    Obviously ousting someone is the biggest win. However, I don't think you absolutely need to recall them to have a positive effect on other politicians. Forcing the other side into a recall where one has to spend time and money sends a bit of a message. If it is even close at all in a district that is generally a "safe district" (which it sounds like this may be) that sends a pretty good message too. I agree a resignation in the face of a recall would still be a might coup for the gun rights cause and for influencing other pirple state/district politicians. Of course a successful recall sends the loudest and clearest message. One thing to consider is recalls tend to have low voter turnout. This allows a well organized group that is more passionate about the issues leading to the recall to have a lot more influence than it might in a general election.

    The first two recalls were HUGE wins for gun owners, even (perhaps particularly) those outside of CO.

    The biggest cure is not to vote for these Democrats.

    Please give to this recall.

    Remember remember the 10th of September.

    Recall her, she helped screw good citizens out of their 2nd amendment rights. Send a message to the politicians in Colorado: NO gun control!

    By the way, has hickenlooper demanded an investigation about the reasons the CU psychiatrist didn't do anything when the joker told her he was thinking about shooting people and sent her drawings of himself shooting people? No? Easier to cover that up and to instead sign gun control laws that do nothing other than screw lawful and lucid citizens?

    Sometimes that can be easier said then done. It largely depends on the voter make-up of the district, and which side cares enough to get out and vote. Our side is fired up, but the size and strength on the other side should be taken into consideration. If this does go to a vote both sides will have to expend resources that might otherwise be used in next year's general election. The results that come out of that - all across the whole country - will be far more important then any recall election.

    Hope this is OK with the moderators...

    HOW TO DONATE:

    I got ahold of them directly to get "horse's mouth" information.

    1. Out-of-state donations are OK.

    2. Their preferred method is through their website at

    http://www.recallhudaktoo.org/

    There is a donation option under the "Contact" tab on the opening banner right under the flag and Capitol dome image.

    3. I am not on Facebook, but they said there is a way to do this on their FB page.

    4. Personal checks may be mailed to them at

    Recall Hudak Too
    11651 West 64th Ave, Suite E1
    Arvada, CO 80004

    However, you should include the following information with your check.

    Name
    Address
    Phone Number
    Occupation
    Employer

    This folderol is necessary because they expect to be tightly audited under the campaign finance laws, and they want to make sure all the Ts are dotted and the Is are crossed.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Terry, 230RN

    Have you vetted them as the most legitimate recall effort?

    Strolled in there on Friday, gave them the $15 I had on me and signed (I'm in Hudak's district). Going to have three more people sign by the end of the week.

    See if each of those 3 will find 3 more each and you'll have started your own cascade of opposition for grabbers. :D

    Is there a magazine capacity limit in Colorado?

    I notice when ordering things, including parts kits, there are restrictions on shipping to CO.

    Yes, Co JUST passed a 15 round magazine limit this year, which is one of the laws that have inspired these recall efforts

    Thank you for posting this information. I saw the new story and knew where to come for more information. A simple 'two clicks' of the mouse and they now have my financial support as well.

    It is time for every law abiding citizen-gun owner to stand and deliver. Please support this important effort to restore second amendment rights to our brothers in Colorado.

    This is important- support with you heart, actions, voice and wallet...

    This is correct. If ALL the information is not given, our accountant will forward the donation to the Boy Scouts of America. The opposition is not playing games and we have to account for every dime. The Boy Scouts is a worthy cause, however, if that is where you want your $$$ to go, there are easier ways to go about it.
    Thank you

    Did anyone catch the CO governor's statement basically saying Mayors Against Illegal Guns should stay out of things this time? :)

    Why would it matter where the money comes from?

    Somehow the thought of you giving my name, address, phone # and company I work for to a bunch of anti-gunners is a bit of a deterrent. Wish you all luck in getting her out though, keep up the good fight.

    The regulation of political contributions require it. Pretty sure it also has to be disclosed publicly, how else would we have known just how much MAIG and Bloomberg contributed in the last round.

    I agree, however under campaign finance laws, we have no choice in the matter.

    Believe me, Ryanxia, that was a hurdle for me when they wanted to put all that information down on the little envelope they stuck my check in.

    I'm sure others are/were concerned about it as well.

    But some things are more important than worrying about stuff like that, and I'm one of those people who are pretty circumspect about giving out my ID at all, let alone in gun-related matters.

    Cast it to the Deities and forget about that minor problem.

    There are some things ya just gotta do.

    A big thank you to all who are helping in whatever fashion, be it circulating petitions, making phone calls, signing, donating $$$ or other things, publicity.....
    Last weekend at a sign & drive a lady who signed the petition came back about an hour later with muffins and fruit for the voluteers. Greatly appreciated.
    God Bless

    Keep donating guys.

    Obviously some of you have never donated to such a cause. Yes you must disclose. I mean most of us want Bloompoop and Co to disclose......trust me, .gov knows you are pro-Constitution already.

    If they can pull off three recalls, I may actually start believing in this grassroots stuff, and other miracles.

    Bingo!

    Allowing fretting to keep you from supporting RKBA over what might be done with information given to it is throwing the baby out with the bathwater. The greater good is supporting the RKBA effort. Don't let some vague fear of some vague misuse of that information you're required to include with your support make you an unintentional ally of the antis.

    They know who we are guys and gals, we must stand up tall and proud and fight, or we will surely lose.

    I'm not working right now, but I'm thinking I should sell something just to fund a donation.
    I admit that this is also motivated by the video I watched the other day of Hudak verbally attacking a rape victim during a CO Senate hearing. She deserves to be unemployed.

    Edited to add:

    I am selling a brand new Mec-Gar Sig P226 18 round 9mm magazine and I'll donate the money to the movement to recall Evie Hudak. I'll comply with all applicable rules and include my actual contact information to ensure that the money gets in the fight. I'm not working right now, but I bought this magazine as a hedge during the panic. I don't even own a P226 right now, so I guess I won't miss it and it's the only way I can afford to donate to this worthy cause.
    This is me participating in this activism... and as our friend Walkalong puts it, standing tall.

    http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?p=9166038#post9166038

    Maybe some of you have some accessories you could also list up and donate the money (or just make a donation) to join me?

    FWIW, I have never even set foot in CO, but this is a worthy cause.
