Recall petition drives are well under way for four pro-gun control Democrats in the Colorado state legislature. …
… Sen. John Morse is the president of the senate and thus responsible for sheparding the gun bills through. He was famously shown on the Rachel Maddow TV show explaining how he told “his” senators to ignore the objections of their constituents and vote for the rights-restricting legislation.
The rallying slogan for the Morse recall is “Got ReMorse?” with a web page of the same name. The effort is run by a professional project manager and petitions are circulating daily.
Morse has said that he can’t be recalled.
Evie Hudak, the legislator who told rape victim Amanda Collins that even had she been allowed to carry her concealed firearm on the night of her attack, she would statistically have been dead anyway, is also being recalled as is the other senator besides Morse who was elected with a minority of the total vote.
When she went grocery shopping a week ago, Hudak encountered a woman with a big sign saying “Recall Hudak,’ so Hudak approached her.
Apparently Hudak made a big fuss, blowing up about the woman being able to petition outside the store and complaining to management—a store which Hudak referred to as “her store.”
The story did not make the press but Hudak did tell the Denver Post’s Lynn Bartels that she had a brief run in with a petitioner. …
… The third Democrat facing recall, Mike McLachlan, doesn’t think much of the First Amendment either. On his recall website he is quoted as saying:
“…the right of the First Amendment is not absolute. It is like every right in that in the proper circumstances the government may infringe, take away, or completely reduce that right.” …
… Angela Giron, the fourth, is in a similar situation. She is in heavily Democratic Pueblo, but the response to the recall, according to one activist, is amazing. At a rally in a Kmart parking lot Saturday, many people said they did not own guns, but simply wanted to support Second Amendment rights.
People drove by honking and waving. There were very few negative responses.
