Because, despite the influx of Californians, Colorado still respects gun rights. From the NY Times:
Two Colorado Democrats who provided crucial support for a slate of tough new gun-control laws were voted out of office on Tuesday in a recall vote widely seen as a test of popular support for gun restrictions after mass shootings in a Colorado movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school.

The election, which came five months after the United States Senate defeated several gun restrictions, handed another loss to gun-control supporters. It also gave moderate lawmakers across the country a warning about the political risks of voting for tougher gun laws.
Surprising candor from the liberal, Gray Lady.
BTW, thanks to outside money, those favoring the recall were outspent 6-to-1 by opponents, but they still won. A big loss yesterday for NYC Mayor Michael Blowhard. Gosh, I’m in tears.
So, that’s the good news. The bad: The draconian gun control laws still remain in effect. Time for those there (in Colorado) who still believe in the Bill of Rights to get busy trying to repeal the recently enacted restrictions.
