Colorado Paper Co-sponsoring Independence Day Parade with 2nd Amendment Rally
With much of the news from Colorado regarding the right to keep and bear arms dominated by “progressive” political gun-grabbers who never met an infringement they weren’t bent on imposing, it’s easy to forget that much of the state is populated by “red” county voters who reject the control freak mentality exemplified by the Hickenlooper Blues. In the end, higher concentrations of collectivists in more densely-inhabited areas resulted in a narrow win for the Democrat governor. Still, it’s important not to lose sight of the fact that the political machine was not powerful enough to keep two Democrats (including the Senate president) from being recalled and another from resigning rather than face humiliation.
The determination to push back against the political control freaks will be on display this Fourth of July at the Westcliffe Colorado Independence Day Second Amendment March/Rally, part of the Custer County July 4th Parade. The rally is being coordinated by the Southern Colorado Patriots Club, and The Sangre de Cristo Sentinel is a co-sponsor of the parade. That’s an independent newspaper that proudly posts its mission:
This newspaper’s main objective is to be the sentry for our fellow citizens and patriots, providing truth, awareness and alerts to dangers while protecting our God-given freedoms and our constitutional rights and liberties.
That’s a far cry from the bitter experience of relying on most Fourth Estate Fifth Columnist papers to do that basic function of a free press. About the rally, Managing Editor George Gramlich tells Oath Keepers:
We started the 2nd Amend rally/march in the parade when the Colorado libs were screwing with our gun rights (over 15 round mag ban, etc) three years ago. We had over 500 people march with us that first year. Been running around 250 – 350 per year. Mike Vanderboegh marched and spoke at the rally two years ago.
We march down Main Street, Westcliffe and then have little rally afterward. We get patriots from all over the west showing up. It is the biggest 2nd amendment event in Colorado and maybe the whole Rockies. Our county sheriff is totally on board with it. (Stewart Rhodes and Mike V. came to our Patriots Day event last year.)
If you’re in the area or know someone who is, why not make plans to attend, and spend the day with like-minded fellow freedom advocates? If you’re not in the area, take note of how things could be done where you live, and take steps to make it so.
