This is what happens in Colorado when you want more people to stay alive instead of getting shot by other people with guns. Via the Denver Post:
DENVER—Gun-rights activists in Colorado turned in petition signatures Monday to set up the first recall in state history of a state lawmaker after he backed some of the strictest gun control measures to become law in the U.S. this year.
There has never been a Colorado state lawmaker who has been recalled, ever, in the history of ever... until now. Until Democratic Senate President John Morse, who backed some gun control measures that managed to pass." So why him? Because all those "right-to-lifers" demand access to more killing machines, regardless of stats that show that common sense gun safety laws work.
Here is what Bill Adaska, a retired engineer from Denver who volunteered to gather recall signatures, had to say:
"This is the race, right here, that's going to show Washington and Chicago that when you come after our guns, we're going to take you out."
Interesting choice of words there, Bill. Are you one of those people who call themselves "pro-life"?
For the (not) last time, nobody is coming after your guns. You can still own guns. Guns will still be owned by you.
The radical changes he's worried about-- and by radical I mean sensible-- call for expanded background checks on private and online gun sales, plus a 15-round limit on gun magazines. Oooo, scary. There goes the Second Amendment, right down the toidy!
Nobody could possibly take out a deer or an unlikely intruder with only 15 rounds. Nobody could possibly find a way to redundantly own more firearms if they have to endure five-minutes of questioning about whether they're unfit to buy their twelfth assault rifle.
So of course, the solution is to remove a Democrat who's for reducing gun violence and saving lives. Silly John Morse, what could he have been thinking?
