    I was reading the classified ads in today's paper, when I came across the following ad:
    The paper is the Colorado Springs Gazette.

    Given the slant of the Gazette, I would imagine that the editors actually found it as amusing as we do.

    Yeah - it cracked me up when I saw it.

    To continue it could have said...

    After being dropped, it was repeatedly stepped on by a running crowd!

    I bet even Rich Tosches (sp?) might have gotten a grin out of that ad! :D

    Darnit, I wish people would get that straight:

    "Only dropped once, never fired in anger."

    Gotta get the whole jibe in there. :D

    Good for them. I'm glad to see that at least one newspaper in this state still believes in freedom of speech.

    I notice that the guy is selling an AR-15.

    Back in the early 1990s, the Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News stopped accepting classified ads for "assault weapons."


    A few years ago, they sort-of-merged in some type of "joint operating agreement."

    Last year, they announced that they will no longer accept classified ads for firearms from private individuals.

    The Colorado State Shooting association has more info at http://www.cssa.org/news.html#NEWSPAPER

    The Colorado Springs Gazette is the coolest newspaper in the country. :D

    Clearly run by libertarians ... for jeebus sake they run Dave Kopel's and Thomas Sowell's columns in the editorial page!! :what:

    The only obnoxious bit of liberalism in the paper is Rich Tosches' column ... and I think they keep him because he makes liberals look stupid (kind of like Allen Combs does on Fox ... ironicaly Rich looks a lot like Allen) :neener:

    Here's their parent company...

    That surely must be the reason, because funny Tosches ain't.

    P.S. The C/S Gazette is also one of the few papers in the country to run Vin Suprynowicz's VERY freedom-loving column.
