No matter how you try to spin it….YOU LOST in Colorado. You will continue to lose as gun owners get organized and fight you at every turn. Just so you know where I stand…..no further gun laws are needed, enforce what us already on the books and NOT being enforced. No American citizen needs a CCW permit from a state, the 2nd Amendment is our permit. I am not a hunter, stop trying to tell us that the 2nd Amendment is about hunting, it is for Americans to stop tyrants from taking over this country.

Love the language used here by the thoughtful, enlightened metrosexual spokesperson!

“Common sense”…implying of course, that those who oppose it do not have common sense.

“State of the art gun bill”…just like all the others that were passed throughout the 20th century. Can you say “failed policies of the past?” Again, insinuating that people who oppose it must be backward and wrong-thinking.

“The gun lobby and conservative special interest groups”…exactly what special interest groups do these three plumbers represent?

Spin, spin, spin. You only further cement the perception that you and your ilk are COMPLETELY out of touch with the people. You actually just did us a service, putting the public on notice that you learned NOTHING.

I’m glad these idiots got torched last night. The message is clear, to those who will see: vote for gun control at your peril.

I think his most overlooked comment happens at 28 seconds when he used the phrase “even so”. Think about what he is saying when he uses that phrase. Basically, even though the majority of the people of the state are against those laws, the political body went ahead and passed them anyway, against the will of the people. That speaks volumes regarding the intent of MAIG. In other words, we don’t care what the people want, this is what we are going to do anyway.

Of course you leave out the fact that the left-leaning Public Policy Polling group polled Giron’s district and nailed the 12 point victory margin. They also polled a match up between Governor Hickenlooper who signed these bills and Tom Tancredo, the anti-illegal immigration former Colorado congressman. Remember, Giron’s district is heavily Democratic (+19% Obama in 2012) and heavily Hispanic. Tanc and Hick are tied at 42% per in Pueblo. No wonder they suppressed the poll for a week!

The fact is that Hick’s sky high popularity was trashed when he bought into your agenda. Immediately after the Aurora shooting he spoke the truth and said no new gun laws would have stopped this. His numbers went UP after that statement!

In January he was singing a whole different tune. This was after MAIG and the white house worked him over and blew smoke up his skirt encouraging his presidential aspirations. You should have promised him 72 virgins because he went out and committed political suicide for the mullahs at MAIG-DNC.

He spoke about having a “conversation” about guns. Probably got that focus group tested word from MAIG-DNC. Apparently “conversation” in your dictionary really means an ideological rampage through the second amendment and a rape of Colorado’s gun owners. See also: arrogant condescension, ignore constituent calls, letters and protests. Vilify law abiding gun owners.

Surprise. Hick Abdullah bin Bloomberg’s numbers subsequently crashed and are sinking ever further. No strap-on money bombs from MAIG will change that.

Finally, Mr. Glaze, for a Coloradan you don’t know doggy doo about our Senate. They serve 4 year terms and half are elected during the presidential cycle when the turnout is 2x or 3x the midterm numbers. Our constitution sets the recall signature threshold at 25% of the votes cast in the last election for the district. The recall of Hudak, who was elected in 2012 requires 18.7K signatures. The recall thresholds for Morse and Giron who were elected in 2010 are significantly lower. In six weeks, and with less than $7K in contributions from friends and relatives, the Hudak recall operation (also a family affair – none of which had ever been involved in a campaign,) collected more signatures – verified against voter registration lists – that the Pueblo recall group.

Hudak remains in office only because the year of her election. Believe it.

Glaze is right when he says a lot more needs to be done. The next step should be to nullify any laws sponsored and passed by the recalled legislators. After all, it wasn’t their personalities that were offensive, it was the way they were going about their jobs. They were ignoring the people whom they served and enacting offensive laws. Lets clean up the entire mess, not just those who caused it.

The reason you lost was because those 2 stupid politicians went against the will of the people. It’s called DEMOCRACY. PS. If you want people to have a fighting chance of not being murdered LET THEM CARRY GUNS!
