Governor Sununu Defends Right To Peacefully Protest in NH
The Shark is your safe space when it comes to everything going wrong in the world. We are the station that you turn to when everything is closed, the murder hornets are on the way and people are dying right in front of our eyes.
We try to maintain business as usual.
That's why whenever we have Governor Sununu on the show, we always keep it light. I have to think that maybe he feels like coming on The Shark is a break from all the hard questions that he has to face every day because he is not going to face them here.
I often think of how tough it must be to walk that fine line you have to walk if you are a leader of any kind, so I was very happy to see this report from WMUR that said that the Governor has defended our right to protest.
They cited the Governor as saying:
We're going to be ready in each of those instances with that combined team, that combined force, to make sure that protest and those voices are heard in a very positive and constructive way, but if there are going to be additional elements that try to come in to try to wreak havoc, we're going to continue to be prepared.
The Governor is defending the First Amendment, which is near and dear to my heart. If you are not familiar with what it states, here it is, according to law.cornell.edu:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
