What’s the “biggest win for the Second Amendment this year?”

According to gun rights advocate and author Emily Miller, it’s the success of the Colorado recall.

In an in-depth interview with The Daily Caller, Miller highlighted the fact that the Colorado recall of members of a statewide office — the first time it has happened in the state’s history — was not instigated by the NRA or the Colorado Republican party.

The NRA did, later, become involved as a horde of progressives, including millionaire anti gun advocate and Mayor of New York Michael Bloomberg, began funding the campaigns of pro-gun control state senators John Morse and Angela Giron.

“This wasn’t by the NRA,” Miller said. “This wasn’t by the Colorado Republican party. They all helped in the end, because they had to because Bloomberg spent so much money. This was totally organic democracy at work. People just were outraged.”
