Aurora “No More Names” Protest

Today is the anniversary of the day when certifiable lunatic James Holmes shot up a midnight screening of the then-new film “The Dark Knight Rises” at a theater in Aurora, Colorado. This crime was, of course, one of the events utilized by the anti-gun left in an effort to ram through new (and mostly unrelated) gun control laws at both the national level and in many state capitols.

One of the main players in this effort has been NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “astroturf” organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns. What exactly is an “illegal gun,” you ask? Basically, it’s whatever they decide they don’t like this week. Guns that are too big…too small…the wrong color…have too much salt… :)

Recently, the group has been engaged on a new stunt known as the “No More Names” tour. This consists of them showing up at different locations with a custom tour bus, gathering up as many reporters as possible, and reading off the names of victims of “gun violence.” At an event a few weeks ago, their list of “victims” included such notables as Chechen terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev (who was, in fact, killed when his pop icon brother ran over him with a stolen car in an attempt to save his own jihadist ass) and former LAPD officer turned mass murderer Christopher Dorner. Oops. Maybe they should have spent a little more on fact-checking and less on the spiffy bus.

Anyway, since today is the anniversary of the Aurora theater shooting (and since nobody would show up to cover them on a Saturday), the bus turned up in Colorado yesterday. They were apparently unable to secure a suitable location anywhere in the city itself, so they settled on a picnic area at Cherry Creek State Park. It’s a nice enough location, but a bit out of the way for a successful protest (not to mention charging $9 per car to get in). Leia and I didn’t have anything much going on, so we decided to make the trip up north to see what they were up to. We flipped a coin to see who would drive. (I drove, and Leia bought lunch)

The bus wasn’t too hard to find:

Or the media…

Yes, that was all of them.

Leia made some new friends while we were there. They decided to start a group of their own, called “Dogs Against Illegal Mayors”

Apparently, the “No More Names” people stayed on site until 12:38 AM, the time Holmes began his shooting spree last year. I’m pretty sure that they were all alone, because the media quickly lost interest. I did have a nice chat with a reporter from the Washington Times, who quoted me in her story.

Several speakers blamed “gun violence” for the deaths  of their family  members, which Jeff Gunn of Colorado Springs  said wasn’t  entirely accurate.

“No, they were killed by crazy people,” said Mr.  Gunn.  “What they’re not saying is that all those people passed background   checks, except the Sandy Hook shooter, who stole his guns.”

Leia had no comment.

    Good job. Emotionalizing against guns and the 2nd amendment is un patriotic. We have guns. We’ll have accidents and murders with them. Part of the cost of liberty.

    People who are truly crazy and violent are eligible for welfare checks by the police and a social worker. We just don’t do it because of the cost. If they didn’t have a gun, they would use a car or a knife.

    Nice report, lobo :-)

    Apparently those mayors have to much time on their hands.

    They should get even more time if you understand what I mean :-)

    or a self constructed flamethrower as one mass killer did in Germany

    You won’t stop a crazy guy with a gun, but three hollow points will slow him down to a barely perceptable crawl.

    You rarely hear about people moving too far after a couple of .40 hollow points. When that happens, it’s usually 9mm.

    @ lobo91:
    Great post and HUZZAH to you and Leia. If the No More Names twits were really serious about actual gun violence, as opposed to gun control, they should take their road show to Chicago where there have been over 1000 shooting and 231 homicides since January. 90% of the carnage is black on black.

    @ huckfunn:

    And probably only a handful have been solved.

    @ huckfunn:

    They won’t take that bus to Chicago. It’s too big of a target.

    Yep. They probably want to avoid any city with major gun homicides. Detroit for example.

    @ huckfunn:

    It’s ONLY 90%? Dang, I thought it was higher!

    OOT is up!

    Thanks for attending this protest!
