A group called “Longmont Leads With Love” has been protesting every Saturday in the same spot since Trump was elected in 2016. This group of mostly baby boomers come together in a small commons area at 6th and Main in Longmont, CO. Their message varies from week to week and person to person, but wanting more gun control is always part of it. These protests are regularly attended by Longmont City Council members and the city of Longmont even passed a bizarre anti-gun resolution last year.
Recently a handful of Longmont residents decided they were tired of these protesters going unchallenged and started a counter-protest group they’ve coined as “Longmont Leads With Logic“. So now, while the so-called “Love” group protests, you will find the “Logic” group on the opposite side of the street with signs, flags, and some even openly carrying firearms.
In an attempt to better understand what the “Love” group wants, people from the other side attempt to have conversations with them. This exchange was caught on video. A woman dressed in a Handmaid’s Tale costume, who was apparently protesting Trump’s boot on her neck, stated that if she had an AK-47, she’d mow down all the counter-protesters across the street. Not very “loving” if you ask us.
