CO Dem: Gun Control Doomed if Recall Succeeds
Heading into the September 10th recall elections of Colorado state senators Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and John Morse (D-Colorado Springs), it is important for voters to remember Giron's admission that if either she or Morse falls it will be detrimental to NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's gun control dreams.
Giron's said: "For Mayors Against Illegal Guns, if they even lose one of these seats, they might as well fold it up. And they understand that."
Her comments came in a New Republic report from late August, around the same time that Bloomberg was dumping $350,000 into helping Giron and Morse stave off Colorado voters.
Maybe Colorado voters need to take Giron's words to heart and think about it this way: a vote for Giron is a vote to prop up Bloomberg's machine for future gun control pushes around the country, while a vote against Giron is a vote to stop Bloomberg's runaway gun control agenda.
The NRA has tried to counter Bloomberg's impact by using money in strategic ways in the recall efforts. And Magpul Industries--the popular Denver-based AR-15 "high capacity" magazine maker--has done its part to purchase ads to combat Bloomberg's efforts as well.
But as one GOP strategist told Breitbart News, it ultimately "all comes down to turnout."
