Former Obama campaign manager Jim Messina, who is now running the president’s permanent campaign arm, “Organizing for America,” says the gun control fight is not over.

Max Baucus (D-MT), voted against the new gun control proposals recently. Messina responded, “As you know, Max is like my father and he and I can disagree on a couple things.”

Meanwhile, in Colorado, 55 of 62 sheriff’s are banding together to block new gun control laws passed by the state legislature.
The Blaze.com has this, including an interview with the El Paso County Sheriff which can be found below.
In the wake of the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado passed some of the strictest gun control measures in the country.
But in recent months, an overwhelming 55 of the state’s 62 county sheriffs have joined a lawsuit aiming to block the measures.
“These bills do absolutely nothing to make Colorado a safer place to live, to work, to play or to raise a family,” Weld County Sheriff John Cooke explained at a recent press conference. “Instead these misguided, unconstitutional bills will have the opposite effect because they greatly restrict the right of decent, law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, their families and their homes.”
