The two democratic state senators lost their seats to thier republican challengers.

 

Kevin Starrett with the Oregon Firearms Federation says this sends an important message to lawmakers about enacting aggressive gun control measures.

 

"And I think the other important message and one that I'm really excited about, is grass root efforts.  They had no affiliated big groups or a lot of money, just a couple people with a lot of passion that got out there."

 

Don Thomas with the Central Oregon Shooting Sports Association says this is a big victory.

 

"The people have spoken in Colorado and they don't want anyone ramming gun control legislation down their throats or magazine capacity or any other gun control measure. These are two democratic people and Mayor Bloomberg put money in to help them win and the people have spoken."

 

Both sides campaigned aggressively in Colorado.  There was a lot of money from New York Mayor and gun control advocate Michael Bloomberg and from the National Rifle Association.

 

The Colorado lawmakers who were recalled had voted for  gun control legisaltion that would require background checks for private gun sales and limit ammunition magazines to 15 rounds.
