The Secretary of State has approved the petition to recall State Senate President John Morse (D-Fountain), and the effort to obtain the necessary signatures is now underway.
Sen. Morse is directly responsible for passage of the most draconian gun control legislation in Colorado history, himself sponsoring a bill that would have imposed strict liability for the owner of any semi-automatic firearm in Colorado, even if the gun was criminally misused by another! Morse also publicly encouraged his fellow Democrats in the General Assembly to IGNORE the vast majority of their constituents who opposed the Dem-sponsored and Michael Bloomberg-financed gun-control legislation and enact the bills in spite of the overwhelming will of the people.
Morse, unable to run for re-election due to term-limits, believes he is politically untouchable because of his lame-duck status. It’s time for the voters in his district to show Sen. Morse and the rest of his gun-control cronies in the General Assembly that they work for the voters, not the other way around. Send a clear message to Sen. Morse and his fellow gun-grabbers about what happens to politicians who ignore the voters to ram through a radical political agenda that robs law-abiding citizens of their basic Constitutional rights!
Although only registered voters in Senate District 11 may sign the petition, any person 18 or older can gather signatures in support of the petition. If you are a resident of Senate District 11, make sure you are registered to vote and make sure you sign this petition! If you aren’t a resident of Senate District 11, you can still gather signatures for the recall drive.

Most already know of the intent of Magpul, Inc. and several other firearms-related businesses to leave Colorado, and take their jobs with them, if the proposed Democrat gun-control agenda in the General Assembly comes to fruition. Most of these restrictions on law-abiding gun owners are nearing the Governor’s desk for final approval to become law.
Combine this with the clear chilling effect these laws will have on shooters and sportsmen visiting Colorado (Is my gun or magazine legal? Can by son/brother/buddy share my rifle/shotgun?) and you have a seriously, BUT ENTIRELY PREVENTABLE, negative economic impact on our state.
Now, State Senator Steve King has released the following email from Colorado-based The Outdoor Channel:
The language of this email should be extremely frightening to EVERY Coloradoan and anyone who would contemplate coming to our state in the wake of these disastrous legislative proposals.
CALL GOVERNOR HICKENLOOPER (303) 866-2471/2885 AND ASK HIM WHY HE SUPPORTS A GUN-CONTROL AGENDA THAT WILL COST COLORADO MILLIONS IN LOST ECONOMIC REVENUE AND HUNDREDS OF GOOD-PAYING JOBS FOR COLORADO VOTERS AND TAXPAYERS!

COLORADO SENATE KILLS CAMPUS CCW BAN AND SEMI-AUTO LIABILITY BILLS, BUT PASSES MAGAZINE BAN, GUN TAX AND FOUNDATION FOR STATEWIDE CONFISCATION!
Thanks to the massive opposition communicated to legislators over the past several days, the sponsors of the proposed CCW ban on college campuses and strict liability for owners of semi-auto firearms withdrew their bills before they could be defeated in the Colorado Senate on Friday.
HB13-1226 would have banned all lawful concealed carry anywhere on the campuses of Colorado’s public colleges/universities. The bill came under immense fire after several Democrats in the General Assembly made insulting remarks regarding women’s rights and abilities to use firearms for self-defense.
The final straw came when recorded remarks by the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Claire Levy (D-Boulder), were released and revealed that Levy herself did not believe the bill would make college campuses any safer. A recent study showed that CU’s Boulder campus was one of the most dangerous campuses in America for female college students. SB13-196 would have imposed strict liability for the owners of any semi-auto shoulder-fired firearm used to harm any person.
The ridiculous concept, scope, and wording of the bill left even some Democrats scratching their heads in bewilderment. The bill’s sponsor, Senate President John Morse (D-Fountain), withdrew the bill before the vote on second reading Friday when it became apparent that support from even members of his own party was limited.
However, the rest of the news out of the State Senate is not so good.
On Monday, the Senate sent on to the State House SB13-197, which mandates the confiscation of ALL firearms of persons merely ACCUSED of an offense classified as an act of “domestic violence.” Any person accused of domestic violence who does not surrender all of his/her firearms to the police and verify same within three days commits a crime separate from any other pending charges. This confiscation of property whose ownership is a Constitutional right is mandated without proper, Constitutional due process under the lowest possible legal standard.
The Senate also sent on to the Governor for his signature HB13-1228 and 1229. HB13-1228 imposes a mandatory tax on all firearms transfers in Colorado. This bill places no limit on the tax amount and places no safeguards on the funds that are raised by this tax to ensure that the funds are spent ONLY on facilitating firearms purchases.
HB13-1229 goes hand-in-hand with the previous bill by mandating background checks for ALL firearms transfers, regardless of the source. Anytime a firearm changes hands, a background check must be completed AND REQUISITE TAX PAID in order for the transfer to be lawful. In addition to instantly turning law-abiding gun owners into unwitting criminals, this bill lays the foundation for statewide confiscation of all firearms.
As passed, HB13-1229 is totally unenforceable by any stretch of the imagination—even the U.S. Dept. of Justice has said that universal background checks are worthless without universal gun registration, which everyone knows is the final step for gun confiscation by the government.
Finally, a bill banning magazines of more than fifteen rounds (or eight rounds for shotguns) was also approved. Like all of the above bills, this bill was opposed by the County Sheriffs of Colorado in that it would do nothing to make people safer, but would infringe on the rights of law-abiding gun owners while empowering criminals.
PLEASE CALL GOVERNOR HICKENLOOPER AT (303) 866-2471 OR (303) 866-2885 AND URGE HIM TO VETO THESE BILLS THAT MAKE COLORADO A MORE DANGEROUS PLACE TO LIVE.

