Perhaps this sends a message to lawmakers outside the Colorado borders as well!



COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — In an unprecedented backlash, two state lawmakers who helped stiffen Colorado's gun laws were ousted Tuesday in a recall that turned into a nationally watched referendum on gun control.

Colorado Senate President John Morse, who shepherded the legislation to passage, was defeated on a 51%-49% vote. Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo, a fellow Democrat who voted in favor of the measures, lost 56% to 44%. They were replaced by Republicans who opposed the new restrictions.

This is what happens when lawmakers fail to pay attention to their constutients wishes. After so many times the people get peeved and vote the bums out. This is also another example of party agenda over the people wishes and wants.

As a Coloradan myself, I'm very pleased with the outcome & hope that Gov. Hickenlooper is paying attention or he will be next.
