Recalled Colorado Sen. Angela Giron: We can beat the gun lobby we already have
The Washington Post ^ | September 20, 2013 | Angela Giron

Posted on 09/22/2013 1:26:25 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

President Obama has now addressed the seventh mass shooting of his presidency, and we certainly heard the weariness in his voice Monday as spoke about the massacre at the Washington Navy Yard: “It’s a shooting that targeted our military and civilian personnel. These are men and women who were going to work, doing their job, protecting all of us. They’re patriots, and they know the dangers of serving abroad, but today they faced the unimaginable violence that they wouldn’t have expected here at home.”

As a state legislator now branded by the word “recalled,” I can identify with that weariness. Gun legislation has stalled in Congress because lawmakers fear the fate I suffered — being targeted, voted out or recalled by extremist political activists because of views on firearms safety that dare challenge the gun lobby. The recall fight that my colleague, Colorado Senate President John Morse, and I lost demonstrated that no matter the cost of our political positions, common-sense gun-safety legislation is achievable. Colorado’s newest gun-safety laws have been in effect for months, and the recalls have no bearing on them. The legislation we helped pass proves that the gun lobby can be beaten.

Sen. Morse and I started the 2013 legislative session amid a constituent outcry to curb gun violence in our communities. The movie theater shooting in Aurora last summer and the Newtown massacre in Connecticut had brought guns to the forefront of our agenda. We passed laws that extended our state’s background-check system to include private sales, to keep guns out of the hands of criminals; limited ammunition magazines to 15 rounds; and made sure that domestic abusers aren’t allowed to buy or keep guns.

Each of these laws is already making Colorado safer....

Detonate the legislative bomb, and expect your 72 virgins when you return to the private sector.

That's a whole lot of "extremist political activists." One might almost say there's enough to be a majority...

The thing we must all keep in mind is that she (they)
don’t consider the opposition to be citizens who’s
wishes they have to respect and they disrespect us
at every opportunity.

I’m glad she/they were thrown out and had I been in
their state I would have voted to do so.

The legislation we helped pass proves that the gun lobby can be beaten.

Firearms should be used responsibly, on that I would never disagree. However, Miss, for you to come out and say things like that aggressively AFTER you've been recalled means the scripture is true about the tongue being untamed.

Your REAL intent is to disarm the public and make them subject to despotism. Your very words indicate that MY statement is true. You would deny that premise and the scripture is again true that men (and women, in your case) tend to lie a lot.

Also, someone else said, "You can fool some of the people some of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all of the people all of the time." Time's up. We're not being fooled anymore. I would decree that your name should never again be used publicly. As such, you will be quickly forgotten.

She planned it this way so she would have more time to travel the country spreading the word about Bitter Clinger.

And Obama planned on Putin pushing Assad to give up his WMD’s by getting Lurch to plant te idea in Putin’s head.

Preach it to President Obama, Angela baby. Make it the centerpiece of every speech of his until the 2014 elections.

Push it hard.

May the termites eating away at the Constitution break their jaws on the steel of the second amendment.

Dear Democratic Failed Tw(i)t,

What you can only see as “the gun lobby”, are the very folks that voted you out of office!

THEY are the people, who, look upon their own self-preservation, as a self-responsioble act, in actually standing and facing the threat, and NOT acting like spineless cowards, hiding behind their bed, waiting for a federalized, militarized police force, that the Supreme Court has ruled, has no business affording the American citizen, safety and protection!

The People of Colorado have told you, loud and clear, WE DON’T NEED YOU!

Wait... Isn’t that the same thing he said after the Ft Hood massacre?

Only until the next election. There are a lot of people who were not happy with the underhanded way they did things.

I still haven't decided if I'm going to run for state rep (against Dave Young). Energy and immigration seem to be the big issues here, but my primary platform would be repeal of those stupid unenforceable gun laws.

It was just a week or so ago that she said that she was recalled by racists. Fact is, she was just recalled by her former constituents that had had enough of her. G'bye Angela, your fifteen minutes are over. Now shut up and go away.

Okay...So when there is a Democrat in the White House, we seem to have a distinct increase in the number of mass shootings.

I propose, to keep America safe, we don't let Democrats in the White House.

Problem solved.

(And how has making a maniac reload more often made Colorado safer?)

Hey! SHE uses that d-uh-whatever word. :)

I’m sure there are those that would think of that rhyming word for a football ‘retreat and kick’.

I try to be nice.
