Bulls-eye: Colorado 2nd Amendment supporters dare gun control crowd to post sign at homes, offices
Question of the Day
DENVER — The Pueblo County Republican Party is offering firearms foes an opportunity to advertise their gun-free status for all to see.
The party is selling "Gun Free Zone" signs suitable for display outside of homes and offices for $10 each. The party is also offering signs to gun rights advocates that read, "Not a Gun Free Zone."
So far, party Chairwoman Becky Mizel says she's heard from many callers interested in buying the "Not a Gun Free Zone" placard, which is displayed outside the party headquarters in Pueblo.
The "Gun Free Zone" signs? Not so much, even though the party is offering to deliver the placards free of charge to Democratic state legislators who voted in favor of the three far-reaching gun control bills approved by the legislature in March.
"If they truly believe in their principles and ideals, we think they would gladly take a sign and post it in their front yard," said George Rivera, the party's director of community outreach.
Mr. Rivera, a retired deputy police chief, said he was inspired by Project Veritas, which sent a crew offering to place "Gun Free Zone" signs outside the homes of journalists working for New York and New Jersey publications that ran a map last year identifying the homes of gun owners.
James O'Keefe, president of Project Veritas, said in an email he "stood proudly" with Colorado Republicans in their effort.
In a January video on the Project Veritas website, the journalists are seen refusing to display the signs. The crew is turned away by armed security at several homes, including that of Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in the District.
Mr. Rivera said he would personally deliver a sign to state Sen. Angela Giron, a Pueblo Democrat who supported the Colorado gun control measures, if she gave him the go-ahead.
"We welcome her to call and we'll come place it in her yard, provided she keeps it up until the next legislative session," Mr. Rivera said.
