Rep. Tom Sullivan (D), who represents Arapahoe County, says he plans to start door knocking in his district this weekend, asking people to decline to sign a recall petition against him.

Sullivan’s original plan had been to talk with constituents about about his legislative accomplishments as well as priorities for next year’s session.

“Now this is going to be a different conversation we’re going to have to have with them because of this recall,” Sullivan said.

Flanked by sheriffs and gun safety advocates, Democratic lawmakers unveiled an extreme risk protection order bill — a measure aimed at reducing gun violence — at a press conference at the state Capitol on Wednesday.

"We're on the clock right now folks," Rep. Tom Sullivan (D), whose son was killed in the Aurora theater shooting, said. "... If we keep talking about it, people are going to keep dying and this is a simple thing to do to save lives."
