Photo: User tags Denver Post Facebook gun-bill pic "Retarded A$$hole" and "Dumb C*unt"
Here's proof about how nasty the debate over gun-control legislation has gotten. 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.
