Sometimes the worst possible gift for a liberal is to give him everything he wants. President Obama no doubt feels this after getting his way on Obamacare, which is easily the biggest disaster of his presidency. Colorado Democrats are likewise stinging after they rammed a gun-control scheme through the legislature in March that has the public screaming for their heads. These Democratic lawmakers ought to warn their newly elected colleagues in Virginia against repeating the same mistake.
Colorado state Sen. Evie Hudak resigned Wednesday rather than face the prospect of a recall election brought by opponents of her votes in favor of sweeping gun-control legislation.
Colorado state Sen. Evie Hudak, the latest Democrat to be swept up in the state's recall brushfire, is fighting back with a cash infusion from Washington, D.C.

Second Amendment supporters and activists in Colorado, buoyed by two recent recall wins, have launched another petition drive to oust a third Democrat who voted in favor of the state's much-ballyhooed new gun control laws from office.
Colorado gun-rights advocates, furious about last week's signing of three hotly debated gun control bills, are launching recall drives against at least four Democratic legislators and possibly the governor.
On Tuesday, rape victim Amanda Collins told a horrific story to a Colorado Senate committee considering the repeal of the Colorado law that allows concealed carry on college campuses. Ms. Collins was raped at her Nevada college that banned concealed carry. Although she had a legal permit, she was assaulted because she had obeyed the law and left her firearm at home. While she obeyed the Nevada legislature’s no-guns-allowed policy, her rapist did not. He held a gun to her head as she was viciously attacked, as are 20 percent to 25 percent of college women who suffer rape or attempted rape, according to the CDC. Her rapist went on to rape two other women, and he murdered his third victim.
"Though it is difficult to step aside," Mrs. Hudak said in her resignation letter, "I have faith that my colleagues will honor the legacy my constituents and I have built."
