It Looks Like At Least One Gun-Grabber Will Go Down In Defeat In Colorado

It Looks Like At Least One Gun-Grabber Will Go Down In Defeat In Colorado

If early voting is any indication, it appears that one of two Colorado state senators who supported gun control earlier this year will be out of a job.

This, of course, is excellent news for all who support the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution.

In case you’re not familiar with the back story, here’s a quick recap. Earlier this year, to capitalize on the hysteria of the shootings in Newtown, Connecticut, Colorado Democrats decided to push through some extraordinarily unpopular gun control legislation in their state. After much controversy, the legislation eventually passed and was signed into law.

The gun control law contained the usual, ineffective provisions. It limited the size of ammunition magazines and required universal registration background checks. The fact that neither of those provisions would have prevented the shootings at Newtown was irrelevant to the statists who don’t like it when their constituents have certain freedoms.

Two of the state senators who voted for that gun control legislation became the targets (no pun intended there, haters) of an NRA-backed recall election. Those two senators are Angela Giron and John Morse. John Morse is the “white whale” out of those two because he is also the President of the state senate.

The good news for freedom-lovers is this: although Republicans comprise only 26% of Morse’s district, early voting indicates a 41% Republican turnout. We think that Republicans are serious about tossing this guy out on his rear. The NRA might get its white whale after all.

Unfortunately, things are not looking quite as good in Giron’s district for people who support constitutional freedoms. We wouldn’t feel comfortable predicting that one in favor of the NRA.

Still, the loss of just one of these recall elections will give legislators at the state level pause before they mess around with our Second Amendment rights again. We think that is a positive development.
