2nd Colo. lawmaker could face recall over guns

State Senator Giron responds to recall petitions turned in

DENVER -  A second Colorado Democrat who is facing possible recall over gun control says she wouldn't change her votes and has no plans to resign.

Sen. Angela Giron of Pueblo says she'll fight for her seat and that most constituents support the measures she backed. Giron oversees the Senate committee that first approved a measure to require background checks on most private and online gun sales.
Giron also voted for a new law to limit most ammunition magazines to 15 rounds. Those votes were cited by gun-rights activists who turned in some 13,500 signatures in Monday to see Giron in a recall election a year before her term is up.
Democrats could keep Giron's seat if she resigns and they appoint an interim replacement. But Giron says she'll stay and fight for her job in a heavily Democratic district.
