(USA TODAY) Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper offered an awkward apology and some colorful language to some of his fiercest rivals on the issue of gun control: Colorado’s sheriffs.
The governor’s mea culpa came Friday when he spoke before an assembled group of sheriffs from around Colorado.
The governor apologized to the sheriffs for not meeting with them prior to the passage of gun control bills they opposed. Hickenlooper also said his administration didn’t do a good job anticipating pushback on gun control, and he pledged better communication in the future.
