Rep. JR Hoell: Armed resistance ‘may be the next step’

Discussing plans to protest Scott Brown’s appearance at a party fundraiser, state Rep. JR Hoell (R-Dunbarton) says, “We’re not here to threaten anybody.” But, he warns, “that may be the next step:”

We’re not here to threaten anybody. We’re here standing on our soapbox as opposed to standing with our ammo box in hand to make a point politically. The message needs to get out that Scott Brown does not represent New Hampshire.

If things continue the way they are, there may be a day or a time where firearms and ammo are necessary. It happened in the Revolutionary War. I’d like to think we’re not there yet, but as things continue to unravel, that may be the next step.
