Former New Hampshire Republican Party chair Jack Kimball on why he opposes proposals to ban assault weapons and high capacity magazines:
The main reason for the Second Amendment … is because our founders knew that this day would come. They understood clearly, that we may have to fight off an oppressive and tyrannical government and the only way you can do that was to have compatible arms as the oppressors do. That’s why you have to have semi-automatic weapons. That’s why you have to have high capacity magazines.
