Skip to comments.Colo. senator who pushed for gun control may lose job
Posted on 06/18/2013 5:02:54 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
After the massacre last summer in a Colorado movie theater, the leader of the state Senate pushed through a gun-control bill. Among other things, it outlawed the 100-round ammunition magazines used in the murder of 12 people and the wounding of 58.
But Senate President John Morse has been in the sights of gun rights advocates. On Tuesday, Colorado certified there are enough signatures on a petition to force a recall election.
The gun control laws passed in March limited magazines to 15 rounds and mandated background checks, even for private and online gun sales.
"I've watched people die, and I've helped people not die," Morse says of gun violence he's witnessed.
A gun owner himself, he is now the target of a recall, despite seven years as a popular legislative leader.
Moments after the recall petitions were validated, Morse supporters filed challenges, meaning all of this could end up in the courts, and the actual recall election could be months away.

That is the litigious swamp in which we live...our enemies are right at home in the swamp.
Your job is to represent your constituents, not yourself! When you fail to the job you were elected to there should be ramifications.
Prison terms should be the order of the for any elected official who votes against the constitution.
Moore and every other need to stew in prison for no less than five long years. Maybe these evil bass turds will think twice about going against our founders intent.
It may have outlawed the manufacture of 100 round drums, but I highly doubt that it outlawed the drums themselves.
Since we know interstate and intrastate are the same thing, isn’t it a reach for states to be able to outlaw anything these days?
I'm inclined to agree. Every one of them took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution. Some of them are doing their very best to subvert it.
No you haven't, you azz. All you have done is disempower the law abiding thereby empowering the criminals. My proof? Chicago. GFY Morse.
One down, three to go. We have GOT to send a message, people. The Second Amendment and the American people behind it are stronger than their money and power. Molon Labe!
In the end it's the Voters who allow this subversion, DemocRATs mainly.
If the Constitution wins the day and we have Conservative peace for a decade
you can be sure that the complacency of voters will allow history to repeat itself.
Colorado local news sites are not covering this story that much.
All of us Coloradans should post this story on their news site message boards.
They’ll try to bury this news hard.
Don’t let them.
Interesting... All the libtard sites ran story after story that the legislators who didn’t vote for these gun laws in Colorado were going to get recalled...
Of course none got the required signatures to move ahead...
When will the gun grabbers grow a brain.....?
People in CO made their peace with the leviathan state years ago; now they will reap the whirlwind.
I sent an email to the CBS. Troll reporter .
Told him to ask Mr Gun Owner Morse to show him his gun ..
I bet this so called gun owner is a fraud and never used a cap gun .
He was the Police chief in the city (town) of Fountain so this might not be the best question. Instead, ask him about the “popular legislative leader” who did not even win a majority in 2010. And yes, the Libertarian cost this one.
Colorado State Senate, District 11 General election (2010)
John Morse (D) 13,866
Owen Hill (R) 13,526
Douglas W. Randall (L) 1,320
He won’t survive recall with that close of an election .
I call his story BS because the level of crime in Fountain, Colorado does not support his contention of seeing people die and trying to save people dying from violence. Did he cop any where else?
Someone who vets it. Prison is indeed called for when elected officials trample on our rights.

It is the tyranny of the law. There in effect is no law other than that of what a marxist judge rules.
Our nation is under the rule of treacherous tyrants....... lawyers all.
