Colorado Recall Energizes Connecticut Gun-Control Foes

Postby hayes1966 » Sat Sep 14, 2013 5:46 pm

HARTFORD — Connecticut has no provision to recall elected officials, unlike Colorado, where two prominent backers of gun control were just booted from the legislature.

But gun-rights groups here say they will push aggressively to oust state lawmakers who worked to pass one of the nation's most sweeping gun control laws in the aftermath of the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

"Our recall capabilities are at the ballot box next year,'' said Scott Wilson, president of the Connecticut Citizens Defense League. "We hope to get some of them out of office. ... The key thing is going to be education [of] the gun-owning community."

Connecticut's 200,000 gun-permit holders have the potential to be a powerful political force, said former Connecticut Republican party Chairman Chris Healy. While no single issue can completely decide an election, he said, "in terms of voters enthusiasm, they could be a real asset in changing the make-up of the legislature and maybe even the governor's race.''
