Skip to comments.Gun limits could lead to recalls of [California] legislators
Posted on 10/11/2013 7:48:41 AM PDT by 11th_VA
Gun-rights advocates are ready to launch a recall attempt aimed at some of California's most vulnerable Democratic state lawmakers - and the party's supermajority hold on the Legislature - if Gov. Jerry Brown signs some of the dozen-plus gun-control bills sitting on his desk.
They're emboldened by the successful recalls last month of two Colorado Democratic legislators who supported gun restrictions, including the leader of the state Senate. Voters replaced both with Republicans.
"As soon as the results came in Colorado, our phones started ringing," said Jennifer Kerns, the California political consultant who helped lead the Colorado recalls. "Until then, a lot of people thought California was a lost state (on gun-rights issues). But Colorado showed them it doesn't have to be."
Brown wouldn't be a recall target, organizers said. The costs are too great - perhaps $2 million - to gather enough signatures to put a statewide recall on the ballot.
Instead, gun-rights activists are focused on legislators who voted for the gun bills before Brown, a list that includes nearly every Democrat in Sacramento.
The big advantage: Gathering signatures to recall an Assembly or state Senate member is comparatively cheap.

I am not able to do much "walking" but I can at least donate. I will donate when the recalls start.
It will be VERY interesting to see how this plays out.
California’s demographics have changed SO much in the past few years — too many beholden to the Democratic party. I read yesterday that the under 25 population is now 70% non-White in California.
Keep us posted on thie 11th_VA.
I don’t always have time to read the biased news (not that this would even appear) — but I read FReep a lot — better news here.
All being turned into a 3rd world toilet while productive citizens like my family (who EMPLOY people) are being taxed out of existence.
Photos are of Big Sur.
Nice thoughts, but I think you’re dreaming.

Go git ‘em. We will be happy to sign.
In 1990 I talked a liberal woman into voting for Ralph Nader rather than Algore. I posed as a liberal and fed her a line and she fell for it. She figured it out later and never talked to me again.
I meant to say 2000, not 1990.
Ralph Nader probably would be better than Al Gore. Shudder.
You’re right but I did it to take a vote away from Algore.
We haven’t had a decent president since Ronald Reagan.
I sincerely hope that they do succeed in recalling some of those lunatic California legislators. However, there is a reason that democrats have a super-majority in the legislature there: the voters there elect communist politicians.
Until the voters stop electing communists, California is not going to change.
California is a one-party state like most New England states. Republican or democrat is just a generic label in California and many other states. These politicians exist to get our vote in order to bring home our money to Washington, D.C. for their purposes.
Too much bother. Rope is cheaper and the results are much more permanent.
Plus-a single application is usually all that’s needed...
If they could find ONE very vulnerable Dem and recall that one, the resulting political shockwaves would make Dems much less interested in pushing the gun grabber agenda. That goes for not only the Dems in Kalifornia, but for the rest of the nation as well.
Worth the effort and worth supporting in my opinion.
Only surprise here is tha Calif. hasn’t yet sent their goon squads door to door confiscating ALL guns in the state.
The good news was that we recalled a Governor. The bad news was that we elected Schwarzendoofus.
No kidding he was pulling your chain, I dont know any Kalifornia Repubs that think Obama is doing anything but ruin the country.
