COLORADO SPRINGS — The Democratic president of Colorado’s Senate, who marshaled support to pass a slate of tough new gun-control laws, conceded defeat on Tuesday in a recall vote widely seen as a test of popular support for gun restrictions after mass shootings in a Colorado movie theater and a Connecticut elementary school.
