    Default Co Governor on Gun Control

    Well either he's a flat out liar, a spineless coward, or both

    Colorado governor tries to apologize for gun control measures, blames staff, then curses

    WASHINGTON – Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s awkward attempt to patch things up with his state’s sheriffs over his support of controversial gun control legislation isn’t going as planned.

    The governor, a Democrat, offered a series of unusual explanations during a meeting he held last Friday with a group of Colorado sheriffs for why he signed legislation that restricts the sale of ammunition magazines of more than 15 rounds.

    First, Hickenlooper blamed his staff for not anticipating the opposition on gun control. He then apologized for his staff’s inability to effectively communicate and promised to do better in the future.

    When Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith pressed the issue, Hickenlooper snapped back, “What the f---? I apologized!”

    He apparently was kidding around, as the sheriffs could be heard laughing. But on his Facebook page, Smith said he was surprised by the governor’s choice of words.

    “I’m a big boy and I won’t pretend for a moment that it’s not language that’s foreign to me – but I found that type of attitude and response to be well below the dignity of the office of governor,” Smith wrote. “This was a sitting governor, in a public meeting, responding to another elected official.”

    Hickenlooper also said he felt pressure to sign the bill into law because a member of his staff “made a commitment.”

    “To be honest, no one in our office thought it would get through the legislature,” he said. “There were several Democrats who said without question they weren’t going to vote for it.”

    The measure passed the Democrat-controlled legislature. No Republicans voted for it.

    I have to agree with your opinion and say BOTH. Either he believes in his convictions or nothing he says after that has meaning, or is believable.

    It is nothing more than standard political damage control. He screwed up big time and is trying to cover his tracks and blame advisors for the backlash.

    He is like the fearless leader. He speaks out of the wrong side of his mouth. In the movie it is called the side step dance.

    Think you're wrong Back. This trash doesn't care how much they screw-up because they know there's enough trash registered as voters it doesn't matter.
    A MEMBER OF HIS STAFF MADE A COMMITMENT?...When your 'staff' does a dumbass thing, YOU SMACK THE STAFF IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD. NOT PIG-PHUQUE THE CITIZENS.
    Back in '69 or '70 DODD D-Conn wrote a letter of apology published in Guns-&-Ammo magazine. (He's the trash that penned the GCA '68 using NaziLaw verbatum) Didn't see him trying to undo that collosal piece of garbage though.

    Kicked out of the country is more like it. Anyone who introduces legislation that goes against the founding principles of this country should be tried for sedition at least, and treason at most, and either hanged, or exiled to a European country of their choosing.
