"She has infringed upon our constitutional right to keep and bear arms. She has voted to make all citizens less safe and to drive hundreds of jobs from Colorado," read an excerpt of the petition language e-mailed to the Post by the group's spokesman Mike McAlpine.

Colorado state Senate President John Morse (D) and state Sen. Angela Giron (D) were both recalled in September after similar efforts targeted them for their support of stricter gun control laws. An initial effort by gun rights advocates to recall Hudak was suspended in May.

"A small group is seeking to undo the will of voters, who re-elected me to the Senate last November," Hudak said in a statement, as quoted by the Post. "Unable to defeat me then, they are now attempting a political power grab using a low-voter-turnout, no-mail-ballot recall election strategy."
