    Sheriffs who oppose the slew of Democrat sponsored gun control laws in New New York (Colorado) apparently do not have sufficient standing to take part in the lawsuit against the state. Right before Thanksgiving, a US District Court Judge ruled that the Colorado Sheriffs who joined a lawsuit against the Bloomberg inspired legislation, will not be able take part in their official capacity as elected law enforcement representatives. (The lawsuit, however, will continue; and the Sheriffs will be permitted to join the effort as individuals.) According to CBS news, US District Court Judge Marcia Krieger said that “if individual sheriffs...

    Citing polling data with poorly (or dishonestly) worded questions, anti-Second Amendment ideologues often argue that gun control is popular. The real test, though, is what happens on election day. That’s why it was such big news when two incumbent Democrats from Colorado’s State Senate were defeated in a recall election. They both represented districts that had voted for Obama, yet they were easily tossed out of office after voting for legislation to restrict the rights of law-abiding citizens. Well, as Yogi Berra would say, it’s deja vu all over again. Another statist politician has been forced out of a job...

    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....

    Somewhere, up there, Andrew Breitbart is celebrating. On September 10, 2013, the legendary gadfly whose huge heart gave out far too soon chalked up a three more big wins in his campaign to take America back from the hypocritical liberal snobs he despised. In New York, a Democrat electorate soundly rejected Anthony Wiener’s creepy comeback bid. And in Colorado, an enraged citizenry defied everything the liberal establishment could throw at them and tossed out a pair of Democrat state senators who thought they could trample on the basic civil right to keep and bear arms. Neither victory would have been...

    Democrats apparently can never just loose an election.  Something sinister, even illegal, must be the reason. "I'm not sure what happened," former State Senator Angela Giron told the Denver Post the morning after she was trounced in a first of its kind recall election in Colorado.  Now, she's got a different story – voter suppression.Angela Giron lost her Senate District 3 seat in Pueblo, Colorado in a recall election last Tuesday by more than 12 points, 56.0% to 43.9%.   This is particularly stunning as hers is a district composed of nearly 50% registered Democrats. Barack Obama won the district by nearly 20...

    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...
  • PPP admits hiding Colorado recall poll

    A spokesman for Public Policy Polling admitted Wednesday to withholding a poll showing Colorado voters were going to recall State Sen. Angela Giron by a 12-point margin. The reason, according to PPP pollster Tom Jensen, was that “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.” When the votes were counted in race, the poll turned out to be on target, as Giron lost by 12 points. “We should have had more faith in our numbers,” Jensen said....

    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...

    Citizen journalists and activists with Revealing Politics were attacked as they filmed outside of polling places ahead of Colorado’s contentious recall. The journos can be seen on tape quietly going about their work when one videographer is repeatedly physically attacked by a man. ... The Colorado recall election of Senate President John Morse is one of the most nationally watched political events in the country. With the passage of a poorly-written and difficult to understand bill that now allows for same-day voter registration in effect for the recall elections, it became clear to Revealing Politics that we need to shine...

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg said he would consider backing the two legislators in a showdown that the Times described as "a test of whether politicians, largely Democrats, outside big cities and deep-blue coastal states can survive the political fallout of supporting stricter gun laws." By dint of his dedication to the issue and deep pockets, Bloomberg has used his Mayors Against Illegal Guns to make himself the modern-day face of the gun control movement. After reading this morning's newspaper about two like-minded legislators under duress, Bloomberg wrote himself a note to "check" if Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the organization he co-founded...

    DENVER– Senate President John Morse issued a national plea for help to out-of-state supporters from Boston to San Francisco as Colorado Democrats went on the offensive Tuesday to save him from a recall vote. A spokeswoman for A Whole Lot of People for John Morse announced Tuesday that a protest had been filed to nullify the recall petitions within hours after the Colorado Secretary of State’s office declared that the petitions were sufficient to force a recall election. Meanwhile, Morse urged out-of-state supporters to help him keep his Colorado Springs legislative seat by donating their money and time. “[A]ny help...
