A flyer now circulating for a protest to be held on the steps of the Colorado Capitol this Sunday at high noon:
According to Gun Rights Across America's Facebook page, Sunday's rally is set to be attended by a slew of 2014 Republican political candidates, including Sens. Greg Brophy and Owen Hill, Ken Buck, Tom Tancredo, and many others.
But then the Denver Post's Kurtis Lee took note of a big and kind of obvious problem:

As every Colorado resident not living under a rock knows, the Denver Broncos are in the NFL playoffs, and Sunday at 1PM they'll kick off the AFC championship game at Mile High Stadium against the New England Patriots. Now presumably, of course, this rally was scheduled well in advance of the Broncos making the playoffs–and even if it wasn't, you can't expect these American patriots (note small p) to just stand down while their constitutional rights are being ripped out of their beating chests by godless liberals and paraded before their eyes! With that said, you have to wonder if the organizers of Sunday's rally weren't quietly rooting for the San Diego Chargers last Sunday.
Is it too late to rent a Jumbotron? Otherwise, turnout seems likely to suffer–and not at Mile High.
