Colorado recall election is a referendum on guns
Mark Z. BarabakCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — After 30 minutes of praise to God and several rollicking, hand-clapping hymns, John Morse stepped to the glass pulpit and offered a prayer of his own.
"We need you to reach down deep," Morse, the state Senate president, told about 100 worshipers seated Sunday beneath a vaulted ceiling at Grace Be Unto You Outreach Church. "I need you not to just support me," he said, slowing down to emphasize each word. "I need you to vote no."
Last winter, Morse helped push through the Legislature a sweeping package of gun laws in response to the December massacre at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School. Included was a limit on ammunition clips like one used in the July 2012 theater shootings in the Denver suburb of Aurora. State Sen. Angela Giron, a fellow Democrat, was among those who supported the package.
