CONCORD – A legislative advocate for gun owners planned to lead a small public protest outside a private meeting between Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Scott Brown and the board of directors with Gun Owners of New Hampshire.

State Rep. J.R. Hoell, R-Dunbarton, said he has formed a private company, “Not Brown,” to signify his opposition to the former Massachusetts senator, who is in a four-way primary for the right to face Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., this November. ...

CONCORD – A legislative advocate for gun owners planned to lead a small public protest outside a private meeting between Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Scott Brown and the board of directors with Gun Owners of New Hampshire.

State Rep. J.R. Hoell, R-Dunbarton, said he has formed a private company, “Not Brown,” to signify his opposition to the former Massachusetts senator, who is in a four-way primary for the right to face Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., this November.

“He’s no defender of the Second Amendment – or the First Amendment, for that matter,” Hoell said.

The Telegraph first reported last week that Brown had agreed to meet with the board on one of many grass-roots organizations that represent gun owners in the state.

They met at the Concord Holiday Inn, and the GO-NH board agreed to close the session with Brown to the media and public.

While in the Massachusetts Legislature, Brown voted for a ban on assault weapons in that state.

After the Newtown tragedy in Connecticut, Brown voiced support for some form of increased gun control.

But as a candidate, Brown has said he’s a defender of Second Amendment rights and would be a much better choice for gun owners than Shaheen.
