Photo: User tags Denver Post Facebook gun-bill pic "Retarded A$$hole" and "Dumb C*unt"

This morning, the cover photo on the Denver Post's Facebook page was updated to show Governor John Hickenlooper signing gun bills, with Representative Rhonda Fields looking on. A short time later, someone tagged the image as featuring "Retarded Asshole" and "Dumb C*nt" -- the last word being one used frequently in e-mails to Fields by Franklin Sain, a local executive who was arrested on suspicion of harassment. These unwanted additions have now been removed, but the anger (and sometimes ugliness) of Second Amendment boosters over the legislation remains.
