Gun Fetishists Really, Really Don’t Like Scott Brown
Just a couple of days after Republican ex-senator Scott Brown loaded up the carpetbag and announced a move to New Hampshire, presumably to run again in a GOP-friendlier state, he was greeted by a cadre of Second Amendment worshipers equipped with their beloved weapons who are none too happy with his presence in the
Gun Nut Nutmeg State:
If Scott Brown decides to run for the U.S. Senate from New Hampshire, he’ll have to get past the National Rifle Association before he can challenge Democratic incumbent Senator Jeanne Shaheen next November.
At least 200 gun rights activists, some with semi-automatic rifles slung over their shoulders, last night stood in the snow in near-freezing temperatures wearing bright orange hunting clothes to protest as Brown headlined a Republican party fundraiser in Nashua, New Hampshire.
“Down with Brown. Down with Brown. Down with Brown,” they chanted, at times so loudly their words echoed across the street.
Brown has drawn the ire of the NRA and other gun owner advocates because of his vote for a state-level assault weapons ban in Massachusetts, where he previously served in the legislature, and remarks he made days after the December 2012 massacre of 20 children and six teachers at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
