    Now we need to see what action the newly elected senators will take regarding the anti-gun laws.

    'I'm Going to Cut You Off Right There': CNN Anchor Calls Out Ousted Colorado Democrat for Blaming Recall on 'Voter Suppression'...

    ..."I’ve read reports on lack of popularity on your behalf. Let’s just not go there.”

    Sep. 12, 2013 5:00pm Jason Howerton

    Refusing to accept her defeat gracefully, recalled Colorado state Sen. Angela Giron appeared on CNN Thursday to blame her embarrassing ouster on “voter suppression.” Earlier this week, Colorado residents voted to recall Giron and Democratic Senate President John Morse over a number of gun control laws they helped pushed through the Legislature.

    “We know what really happened here. Yes, we had the strong NRA and you have a person like Mr. Head, but what this story is really about, it’s about voter suppression,” Giron said.

    The former state senator claimed that 70 percent of Colorado residents vote by mail, but there was no mail-in voting for the recall election. Surprisingly, she was quickly called out by a CNN anchor.

    “OK, forgive me, but I’m going to cut you off right there. Because if we talk voter suppression, I’ve read reports on lack of popularity on your behalf. Let’s just not go there,” CNN’s Brooke Baldwin said.

    Being reprimanded by the CNN anchor left Giron looking like this:

    Baldwin went on to remind Giron that she and Morse were backed by “mega, mega cash” from Michael Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns compared to the “grassroots effort” to recall the lawmakers over a number of unpopular gun control laws.

    “The Colorado recall battle drew more than $3.5 million in campaign contributions. But the bulk of it – nearly $3 million – came from opponents of the recall drive who support stricter gun control, figures from the secretary of state’s office showed,” Reuters reports. Bloomberg personally donated $350,000 to a group fighting the recall.

    On the flip-side, the National Rifle Associated donated $368,000 to support the recall effort, which pulled in only $500,000 total from the pro-gun lobby.

    “What happened?” Baldwin asked.

    Giron, visibly flustered, replied: “I’m telling you what happened is that you had, um, only, um, 30,000 of the voters, who in the last election, off-year election, was 45,000. So the people that are, um, in support of very common sense, um, gun legislation weren’t able to get to the polls. They vote by ballot and they have been doing that for 25 years. We have to call it for what it is.”



    The Democrat then sought to downplay the fact that her recall was clearly based on her support of gun control measures. She claimed that the voters she talked to didn’t believe that universal background checks and limiting magazine capacity to 15 rounds infringe on the Second Amendment.

    “People didn’t know what it was about. There was voter confusion,” she added. “We didn’t even know what the rules of the game were.”

    In reality, voters, including many Democrats, were angered by the new limits on ammunition magazines and expanded background checks. Gun-rights activists were able to file enough voter signatures for the recall elections – the first for state legislators since Colorado adopted the procedure in 1912. The recalls were seen as a serious indicator in the national debate over gun rights.

    As TheBlaze previously reported, the recall election was reportedly started by six “regular guys” who were fed-up with lawmakers ramming gun control laws down the throats of voters and ignoring the Second Amendment.
