Hours Before Connecticut Shooting, Colorado Governor Urged Consideration Of More Gun Control

Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-CO), hours before the tragedy in Connecticut, told the Associated Press that “the time is right” for the legislature to consider more gun control in Colorado. The comments came several months after the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, left 12 dead and at least 58 injured. Hickenlooper said, “I wanted to have at least a couple of months off after the shooting in Aurora to let people process and grieve and get a little space, but … I think, now … the time is right.”
