I'm surprised I didn't see this here yet...

Quote:Two Democratic lawmakers in Colorado, including the president of the state senate, were recalled Tuesday in elections brought about by their support for tougher gun control laws.

According to unofficial results, voters in Colorado Springs favored recalling state Sen. John Morse, the body's president, by 51 percent to 49 percent. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, state Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo was defeated in her recall election, 56 percent to 44 percent.

The Colorado Republican Party called the vote results "a loud and clear message to out-of-touch Democrats across the nation" in a statement released late Tuesday.

Of course one of the nitwits spouted the same rhetoric about how they're on the right side, blah blah blah, but this is fantastic news!

What does it mean to be recalled, exactly?

Removed from office and replaced by the people they were running against?

So no instead of the Colorado Senate having two anti-gun democrats who voted for the Colorado gun bans, they now have two republicans who opposed them.

Your question made me wonder if I missed something, but per the article that's it--they were 'ousted' from office.

No, I never really looked into what recall was.

That's great news!

Until the laws are repealed, it's a hollow victory.
Liberals are perfectly fine with a little collateral damage but the ENDS is all they care about.
They moved the goalposts, they love incrementalism.

If the voting populace of Colorado is strong enough to recall those two, maybe there is hope of having their recent anti-gun legislation repealed.

I'm under the impression that this would be the first step. Why bother to try and repeal the legislation if you leave everyone there who voted it in?

It wasn't just the anti-gun rhetoric. These 2 folks came out on TV and said that they didn't care what their district voters said. They would vote the way they wanted to, basically ignoring the people that put them in office. That was part of it as well.

The funny part is that Bloomberg injected $325K into getting the recall defeated... HAHA! He lost!

Yes. Repealing the recently enacted gun laws in Colorado is the next step that may or may not happen.

On a wider note, it does make a clearer statement to other elected officials that they can be voted out. I'm thinking Pat Toomey.
