In the wake of a shooting at a Denver Motorcycle Expo that left one man dead, officials in Denver say they may ban military personnel from joining the Iron Order Motorcycle club, effectively listing the club as an "Outlaw" organization or terrorist group.
Lt. Col. Jason Brown, a spokesman for Fort Carson’s 4th Infantry Division told Military Times “After what happened this weekend, it is definitely under review,"
About half of the Iron Order bikers involved in the brawl were military veterans from the Colorado area, according to a top leader in the club.
The Mongols are among about seven dominant “Outlaw” motorcycle clubs, also known as “1-Percenters” in the biker world and recognizable by the three-piece patches they wear. Self-described as the “baddest 1%er motorcycle club known worldwide” — the Mongols have long had a reputation as one of the most violent gangs in the country and are considered off limits to military personnel by most commands.
