Expanded background checks for firearm sales in Colorado were passed by Democrats last year at great political cost. Now Republicans are offering up a bill to repeal the law, reigniting the debate over gun control during an election year.
Two Republicans were sworn in Thursday to replace ousted Democratic state Sens. Angela Giron and John Morse, capping Colorado's history-making recall elections and signaling a shift in the state's political direction.
The Pueblo County Republican Party is offering firearms foes an opportunity to promote their gun-free status.
"Pueblo is a proud city composed of proud people from all different walks of life, and, while it might be hard for a New York billionaire to comprehend, we do in fact have roads and running water," said Mr. Rivera in a statement. "I promise the people of Pueblo I will never sit idly by as outsiders insult our outstanding community."
"Michael Bloomberg is absolutely out of touch with the values of Pueblo," said Republican state Sen. George Rivera of Pueblo. "In Pueblo, we value our Second Amendment rights and we don't appreciate East Coast elites stereotyping us as some area so remote that we don't even have roads."
