TEA Party will meet next in Moultonborough on Wednesday, May 17

To The Daily Sun,
The Lakes Region TEA Party will meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 17 at the Moultonborough Library. Our speakers will include State Representative Norman Silber (Gilford & Meredith) and Jim Thompson.
Representative Silber will discuss recent changes to New Hampshire's gun laws and continuing threats to our Second Amendment rights. Despite the new pro-Second Amendment administration, special interest groups and people who only want criminals to have guns are trying harder than ever to take guns away from law-abiding citizens.
Jim Thompson will update us about the Refugee Resettlement Program and other local and state efforts related to refugees in New Hampshire.

We will also get an update on important legislative actions in Concord.

The Moultonborough Library is located at 4 Holland Street. The public is invited to attend to listen, learn, and respectfully participate in our discussions.
