    Received this email from the NSSF:

    The National Shooting Sports Foundation today issued the following statement after the successful recall elections on Tuesday of State Senate President John Morse and State Sen. Angela Giron:

    When legislators fail to represent the beliefs of their constituents, it is up to the voters to fire them. And this is exactly what happened Tuesday in the Colorado Springs district of John Morse and the Pueblo district of Angela Giron. Sens. Morse and Giron chose to forget about their constituents. Instead, Sen. Morse led the hasty effort that led to the passage of a series of highly restricted gun control laws that will do nothing to improve public safety but that did reflect the wishes of national anti-gun organizations, including the one led by New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Sen. Giron was a key vote in this ill-considered effort.

    On behalf of our members, we congratulate the grassroots effort of the Coloradans who stood up for their Second Amendment rights against a well-financed effort that poured a massive amount of money into the effort to save these seats. Congratulations, too, to Bernie Herpin and George Rivera, who now join the Colorado State Senate and whom we are certain will work diligently to represent the will of their constituents, not forgetting all those who worked so hard to put them in office.

    INDUSTRY FOE ELLIOT SPITZER DEFEATED IN NYC PRIMARY . . . Former New York Governor Elliot Spitzer, who resigned from office in disgrace after being caught in a prostitution scandal, on Tuesday, lost his Democratic primary come-back bid to become New York City comptroller. Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer won the primary. As New York Attorney General, Spitzer in 2000 unsuccessfully filed suit against several firearms manufacturers and wholesalers seeking to blame them for crimes. He also unsuccessfully conspired with others including the HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo to illegally boycott industry members unless they capitulated to an infeasible antigun “code of conduct” that would have regulated designs, marketing and distribution practices. That suit was dismissed in 2001 and the dismissal upheld on appeal in 2003. Spitzer's illegal industry boycott collapsed after NSSF and industry members sued him in 2000.
