Colorado: Hickenlooper is Too Little, Too Late

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Last Friday, June 13, Governor John Hickenlooper (D) spoke to a gathering of Colorado sheriffs in Aspen during the bi-annual County Sheriffs of Colorado Conference.

During this conference, Hickenlooper admitted that he and his office failed to meet with the sheriffs when they showed up en masse at the state Capitol in Denver and also admitted that he and his office failed to do their homework on the impact and importance of background check legislation that now unnecessarily affects hundreds of thousands of law-abiding citizens across the Centennial State.

Hickenlooper stated that “[t]here were a thousand things going on and other issues we were dealing with, I guess I didn’t get it.”  Hickenlooper went on to say that by the time he was aware of the criticism against the background check legislation, he had already signed it.

This seems not only unfortunate but also highly unlikely.  Thousands of freedom-loving supporters of the Second Amendment showed up to express opposition to this bill and others like it.  Individuals across the state made their presence and opposition known on a daily basis throughout the 2013 legislative session.

When pressed with further questions by the sheriffs, Hickenlooper interrupted the audience by saying “What more apology do you want? What the f---? I apologize!”  Hickenlooper, along with the other anti-gun extremists in Denver who voted in favor of passing the most egregious anti-gun legislation in Colorado history, continue to show just how out of touch they are with the state and the people who live here.

This failed attempt at redemption with the sheriffs by Hickenlooper is just one more example of why focusing on the polls this November is so critically important.  The outcome of this fall’s elections will directly impact what happens during the legislative session next year.
