Colorado Lawmakers Under Recall Threat for Gun-Control Votes

A slew of new gun restrictions in Colorado might mean recall elections for Democratic lawmakers.

Efforts are underway to recall three state senators and one representative who voted for a slate of new gun measures, signed by Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper March 20. After a nonprofit group failed to organize the recalls with centralized (and undisclosed) funding, the campaigns are being run by activists spread out across the state.

Gun-rights supporters are collecting signatures to recall state Senate President John Morse, state Sens. Evie Hudak and Angela Giron, and state Rep. Mike McLachlan, with more recall efforts are on the way, activists say. A website and Facebook page promote the recall of state Rep. Rhonda Fields, who sponsored two of the recent gun bills, but the Colorado Secretary of State’s office said it has not received an application for a petition to recall Fields.
