DENVER, Colo. (AP) - Attorneys for a second Democratic senator potentially facing a recall election are challenging the effort.

In a filing Tuesday, they argue petitioners targeting Sen. Angela Giron failed to expressly call for an election when they collected signatures as the state constitution requires.

Gun rights advocates successfully collected enough signatures in their recall petitions for both Giron and Democratic Senate President John Morse, both of whom voted in favor of stricter firearm laws.

The argument challenging Giron's recall is identical to the one filed on behalf of Morse last week.

A hearing on Morse's challenge is set for Thursday.

New gun laws taking effect Monday expand background checks to online and private sales and limit ammunition magazine sizes.
