Here's what I originally posted:
There are those who are trying to play down the Colorado recall over gun regulation, but I’m not one them.
This was a big, fear laden victory for an ever growing movement of civil vigilantism.
When Americans are faced with this…
…two mass shootings last year – at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and a Newtown, Conn., elementary school.
…that resulted in two sensible attempts to reduce the ease of committing these public acts of execution:
Both (recalled) state legislators voted for 15-round limits on ammunition magazines and for expanded background checks on private gun sales.
You've got to wonder just how bad this is going to get. Knowing a few of my conservative friends has opened my eyes to the right wings volatility over events in the news, mostly imagined, that anger them to the point desperation and near hopelessness.
The Colorado state senate president who faced a backlash after casting votes for gun control has conceded in a race to recall him from office, and … a second state lawmaker (also) lost her recall vote. "We as the Democratic Party will continue to fight," the Denver Post quoted Sen. John Morse as saying. "The highest rank in democracy is citizen, not senate president, so soon, along with many of you, I will hold that rank and there's nothing citizens can't accomplish when they put their minds to accomplishing it."
Attempts to pass reasonable gun laws isn't just dead, is created a backlash that now has the ability to control elections, bringing about an entirely different and unpredictably violent society based on one issue.
Kurt Bardella, a communications consultant for the recall said, "The people of Colorado have made history tonight sending a loud and clear message that will reverberate through-out the county and alter the terrain of the gun-control debate."
The gun culture continues to rot away at human nature. And the majority of American who choose not to arm themselves may soon have too. Hows that for liberty and freedom?
Democratic-leaning Connecticut, Maryland, and New York also passed tougher gun laws without a recall effort making a state ballot.
