COLORADO CITIZENS SEEK TO NULLIFY UNCONSTITUTIONAL GUN CONTROL LAWS

The nullification movement is sweeping across the nation and people are fighting for their Constitutional rights. Nowhere is this truer than in Colorado. After the controversial redistricting led to Democrats taking over both the State House and Senate in November 2012, an extreme liberal agenda was pushed at unprecedented speeds.
This included gun control, with laws such as universal background checks, which Ted Cruz has called a “pathway to a national gun registry.” In addition, concealed carry training must now be done face-to-face rather than online, and anyone who has even been accused of domestic violence or is under a restraining order is now banned from using guns, whether guilty or not.
Unable to affect the outcome of traditional legislative battles, conservatives and liberty activists statewide started to look to alternative solutions. While Weld County spearheaded a surprisingly popular initiative to split from Colorado, the first two recall elections in the state’s history were organized against Democrat Senators John Morse and Angela Giron.
