  • Bloomberg Disses Rural Colorado: 'I Don't Think There's Roads' in Colorado Springs or Pueblo

    Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg scoffed at rural Colorado’s reaction to gun control during an interview with Rolling Stone in this month’s magazine, suggesting that only the parts of the country without even the most basic components of civilization would be opposed to more gun control. Bloomberg was asked about the successful recall races of Democratic State Senators in response to the strict gun control legislation passed in the state. “The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don't think there's roads. It's as far rural as you can get,” he said. ......

    Democrats this week unveiled legislation that aims to correct some of the legal conflicts revealed last summer during recall elections of two Senate Democrats that nullified mail balloting and contributed to the Democrats’ loss. During an impromptu media availability hosted by Senate Democrats on Monday, lawmakers proposed a measure that would modify a provision in state statute that allows a person to petition onto a recall election ballot 15 days before the election date. The provision was highlighted during a Denver District Court case this summer challenging the recall elections of then-Senate President John Morse of Colorado Springs and then-Sen....

    A supporter of Colorado State Senator, and gun control champion, Evie Hudak was captured on video threatening to “go home and get a gun and come back and kill” recall activists as they tried to gather signatures for a new recall effort against Ms. Hudak. ... The Recall Hudak Too organizers are hoping to follow up successful recalls of two other anti-gun Colorado State Senators earlier this year. Both State Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron were thrown out of office by voters over their support for controversial gun control measures. Hudak supported the same measures. Ms....

    Six months ago, Bernie Herpin assumed his best political days were behind him. He had lost his reelection bid for Colorado Springs city council and he was approaching his 70th birthday. “I just figured I was done with politics,” said Herpin. It turns out he was wrong. On Thursday, Republicans Herpin and George Rivera were sworn in as the newest members of the Colorado state Senate, replacing the two Democrats ousted in last month’s historic recall elections. ... Pro-Democrat groups outspent the recallers by at least 6 to 1, which resulted in a few tense moments for the GOP campaigns....

    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....

    Two videos are posted at Twitchy and GSL in which Angela Giron continues to reinforce why she was recalled in a recent Colorado effort. In an interview clip below, Giron blames the NRA for the Navy Yard shooting. Giron feels the NRA keeps trying to convince people—out of greed—that “more guns equals safety. And in this case in particular, we can look at, it was a Navy Yard. You couldn’t have any more armed people than in that case right there.” Apparently Giron is unaware that the Navy Yard was a gun-free zone thanks to Bill Clinton. Additionally, GatewayPundit reported...

    Colorado State Senator Angela Giron keeps a straight face as she tells CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin that voter suppression was responsible for her removal and that of fellow, leftist gun grabber John Morse from the Colorado State Senate in successful recall bids. Even at CNN the ancorette was having none of it as she blew off Giron's nonsensical claims. It seems Giron would not allow pro-gun citizens to make their views known as she skipped out of a Town Hall meeting...

    COLORADO SPRINGS -- Quick, call the CDC. We've got a Rocky Mountain outbreak of Acute Sore Loser Fever. After failing to stave off two historic recall bids on Tuesday, two delusional state legislators and their national party bosses just can't help but double-down and trash voters as dumb, sick, criminal and profligate. The ululations of gun-grabbing Democrats here in my adopted home state are reverberating far and wide. Appearing on cable TV Thursday to answer the question "What happened?" Pueblo State Sen. Angela Giron sputtered that she lost her seat due to "voter suppression." Giron whined to CNN anchor Brooke...

    Questions are being raised whether outgoing billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is courting Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe (D) to enact gun control measures in Virginia if he should win the statehouse in November. On Tuesday, voters in Colorado recalled two state senators--Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and Senate President John Morse (D-Colorado Springs)--that supported Colorado Gov. John Hickenloooper's (D) sweeping gun control legislation, which he signed into law in March. As Breitbart News reported, Morse lost his recall election 51 to 49 percent, and Giron lost hers by a "whopping 56 to 44 percent." Bloomberg reportedly called Hickenlooper...

    An armed man is a free man whilst an unarmed man is a serf who is subject to the whims and dictates of the State. That is why progressive liberals fear and despise gun ownership and why they relentlessly pursue to destroy the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. They know that an armed population can resist any final destruction of their God-given liberties. This week saw a mixed bag of news as it pertains to gun rights. However, while there was a setback in Missouri, the overall news is encouraging. On Tuesday, voters in Colorado successfully recalled two anti-liberty...

