Colorado Recalls Two State Senators Over Strict Gun Votes

In an historic recall election Tuesday, voters ousted state Senate President John Morse over his support of tougher gun laws passed earlier this year.

Morse thanked and urged fellow lawmakers to continue fighting Tuesday as voters ousted him from office for his support for stricter Colorado gun laws.

"It has been an honor to represent the 11th Senate District," said Morse, who is the first Colorado lawmaker to be recalled and thrown out of office. "It's been hugely rewarding."

With almost 100 percent of votes counted in the historic recall election of Morse, returns show 51 percent have voted "yes" and 49 percent "no."

 Angela Giron ousted in Colorado recall election

State Sen. Angela Giron has been recalled and retired Pueblo deputy police chief George Rivera voted in as her replacement.

With 100 percent of the votes counted, about 56 percent called for Giron to be unseated. About 44 percent voted for her retention, according to final results reported by the Pueblo County Clerk and Recorder.

A stunned Giron conceded just after 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

"We couldn't have done any more," she told the crowd gathered at Pueblo Union Depot that had shrunk to about 50 from about 200 at the height of what began as a victory party.

"I'm a little perplexed. This is what I know: I know that I have not one iota of regret from what I voted on," she said.

We are, one step at a time. What's instructive is, the Colorado legislature concocted this voter law that allows anybody to go up to an election poll judge and claim that you intend to live in That election district, and you can get a ballot. The Democrat Party pushed this through on the prior legislative session. This voter registration law was signed by Gov. Hick.. on the very last day. The original change in law was to take effect for the 2014 election cycle, but in a moment of panic the Dems changed the effective date to be the date the Gov. signed the bill. Be careful what you wish for...

David -We're on our way, or at least that's MHO!

Hey John, that is a major problem as our great country is split by the numbers in their vote.  If we are to remain a strong, free country it should have been 80-20 as you said.  We really need a strong, likeable conservative to step foward and get us out of the crazy mess we are in now.  It really, really needs to happen in the next election.

Before you go after the Colo folks for being down right stupid,,,think about us in Calif, we have this guy in the state senate who name is like DeLeion or something like that, I am convinced that if in his case if it were not for the autonomic nervous system,,,,he would not get one more heart beat!

OK folks that's a good start now what about recalling some of the scum at the national level it wouldn't take too many of those guys before we got their attention...elections are next month

Fellow TEA Partiers, this  is the fat lady warming up. The Gov. said the recall was undemocratic, and he signed this voter law to be effective for this recall election. Too bad, So Sad.... Mayor Bloomberg donated $350,000; Too Bad, So Sad.... Hickenlooper is up for re-election, Too Bad, So Sad....

As Joe Biden would say, "This is a big fu@@@en deal! Maybe this will send a msg. To Washington, you don't pass laws because of what you believe in, you pass laws because of what your constituents, We the People, believe in.

WAKE UP AMERICA !!!!!...THIS IS WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN TO ALL POLITICIANS IN EVERY STATE IN AMERICA WHEN THEY TRY TO INFRINGE ON OUR 2ND AMMENDMENT RIGHTS !!!!...GET ACTIVE IN YOUR STATES AND VOTE ALL THIS LEFT WING, LIBERAL, DEMOCRATIC/COMMUNIST TRASH OUT OF OFFICE!!!!!....SAVE OUR GUN RIGHTS

Way to go Colorado !

Second Amendment supporters around the country were supporting you.  We need to continue to work to widen the margin.

Can these dimwits not read the CONSTITUTION?

There are a few 2nd amendment smart people in Colorado. Good for them to rid themselves of traitorous senators. Hope they can keep working to rid themselves of the rest of the anti-Americans in their state congress. God is good to those who serve him.

What the vast majority of our national and state legislators fail to realize is that they are elected to cast votes that represent the will of the people in the districts and states from which they are elected. They are not elected to vote their personal conscience or the wishes of their paid lobbyists.

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
