So assume you're the governor of a State in the most prestigious nation in the world, and you want to push Gun Control upon an unwilling populace ....
... would YOU be smokin' and jokin' with the sheriffs who are (reluctantly) charged with enforcing anti-constitutional laws on your constituents?
Of course not! These guys carry guns and aren't afraid to use them.
But this clue-challenged hodad is dancing as fast as he can:
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper’s awkward attempt to patch things up with his state’s sheriffs over his support of controversial gun control legislation isn’t going as planned. The governor, a Democrat, offered a series of unusual explanations during a meeting he held last Friday with a group of Colorado sheriffs for why he signed legislation that restricts the sale of ammunition magazines of more than 15 rounds. First, Hickenlooper blamed his staff for not anticipating the opposition on gun control. He then apologized for his staff’s inability to effectively communicate and promised to do better in the future. When Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith pressed the issue, Hickenlooper snapped back, “What the f---? I apologized!” He apparently was kidding around, as the sheriffs could be heard laughing. But on his Facebook page, Smith said he was surprised by the governor’s choice of words ...Considering that a couple of his most ardent supporters have been canned by these same constituents for SUPPORTING this bill, a reasonable
But then, the bear probably wouldn't be a Liberal Democrat.

PS: Any executive who blames his staff (extra-credit test: Who Hired Them?) for discontinuities in policy has already served notice that he is not only incompetent, but a raving lunitic who MUST be driven out of office "Most Rikki-Tikki!"
I know you're tired of firing Politicians, Colorado, but it's time to serve the coup d'gras on this imbicile.
