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.
Gov. John Hickenlooper signed bills Wednesday that place new restrictions on firearms and signaled a change for Democrats who traditionally shied away from gun control debate in Colorado — a state with a moderate streak and pioneer tradition of gun ownership and self-reliance.
The only thing separating Coloradans from a ban on purchases of ammunition magazines with more than 15 rounds is the signature of Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper.
The Colorado House approved four gun-control bills Monday after lobbying by the White House and in spite of warnings that they would drive firearms and ammunition manufacturers out of the state.