    Via the Corner. Tuesday night, expecting a close race, I couldn’t believe that she lost by 12 points. Now, after watching her for the first time, I can’t believe she lost by only 12 points. She’s got one argument here — “voter suppression,” ripped straight from the DNC’s talking points memo, which is completely destroyed by her own now-famous admission a few weeks ago that if Bloomberg and his anti-gun group couldn’t buy her a victory in this race, “they might as well fold it up.” They did their best for her; as Erika noted earlier, gun-grabbers outspent gun-rights supporters...

    If you see the Independence Institute's Jon Caldara smiling today, here's one likely reason: He provided the de facto name for the lead segment on Rachel Maddow's MSNBC show last night. Sitting to the side of a continental-U.S. map plastered with the Caldara-uttered phrase "Wave of Fear," Maddow explored the recall election defeats of John Morse and Angela Giron over their support of gun-control legislation. Along the way, she featured a clip of Caldara at the lectern and politically incorrect graphics courtesy of the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners. See it all below. Following an introduction noting that her program is...

    "It's worth saying Colorado has maintained people's right to own a gun --- we've maintained the full respect for the Second Amendment," he insisted during a press conference on Wednesday. Hickenlooper repeatedly cited a poll showing that 80 percent of Colorado voters support universal background checks, calling the law "sound and sensible." He admitted, however, that he was never as "fired up" about limits on ammunition magazines. "That was a tough one," he said.

    Leaders of the campaign to pass a $950 million education tax increase are laying plans for their campaign, but they’re being close-mouthed about what those strategies are. With just 35 days until county clerks can start mailing ballots for the Nov. 5 election, Colorado Commits to Kids has yet to stage any public meetings or air any advertising. On Tuesday, Colorado Commits convened representatives of groups supporting Amendment 66 for a meeting on the Auraria campus. The emailed invitation said, “We plan to update you on our success thus far, and explain our road to success in the coming months.”...

    Rights: Colorado voters on Tuesday ousted two leading supporters of stricter gun control laws, saying "ready, aim, fired" to those who would deny movie patrons and college women the right to armed self-defense. One would think that Colorado, the site of the tragedies at Columbine and the Aurora movie theater, the purple state where President Obama accepted his first nomination amidst faux Greek columns, would be the least receptive of states for the arguments of Second Amendment defenders. Colorado state Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron found out differently on Tuesday as they were ousted by gun rights...

    Mediaite ^ | September 11, 2013 | Noah Rothman
    On Tuesday night, voters in two Colorado districts ousted two prominent state senators due to their support for strict state-level gun control measures. Colorado, which has been trending Democratic over the past four election cycles, has been uniquely resistant to the Republican message. For a moment, that trend in the Centennial State was halted as voters ejected state Sen. Angela Giron and state Senate President John Morse from elected office. Pundits and political scientists often warn observers that special or recall elections are not indicative of any political trend. They are not predictive of the results of a general election...

    Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, a grassroots organization of more than 100,000 members, issued the following statement regarding the recall election results in Colorado: “The gun lobby may have won this local battle, but they will not win the national war. The National Rifle Association purposely called this recall election in Colorado – just a year before the regular election cycle – to ensure voting obstacles and low voter turnout. This reckless desire to remove legislators from office in an off-election year cost Coloradans more than $500,000 – an egregious waste of taxpayer dollars. From the outset,...

    The next time you're wondering if polls are biased, just remember this admission from Public Policy Polling: Reflecting on the Colorado recalls We did a poll last weekend in Colorado Senate District 3 and found that voters intended to recall Angela Giron by a 12 point margin, 54/42. In a district that Barack Obama won by almost 20 points I figured there was no way that could be right and made a rare decision not to release the poll. It turns out we should have had more faith in our numbers becaue she was indeed recalled by 12 points. What's...

    Successful recall elections Tuesday of two Democratic state senators in Colorado were because of “voter suppression, pure and simple,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz said Wednesday. Wasserman Schultz blamed lawsuits filed by opponents of gun control to prevent voters from mailing in ballots, the late announcement of polling locations, and “efforts by the NRA, the Koch brothers and other right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win.” “The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing

    The people of Colorado have spoken. In the state’s first ever recall election, voters successfully recalled senators John Morse and Angela Giron over their support of anti-liberty gun control legislation passed earlier in the year, sending a message that the destruction of freedom will not be tolerated – in the state of Colorado. Morse lost by less than 400 votes in his hotly-contested district of Colorado Springs. Giron lost by several thousand in Pueblo. Democrats will still maintain control of the state legislature, although the state’s Democratic governor might be next on the list of politicians to recall. Coloradans fought...
