Three Republicans in Colorado’s state legislature, including two who hold leadership positions, mocked the credible allegation of attempted rape against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in a Facebook post, sparking public outrage.
Colorado’s Senate Republicans killed a bill Monday night that would have allowed law enforcement officials to ask the courts for permission to seize guns from people who are deemed to pose a “significant risk” to themselves or others.
UPDATE: Alliance Defending Freedom and Colorado Christian University’s Centennial Institute requested a clarification that CCU was the organizer of the event and that it invited Alliance Defending Freedom. The post has been updated to reflect the Centennial Institute’s role as organizing entity. The source for the original assertion was ADF’s Facebook event page, which says: “Hosted by Jeff Hunt, Centennial Institute, Alliance Defending Freedom,” as well as CCU’s website, “Join Jack Phillips, Colorado Christian University, Alliance Defending Freedom, and faith leaders from around Colorado for a rally.”
