Gun Rights Group Offers Pistol, Ammo To Colorado Recall Volunteers

Gun rights advocates in Colorado are taking an innovative approach in their quest to take down Colorado Senate President John Morse (D), who, as a term-limited lame duck, pushed a number of gun-control measures through the state legislature this year.

Volunteers working with the Basic Freedom Defense Fund and El Paso County Freedom Defense Fund to recall Morse, can win gun-themed prizes, including a 30-round ammunition magazine, gift cards and a 9 mm pistol.

Volunteers need to collect 7,178 valid signatures to get the recall on the ballot, according to The Gazette.  A spokesman for the effort told the paper that they have already surpassed that required number.

Morse was elected in 2010 and his term expires in 2014.
