Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms party
From Dave Kopel -- Independence Institute is hosting its annual ATF party on June 24, in Bennett, Colorado. Details in extended entry below.
The most politically incorrect event of the year returns:
Golden-based think tank to sponsor fourth “Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms” party
The Independence Institute will be sponsoring its fourth annual Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) Sporting Clay Shoot on Saturday, June 24th at the Kiowa Creek Sporting Club in Bennett, Colo.
Billed by the Golden-based think tank as “the most fun, most politically incorrect event of the year,” the ATF Party will give attendees of all skill levels the opportunity to hone their shooting abilities and celebrate those civil liberties – smoking, shooting and drinking – that most irritate nannyists.
A morning clay pigeon shoot at Kiowa Creek’s shooting stations will be followed by a clubhouse luncheon—featuring cigars and, of course, whiskey.
“The thought of responsible adults enjoying these pastimes just drives the liberal meddlers nuts,” said Institute president Jon Caldara. “I can’t think of a better use of my time or yours for that matter.”
The $150 fee to participate in the ATF event also includes 100 sporting clays, ammunition, lunch, libations, cigars (or smokeless if you prefer) and lunch time entertainment. This year, syndicated columnist Jay Ambrose will eulogize Colorado’s civil liberties. Past lunch speakers include Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform and internationally renowned columnist Christopher Hitchens.
Caldara described the event as “a smashing success and a liberal’s nightmare, and the nightmare grows each year.” T-shirts commemorating this year’s ATF Shoot will be available for $10 and figure to be the most sought after fashion item for the well-dressed, politically-incorrect crowd.
With space limited for attendees, reservations for the June 24th event are filling up fast. The Independence Institute is an equal-opportunity host. “While this is a celebration of individual rights and personal freedoms, we want it clear that uptight nannyists are also welcome,” Caldara said.
