The following story is from the NRA-ILA.
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.
So, he is admitting he IGNORED, deliberately, anyone that disagreed with this idiotic bill. He also admits that he and his team on what was in the bill he signed? Basically, he just admitted that he is unfit for high office.
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.
Oh but it gets better, as the governor proves how arrogant and disconnected he really is.
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!”
In other words, how dare you peasants bother me just because I signed a terrible bill that violates the Constitution against the will of the people I am supposed to serve. Please Coloradans throw this pathetic hack out of office.
