One of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s top gun-control lobbyists in Colorado appears to enjoy firing the very guns he is working to restrict.

Denver-based Headwaters Strategies lobbyist Adam Eichberg participated at a “watermelon shoot” in September 2012 at the farm of Colorado state Sen. Greg Brophy (R.) where he fired a semi-automatic rifle with a high-capacity magazine.

A picture obtained by the Washington Free Beacon shows Eichberg smiling broadly as he shoulders a DPMS .308 rifle with a 20-round magazine.

“I really hate watermelons,” Eichberg said via email when asked for comment.

Laws are for the law-abiding. You don’t really think criminals and politicians will comply with new gun laws, do you?

I’d really like to see some citizens’ arrests for violating the Constitution.

Look at the hands holding that weapon. Bet they haven’t ever seen a days work. Bet a handshake would be moist and squishy. Wonder how long it took this fool to learn which way to point it.

I would have been tempted to teach him to hold it in the opposite direction and to use his thumb on the trigger. The little hole in the end is the sight it will open when you press the trigger. You know, like a camera...

If they are going to restrict crazy people from gun ownership, Chuckie’s in trouble.

Yellow hat at right making Adam look good when Adam can't otherwise seem to hit the danged watermellon using his kid-developed, squirt-gun sighting habit.
