Gun Nut Assholes Afoot As Primary Election Nears

  • 6 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

FOX 31 reports, with passions running as high as ever over the issue of gun control and the primary elections just a couple of weeks away, the issue’s trademark nastiness was bound to bubble up sooner or later:

A man said he is rattled and his children are frightened after someone put a target practice paper with bullet holes in his backyard one day after he put up a sign for a Democratic gubernatorial candidate in his front yard…

Ryan is a supporter of Mike Johnston, the former state legislator now running for governor of Colorado in 2018. On Friday, he planted a sign for Johnston in his yard.

On Saturday, Ryan said someone put a target practice paper in his backyard with bullet holes in it.

“It was so surreal. I think here in Stapleton, you think you are in a bubble but it brought me back to reality,” said Ryan.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate¬†Mike Johnston has made gun safety a major campaign theme, so it’s not a surprise that his name has come to be associated with the issue in the minds of angry supporters of gun rights–and with public opinion turning against the laissez faire interpretation of the Second Amendment that has prevailed in recent years, ardent gun rights supporters, especially in the state of Colorado, are very angry. That makes this incident deplorable, but unsurprising in the least.

On the upside, for every piece of human debris who thinks this kind of intimidation is cool there are a dozen who will be just a little bit more anti-gun after they see it.
