    So, he tries to pull back some voters by saying he was unsure about a piece of legislation but signed it anyways? That's the type of leadership folks want!

    It appears what little he said,he has to figure out which side of the fence he is on.No one should have to put up with the B.S.The people there deserve better.

    I know it's normal with politics but when asked a simple question and you don't get an answer,that usually means,get out your hip boots.

    Good! The people of CO scared some politicians! They realized there are consequences to their actions.

    I realize he didn't say much,but insulting people's intelligence,not a smart move either,especially as upset as a lot are now,for a good reason.

    Hopefully other politicians will wake up,maybe.

    The bummer got re-elected doing just that very thing. The governor probably figures it'll work for him too!

    His cushy seat and gravy train is under fire, for cause. Time for him to be an adult citizen, again. Cope.

    Screwing over the Constitution is what got them all in trouble, this time around. And it'll be what gets them in permanent hot water, should they dare continue doing so.

    Time for every single liberty-hating tyrant to recognize the People won't tolerate outright tyranny. No matter what it costs them, costs be damned. Though, one thing I'd like to see every single legislature put into place, even at the U.S. Constitution level, is an outright statement of crimes against the constitution with clear "teeth" in the law to punish violators in the most extreme manner possible. Lacking that, I fear we'll always have these creeping tyrants whose ceaseless attack on the rule of law because of their power trips keeps chipping away at the foundations of what we stand for as a people.

    2014 shall show him the door.

    The 2A measures were just ONE of the MANY reasons his ratings are low.

    He has many problems, and 2A is one of them.
