As we reported today, Senate President John Morse is one of a number of state representatives who are being targeted for recall due largely to their support of the new gun laws.

Morse, a Democrat, represents the central part of Colorado Springs, as well as Manitou Springs. And the recall effort is being led locally by the El Paso Freedom Defense Committee, an issue committee registered with the Secretary of State's Office.

The Democrats are putting up a fight.

On Sunday, at 2 p.m., supporters of Morse's will be gathering at Pikes Peak Library District's Penrose Library, 20 N. Cascade Ave.

From the Facebook event page for "A Whole Lot of People for John Morse," also a state-registered issue committee:

You may be aware that a recall effort against has been mounted against our Senator Morse. The reasons behind this effort is primarily because of his votes on the recent gun control measures. They are now targeting him for his support civil unions and the Asset bill. Recalls are supposed to be used against elected officials who have violated the law not because of their voting record.
