A Colorado recall election has been called against the state’s Democratic Colorado Senate President, John Morse. This effort could result in an unprecedented situation if Morse is successfully removed from office. More than that though, the recall election could become ground zero for an ongoing debate across the nation regarding gun control. The push to recall the Colorado Democrat comes from ire following new restrictions passed and recently enacted in the Southwestern state. According to LA Times, this includes a high-capacity magazine ban, universal background checks within the state, and an increase in gun fees.
Critics seeking to depose State Senator John Morse believe the new registration violates their constitutional rights. They argue that Morse and other gun control supporters in Colorado have acted against their democratic wishes.
Whether this is true or not will be proven when the Colorado recall election is most likely held in late August.
The Denver Post reports that Colorado Republicans will most likely choose former Colorado Springs City Councilman Bernie Herpin to run against Morse for the El Paso county seat.
