Colorado lawmakers didn’t listen to ColoradansÂ when they passed the recent and ridiculous gun control law, but I think they are paying attention now. Recall petition drives are underway for four pro-gun control Democrats in the Colorado legislature. First up is Sen. John Morse.
Petition signatures filed with the Colorado Secretary of Stateâ€™s office are more than sufficient to recall state senator John Morse (D). The recall is the first recall of a Colorado legislator in the stateâ€™s history.
The Recall Morse committee filed over 16,000 signatures, more than double the required number.
In his position as the senate president this past session, Morse coordinated the passage of anti-Second Amendment bills over massive citizen opposition.
The recall is not official until the Secretary of Stateâ€™s office certifies that there are at least 7,178 valid signatures, or 25 percent of the number of ballots cast in the election that Morse won in 2010. Organizers of the recall effort are confident that they have more than enough signatures to withstand scrutiny.