WHEN IT COMES TO FACING CONSTITUENTS WITH TOUGH QUESTIONS, ANTI-GUN DEMS WOULD RATHER HIDE THAN SWITCH!
An interesting and growing phenomenon has been noticed throughout Colorado in the past couple of weeks. Democrat legislators pushing or considering gun-control bills at the State Capitol have become harder to find and access by their constituents, especially at so-called town hall meetings where legislators are supposed to both report on activities at the capitol and receive comments/input/feedback from constituents on pending legislation. Last Saturday, Senate Majority Leader Morgan Carroll of Aurora and Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo were no-shows to their scheduled town hall meetings, and Sen. Jeanne Nicholson played musical-chairs with her posted meeting schedule. Now, Rep. Joe Salazar cancelled his town hall scheduled for Saturday.
Salazar’s cancellation comes after he garnered national attention for his inappropriate comments made during a debate about bill banning concealed-carry weapons on Colorado college campuses. Salazar said women don’t need guns on campus, stating--
“That’s why we have call boxes, that’s why we have safe zones, that’s why we have whistles, because you just don’t know who you’re going to be shooting at,” Salazar said.
Town hall meetings are a critical way for elected officials to listen to their constituents’ concerns. These Democrats were elected and are paid to represent their districts. House and Senate Democrats know they are running a radical agenda that is contrary to the will of the voters, but is that an excuse to run and hide? These legislators seem to think so…
Call these Democratic legislators and tell them to stop hiding and listen to their constituents at OPEN town hall meetings:
Rep. Joseph Salazar, D-Thornton
Senate Majority Leader Morgan Carroll, D-Aurora
Sen. Angela Giron, D-Pueblo
It’s time these Democratic legislators face their constituents to explain why they are ignoring the majority of their constituents and pushing a radical gun-control agenda drafted, financed and marketed by liberal interests from the East Coast.

Don’t be fooled, Colorado shooters, hunters and gun owners. The onslaught of gun-control legislation wending its way through the General Assembly in Denver was imported lock, stock and barrel from The Big Apple, courtesy former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg and his anti-gun money machine, Mayors Against Illegal Guns (a HUGE misnomer, as this group has absolutely NOTHING to do with keeping guns out of the hands of criminals). Bloomberg’s group is the finance and front for the group Demand a Plan, which uses shooting victims and their families as political props to cloud public reason and common sense with fear, emotion and hysteria. Bloomberg and his allies are pouring millions into Colorado in order to offset the clear and overwhelming tide of public opposition to the anti-gun agenda in the Colorado legislature authored by Bloomberg. That’s right, AUTHORED…as in written by Bloomberg and his cronies and fronted by anti-gun Dems in the General Assembly. It has been conclusively established that much of the language in the slew of anti-gun bills at the Colorado Capitol has been taken directly from model bills and documents provided by Bloomberg’s groups.
Don’t let Michael Bloomberg and his shills do to Colorado what they’ve done to New York and other liberal bastions like California, New Jersey, and Maryland. Tell your Colorado legislators that this is Colorado, and we don’t need the flawed and failed policies of New York imported to wreak the same havoc on personal protection and freedom in the Centennial State.

From State Senator Ted Harvey:
EFFECTIVE ADVOCACY 101: If you're coming to the Capitol tomorrow to watch the gun debates in the Senate, then consider using this simple tool.
You are entitled to send a business card or note into the chamber to invite a member out to talk with you. Just write "Senator [Last Name]" on the front and a brief note on the back to explain whether you are a constituent and what you would like to discuss. Then, give your card to the Senate Sergeants who will deliver your card to the member.
It's a friendly and easy way to communicate with your legislators during floor debate. You might even be invited to sit in the chamber with your Senator.
