Default Gun Control in the Coloradan Mind

Two Colorado lawmakers who backed strict gun control laws ousted in recall
Two Colorado legislators who supported stricter gun control laws lost their jobs on Tuesday in an unprecedented recall election that became the center of the national debate over regulating firearms...

Contributions to Morse and Giron totaled roughly $3 million, eclipsing the sum raised by gun-rights activists who loudly lobbied for the senators’ ouster, though some independent groups weren’t required to report spending, according to the Associated Press.
The NRA, for its part, contributed roughly $500,000 for "independent expenditures" related to recall efforts, spokesman Andrew Arulanandam told NBC News.
Bloomberg, meanwhile, offered up more than $300,000 to the anti-recall campaign, according to the AP. A spokesperson for Bloomberg's office was not immediately available Tuesday to confirm that figure to NBC News.

The two state senators should be pistol whipped in public view on the steps of the state capitol.

Weren't you guys the ones saying the Scott Walker recall was BS and people should use the electoral process instead of having a recall election every time they don't get their way?

The mental gymnastics needed to pull that one off would earn you a gold medal.

It was a waste of county money in the sense that the election cycle is coming up soon, however the people in these counties felt so strongly about this and they exercised their rights to recall.
