    No doubt it's because of the influx of Democrats from Massachusetts. ;)

    .

    There are more gun owners per capita in NH than probably any other NE state, with the possible exception of Maine... who knows what they do up there?! Do they still have the Red October in dry dock, HB??

    Anywho, in NH people know the chances are pretty high that the owner of any given piece of property may be armed, locked, and loaded. Most people can do math in NH.

    Massachusetts #22 is lower than New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine
    because Massachusetts has public transportation.

    http://www.ci.cambridge.ma.us/CPD/reports/1998/factors.html
    Criminals are often indigent and cannot afford cars or other expensive forms of transportation. Areas near public transportation, and particularly subways, witness a higher crime rate-particularly robbery and larceny-than more inaccessable areas

    Just look at the town or Randolph.

    When they started the bus from Mattapan to Randolph crime rate went
    though the roof !

    I'm with Fog. I say guns. For 10 bucks, you walk into city hall and get a background check, then BAM permit to carry. I love this state.

    Not sure it's the Dems from MA Patters, sorry :)

    why don't we start with high school and college grads and then move on to persons below the poverty level.

    New Hampshire certainly appears to have favorable demographics in that regard:

    They don't need no stupid college and high school in NH: they shoot their meat, fish their fish, dig their clams, and grow their roughage (soluble fiber, for your post-modernists) out in the back yard.

    School is for sissies.

    NH succeeds because it isn't a welfare state with enormous taxes. It's a live and let live state that rewards those who work hard, and are independent.

    That's why I love it so. But change is in the air, however...

    Although it would nice it was that simple, taxes probably aren't one of them. Tennessee, for instance, has comparable taxes, but has fairly high crime. I think low population density and proximity to a state like MA (good jobs, great educational institutions, excellent hospitals) play major roles.

    They need to put a quota on immigrants from Massachusetts to NH. The only way to keep taxes under control.

    Less minorities and less illegals.

    The numbers don't lie.

    Lets not be so PC that we can't admit that. Just look at patters example of Tennessee.
