If you read this morning’s quote of the day – and the linked New York Times article – it seems evident that Colorado Senate President John Morse has an uphill climb in front of him. And he knows it. He’s furiously flailing, trying to fend off people in his Colorado Springs district who are just crazy enough to think that the Constitution actually means what it says. Go figure. And while the People of the Gun in Angela Giron’s Pueblo constituency may have a tougher row to hoe to unseat her, the anti-gun left appears to be going all in to avoid what would be a couple of embarrassing (and educational) losses. To wit: here’s an email blast from
Mr. Gabrielle Giffords Captain Mark Kelly designed to hoover up some cash to defend the two anti-gunners . . . [h/t Chip K.]
For decades, the gun lobby has threatened electoral revenge on public officials who advocate for meaningful solutions to reduce gun violence.
It’s how they scare candidates and elected officials from taking action on this issue. And until now, it’s been a successful strategy.
But we can stop that trend — right here, right now — in Colorado.
NRA-leadership and their allies are running recall campaigns against two Colorado State Senators, Democrats John Morse and Angela Giron, who helped pass expanded background checks and a high capacity magazine ban earlier this year.
This recall is extraordinarily important and Gabby and I plan to do whatever it takes to defeat it. Will you join us by making a $5 contribution to Americans for Responsible Solutions to get us started today?
This is exactly why we started this organization, and now we have a chance to prove how far we’ve come in just six months.
Election Day is September 10th, but voting begins on August 19th.
We need you now,
Americans for Responsible Solutions
