In the aftermath of President Obama’s 24 “executive actions,” (the 24th being his decision to use kids as propaganda in an effort to promote the other 23) citizens from state capitols around the nation gathered to voice their opposition to the Obama Administration’s gun control policies.

The general problem with assault weapons has to do with social psychology and linguistic psychology. Ask yourself these questions. Which sounds/looks more menacing and looks more dangerous? A teddy bear, or an assault weapon? And since gun makers make high capacity clips for pistols, what is the purpose of limiting how many rounds a person can have in their gun? The gun owner can always figure out a place to buy more ammo clips. It’s similar to Michael Bloomberg’s idea of limiting soft drinks to only 16 ounces. A person can always buy more than one drink. And what do assault weapons and pistols have in common? With proper aim, they will kill the target. Other than that, the issue with assault weapons is purely cosmetic. Enjoy the photographs.

The events in Wisconsin have reverberated through the nation, and Colorado is no exception. Proving that what happens in Wisconsin does not stay in Wisconsin, the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) and local Tea Party activists held what was billed as a “solidarity” rally on the west steps of the Colorado State Capitol.

Depending on which side of the political isle you are on, the SEIU members at this event were either concerned about working families, or they were advocates of Charles Ponzi style economics. The people at the top of the steps were SEIU members while those on the sidewalk near the streets were for the most part Tea Party activists.

The Tea Party supporters chanted phrases like “Scott Walker, Right Choice!” & “Tax payers first!” While the SEIU members shouted phrases like “Don’t drink the tea!” & Wall Street Tool!” & “Kill the bill!”

The event was relatively peaceful (even though it was noisy) and there were no arrests.

Here are photographs from this event
