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

    Breitbart ^ | 10 Jul 2014 | Charlie Spiering
    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. ......

    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....

    The Washington Post ^ | September 20, 2013 | Angela Giron
    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....
  • Colorado Gun-Grabber Angela Giron Confirms Why She Was Recalled

    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 Dems: "It's about voter suppression"

    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...

  • 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....

    National Review ^ | 12 sept 2013 | John Lott
    Two weeks ago, the Washington Post declared the recall elections of two powerful state senators in Colorado a national “referendum on guns.” Indeed, the defeat of state-senate president John Morse and fellow state senator Angela Giron will cause some Democrats to rethink their push on gun control. But of course, many Democrats have reacted by shrugging off the results. Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has dismissed the losses as the result of “voter suppression, pure and simple” (orchestrated by the National Rifle Association and the Koch brothers, of course). Mark Glaze, executive director of Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against...

    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 recall effort against two Democrat lawmakers who championed tougher gun laws in Colorado succeeded, the Associated Press reported early this morning. Senate President John Morse, along with Sen. Angela Giron were turned out by voters angered over their support for citizen disarmament measures so extreme that manufacturers are leaving the state and a “sporting sequester” boycott has been proposed.While Morse has dismissed the recall as “purely symbolic,” those who ousted him would argue otherwise. He occupies of the most powerful offices in the state, and his defeat not only showed the power of grassroots gun rights activists when...

    Last night's recall elections, the first two in the history of Colorado, were hugely successful in driving two democratic state senators from office. John Morse and Angela Giron, were both recalled yesterday, in which the nation looked on as a referendum for gun control. Giron's loss was somewhat unexpected, since democrats outnumber republicans in that district, by a whopping 47% to 23%. Since the recall petitions went out, the elections have been seen of national importance for both sides. Gun control has always been a national issue that have led to certain defeat on election day, but forces within the...

    In two high-profile elections on opposite sides of the country on Tuesday, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was a big loser. The first came in his backyard of New York, where Democratic voters are on the verge of making Bill de Blasio their nominee for mayor. ... But perhaps the bigger loss for Bloomberg came in Colorado, where two Democratic state lawmakers were recalled after backing stricter gun laws in the wake of two mass shootings last year in Aurora, Colo., and Newtown, Conn. The NRA headlined its press release celebrating the recall elections, "Michael Bloomberg Suffers Resounding Defeat."...

    Any wind still left in the sails of gun control advocates likely died—at least for now—when Colorado voters successfully recalled two state senators on Sept. 10. This stern punishment came after lawmakers in the Mile High state toughened regulations on background checks and limited the size of ammo magazines. It was a rout. Billionaire New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg led a team of deep-pocketed out-of-towners in trying to rescue state senate president John Morse and his colleague Sen. Angela Giron, both Democrats. But the grassroots rebellion, fanned and funded by the National Rifle Association and other conservative groups, was...

    Colorado voters kicked Democratic state senators John Morse and Angela Giron out of office Tuesday, the first legislators in the state’s 137-year history to be recalled by their constituents. The Democrats were targeted for their support of strict new gun laws that have drawn both opposition and support since they were passed by a Democratic-controlled state legislature earlier this year, but the opponents had final say in the hard-fought races.

    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...

  • Bloomberg Wasted $350,000 on Colorado Recall

    From the moment the recall effort in Colorado began, money started flowing in from out-of-state gun control proponents and influence flowed in from Chicago. It was all part of an effort to protect state senators Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and John Morse (D-Colo. Springs) from being recalled. And by extension, it was about protecting Colorado's new gun control laws as well. When the gun control measures were passed, and then signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper (D) on March 20, Coloradans in Giron and Morse's districts felt hoodwinked. El Paso County Sherrif Terry Maketa said, "The two senators dismissed [their...

    Last night, Mayor Bloomberg of New York City was heard to issue a big gulp. The stridently anti-gun Mayor, who wishes to impose his hoplophobic vision on the rest of the country, was defeated soundly, and twice, as two of his Colorado-based cronies were both defeated in the first recall votes in Colorado State Legislature history.Both Senator John Morse -- himself the Senate Majority Leader -- and Senator Angela Giron voted for onerous and far-reaching gun control measures in Colorado in March of 2013, including a ban on the purchase of normal-capacity magazines (HB1224).The reaction by gun-owners in the firearms-friendly...
