The problem with the current process is that last year's crop of statists in the Legislature behaved as if Colorado was a "democracy" and trampled the rights of what was perceived a minority, gun owners. The statists soon discovered that we do live in a republic, with the recall and removal of two of the worst offenders of rights. A republic indeed -- not a democracy with tyrannical rule of the majority over the minority. It seems that if you're a politician these days, it would obviously pay to listen to all of the citizens, all of the time, be they a perceived majority or a minority, Bloomberg not withstanding.
