Gun Rights Organizations Launch Recall Effort

by EMILY DERUY, ABC News  |  published on July 9, 2013

Opponents of gun control measures successfully prevented Congress from strengthening federal gun laws earlier this year, and now they’re sending a message to states — Don’t try this at home.

Colorado is the current target. The state recently passed stricter gun control measures. Now, the president of the Senate there might lose his job for championing that effort.

Democrat John Morse, a former police chief, faces a recall attempt because he successfully advocated a series of laws that ban the sale of high-capacity magazines and require universal background checks.

A recall election could happen as early as August or September, and that could have serious implications.

Other states might decline to take up the issue, even where there is public support, because elected officials fear backlash from a vocal but powerful few (read: the National Rifle Association’s lobbying arm).
