Constitution of New Hampshire - 1784
Part I - The Bill of Rights
III. When men enter into a state of society, they surrender up some of
their natural rights to that society, in order to ensure the
protection of others; and, without such an equivalent, the surrender
XXIV. A well-regulated militia is the proper, natural and sure
defence of a state.
No individual gun right under the New Hampshire Constitution of 1783.
Or under the New Hampshire Constitution of 1792. Or 1902...
Live free or die.
Good to know and even better McDonald v. Chicago cleared that issue up.
Sorry, it's a universal requirement of free societies.
Sec. 243. To conclude, The power that every individual gave
the society, when he entered into it, can never revert to
the individuals again, as long as the society lasts, but
will always remain in the community; because without this
there can be no community, no common-wealth, which is
contrary to the original agreement: so also when the society
hath placed the legislative in any assembly of men, to
continue in them and their successors, with direction and
authority for providing such successors, the legislative can
never revert to the people whilst that government lasts;
because having provided a legislative with power to continue
for ever, they have given up their political power to the
legislative, and cannot resume it. But if they have set
limits to the duration of their legislative, and made this
supreme power in any person, or assembly, only temporary; or
else, when by the miscarriages of those in authority, it is
forfeited; upon the forfeiture, or at the determination of
the time set, it reverts to the society, and the people have
a right to act as supreme, and continue the legislative in
themselves; or erect a new form, or under the old form place
it in new hands, as they think good.
John Locke. The Second Treatise of Civil Government (1690)
"Live free or die" means that IF YOU REFUSE to surrender a significant
part of your natural rights, which includes your right to keep and
bear arms granted by the states, THEN FOR YOU FREEDOM WILL DIE.
Because everybody else is practicing this guiding principle of
liberty, and you're trying to hold it hostage.
