Colorado Gov. John W. Hickenlooper has positioned himself as a problem-solver who steers clear of extremes, but sitting on his desk are three gun control bills that threaten to redefine his image and even his political future.
U.S. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Tuesday that federal guidance on new laws legalizing marijuana in Colorado and Washington state is imminent as state officials have been forced to tread cautiously in their efforts to implement the laws.
There's a showdown in the Colorado Republican gubernatorial primary coming Monday at high noon.
In January, however, Mr. Hickenlooper said "the time is right" to consider gun control restrictions such as universal background checks.
A month later, he said in a Facebook post that he would sign most of the gun control bills, including HB 1224.
