    averages, on most measures of gun law and gun injury and death. I reject the notion that CO residents are extremist about guns.

    Even if we win the recall (and I hope we do), those advocating for expansion of RKBA have promised to continue attacked the laws by putting them on a ballot initiative.

    There are a lot of voters who never paid much attention to gun policy until recently, and we are not going away. http://www.pbs.org/...

    And RKBA groups in the state will continue their litigation campaign as they percolate up to SCOTUS. For reasons we can all see, Congress can't move forward, so all the action is going to happen at the state and local level.

      you're not from here, you don't' live here, you don't phone bank here, you don't canvas here. Why not work on GOTV where you live and leave us alone eh? We've got a recall going on due to stupid shit, we don't need any more.

        You have your opinion and your local perspective. I assume that you are, like mose Kossack RKBA advocates a responsible law abiding gun owner and hunter.

        I've posted some facts and some independent analyses with links to the sources from which they derive. You don't agree.

        Feel free to post links and sources for your claims that I'm lying, for your claims that I misreported CDC Vital Statistics, that WaPo misreported their analysis based on CDC Vital Statistics, that the Law Center for Prevention of Gun Violence has failed to accurately summarize CO gun laws.

        With all due respect, I sometimes think you make cogent arguments, and I rec them when I agree, and generally skip them when I don't.

        You expressed your opinions about New York, New Yorkers, and about me very clearly above. Being called names such as gun grabber, antis, etc. have no impact. To quote our future Senator form Kentucky, "I don't scare easy."

      •  The two recall districts (0+ / 0-)

        will have to foot the bill for the elections. No reimbursement from the state.

        I misspoke earlier when I referred to a state wide election.
