SHOT ACROSS THE BOW: Second Amendment Wins: CO Senate Majority Leader RECALLED *UPDATED
Gateway Pundit ^ | September 10, 2013 | Dana Loesch

Posted on 09/10/2013 8:59:53 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Colorado Democrat Senate Majority Leader John Morse concedes.

Colorado Democrats need a new senate leader. History was made tonight in Colorado as Democrat Senate Majority Leader John Morse was recalled for abridging Coloradans’s Second Amendment civil liberties. The tally is currently 52%-48%. According to Kelly Maher of Revealing Politics, Morse supporters need to “beat us two to one in remaining ballots.” Impossible.

It’s the first wave of legislative battles planned by citizens angry at state lawmakers who denied them a vote on their Second Amendment rights. As it stands now State Senator Angela Giron is narrowly ahead of her recall.

Morse conceded around 11:30 eastern time.

I’ve said this repeatedly: Colorado is ground zero for our gun rights. It is the litmus test for the country.

“Here’s the bottom line,” said Kurt Bardella, president and CEO of Endeavor Strategic Communications, which is consulting with the groups seeking to oust Morse and Giron. “What happens in one week will have significant implications for the overall debate on gun-control. … Lawmakers at every level of government see Colorado as a bellwether as to whether they can risk pursuing a more aggressive gun-control agenda.”

Maybe Morse can get a job with Michael Bloomberg’s anti-gun group. Colorado seems to be shifting from blue to purple.

Will develop with Giron results.

*UPDATE 1: Giron’s lead has flipped to a trail. 57%-43%

Just goes to prove what some motivated folks can accomplish.

Kind of like the 2,000,000 on their way to DC right now. Be great if that could be done with regards to all the scandals. Be interesting to see what Congress would do if they saw that many wanting answers on F&F, Benghazi, etc etc etc.

YEAH BABY!!!!

To All Colorado Gunnies and Patriots: GOOD ON YA!!!! You just fired the 2013 Equivalent of “The Shot Heard Round The World” and FIRED two Dem asswipes!!!

It appears to be a brand new day for 2nd Amendment folks everywhere... we just won huge.

Giron is falling further behind. Now nearly 19%. Giron has to close a 5000 vote gap with only about 15000 votes yet to count.

It’s a great night in Colorado. And it gets even better if what I just read is true:

This will flop the balance in the Colorado Senate to Republican by one seat, which means R’s will control all the committees.

Heh. Due to recalls. Nice work, grassroots!

More like 19.7% with 62% of the vote counted. And she’s not conceding yet. There’s still hope, ya know!

Giron appears to be trailing BIG with half the vote counted. If it holds that’s shocking, her district is the more democrat of the 2.

Morse’s seat was GOP-leaning, he should have never been elected in the first place.

Hell, I’m from Pennsylvania and I’m positively jubilant about it...

We have rabid anti-gun assholes in our state legislature too... But we outnumber them pretty heavily.

Still... It sends a loud and message..

You mess with one of us, you’ll deal with ALL of us.

Damn, it’s a good day!

As for you Texans - hell, you guys are pretty close to perfect already, as states go!!! If I wasn’t here and happy, I’d move THERE and be happy as well!!!

HOORAY !!!!!

Time for Colorado voters to turn the tables on Nanny Bloomberg.

Send a contingent to New York to get voters behind a push to recall a few senators and repeal the state’s oppressive gun control laws.

Morse’s district is more Dem than other sections of Colorado Springs - artsy fartsy Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City plus the boom boom neighborhood near Fountain and Academy in particular.

Thanks, but we do have our warts. There's far too many libs here for any right thinking Texan's taste. They'd better hope like hell that we don't secede. They'll all be running for the border.

As of the latest, Morse (CO Springs region) was recalled, latest vote count has him losing by 343 votes.

Giron, in the Pueblo area, is behind by 4700 or so votes.
