Charlotte, NC –-(Ammoland.com)-  It’s not because John Hickenlooper doesn’t support their cause, mind you, but that their presence has backfired in a big way in Colorado.

The governor tells USA Today’s Susan Page that it might be a good idea for Michael Bloomberg and his allies to stay out of Colorado:

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper suggests national gun-control groups stay away from a looming recall battle that could switch control of the state Senate to the GOP. The groups poured money into an unsuccessful defense of two state lawmakers recalled over their gun votes earlier this year.

“Colorado is a state that people like to be themselves and solve their own problems,” the Democratic governor said in an interview with Capital Download, USA TODAY’s weekly video newsmaker series. “They don’t really like outside organizations meddling in their affairs, and maybe the NRA gets a pass on that.

“But (it is) probably not a bad idea” for gun-control groups, such as the one established by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, to curb their efforts if gun-rights activists collect enough signatures to force a recall vote on state Sen. Evie Hudak, a two-term Democrat from a suburban district north of Denver, he said.

    Next thing the Gov will tell us he will not take our guns, just like Obama promised everyone.

    Fact is, POTUS or GOV will not do anything, they will let the local police and state police take the guns.

    As a Colorado resident I will tell you don’t believe it, it is a false flag. Anti-Constitution money is welcome this is just a jive smokescreen by Hick. The out of state money is coming in to protect the next recall target and it is welcome. Also Hick (Hickenlooper)is being looked at for a possible V.P. shot with the democrats for his actions on the various anti-Constitution laws he signed. And, due to the nearly dozen new anti-Constitution laws recently passed in California, including one regarding mental health of people and gun ownership you can bet these will become the… Read more »

    Hickenlooper is up for re-election next year. He thought the lefties that moved in from California and got into office would applaud him for gun control. Instead the native Coloradans got P****d off and threw 2 out with #3 on the way out the door.

    The guy misread his electorate and showed his true colors. Bye bye Hickenlooper. Maybe Bloomie has a job for you?

    Well, if there is a recall option for lawmakers, in CO, why not one for Governors. Sounds like his candle has about burned out, too.

    This idiot governor thought Bloombrain and his cronies were fine until two of his pet legislators were recalled. Now another one of his pets are on the block and he is worried. I can’t believe he was elected governor anyway considering what a failure he was as a mayor. I guess it proves the people of Colorado has gone brain dead.
