Quartzsite Councilman Joe Winslow earned the nickname "Machine Gun" after he was caught on the town hall microphone before the March 23rd, 2010 town council meeting was called to order saying "I think if we could get all five of them in the front row, we'd just machine gun 'em" Councilman Lukkasson replied "Damn fine idea!"
"And they're contacting people all over the country with similar political beliefs, and that's why we had to DECLARE A STATE OF EMERGENCY"
"Based on my history, 24 years in the service, I'm more concerned about my reaction to his aggression"
"I've been diagnosed with PTSD and I'm a member of the DAV (Disabled American Veterans). And it is, that's what I'm concerned with, that he's going to get so far into my personal space that I'm going to react, and without thinking. It's just, I'm not making threats or anything like that...I'm not proud of that but It's just the way I am."
"I'm in a position where I felt it necessary for me to go out and purchase a gun, and I did. I went out and I bought a 12 gauge shotgun."
"If nothing else I would like to see him (Roth) disarmed."
