    Response from Governor Hickenlooper from Colorado

    Typical no actual answer to anything to any of the questions that I asked.....useless.

    Dear Geoff:

    Thank you for writing regarding gun control in Colorado. This is an important
    subject, and we appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts and concerns.

    Throughout the past six months in Colorado and across the nation, we have
    experienced an unprecedented level of tragedy due to gun violence. The shooting that
    occurred in Aurora on the night of July 20th is an event that will remain in our
    hearts and minds forever. And while our lives will never be the same again, these
    experiences showed the strength and resilience of individuals to come together as a
    community. Now, as a community, we must come together to discuss ways we can prevent
    similar tragedies in the future.

    Your letter is one of thousands we have received expressing sympathy and sharing
    your opinions on everything from banning assault weapons, to increasing mental
    health availability, to the rights of citizens to carry concealed weapons. The
    diversity of opinions on how best to address this issue is proof positive that we
    should not shy away from this discussion. We are confident that through thoughtful
    and mindful debate we can find reasonable solutions that respect the rights of
    law-abiding Coloradans to own firearms while maintaining the health and safety of
    our communities.

    This is a multifaceted issue and part of this dialogue should focus on mental health
    access. So, we have asked the Colorado General Assembly to support a comprehensive
    overhaul of our state’s mental health system so we can better identify and help
    people who are a threat to themselves and others.

    This is a conversation that will continue throughout the course of this legislative
    session, so we also encourage you to share your thoughts with your legislators. To
    contact the House of Representatives, please call 303-866-2904. To contact the
    Senate, please call 303-866-2316. These contacts will direct your call to the
    appropriate office. Or, you can find your legislators online at
    Colorado Webmaps


    Once again, thank you for your input, and for taking the time to contact our office.
    We will keep your thoughts in mind as we move forward.

    Sincerely,


    Office of Governor John W. Hickenlooper

    We need to keep the pressure on them! Be ready to write again and again as this legislative session progresses. We'll probably need to.
