Appearing at a Colorado gun show and rally on Saturday supporting the recall election of gun control advocate and state Senate President John Morse (D), Republican blogger and Internet radio host Dana Loesch took the stage with a unique, weaponized cover of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.
“On my way here this morning flying in from St. Louis, I thought of a civil rights leader,” Loesch said. “He made a very impassioned speech, a historic speech, in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington. I too have a dream. I have a dream that one day we as law-abiding, God-fearing, America-loving, Second Amendment-exercising gun owners will be judged on the strength of our character and not the content of our magazines!”
Loesch was airlifted in to the “Farewell to Arms” rally by weapons-maker Magpul along with 20,000 extended magazines carrying 20-30 bullets each, which the company donated to benefit a group that claims to be running the recall effort. That effort recently turned in more than twice the number of signatures needed to land on the statewide ballot if they’re confirmed. Opponents say the group resorted to bringing in outside consultants and paying people to sign the petition.
Magazines that carry more than 15 bullets were outlawed by the state in a law that took effect Monday, but the magazines at Saturday’s gun show were sold just before the deadline and are therefore still legal.
“I too have a dream!” Loesch continued. “I dream that one day our lawmakers will leave us alone! Let us do what we want! Stay out of my gun case! Stay out of my bank account! Stay out of my bedroom! Stay out of my church! Stay out of my business! I’ll carry what I want to carry!”
Video of her speech was not published by Loesch’s website, which instead featured footage of her helicopter landing. In additional footage provided to Raw Story by a source with Progress Colorado who asked to remain anonymous, Loesch announced that the proceeds from the event were going to a group called “Free Colorado,” which hopes to recall Sen. Morse. The organization’s website claims it is a “nonprofit” group registered in Colorado, but “Free …read more
