Former George W. Bush FEMA chief Michael Brown is calling for a massive demonstration in and around the Colorado state capitol building Monday to protest the gun control legislation making its way through the Democratic-controlled legislature.
Now an afternoon drive-time radio talk-show host in Denver, Brown took to the airwaves on Thursday and rallied his listeners to gridlock the streets around the capitol and blare their horns when the Senate considers seven different gun-control bills Monday morning.
He also wants Second Amendment supporters to “fill the building” in protest.
“Fill more than the hearing room, fill the entire building, floor by floor, so that the rotunda reverberates with the din of ordinary citizens showing their objection to the Colorado Democrats’ attack on the Constitution,” he wrote in a blog post Thursday.
“Second, everyone, throughout the day, should take time to slowly, maybe up to five miles per hour, drive around the capitol building with their car horns blaring. And blaring. And blaring.”
Brown has been vocal in his opposition to a slate of Democratic-sponsored bills that gun-rights advocates say strip them of their Second Amendment rights. Among them are measures that would ban high-capacity magazines, ban concealed weapons on campus, require universal background checks on all gun purchases, and hold owners, makers and sellers of assault weapons liable for any damage they may cause.
