Meet RMGO’s Latest “Gun Grabber”

The hard-charging Rocky Mountain Gun Owners group has found a new target (metaphorically speaking) for their anger over Colorado’s 2013 gun safety laws:


That’s right, folks! Former Attorney General John Suthers, now a candidate for mayor of Colorado Springs, is under fire (again, metaphor) for his “defense” of the 2013 gun laws–both in court defending the state from lawsuits, and in the form of a technical memo on enforcement of the magazine limit law, House Bill 13-1224, that debunked a large percentage of the hysteria being promoted by the very same RMGO.

Former Colorado Attorney General argued AGAINST your Second Amendment rights in court, and now he wants to be Mayor of Colorado Springs. If you or someone you know lives in Colorado Springs, please don’t vote for this gun-grabber.

The detail RMGO director Dudley Brown seems to not wish to acknowledge is that as Colorado’s Attorney General, Suthers was obliged to defend the gun safety laws passed by the General Assembly and signed into law by Gov. John Hickenlooper. Suthers made no secret of his personal opposition to the 2013 gun laws, but that wasn’t enough to induce Suthers to shirk his duties as AG. We have heard that Suthers found some of the hyperbole from fellow Republicans about the gun laws to be absurd, such as their claims that the laws would ‘ban gun ownership’ or ‘ban all magazines.’ That acknowledgement of reality is a far cry from lumping Suthers in with the dreaded “gun grabbers.”

But as we know after watching RMGO these last few years, reality has little to do with it.

    Time to crank up the cash machine — Dudley probably needs a new car because the ash trays are full.

    This is just about money, as everyone already knows.

      That, or there’s one other way this would all make sense:  anyone know if there’s another Nevillette down Somalia Springs way that Dudley would be pulling strings for???

      Nothing says “Thank God I’m A Country Boy” like a BMW crossover.

      Latest product line for those profiting from the ignorance and paranoia of RMGO and NAGR clients:  Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse. Seriously. There are lines of guns and ammo, and “non profit charities” raking in bazillions with this scam.

      I saw this truck today: (It had a National Association for Gun Rights  – Dudley B’s national lobbying group) sticker in the window, as well as the impressive Zombie Response Team logo.

      Manny Shewitz had the definitive word on this:

        Don’t be fooled by that “zombie” nonsense, Mama; that’s nothing but wink-wink-nudge-nudge code.  Right-thinking gunners have all been taught that when the acopalypse hits the fan, the subhuman targets they’ll be itching to blow away won’t be white-skinned.

        He looks as if he’s been ingesting too much crystal meth…………..

    It will be interesting to see if RMGO is just going to attack Suthers–as a show that they will assault anyone who goes against them–or if they also will give active support to mayor candidate Amy Lathen, who is one of their kind on guns.

    Go Dudley!

  4. RINOPreserve says:

    The NERVE of Suthers, that evil RINO grabbed your guns by legally doing what his job is. He probably has homosex with DAN THURLOW THE RINO.

  5. Moderatus says:

    Cause and effect. I predict Suthers will win, but he should answer the questions about this.

    • bullshit! says:

      RMGO is a cancer on your party. But I love watching you eat your own!

    • Big Time says:

      Answer what questions?

      RMGO is a hype machine, used to delude know nothings into thinking they are the Second Coming of the American Patriots … one glaring difference, of course, is, instead of using muskets to get what they want, these modern day “patriots” are asked to open their wallets and send screaming emails and voicemails to legislators in this particular Revolutionary War re-enactment fantasy.

      March on brave patriots, march on … there’s always another battle to fight, always more money to fork over.

    As a politician, if you vote in any way against our Constitutional Rights, and in this case of the 2nd Amendment, you should be considered a gun grabber.  RMGO is a NO COMPROMISE organization, you vote wrong they will call you out on it. 

    • bullshit! says:

      Except that Suthers didn’t vote on anything. As AG, he defends the laws of the state of Colorado. Also, nothing in those laws violates the Second Amendment. Maybe your looney bin interpretation, but that’s not binding on anybody.

      Welcome to Colorado Pols.

    • Big Time says:

      Amen, brother – that’s just how Dudley wants em’, riled up, hopped up on Revolutionary War, Continental Army delusions of grandeur … sorta like Revlon selling lipstick to tweens – it’s just not a fair fight … it’s just too easy to bilk the easily impressionable. But you gotta hand it to Dudley, he’s the master at it.

      March on brave patriot, march on

    • BlueCat says:

      The courts haven’t found any of the modest gun legislation that was passed unconstitutional so that’s bull. AGs, as Bullshit pointed out, aren’t legislators. They just enforce the laws that the legislature passes. More bull. You don’t know WTF you’re talking about, like most of your ignorant friends.

  7. I suppose now is the time to apologize to former AG Suthers. I seem to remember attacking him for being so vigilant in defending the state’s LGBT discrimination statutes/amendment, calling him overzealous in a partisan manner because of the issue involved. Now it seems I have to acknowledge that he did the same for the gun measures despite his personal opposition to those measures.

    Sorry, Mr. Suthers. Have fun with RMGO in your mayoral bid.
