On Tuesday, fed up Colorado residents voted to recall both Democratic Senate President John Morse and Atate Senator Angela Giron over a number of gun control laws they helped pushed through the Legislature.
“Actually do have some good news from Colorado. The people have decided they’re not going to take it from their state, and they have just recalled the two leaders of the gun bans in Colorado,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And they’ve done it up against Bloomberg money, all the money that was poured into keeping these guys safe. People are done.”

Angered by new limits on ammunition magazines and expanded background checks, gun-rights activists filed enough voter signatures for the recall elections – the first for state legislators since Colorado adopted the procedure in 1912.
The recalls were seen as the latest chapter in the national debate over gun rights – and, for some, a warning to lawmakers in swing states who might contemplate gun restrictions in the future. But gun rights activists’ efforts to force recall elections for two other Colorado Democrats failed this year.
As TheBlaze previously reported, the recall election was apparently triggered by six “regular guys” who were fed-up with lawmakers ramming gun control laws down the throats of voters and ignoring the Second Amendment. It proves beyond a reasonable doubt that a small group of people, or even just one person, can truly make a difference if they take a stand.
Just one month ago, Giron sounded mighty confident about her job security. With the help of New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s “Mayors Against Illegal Guns,” over $350,000 was spent opposing the recalls.
“For Mayors Against Illegal Guns, if they lose even one of these seats, they might as well fold it up. And they understand that,” then-State Sen. Giron said at the time.
“I’d love to hear their thoughts today,” Pat said. “And see if they understand that.”
Based on Giron’s remarks, it looks like it might be time for Bloomberg and his buddies to call it quits.
“They might as well fold it up,” Stu concluded happily.
