The national battle over guns is headed to the states in a major way.
Already groups supporting more gun restrictions have been active on the local level. And now for the first time in almost two decades, the National Rifle Association is attempting to coordinate the recall of a top state legislator for having successfully passed further gun restrictions in his state, CNN has learned.
The focus of the NRA campaign is Colorado State Senate President John Morse. He is facing a petition drive to initiate an election to recall him because of legislation passed earlier this year requiring “universal” background checks on sales of all firearms in the state, as well as a ban on the sale of ammunition magazines greater than 15 rounds.
Morse told CNN he knew he was being targeted by local gun groups, but at the beginning did not know the NRA was after him.
"It was a grassroots effort for a little while, but when that didn't take at all, it was clear they were getting money from outside, and I wasn't the least bit surprised the NRA was behind it," said Morse.
The NRA declined an invitation to appear on "The Lead."
One flashpoint at Friday’s House hearing on IRS targeting of conservative political groups seeking tax-exempt status occurred between acting agency chief Steven Miller and Republican Rep. Paul Ryan.
The Wisconsin Republican and former vice presidential nominee was frustrated that Miller, who was briefed on the controversial IRS practices last May, failed to mention it in subsequent letters to Congress and in hearing testimony just two months later.
"How can we not conclude that you did not mislead this committee?" Ryan asked Miller at Friday's Ways and Means Committee hearing.
This week, celebrities are the most riveting sight on the Riviera, and they are bejeweled by the biggest baubles. All that bling turned out to be an irresistible target for thieves, as actors and actresses at the Cannes film festival discovered last night, when under cover of darkness, those diamonds disappeared
A jewelry heist on the French Riviera? Sounds just like the plot of Hitchcock's 1955 classic "To Catch A Thief." But the jewelry company Chopard says the thief is no Cary Grant, managing to make off with less than $1 million worth of jewelry - small potatoes when you're talking diamonds in 2013.
"An employee of the Chopard house has been a victim of a robbery last night," Chopard spokeswoman Raffaella Rossiello. "There is currently a police investigation underway."
Friday's hearing was only the beginning of congressional scrutiny over the IRS' actions, targeting conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.
Next week, the head of the department that approves tax exempt status, Lois Lerner, will testify before the House Oversight Committee. It appears she knew about the targeting almost from the beginning in 2010. But who else knew?

Google is going gangbusters, recently unveiling new products like a music streaming service and a revamp of its e-commerce technology "Google Wallet." Apple, the tech giant that once led the pack, suddenly finds itself accused of losing its innovative edge. Wall Street's love affair with Apple has cooled, its stock is down 40% from last year's high.
But there is no question that Apple still dominates, said The Street's Rocco Pendola.
"I've spent more money on Apple products than I have on my wife and my kid," said Pendola.
Now the IRS knows what it's like to be on the business end of an audit. It was a withering appearance Friday before the House Ways and Means committee by Steven Miller, who walked the plank this week as soon-to-be-former acting director of the IRS.
