Colorado Voters Move to Recall Four Anti Gun Lawmakers After Gun Legislation
The Colorado Democratic controlled state legislature last month passed a series of restrictive gun control laws in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook and Aurora. These included a ban on magazines that can hold or be modified to hold more than 15 rounds.
However, Groups in Colorado are not allowing anti gun politicians to enjoy their victory on gun control, however and are organizing a recall of state Rep. Mike McLachlan and state Sens. Angela Giron, Evie Hudak and John Morse.
According to Fox News,
The petition drives are being organized by the organizations Pueblo Freedom and Rights Group. They will need signatures from 25 percent of the vote in each lawmaker’s district to trigger a special election.
The signature deadline is May 21. Colorado’s Secretary of State office confirmed with FoxNew.com that it has approved the forms for the petition drives.
Hudak may have a particularly tough time due to other comments she made regarding rape.
Also according to Fox News,
Hudak angered gun-rights advocates and others, beyond her support for tighter firearms control, because of a comment to a rape victim testifying against a bill that would have banned concealed weapons on college campuses.
She suggested the attacker might have used the gun on the woman had she been carrying a concealed weapon, saying “statistics are not on your side even if you had a gun.”
