Controversies

'Stand your ground' email language

On April 1, 2013, Hansen sent an email message to colleagues responding to a fellow representative's speech regarding the state's stand your ground law; the message contained language referring to women that prompted criticism:

There were two critical ingredients missing in the illustrious stories purporting to demonstrate the practical side of retreat. Not that retreat may not be possible mind you. What could possibly be missing from those factual tales of successful retreat in VT, Germany, and the bowels of Amsterdam? Why children and vagina's (sic) of course. While the tales relate the actions of a solitary male the outcome cannot relate to similar situations where children and women and mothers are the potential victims.

Hansen later apologized, saying that his use of the word "vaginas" was meant to raise readers' awareness in opposing a bill to repeal New Hampshire's stand your ground law, and that his intent was not malicious.[4]
