Colorado recalls gun pacifists
The people of Colorado have affirmed the right to bear arms guaranteed by the Second Amendment by getting rid of two legislative ring leaders who advocated gun control.
Former State Sen. President John Morse and former State Sen. Angela Giron – both Democrats – were recalled by voters on Sept. 10.
Colorado passed sweeping gun restriction laws that were favorable to the President Obama and his relentless quest to restrict gun ownership in America.
Mayors Against Illegal Guns, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group, is a well funded organization that pushed for the highly unpopular gun restrictions in Colorado.
On the other side, the National Rifle Association said the Colorado gun laws were far too restrictive and that Democrats had erred in bringing in national gun control advocates in to push the legislation.
Morse and Giron were top advocates and its has cost them their political careers.
The new laws limit gun magazines to 15 rounds and require universal background checks, to be paid for by the gun purchaser, plus other restrictions. The laws passed without a single Republican vote and took effect July 1.
A lot of Colorado citizens say the laws are unconstitutional and they simply won’t obey them.
The removal of Morse and Giron gives the Democrats a razor-thin one-seat majority in the Colorado Senate. Opponents of their bills are launching an initiative petition to gain repeal of those onerous gun laws put on the ballot in 2014.
The right to self-defense, the right for a militia and the right to bear arms is as old as America itself. Thank goodness the voters of Colorado are willing to undo a mistake enacted by overzealous liberals.
