The upcoming 2014 mid-term elections aren’t the first time pro-gun voters have had a chance to make their voices heard at the ballot box, post-Newtown knee-jerk gun control legislation. You may recall Colorado’s 2013 recall election. Voters punted State Senate President John Morse and State Senator Angela Giron, two Democratic pols who supported the Rocky Mountain State’s post-Newtown “high capacity” ammunition magazine ban and “universal background checks” (and new fees for same). Bills Governor Hickenlooper signed. And then regretted signing. Or not. And now the Hickster’s in the frame, staring down the barrel of unemployment . . .
As are a number of anti-gun pols throughout the country, despite being bolstered by Mayor Bloomberg’s $25m ad spend. It’s not all about the guns, but will the firearms freedom vote be the key element in the mid-terms? And if it is, will ant-gun pols get the message?
