Zing! Gov. Hickenlooper says he’s not ‘an anti-gun person’; Colo. rep: ‘Some of your best friends are gun persons’?

On Thursday, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper told a group of high school students, “I’m not in any way an anti-gun person.”

GOP state rep Chris Holbert responded Saturday with a pitch-perfect zinger: “What’s next? ‘Some of your best friends are gun persons’?”

Hickenlooper has promised to sign the Colorado gun-grab bills into law. GOP state Sen. Greg Brophy asked Twitter followers how many Pinocchios that one deserved.

Answer: All the Pinocchios!

    Politicians crack me up sometimes. They firmly believe that words speak louder than their actions.

    Then again, many low-info voters believe that, too, otherwise they wouldn’t be continually voted into office.

    This world is looking more upside-down by the day (hour).

    His Mama must not have taught him that lying is as bad as stealing

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Hickenlooper is not an anti-stupid person either. Apparently.

      You could make a fortune selling personal fire extinguishers to them. Or at least an “app”…

    In other news, Jay Carney said, “Gov. HIckenlooper is a regular guest at Camp David. The President has been giving him skeet shooting lessons.”

    • no_limit_neckbeard

      I doubt Obammy shoots skeet. If his aim is as bad as his golf game, he has no business giving shooting lessons. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

      The WH is banking a lot on getting state support for gun banning and confiscation because they know a fed. law is prob. not in the offing. The Dems. have poured millions into CO to turn it blue and intend to do the same to TX and GA. Reps., you better get your guns out.

    Gov. Hickenlooper should get pinocchios equal to the national debt.

    In other news, Obama said, “I am not in any way anti-business”.

    Meanwhile Colorado lowered college tuition for illegal immigrants.

      Well screw them, to get my american birth certificate(I was born in Canada), it took 6 months of paper work and general BS. I really have no sympathy for illegal immigrants, none.

      • mdtljt

        Thank you, Raye09, for doing it the right way!!! Damn glad to have you here!!!

    Governor Hickenlooper, I am not in any way an “anti-big government” person.
    The difference being, I’m truthful.

    “I did NOT have sexual relations with that woman”, “I am NOT a crook”, “I was born in Hawaii”. “My Twitter account was hacked”, “I am a native American of the Cherokee Tribe”, “I am NOT in any way an anti-gun person”. Don’t y’all just love politicians??

  • GaryTheBrave

    If Hickenlooper lied down his Pinocchio nose would be a mile high.

    That’s right up there with the Mental MIdget’s statement that billionaires fly into NYC on their private jets and take private limo’s to NYC’s homeless shelters to demand a room for the night.

  • no_limit_neckbeard

    Hickenlooper is lying through his teeth. You don’t get elected the mayor of San Fran East (aka Denver) without being a flaming, drooling, hard-left moonbat.

    Hickenlooper is another North Eastern sympathizer infiltrating middle America to secrete their mental derangement. This guy is a member of Mayors against Illegal Guns with Mumbles Menino and Mikey Bloomberg. You probably aren’t an anti-gun person, John, you’re just another fascist who believe guns should only be in the hands of those deemed appropriate by the almighty state. i.e. those who protect you.

      It’s people from blue states tired of the way they’ve trashed their home state moving to the West and trying to do the same thing. These are the putzes that vote guys like him into office.

        Yep….libs are worse than locusts.
