Thursday, March 16, 2000 -- RMGO will be sponsoring another large rally on Friday, March 31st in Longmont at the Raintree Plaza Hotel when Gov. Bill "Gun Control" Owens will be the speaker at the Boulder County GOP's Lincoln Day Dinner.
The rally will begin at 5:30 pm just outside the Raintree, and, again, posterboard will be provided. Bring friends, family members, or even students who want to get involved in defending their rights.
The Raintree Plaza Hotel is located on the South side of the Twin Peaks mall, just off the Boulder-Longmont Diagonal, at 1900 Ken Pratt Blvd. There is plenty of parking available, as the Hotel is literally located in the Mall's parking lot.

Call Heritage Foundation... tell them Bill Owens is a traitor!
Wednesday, January 26, 2000 -- The Heritage Foundation, a Washington D.C. based think tank that claims to be active on conservative ideals, is hosting Colorado Governor Bill Owens for a discussion on "A year after Columbine: How do we heal a wounded culture?"
The announcement makes Gov. Owens look like a friend of liberty -- the liberty bell is the foundations' logo -- by saying that after Columbine "...liberals screamed for stricter gun control and more metal detectors. Others, like Governor Bill Owens, looked deeper and saw the breakdown of the American family that started in the '60's as the more probable cause."
Either the Heritage Foundation -- often called the "Heretic Foundation" -- is ignorant, or this is a bold-faced lie. As you all know, Gov. Bill "Gun Control" Owens has joined forces with the radical anti-gun crowd to offer a package of gun controls in the wake of Columbine. He's even vowed to support ballot initiatives offered by left-wing organizations dedicated to the confiscation of all firearms.
Owens' strategy is obvious, but his comments to the Denver Post are even more clear: "What are they going to do, vote Democrat?" Owens clearly takes the gun vote for granted, which has led many pro-gun leaders to call him "One Term Owens."
What you can do: Call the Heritage Foundation today at 1-800-544-4843 (then press 1 to skip the menus and ask to be transferred to events) or 202-546-4400, and tell them to cancel this event with Governor Gun Control. Let them know that Gov. Owens is NOT a friend of liberty, and has teamed up with the anti-gun groups in Colorado to pass restrictions on our freedoms.
Let’s tell Governor Owens ENOUGH!
Tuesday, Feb. 16, 2000 - Though Gov. Owens claimed to be a strong supporter of our gun rights, he is now our biggest foe in the battle against gun control.
Rocky Mountain Gun Owners and the citizens that brought you the protest at the Governor’s Mansion invite you to join us again as we do our part to turn the tide against Gun Control, and the politicians that support it.
Join us in Northeast Colorado, where Gov. Bill “Gun Control” Owens is the speaker at a Republican party fundraiser. This is a great opportunity for gun rights activists to tell the Republican Party that Gov. Owens has betrayed our trust and his oath of office.
This protest will be conducted in the same manner as the Mansion Maul: we will exercise our 1st Amendment right to free speech by protesting the Governor’s flip-flop on the gun issue. Posterboard and pens will be provided: just bring a friend.Who: You and dozens (maybe hundreds) other gun rights activists
What: Protest Governor Owens at a GOP Fundraiser
When: Monday, Feb. 21st at 6 pm
Where: Fort Morgan Quality Inn Hotel (I-76 and exit 75)
