The decline and fall of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners’ Dudley Brown
In the seminal History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon detailed the cruelty and persecution Nero enacted upon his people. As an anachronistic legend recounted, the emperor fiddled while Rome burned down around him.
For the past quarter century, Dudley Brown took similar pleasure in the destruction he wrought over the Colorado Republican Party.
The longtime executive director for the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, Brown stepped down after suffering a string of humiliating losses in courts and ballot boxes. After more than 20 years terrorizing Republican candidates and turning Colorado from red to blue, Brown’s departure will come as welcome news to conservatives across the state.
