Anti-Gun Colorado Senators Out

In Colorado, gun rights activists are celebrating the unprecedented recall of two democratic state senators who got replaced this week for backing some of the nation's strictest gun laws. CNN's George Howell reports.

John Morse, former Colorado state senate president said, "What we did is the right thing. And I said months ago if this costs me my political career, that is a very small price to pay."

Conservative political commentators Ben Ferguson weighed in on the issue on "New Day."

Ferguson reminded viewers that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg infused the original election with his own money to help the anti-gun candidates to victory.

Ferguson said, "I think in the end, this had everything to do with politics and a lot of people that may not have gone to the polls to vote to recall these people or vote in this election normally showed up. I think a lot of it was because they felt like there was too much outside influence in this election."
