New Hampshire governor Chris Sununu has canceled his outside inauguration ceremony next month because he said protests against his order requiring masks to be worn to mitigate against the coronavirus have become more threatening.

But on Monday, a group called “Absolute Defiance” held a picket outside Sununu’s house, spurring the governor to decide his inauguration on January 7 would be safer if it were held virtually.

Sununu told reporters that “an armed individual was arrested in backyard without over two dozen rounds of ammunition” (I believe this should read “in his backyard with over 2 dozen rounds of ammunition”) and that as governor he was worried about the safety of his family and citizens of the state. “Therefore it was prudent to cancel that event,” he added, WMUR 9 reported.
