Hickenlooper joins NY Gov. Cuomo in calling for action:
Nearly six months after a mass shooting in a Colorado movie theater stirred cries for action on gun violence and mental illness, and with last month’s killings at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School still fresh in people’s minds, Gov. John W. Hickenlooper of Colorado called Thursday for universal background checks on all gun sales in the state.
“We can learn from tragedy and make changes,” Mr. Hickenlooper, a Democrat, said in his annual State of the State address at the gold-domed Capitol here.
