Pro-Recall Forces to Take Next Step in CO: Repeal Gun Control Laws
The founders of Basic Freedom Defense Fund (BFDF) and Pueblo Freedom & Rights announce they are now pursuing the logical next step in Colorado--the repeal of the draconian gun laws supported senators John Morse (D-Colo. Springs) and Angela Giron (D-Pueblo).
In a joint September 13 letter issued to all CO legislators, the pro-recall groups ask:
1. Will you vote for a repeal of Colorado's unconstitutional new gun laws in the 2014 legislative session?
2. Would you support a ballot initiative which would repeal the new gun laws?
Reflecting on the successful recall efforts, BFDF spokeswoman Jennifer Kerns said:
While we consider Tuesday's election a significant victory, we realize that...egregious gun laws remain and we want to know where each and every Colorado legislator stands on them. It is a new day in Colorado, and constituents expect their legislators to represent the will of the people. No one is immune from the reach of the grassroots efforts which powered the [September 10] recall elections. No one.
A petition urging Colorado legislators to repeal the gun control will go live on September 16 at www.recallandrepeal.com
