    yourself and your fellow gun folk that the gun lobby flexed its "considerable" muscle and showed people whose in charge.

    Tell me, what exactly has the gun lobby gained? The laws are still on the books, and after the lawsuit against Gov Hickenlooper fails, those laws will be set in stone for centuries.

    I can tell you what they lost - respect. The gun lobby comes off as extremist - you are correct, it is the ONLY recall in Colorado history for a reason, a group of extremists put a gun to the head of the electorate.  

    Talk to me next year when Bernie Halprin and George Rivera are defeated in a real election, you know, where Coloradoans can vote the way they are most accustomed - by mail - and people are actually paying attention.

    •  The 'gun lobby' didn't do shit. (0+ / 0-)

      The voters did.

      Somehow promising the electorate that they will lose liberties and be prohibited from buying legal objects because of the crimes of murderers didn't endear them to Morse or Giron.
      Go figure.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

        ... what are they serving for lunch today at the Americans for Prosperity cafeteria? Are the Koch's cheap?

          You're their guest of honor for handing them 2 Senate seats.

          You're the kind of game-changer they were looking for.

          •  What was handed to them was universal (0+ / 0-)

            background checks, a 15 round limit on magazines, in person concealed carry permitting only (no online), guns out of the hands of domestic abusers. I'd be glad to hand them that again.

            Those who would sacrifice cats for dogs deserve neither
