Gun Protest Or AFC Championship? Easy Call

A flyer now circulating for a protest to be held on the steps of the Colorado Capitol this Sunday at high noon:


According to Gun Rights Across America's Facebook page, Sunday's rally is set to be attended by a slew of 2014 Republican political candidates, including Sens. Greg Brophy and Owen Hill, Ken Buck, Tom Tancredo, and many others.

But then the Denver Post's Kurtis Lee took note of a big and kind of obvious problem:

As every Colorado resident not living under a rock knows, the Denver Broncos are in the NFL playoffs, and Sunday at 1PM they'll kick off the AFC championship game at Mile High Stadium against the New England Patriots. Now presumably, of course, this rally was scheduled well in advance of the Broncos making the playoffs–and even if it wasn't, you can't expect these American patriots (note small p) to just stand down while their constitutional rights are being ripped out of their beating chests by godless liberals and paraded before their eyes! With that said, you have to wonder if the organizers of Sunday's rally weren't quietly rooting for the San Diego Chargers last Sunday.

Is it too late to rent a Jumbotron? Otherwise, turnout seems likely to suffer–and not at Mile High.

    I felt threatened when he threw popcorn at me so I fatally shot him.

    These are the same people promoting Victor Head running for Pueblo County Clerk.  Put a plumber in charge of your voting rights! 

    Not hardly.

    Sounds like a good plan . . .

    . . . might help keep a couple of guns out of the stadium!

    Speaking of the gun lobby putting guns in the hands of kids, there has been another school shooting in Roswell, New Mexico this morning. Please keep the families in your thoughts and prayers.

    The ghunfreeks are truly, truly sad. All victims, all the time.

    Yet they appear to have no idea how unbalanced and infantile they look to everyone else….

    I think the Department of Health and Human Services should have Tasers ready and lots of Haldols to put these insane gun toters to the nearest mental institution. That's freedom for you. 

    Gun toting is not freedom of speech, and neither is perverting the Second Amendment to make sure all the insane people can own gun and kill people without any regrets. RMGO and NRA are perfect couple for Darwinsim. People who can't handle guns well will reduce themselves.
