If you’ve been following my Twitter feed all night, you already know the news: Here in my adopted hometown of Colorado Springs, freedom-loving citizens have successfully recalled state Sen. president John Morse — who spearheaded the legislative push for extreme gun control laws backed by outgoing NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg, Vice President Joe Biden, and out-of-state gun-grabbing lobbyists.◼ Anti-gun Colorado state Senate President recalled - Le-gal In-sur-rec-tion
The significance of this historic and unprecedented battle cannot be overstated. As I’ve reported over the past several months, the effort was an astonishing grass-roots effort in which ordinary citizens gathered more than 16,000 signatures for a recall petition in Colorado Springs over a matter of weeks. The role of women (Coloradans Laura Carno, Kelly Maher, Kim Weeks were among the leading lights) in pushing back against false gun-grabbing narratives and smears was invaluable. The birth control fear-mongering failed. The use of social media to organize echoes other successful Tea Party efforts.
