Aurora shooting victim’s father taking Hickenlooper’s gun control comments in stride
DENVER -- Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, who spent much of the last year trying to move past 2013's divisive fight over tougher gun laws, has brought the issue back to the fore by trying to appease the sheriffs who are suing him to overturn the laws. "It's what he always does and it's a quality that has often served him well, trying to work both sides, to please everyone," said political analyst Eric Sondermann Thursday. "But when there's no middle ground, trying to find that middle ground just ends up alienating people on both sides."
