Former Chair of Arizona GOP: “take guns away from blacks”

Welp, this one should go over well.  During the Democratic Presidential debate, Randy Pullen, the former Chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, tweeted the following:

And how do you think Twitter reacted to this charming display of racial tolerance?

Pullen’s idiot tweet is making news in Arizona and almost certainly embarrassing to the GOP for many reasons…not the least of which being that he’s advocating taking away guns in a party that almost certainly doesn’t want to do just that.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear more about this story, including an apology, in the future days.  Of course, since Pullen is the former chair, this may be the end of the story.  Either way…wow.  Dumb tweet.
