Washington, DC --(Ammoland.com)- “We may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks….” ~ President George Washington, October 3, 1789

What a startling upset. The voters of Colorado have done it!

Yesterday, Colorado booted two unprincipled, back-stabbing, arrogant legislators from office.

This was truly a historic effort and the first time in Colorado history that there has ever been a recall election — let alone a successful one.

Democrat Senators John Morse and Angela Giron lost their bid to hold onto their seats in districts that heavily favored Democrats. (In fact, Giron represented a district where only 23 percent of registered voters are Republicans.)

In Morse’s race, 51% of voters pulled the recall lever to eject him from office, while 56% of voters sided against Giron.

The effort to recall Morse and Giron began as a genuine local effort, although the prospects of beating two entrenched Democrats attracted big bucks from out of state.

Anti-gun New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent hundreds of thousands of his own dollars in an attempt to help Morse retain his seat.

But it didn’t work. And now the handwriting is on the wall for other legislators.

Morse especially angered constituents earlier this year when he, as the Senate President, helped slam several unconstitutional gun control bills through the legislature and onto Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper’s desk — legislation such as magazine restrictions, bans on private gun sales (without a background check), etc.

Gun Owners of America stepped into the fray during the spring and summer, and did its part in rallying the troops to get Colorado voters to the polls.

And so, to the voters of Colorado, we at Gun Owners of America want to thank you all for your efforts to send a powerful message to the rest of the state — and the rest of the country.

As stated by the New York Times this morning, the recall has given “moderate lawmakers across the country a warning about the political risks of voting for tougher gun laws.”

Your activism in Colorado has truly been a model for the rest of us to follow!

  1. Words are important, it is not gun control, it “abridging guaranteed rights” by “Anti Constitution” Politicians. Stop using their naming conventions.

  2. Despite the efforts of the Denver Commie Post editorials to discredit the County Sheriff’s for their stance on gun control…along with their efforts to discredit those grass roots supporters of the recall election…The people of Colorado have spoken and have won…The Denver Commie Post now has egg on their face…It didn’t work…The people of Colorado are fed up with the East Coast/West Coast mobacracy that is constantly being forced on this states citizenry…No wonder norther Colorado wants to seceed…If they do…I’m moving out of this rat infested sanctuary city of Denver which has become one of the biggest drug and human trafficking centers in the nation…All enjoyed by the CommieCRats!

  3. Morse and Giron as well as any other gungrabbing liberals need to take warning.If you are elected to public office pay real hard attention to the oath of office. The 2’nd Amendment of the the Constitution is a very critical part of that oath.These morons just jumped on that obama/bloomberg gun grab hysteria train to nowhere.

  4. We need to make it a Felony for an elected official to break their Oath of Office – and if on a Federal level, Treason.

    Actually I believe sending weapons to Syrian rebels, ADMITTED associates of Al Queda (I don’t think anyone would argue they are not our enemy), technically qualifies as treason…

    Treason
    The betrayal of one’s own country by waging war against it or by consciously or purposely acting to aid its enemies.

    The Treason Clause traces its roots back to an English statute enacted during the reign of Edward III (1327–1377). This statute prohibited levying war against the king, adhering to his enemies, or contemplating his death. Although this law defined treason to include disloyal and subversive thoughts, it effectively circumscribed the crime as it existed under the Common Law. During the thirteenth century, the crime of treason encompassed virtually every act contrary to the king’s will and became a political tool of the Crown. Building on the tradition begun by Edward III, the Founding Fathers carefully delineated the crime of treason in Article III of the U.S. Constitution, narrowly defining its elements and setting forth stringent evidentiary requirements.

    Under Article III, Section 3, of the Constitution, any person who levies war against the United States or adheres to its enemies by giving them Aid and Comfort has committed treason within the meaning of the Constitution. The term aid and comfort refers to any act that manifests a betrayal of allegiance to the United States, such as furnishing enemies with arms, troops, transportation, shelter, or classified information. If a subversive act has any tendency to weaken the power of the United States to attack or resist its enemies, aid and comfort has been given.

    That seems pretty clear to me.
