If you’ve been following my Twitter feed all night, you already know the news: Here in my adopted hometown of Colorado Springs, freedom-loving citizens have successfully recalled state Sen. president John Morse — who spearheaded the legislative push for extreme gun control laws backed by outgoing NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg, Vice President Joe Biden, and out-of-state gun-grabbing lobbyists.

The significance of this historic and unprecedented battle cannot be overstated. As I’ve reported over the past several months, the effort was an astonishing grass-roots effort in which ordinary citizens gathered more than 16,000 signatures for a recall petition in Colorado Springs over a matter of weeks. The role of women (Coloradans Laura Carno, Kelly Maher, Kim Weeks were among the leading lights) in pushing back against false gun-grabbing narratives and smears was invaluable. The birth control fear-mongering failed. The use of social media to organize echoes other successful Tea Party efforts.

The recall election involving another state senator, Angela Giron of Pueblo, is still up in the air. Pueblo County’s ballot-counting was continuing overnight at a snail’s pace and the website crashed due to traffic overload.

But the message has been sent and the bright red line has been drawn. Other Democratic state legislators across the country posing as “moderates” cannot carry water for the Bloomberg conglomerate and think they can escape without electoral consequences.

And Colorado’s “moderate” Democrat Gov. John Hickenlooper better watch out.

Right-thinking voters can’t fix stupid, but they can and will vote it out.

Update: 12:45am Eastern. Giron has now conceded as well. TOTAL RECALL!
