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.
