Pamela Powers Hannley, a progressive voice for Arizona
Phoenix videographer Dennis Gilman uploaded this video of a recent gun nut rally on the grounds of the Arizona State Capitol– obviously friendly territory for gun nuts.
The video left me nearly speechless. The wacky speakers. The defense of slavery as a benevolent institution. (Huh?) The threats against Democrats (who are “all on food stamps”), Latinos, and anyone who wants to take their guns away (including law enforcement officers). The intense fire power on display. (Were those guns loaded?!) The strong support for Sheriff Joe. The long list of elected politicians in attendance– including Attorney General Tom Horne and State Superintendent of Schools John Huppenthal. Check it out.
