CONCORD — Gun control activist Shannon Watts of Colorado, who founded Moms Demand Action for Guns Sense after the Sandy Hook school massacre, started a social media firestorm on Tuesday with a tweet from the New Hampshire State House.

Watts tweeted pictures of male lawmakers sporting long pearl necklaces to her nearly 300,000 followers as she observed the morning session of Tuesday’s hearing on a red flag law proposed in the Granite State. Red flag laws allow for the confiscation of firearms from an individual who may be a risk to himself or others, based on a judge’s order.

“Male New Hampshire lawmakers on the hearing committee wearing pearls to mock @MomsDemand volunteers and gun safety advocates,” Watts tweeted.

A Goffstown State Representative predicted New Hampshire would see a school shooting and “dead children” if lawmakers passed a statewide “gun-free zone” bill.

The comments came during the debate for House Bill 564, which would establish a blanket ban on loaded firearms on school grounds or school buses, making exceptions for law enforcement officials and those picking up children who leave their unloaded firearms in their vehicles.
