as "red flag laws." Many state legislatures are considering implementing these laws, which would make it easier for police to confiscate a person's guns if he or she is believed to be a threat to themselves or others. According to the Washington Post, the legislators' motives were easy to see. "The implication was...

    We should be finding out whether or not Joe Biden will be running for president any… day… now. Of course, I’m fairly sure I wrote that exact same line back before Christmas, so nobody but Crazy Uncle Joe knows for sure. Still, the clock is ticking and Biden has been making a lot of moves that suggest he’s not just doing this to attract attention. This week, however, we learned that the one thing that would have given Biden the perfect excuse to sail off into retirement is no longer on the table. His family is reportedly onboard with...

    Full title: Where's Elizabeth Warren's 'reparations' to American Indians for stealing that affirmative action slot? So Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is all in for American taxpayers paying reparations to American Indians, along with black people, for wrongs past. According to Fox News: 2020 presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., expanded on an already-radical proposal on Friday, telling reporters that Native Americans should be “part of the conversation” on reparations for African-Americans -- a move that threatens to bring back her own history with Native Americans. Taking questions from reporters ahead of a Democratic Party fundraiser in Manchester, N.H., Warren,...

    Mayor de Blasio took his presidential ambitions to Iowa on Saturday night, where he’s deploying a head-scratcher campaign strategy: trash talking Hillary Clinton and praising President Trump - and all the while still not declaring his candidacy. Only 25 Sioux City residents braved a blizzard to hear Hizzoner insist he’d do a better job than Clinton at leading Democrats. Clinton spent too much time trashing her Republican opponent in 2016, the mayor complained. “We’re not going to win by talking about Donald Trump,” the mayor said inside a cavernous bar.local bar as a blizzard raged outside. “I have deep respect...

    You could be forgiven if you thought that the media onslaught against conservatives the last few years would have an effect on how most of the country views the right. That media campaign - directed against Donald Trump but also against conservatives - has been unprecedented in its scope and intensity. Conservatives are routinely portrayed as racist, sexist, homophobic, anti-Muslim, and paranoid xenophobes.  But Gallup found some remarkable conservative strength all across the country. Their latest survey shows that liberals outnumber conservatives in only 6 states and that there are 25 states where conservatives are polling above their national average....

    The Democratic Party establishment is about to experience the same kind of internal warfare the GOP faced in 2010 and beyond with the rise of the so-called “Tea Party” movement, and it’s liable to have a deleterious effect on the party in 2020. The rising “Democratic Socialist” faction has only just begun to flex its muscle, having won a few seats during the November midterms but clearly looking to capitalize on those gains in 2020 and beyond. Its members are feisty, defiant, fiercely suspicious of the Democratic hierarchy, and champing at the bit to shed the last vestiges of political...

    The number of states where liberals outnumber conservatives has dropped more than 30 percent, with just six now in that category: Massachusetts, Hawaii, Vermont, Washington, New York, and New Hampshire. According to the latest Gallup survey, in every other state but California, where conservatives and liberals split 29 percent to 29 percent, conservatives lead. Nationally, those who identify themselves conservative hold a nine-point lead. Before conservatives start to cheer, Gallup said the gap used to be 21 points and a handful of the state numbers fall in the margin of error. But the survey still shows a large swath of...
