Evil must be exposed. We want to elect those who understand the limitations of government, and the fact that Government was allowed to exist by GOD to protect our universal natural rights and laws that existed way before the earth was created for His children.
— State House Rep. Stella Tremblay (R-Auburn)
I’m under attack for standing up for the U.S. Constitution by voting against flawed legislation that would have compromised our 2nd Amendment rights while doing nothing to prevent horrific tragedies such as Newtown. I won’t back down.
— Sen. Kelly Ayotte, in a fundraising email to supporters
The fight over gun restrictions has moved from Capitol Hill to New Hampshire, and when it comes to spending, the pro-gun control groups are winning.
— Rachel Weiner, Washington Post
The effort to take away firearms is increasing as this is the only way [the President of the United States] and his allies can totally destroy America… .
— State House Rep. JR Hoell (R-Dunbarton)
And, for Kelly Ayotte, in purplish New Hampshire, there even may be significant longterm consequences, which will give sadz to John McCain and Lindsey Graham because the S.S. Dive For The Spotlight will be deprived of a Cruise Director.

In testimony before the House Committee on Fish and Game yesterday, Rep. Al Baldasaro warned that United Nations Agenda 21 is threatening “to slowly get fishermen off the lake.”
Granite State Progress executive director Zandra Rice Hawkins, who captured Baldasaro’s comments on video, responded:
Rep. Al Baldasaro is off his rocker and his rampant conspiracy theories harm public policy making. To suggest that the United Nations is trying to eliminate fishing in New Hampshire or take over our country is beyond bizarre.
To which Baldasao replied:
Tell Progress to get their heads out of their butts and get with the program.
Wait, said the rest of New Hampshire. Stop, Stella Tremblay — STELLAAAAAAA!!!! — we are not as nuts as you are. Undaunted, Sheila soldiered on, lonely warrior for truth. I don’t know why she spells “neighbours” like she’s Princess Margaret or someone. Stella got 4,460 votes the last time she ran. Or at least, that’s what They want you to believe. Well done, Rockingham 4 district!
— Charles P. Pierce, on the reaction to state House Rep. Stella Tremblay declaring the U.S. government masterminded the Boston Marathon bombing
I have no hope for Ayotte who, between this fiasco and her performance piece on the Benghazi attacks, is plainly casting herself as Sarah Palin With Verbs.
— Charles P. Pierce, on Sen. Kelly Ayotte, after her vote against a bipartisan compromise to expand background checks for gun purchasers.
Remember, this is the Saul Alinsky crowd. It’s what they do best. Who the hell cares what these people think.
— Jack Kimball, former New Hampshire Republican Party chair, on Miscellany Blue.
The HONOR YOUR OATH RALLY is taking place on Saturday the 13th. This rally is the inspiration of Jack Kimball, who is desperate to regain credibility and power. Oh, the wailing and gnashing of teeth! A bill was passed by the House that would return NH’s gun law to where it was when it was signed into law in 1972 by well known liberal Meldrim Thomson! Oh, the injustice of it all!
— Susan Bruce, on the pro-gun rally organized by former New Hampshire GOP chair Jack Kimball to protest the House vote repealing “stand your ground”
My personal opinion on the Colorado issue is that the Sheriff’s need to arrest the Governor. Their Governor is actually giving up his State Sovereignty to the Feds. He is also putting the lives of his Country Sheriff’s in jeapordy. If the Sheriff’s don’t nip this in the bud, there is sure to be a very bad outcome. This may sound extreme but it is time to take extreme measures.
— Jack Kimball, former New Hampshire Republican Party chair, on Colorado’s landmark gun safety law.
