    DENVER — A recall campaign submitted stacks of petitions Monday to oust Colorado Senate President John Morse in what could become a national referendum on gun rights.
    Organizers said they turned in more than 16,000 signatures, well in excess of the 7,178 valid signatures needed to force the recall and even more than the 13,866 votes received by Mr. Morse in the 2010 election.

    SPECIAL COVERAGE: Second Amendment and Gun Control

    “It just goes to show how interested people are in making sure Morse is recalled,” said recall organizer Rob Harris.
    Mr. Morse, a Democrat from Colorado Springs, became a recall target for his role in pushing three gun-control measures signed by the governor in March. Another recall effort against Democratic state Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo is scheduled to submit petitions June 10.
    The Secretary of State’s office has 15 business days to verify the signatures. If the recall effort meets the threshold, Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper will be charged with calling a special election or placing the recall on the November ballot.
    Any recall election is expected to draw national interest from groups on both sides of the firearms debate.
    The Washington-based Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee fired off a statement Monday describing organizers as “extremists in Colorado who want to waste hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars.
    There's more than one way to skin a skunk!

    Congratulations are in order for the voters who signed this petition and also for the sheriffs who are standing up for liberty. There actually may be some hope for the state of Colorado. There were more names on the recall petition than Morse received when he was originally elected. These would be tryants really need to be taught a lesson.

  4. so what lesson will they learn? will it cost them pain, blood, dollars actually out of their pockets. ? no, it won't. but it is a step in the right direction.

    Actually prison would be a good idea. But if every politician was jailed for violating their oath of office we would have none remaining. But an adequate lesson could be that if you abuse your power; you lose it.

    If the congress critter that the people of his district have lost their confidence in him then they have every right to recall him. If he has broken any laws while in office he should be brought up on charges and suffer the full weight of justice not just the law. A lot of these congress critters act like they've been elected King and can do whatever they wish. They need to understand they serve the people not themselves. And all the people not just the ones that agree with him/her.
