Hello. I'm a resident of the great purple state of Colorado. You know, the state that voted for Obama twice, and put Democrats in the control of the state government. Exactly the sort of state that is vital for Democrats, I would think.
Well, in case you haven't heard, two Colorado Democrats were just recalled for the crime of supporting some (pretty wimpy) gun control measures.
From the New York Times:
... gun-control advocates far outspent their opponents. A range of philanthropists, liberal political groups, unions and activists raised a total of $3 million to defend Mr. Morse and Ms. Giron. Mr. Bloomberg personally gave $350,000.I want to state here, that I am not a member of RKBA. I actually was a member briefly, but I got unceremoniously kicked out -- you see, I believe that all handguns and semiautomatic weapons should be illegal, and that long guns should be limited to a 3-round magazine.
Sen. Angela Giron lost significantly. State Sen. President John Morse lost by 343 votes out of nearly 18,000 votes.
Mr. Morse, who was also the Senate president, will be replaced by his challenger on the ballot, Bernie Herpin, a Republican former city councilman from Colorado Springs.
But wait. Why would a person who believes that ever join RKBA in the first place? Well, there was a single short phrase in their boilerplate that I found unanswerable. It was this:
more gun control equals lost elections.Sorry. but I may not be around for comments. I am very depressed and in the last stages of drinking myself unconscious.
