Centennial State has some of the most draconian anti-2nd Amendment laws in the nation.
November 27, 2013
Colorado Democrat state Senator Evie Hudak’s constituents are hopping mad about her stance on the Second Amendment.
On Wednesday, the embattled politico threw in the towel ahead of a recall effort in the state.
“By resigning I am protecting these important new laws for the good of Colorado and ensuring that we can continue looking forward,” Hudak wrote in her resignation letter.
The resignation comes as a surprise. Political observers in Colorado believed Hudak would survive a recall effort by Second Amendment advocates and their supporters.
Hudak and Democrats in the state passed laws requiring background checks on all firearms sales, the outlawing of magazines capable of taking more than 15 rounds, and a ban on so-called assault weapons within Denver, the state capital.
Two other Democrat legislators, Sens. John Morse of Colorado Springs and Angela Giron of Pueblo, were thrown out of office earlier this year in response to their efforts to undermine the Second Amendment.
In March, Hudak took heat for callous comments she directed at a rape victim who testified against a bill to ban concealed-carry firearms. Faced with outrage from the public and bad PR for her insensitive comments, the senator later attempted to backtrack. Hudak said she “didn’t mean to be insensitive” in the exchange with Amanda Collins.
The Colorado Senate passed the law banning concealed-carry on college campuses.
