Total Recall: Colorado Lawmakers Ousted in Historic Vote

Friday, September 13, 2013

When legislators disregard the voice and will of the people who vote them into office, the people should rightly vote those legislators out of office.  On Tuesday, a historic grassroots effort by voters in Colorado resulted in just that--the recall of Colorado Senate President John Morse (D) and Senator Angela Giron (D).  This week's action represents the first recall of legislators in Colorado history.  Tuesday's vote sent a clear and unmistakable message to elected officials that their primary job is to listen to the people and defend their rights and freedoms, and that they are accountable to their constituents--not the dollars or social engineering agendas of out-of-state anti-gun billionaires.  Simply put, legislators work for the voters, not the other way around!

Recall proceedings began earlier this year, after Sens. Morse and Giron voted for anti-gun legislation that restricted the ability of law-abiding residents to exercise their Second Amendment rights, including their inherent right to self-defense. This effort was driven by concerned Coloradoans, who collected petition signatures, made phone calls, knocked on doors, and worked diligently to turn voters out in this historic effort.

And despite massive spending by Michael Bloomberg and the anti-gun elitists, Sens. Morse and Giron are now looking for work.

Voters in Colorado insisted that their voices be heard--and they were.  They stood up for their Second Amendment rights, against formidable anti-gun adversaries, and were victorious.  The National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) is proud to have stood with them and applauds them for sending a clear message that their Second Amendment rights are not for sale. We were pleased that our on-the-ground grassroots efforts were able to supplement those of Colorado citizen activists and send a shot across the bow of the nation's anti-gun elites.

We look forward to working with NRA-PVF "A" rated and endorsed Bernie Herpin (R) from Colorado Springs and NRA-PVF "AQ" rated and endorsed George Rivera (R) from Pueblo in the Colorado State Senate.
