Last week we reported on the grass roots recall petition to oust Senate President John Morse after he and other anti-gun lawmakers voted for the unconstitutional gun control bills in Colorado.
The effort was spearheaded by the Basic Freedom Defense Fund and they needed to get 7,178 in order to force a recall election. Despite the efforts of NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg to stop the petition and the consequences of a recall election over a lawmaker voting for restrictive gun control measures, the group has done the unthinkable (at least to any gun control fanatic).
The group has garnered over 16,000 signatures, doubling the amount needed to force a recall election. Considering John Morse only received 13,451 votes in the election that gave him his job, this is quite the statement from the gun owners of his district.
Now keep in mind that these signatures will have to be verified and made sure that none of them are duplicated or fabricated. The Secretary of State will have the job of making sure the signatures are legit, but if the number still exceeds the 7,178 magic number then this is a huge victory for gun rights supporters like us.
The Senate President will have 5 days to either resign or decide to take on a recall election. Of course Democrats will fight not only for his seat but also with the results of the petition and try to delay the election as long as possible.
If Morse resigns (which he vowed he would not and stay with it to the bitter end) then Democrats will have the opportunity to appoint someone else in his place.
Either way it looks like Morse will be losing his job because he ignored the voice of gun owners and also the voice of reason and liberty. Don’t just think this recall election will have effects confined to Colorado. There is a reason Bloomberg was (and still is) pouring money into the state to try to stop these recall efforts. He knows that this will ring a chord that will vibrate across the country as even die-hard anti-gun lawmakers will fear losing their jobs over restricting citizen’s constitutional rights.
