Plans by a gun-rights group to participate in ceremonies on Friday marking one year since the Aurora theater shooting have drawn criticism from some participants who say the group doesn't belong.
"This mental health legislation targets law-abiding gun owners to strip them of their right to self-defense without a crime ever being committed," said Danielle Thompson, press secretary for the National Association for Gun Rights, in an email.
RMGO spokeswoman Danielle Thompson said the mayors' group is using the anniversary to promote gun-control legislation, noting that MAIG has actively pushed for firearms restrictions in Colorado.
