GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- A small group of gun control advocates protested outside Mitt Romney's campaign stop in Golden on Thursday.

About a dozen members of Colorado Ceasefire and Mayors Against Illegal Guns demonstrate outside the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Golden.

Mayors Against Illegal Guns is led by New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and Boston mayor Thomas Menino. The group is pushing for both Romney and President Barack Obama to come up with a plan to address gun violence.

Colorado Ceasefire is led by Tom Mauser, whose son was killed in the 1999 Columbine shootings.

      The prices of guns are up again, supply and demand. Every time Obama opens his mouth it seems the manufacturers can't keep up with the demand.

    A dozen people come out to protest? That shouldn't make a headline or even a news story. The liberal news media is at it again.

    "Plagued by controversy" the new propaganda theme from the Associated Press, and the other Left-wing media machines.. It's a shame that there's no one in the "news" business any more. All we get is punks who want to fabricate propaganda.
