As we surely know here is Arizona, if you push through controversial legislation, it can come back to bite you fairly quickly. Wee have now received a release showing a drive to recall the State Senate President of Colorado due to the latest legislation passed that goes against their state resident's 2nd Amendment rights. We have heard that there are residents fighting back in the state. Clearly they have a lot of work to do in order to reverse the course of their states laws, but hopefully they can get enough people behind this to send a message for their own state legislators and those across the nation to keep their hands of these political maneuvers to deprive our rights.
Colorado Springs, CO, April 3, 2013--Colorado grassroots group begins recall of State Senate President for attacks against Constitution and Bill of Rights. The group has the Colorado Secretary of States' approval to begin gathering signatures for the recall of Colorado State Senate President John Morse (D.) for his stand and leadership against the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution and his attack on the constitutional rights of Colorado citizens.
The Basic Freedom Defense Fund (BFDF) was recently formed to educate the public concerning their Constitutional rights and to hold state politicians accountable for voting against the express wishes and Constitutional rights of their constituency.
BFDF's spokesperson, Nick Andrasik --"Senate President Morse has made it very clear - through both his words and his actions - that he put greater value on the thoughts of interest groups in Washington D.C. and New York City than those of his own Colorado constituency.
"In a recent interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow, Morse stated that he advised fellow Senators to ignore the thousands of emails* sent in opposition and that he (Morse) was 'proud of my caucus... and the way they've gotten this done.' This behavior is more that of a tyrant, not an elected official. The contempt and arrogance displayed in the face of an enormous outcry of objection from tens of thousands of Colorado citizens shows how little Mr. Morse cares for the will of the people of Colorado and solidifies our position that he should no longer be in office."
Several public meetings have been held in Colorado Springs, with hundreds of concerned and outraged Coloradans turning out to protest what they feel are extremely dangerous attacks on the Constitution and innocent citizens' rights by Colorado politicians supported by outsiders from Washington and New York City.
BFDF intends to educate and support disenfranchised Coloradans in an organized effort to remove elitist legislators from public office through a more informed constituency in future elections and through the recall process initially.
