Conservatives protest Giuliani

From the Rocky Mountain News:

Dudley Brown, executive director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, said Giuliani’s stance on guns was out of step with the Republican Party and agreed with fellow protestor Aaron Brown’s assessment that the presidential hopeful had grown too comfortable relying on bodyguards instead of carrying a weapon himself.

"Most people I know can’t afford bodyguards," Brown said. "He seems to have lost sight of that."

Another protestor bellowed out his opposition to Giuliani as a handful of guests arrived about 30 minutes prior to the cancellation of the event. The protestor, carrying large poster size pictures of aborted children, yelled, "God will not be mocked."

Additionally it looks like House Minority Leader Mike May (R-Highlands Ranch) is trying to distance himself from his endorsement of Giuliani.

Colorado House Minority Leader Mike May, who was listed on the host committee, balked at attending because he worried about Amendment 41, an ethics measure passed by Colorado voters last November, and being at an event that charged a fee.

"I don’t want to be in the middle of an Amendment 41 test," May said.

But he also worried about Giuliani’s stances on abortion and guns — liabilities that two protestors handing out leaflets outside the Van De Weghe home said were crippling to the former mayor.
