The spokeswoman for the group that led the historic recall last week of two Colorado state legislators said her group will continue to push the ball down the field to get the laws repealed. The recalled legislators supported the state’s restrictive gun control legislation that Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed into law earlier this year.
Jennifer Kerns, of the Basic Freedom Defense Fund, appeared on Breitbart News Sunday on Sirius XM Patriot channel 125 with Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and said her group sent a letter to all of Colorado’s state legislators. The letter asked if they would vote for a full repeal of Colorado’s unconstitutional gun laws and, if the vote failed, if they would support a ballot initiative to repeal the laws.
“We won and now we want more,” Kerns said.
Last week, voters in Colorado recalled state Senators Angela Giron (D-Pueblo) and John Morse (D-Colo. Springs) despite the $350,000 outgoing New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg spent to keep the legislators in office.
Kerns said ultimately, the David versus Goliath effort to recall the senators tapped into the “power of the people and the grassroots” against the political establishment.
