    I am ecstatic over this and I don't even live in CO.

    This is awesome. FINALLY, 2A is given a stronger voice that cannot be ignored by Feinstein, Bloomberg, and their crew.

    Now that they've been removed, they should be charged with crimes of enemies of the state. They failed to uphold their oaths to support and defend the constitution. But this removal is a terrific step!

    EARTHQUAKE: Both Colorado Democratic State Senators Recalled!
    I went to bed convinced Second Amendment advocates and their allies had fought to a split decision in Colorado. In the early returns, it appeared that the issue of gun rights, while powerful, could hit a wall in districts where the demographics insulate a Democrat from discontent among her gun-owning constituents.

    Nope:

    An epic national debate over gun rights in Colorado on Tuesday saw two Democratic state senators ousted for their support for stricter laws, a "ready, aim, fired" message intended to stop other politicians for pushing for firearms restrictions. Senate President John Morse and Sen. Angela Giron will be replaced in office with Republican candidates who petitioned onto the recall ballot.

    Party insiders always said Giron's race was the harder one. Although her district is heavily Democratic, Pueblo is a blue-collar union town. Morse's district included Manitou Springs and a portion of Colorado Springs — and more liberals.

    Join National Review in DC


    Our Charlie Cooke, on the ground in Colorado Springs:

    Nevertheless, by the end of the process, so anxious were the opponents of the recall that they felt compelled to rely heavily on Michael Bloomberg, who sent $350,000 to Colorado to fight the threat; members of Obama's ground team were brought in to boost turnout, and even former president Bill Clinton was wheeled in at the last minute to try to tip the scales.

    None of it worked. This was the recall that was never supposed to happen — let alone be successful. The nine men who set the ball rolling weren't supposed to be capable of organizing a town hall, let alone taking down the state-senate president. And yet they did it. Victor Head, a 29-year-old plumber who had never been politically active, took down a senator in a district that went Democratic in 2012 by ten points; a group of six concerned men from the AR15.com chat room removed the state's top-ranking legislator. "We are a quiet people," recall founder Tim Knight told his victorious friends when the results became known at the Stargazers Theater. "You may be tempted to ignore us. Clearly, that would be a mistake."

    I don't live in Colorado but I donated a whole $10 towards the recall campaign.

    Michael Bloomberg donated $350,000 to prevent the recall.

    I win!

    Unfortunately, the laws these nitwits passed are still in place and it's a 15 round mag limit, not 30. However, a lawsuit by 58 Colorado County Sheriffs challenging this law as both unconstitutional and unenforceable is still pending.

    Still, this is a huge victory for Coloradoans who value their freedoms. This is the first time in Colorado history that an elected official has been successfully recalled and we booted out the Senate President, no less!

    We have sent the message to our elected officials that there will be consequences for ignoring the will of their constituents and that not even 'Nanny' Bloomberg can save them.

    What is so great, IMO, is that the PEOPLE won this. Not big money gun ninnies. The media will be too chicken**** to admit that.
