Town divided over July Fourth gun parade

WESTCLIFFE — Residents of the small town of Westcliffe are divided over whether a political group should be allowed to carry unloaded weapons in the town’s Independence Day parade.

The Custer County Chamber of Commerce canceled this year’s mile-long march through town after the Southern Colorado Patriots Club announced it would be carrying guns. The town of Westcliffe saved the holiday, picking up sponsorship of the parade.

According to the Denver Post, the group says it wants to make a statement about constitutional rights to carry firearms.
