I feel so sorry for the Anti-Constitutional, Anti Second Amendment "B" and her counterpart in Colorado I could just cry! How about you? Even Bill Clinton advised Obama that he did not want to go there! Keep up the good fight and God Bless the good Americans and FTF Members in Colorado! Way TO GO! Becuase as has been proven over and over we can win and protect our Second Amendment and just for reference if they should have any doubts WE WILL! We need to target NY and Calif next!

Here is an article from the NSSF for those wanting to know some details.

Colorado Voters Rise Up and Oust Two State Senators Instrumental in Passing Strict Gun Control laws


Source: Denver Post
In Colorado this week, grassroots citizen action triumphed over millions of dollars in broadcast advertising paid for, in large part, by out-of-state gun control organizations, including the one led and funded by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The recall elections of State Senate President John Morse, representing Colorado Springs, and Angela Giron, representing Pueblo, drew widespread national attention. It is true that the Coloradans who initiated and ran the recall effort also had some financial help from national organizations, but they were outspent approximately six to one by those defending Morse and Giron.

NSSF issued a statement Wednesday congratulating both the leaders of the grassroots effort and the two new state senators, Bernie Herpin and George Rivera, both men eminently qualified to represent their constituents. Herpin is a retired Air Force officer and Colorado Springs city council member. Rivera is a retired Pueblo deputy police chief. Both Morse and Giron were criticized for failing to listen to their constituents. That problem has been rectified.

WAY TO GO!

I'm sure by now you've all seen Giron's interview on CNN. If you were wondering, yes that really is how she is all the time. We are elated to be rid of her! Here is a great article by Charles C.W. Cooke on the events leading up to the recall. Definitely worth a read. http://m.nationalreview.com/corner/358005/pueblo-recall-guerilla-politics-reign-charles-c-w-cooke

At this point in time, I think the only "targeting" that should be involved on those 2 states would be several dozen very high yield thermonuclear devices throughout each state.

Giron on CNN was a big boo boo for the gun grabbers. She blamed it on voter suppression and money from outside interests. The host called her sorry butt out! IIRC, the NRA spent around $324,000 to help the recall, the gun grabbers including Mayors Against All Guns(MAIG) spent over $3,000,000.

Same old crap every time the progressives/libratards get defeated in taking our rights. Step 1: Blame GOP. Step 2: Attack outside interests, mainly the NRA. Step 3: Claim voter suppression/voter ID laws allowed this travesty to happen. Step 4: Villify the opposition using buzz words such as racism, common sense, the children, and reasonable restrictions.

Yep, been there done that, and guess what it looks like? It looks the same as an acre of land fenced off with 30 bulls inside. Full of sh!t.

Hey, Bad Idea, Dont get crazy here! Were still fighting the big fight here in NY, Cali is doing the same. The physical state of NY is pro 2A, it NYC that ran us aground, Bloomie and his consorts are clearly the issue and they are being dealt with.

Unfortunately, we dont have recall as an option but were going to get our rights back and more before were done.

So it's not every State that has recall vote? Or did you mean that the majority would side with anti-gun anyway?
First time I heard about recall votes and I don't know much about them.
We don't have anything like that.

It's an interesting debate that transcends the gun control issue actually. Should elected officials be always in a position to be removed? Or like Edmund Burke and many other thinkers saw it, is necessary to forbid the imperative mandate? Both options seem to have their rather dark downsides.


edit: some more info i found, pretty interesting

The people hire them and the people should be able to fire them

Winer, only 19 states have recall elections as a possibility via their constitutions. NY is not one of those.

I believe the answer to that is yes, If a majority of voters can put you in, a majority should be able to put you out if your not serving their needs. Being forced to wait until the end of their terms is rewarding bad behavior with a paycheck.
