Sounds about par for the course, always an adventure to see how the other side lives...

I like reading their posts for the facepalm factor...like driving by a car wreck, you know you shouldn't look but you just can't help yourself...

Unfortunately, attempting to silence those who oppose your viewpoint is the normal stock in trade of all extremists, whether far left or far right.

The sad part is that extremists will attack their own natural allies just as quickly and as viciously as they attact their enemies if that ally isn't viewed as adequately extremist. Just look at the folks here who bitterly attack the NRA.

not just the NRA, but other shooting enthusiasts are often attacked when posters disagree with their stance. its simply amazing how fast you will be called "liberal" or "left" or "brainwashed," if your opinion varies on some subjects from the general population. pay attention to how much this happens...

After action report:

Quote:
Today new gun control laws limiting ammunition magazine capacity to 15 rounds go into effect in Colorado. Magpul industries, a company based in Colorado that manufactures standard capacity 30-round magazines and firearms accessories, held an event over the weekend to give away thousands of magazines, flooding the state before the ban goes into effect.
Gun-owners and gun-lovers converged on Infinity Park on Saturday afternoon in a last-minute protest against a new Colorado law banning the sale of magazines of more than 15 rounds.

"You are in the Vatican of liberty, the Luxembourg of freedom," Glendale Mayor Mike Dunfon told the crowd at the beginning of the rally.

Organizers say some 5,000 people attended the "Farewell to Arms Freedom" festival, which was hosted by Free Colorado, a nonprofit group that advocates for firearms rights.

Hours before the event began, people formed a line over a half- mile long outside the park. The first 1,500 who were at least 18 years old were handed tickets they could redeem for a free 30-round magazine, courtesy of Magpul Industries.

Magpul donated a total of 20,000 magazines for the event, which featured live music, speakers and food. All the free magazines arrived, with great fanfare, via helicopter.
Event organizers brought in talk radio host Dana Loesch (who is banned from Piers Morgan's television show) via helicopter to distribute the magazines.



And the best part? Money raised from the event will help fund recalls of politicians who voted for the magazine bans.
The rest were sold at a discounted price of $10, with all of the proceeds going to the group's recall efforts against state Senate President John Morse and state Sen. Angela Giron, both Democrats.
Magpul is in talks to take their business, and jobs, elsewhere.

In the very least entertaining as comical as their uneducated and unfounded ideas can be.
