In an exercise of natural and legal rights, citizens of two Colorado districts voted to recall two liberal Democrats, according to the Denver Post. They were recalled for their votes on the various laws that restricted gun rights in Colorado.
The state director of Americans for Prosperity, Dustin Zvonek, declared: "Coloradans ... sent a clear message that politicians who blatantly ignore their constituents will be held accountable." Such sentiments echo an age-old belief since at least the Reformation of the 1500s that citizens must protect their rights.
The initiator of the recalls, Tim Knight, rejoiced, saying, "Tonight is a victory for the people of the state of Colorado…"
The particular laws that were being protested against through this recall varied in strength and severity of restricting gun rights. As such, men in good conscience could disagree if all or some of them were sufficient to enact a recall.
What is more important is that this is further evidence of many legal avenues Americans, and Christians in particular, still have to retain their rights. Given the upswing in legal harassment against Christians this is good news indeed.
