Arizona Gun Nuts Rally at State Capitol in New Dennis Gilman Video


Gilman chats up the gun nuts, take one...

Phoenix videographer Dennis Gilman covered the gun nut rally at the Arizona State Capitol this past Saturday, and caught some interesting footage of the local pro-2nd Amendment crowd, which seems mainly to have consisted of angry white dudes who're afraid that the scary black man (i.e., President Obama) is coming to take away their playthings.

"Firearms is just what they want to start with," explains one grizzled speaker, who looks like he's been spending most of his spare time prospectin' for the Lost Dutchman Mine. "If they get that, they'll go further and further, till you have no hands and feet, because those are the first weapons used by any human to protect themselves."

That's right. Obama wants to cut off your hands and feet. Wow, reckon he's any kin to Idi Amin?

Another fella tells Gilman that Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, would have been pro-AR-15. His explanation veers off course, however, and he starts talking about how, "We have these weapons to prevent tie-ranny in our government."

Obviously, this so-called "tie-ranny" is actually the unprecedented national proliferation of neckties and the abolition of all open-collared shirts, which Obama, being the Kenyan socialist that he is, advocates for all Americans, in defiance of the U.S. Constitution.

A good old fashioned ass kicking is a good reminder of how precious our constitutional rights are. Especially to someone who has chronic diarrhea of the mouth. 1st Amendment keeps this from happening. So Mr. Lemon, before you start disrespecting Americans and their Constitution... remember..your day to day health relies heavily upon it!

And what is your beef with the State of Virgina Mr. Lemons ? Sic Semper Tyrranis is the Virginia State Motto, a little knowledge is dangerous and that is what happens when one does not research

Mr. Lemons seems to want to paint all members of The SCV as racists and bigots,I don't think the 1st Amendment will protect you in these outright attacks on a persons integrity. You will always be a 3rd Class reporter for a give away rag that depends on illegal's and their supporters to keet it in circulation. Making accusations against me personally which you have done by saying I am racist will certainly make one consider a lwasuit . You covet ans coddle illegals in our country and insult American Citizens who's ancestors have been in this country longer than your's most likely

Get on your knees and blindly accept the dictates of your Master, Prole. Unlike the cruel, racist Bush, who required that you stand, the Marxist Messiah, all praises be his name, Most Wise and Most Merciful, demands only that you kneel.

Whatever happened to US Attorney for AZ John Leonardo's letter to the editor? You know, the one where he explained that universal backround checks would include universal gun registration? I haven't seen that published anywhere but here?

I don't think I have seen so many racist, ignorant, under-empowered, sexist, hate filled, bigoted, small minded and under educated references in one published column in my entire life.

Actually, the First weapon" anybody should use is the one between their ears. Of course, that leaves the people at the rally un-armed.

Google "Mexican self defense patrols". That's what the 2nd Amendment intended as a militia. If they could own assault rifles, they could the horrendous abuse of the drug cartels.

If mental evaluations become required to own a gun, of it just a high school diploma is required, I understand why this gaggle of goofballs were crapping themselves on Saturday.

Cheap entertainment, and perhaps more meaningful, a delightful expose` of those who lack the ability to think for themselves.

Gina, if you opened the link, or saw the video, you'd clearly see why it was used, as a few participants had leather vests with them emblazoned on the back.

umm, many at the rally that are pro-gun have the confederate flag on their clothing. So yeah, it has something to do with it. Sometimes it helps to actually click and read before commenting on a post.

And the Confederate flag has what to do with this? More misleading sensationalism over journalism.

jimnbubba. As far as know the only ILLEGALS on this AMERICAN CONTINENT are the ones  whose ancestors came from somewhere else than the AMERICAN CONTINENT, uninvited, ILLEGALY, invading it, and then claiming  beign here legally through I don't know which means. Therefore, someone on that position can not say: "OUR COUNTRY OR BEIGN AMERICAN CITIZEN who's ancestors have been in this country longer than your's most likely".

The only LEGALS are the NATIVE AMERICANS-which BTW, now reside in "Reservations"- who have been here before any INVADER sat foot on this AMERICAN CONTINENT and if You know what AMERICAN CONTINENT means, you know that that  includes:MEXICANS, CENTRAL AMERICANS AND SOUTH AMERICANS; I'm sorry to burst Your balloon.

BTW, I hope You are not considering a lawsuit against me as well.

@IdontRecall That argument is about worn out as "It's Bush's Fault" , it's a argument used by someone who can't justify illegals being here , the people who came here when it was no country built it, if not for them the Natives would'nt have Chevy pick up's and Coor's beer. And young man South America is a different continent

@dennis20 @JoeArpaioFan No answer Dennis? Come on, you're better than that. You're good. Your voice is important. But you're wrong about guns.

@dennis20 @JoeArpaioFan In your video, you ask, "When do you determine that it's time to take up arms against the United States government?" How about June 21, 1964 Neshoba County, Mississippi? Except that the transgressors were the county Sheriff and the local police department who murdered James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner. The Federal government from the PRESIDENT down engaged in a massive effort to solve the murders. The little justice that came was a result of that effort. That sort of crime doesn't happen now, right? I'll bet Marty Atencio's family has a different opinion. Where is the Federal government in his case? Oh yeah, bringing Ben Arredondo to heel.

@WhoKnows @jonnyquest Did you read about the Mexican self defense patrols? Do so, then tell me they don't have the right to defend themselves.

Sorry but this thing called reality in 2013 vs. this childish fantasy about taking up arms against the government wont end well and it wont be a bunch of military dead when it does.

 Let me add that if you feel like the way to go is to take up arms against corupt law enforcement (solo or with your pals) you can expect a short life so don't be saving too much money for retirement.  

It's 2013, this is the USA.  It's reality regardless of how you or I feel about it.  You wont beat this government or the law enforcement it supports with AR 15's or even AK 47's. Not even if we throw in a few helecopters and some rocket luanchers just to make it seem fair. You will still be as dead as Bin Laden and remembered as a terrorisst and/or mentally ill gun nuts.  

I'd rethink the armed revolution against the US government if I were you.

@WhoKnows @jonnyquest "Play soldiers"? You are morally bankrupt.

@WhoKnows @jonnyquest Really? Now you sound like Russell Pearce. The Mexican self defense patrols are citizens of Mexico, residents of small towns in Mexico that are tired of the depredations of the drug cartels. These people have armed themselves with the few tired guns the Mexican government allows them to own. They aren't trying to put the cartels out of business. They just don't want the killing of innocents that happens everyday. And you would disarm them? Mexicans are like people everywhere. They want to make a living, raise their families, and enjoy the fruits of their labor. They are not less moral. They ARE disarmed by corrupt government officials.
