    BAILEY, Colo.- The search for a mountain lion continues after it attacked an 8-year-old boy in Bailey Wednesday night. Colorado Parks and Wildlife says the child was playing on a trampoline in his yard when he heard a friend calling from down the street. As he ran towards his friend's home, the mountain lion pounced, grabbing the boy by the head. The boy's brother was also outside and heard a commotion. He ran to his father and told him something didn't sound right. His father rushed down the street and found the mountain lion on top of his son. The...

    WELD COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – Inspired by the movie “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri,” Lindasue Smollen of Boulder put up her own billboard messages after passage of the “Red Flag Bill.” “Sheriff Reams up there decided he will not enforce it, and he has decided on his own it’s unconstitutional,” Smollen told CBS4’s Rick Sallinger. The six billboards read in part, “More Americans have died of gun violence since 1970… than in all wars in American history.” “It’s really about education. This is not political. This is not a democratic issue, it’s not a republican issue, it’s a human rights...

    A weather whiplash is predicted to hit people in the Rockies and Plains this week, as conditions go from balmy to blizzard overnight. The high is predicted to be around 80 degrees in Denver and other cities Tuesday — but within 24 hours, blizzard conditions are forecast, the National Weather Service says. "Warm today. Snow tomorrow," says the NWS office in Denver and Boulder, Colo., predicting temperatures that could hit record highs Tuesday — followed by rain turning to snow, in a blast of cold air that will ride winds of 40-60 mph on Wednesday. For many central U.S. residents,...

    Washington Times ^ | 3JAN19 | By Valerie Richardson
    BOULDER, Colorado — Boulder’s newly enacted “assault weapons” ban is meeting with stiff resistance from its “gun-toting hippies,” staunch liberals who also happen to be devoted firearms owners. Only 342 “assault weapons,” or semiautomatic rifles, were certified by Boulder police before the Dec. 31 deadline, meaning there could be thousands of residents in the scenic university town of 107,000 in violation of the sweeping gun-control ordinance.

    It’s not the intolerance of progressives that is so insulting. It is the denial of their intolerance that is so abusive.~~~~SNIP~~~~Because I own a long gun with a pistol grip and a detachable magazine, I had to the end of December to self-identify to the police, present myself for investigation and my gun for inspection, pay fees in order to receive a police-issued permission slip, all to avoid jail time, monetary penalties, and the confiscation and destruction of my gun.~~~~SNIP~~~~For publicly stating that I will not comply, my daughter has been targeted at her Boulder school, the one with posters...

    Unconstitutional: Whenever we see the Left moving to implement a new rule or law governing the use, handling, or ownership of firearms we are reminded of the very simple language of the Second Amendment, which reads in full: A well-regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Liberal and conservative scholars and lawmakers have debated the meaning of “militia” and whether or not the founders meant that the Second Amendment applied only to organized state military forces. But others have noted that based...

    Residents of Boulder, Co., have until December 27 to “certify” their “assault weapons” or remove the firearms from city limits. Those who fail to comply could face fines, jail time, and confiscation and destruction of their firearms, according to the Denver Post. Boulder police say they have certified 85 firearms since the city council passed an “assault weapons” ban in May. Residents who already owned prohibited rifles, pistols, and shotguns were given the chance to keep their firearms by certifying prior ownership with police. The council also voted unanimously to ban “high-capacity” magazines and bump stocks. “My hope is that...

    A woman has carved a career out of spooning strangers to help her deal with empty nest syndrome. Kassandra Brown, 44, from Boulder, Colorado, charges $100 (£77) per session and earns up to $26,000 (£20,000) a year from her favourite pastime. She says she realised how important human touch is to a person's development after becoming a mother for the first time, and wanted to find a way to practice it 'all day every day'. After finding Cuddlist, a professional cuddling company, in 2016, Kassandra began giving multiple 90-minute sessions almost daily.

    Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders spoke in Boulder on Wednesday and bashed the rich. The Democratic socialist was so embarrassing the crowd occasionally responded with nervous and underwhelming applause. If one thing is clear about multi-millionaire Sanders, it is his professed disdain for the rich. He has money and his friends have money, yet all the other rich are evil. Sanders came to Colorado to stump all day for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis, who is among the wealthiest men in the country. “Today in America, as all of you know, we have a corrupt campaign system which allows billionaires to...

    Colorado and Wyoming residents woke up Sunday to find that an early season snowstorm had blanketed their homes and roadways with up to a foot (30 centimeters) of snow and sent temperatures plunging overnight. The storm caused crashes, snarled traffic and temporarily closed some major highways due to icy conditions. The heaviest snow fell in an area stretching from Boulder, Colorado, through Wyoming to Montana’s Beartooth Mountains. The National Weather Service reported snowfall measuring between 3 and 13 inches (8 to 33 centimeters) south of Sheridan, Wyoming, over the last 24 hours. About 3 inches (8 centimeters) of snow fell...

    On May 15, 2018, the Boulder, Colorado, city government passed a gun and magazine ban unanimously. The ban is likely illegal. It was immediately challenged in a lawsuit. On 19 June, 2018, the Boulder city government doubled down on the ban, adding more restrictions, and an exemption for competitive shooters who travel through the city. From the Five amendments were proposed. On an 8-1 vote, council passed three: Removing an exemption for 30-round handgun magazines that are legal under Colorado law; allowing competitive shooters to travel through Boulder with assault weapons; and clarifying the language so that any...

    Colorado wildlife officials have growing concerns that a yearling female elk raised from a calf by a woman west of Boulder, seen as a cute curiosity by some, is a cautionary tale that could end badly. In fact, Colorado Parks and Wildlife staff have raised the possibility that the animal could need to be put down, should its interactions with humans take a bad turn. Some call the elk Marie, and others know her as Maybelle. But along Cougar Drive near Walker Ranch, it seems everyone knows the animal, which they say was raised by a woman who has since...

    Well, this is no shocker. Bolstered by the Supreme Court’s inaction on answering the question concerning the constitutionality of assault weapons bans, slices of Blue America have taken it to its limits—and by limits I mean passing ordinances that are totally unconstitutional. In Deerfield, Illinois, the village has banned the ownership of AR-15 rifles and other firearms liberals find scary. Yet, it goes beyond that, because the definition of an assault weapon (yes, I know not a real term) is so broad. Essentially any firearm that uses a detachable magazine that holds more than ten rounds is a so-called assault...

    A group of Boulder residents filed a lawsuit Wednesday challenging the City Council’s Wednesday move to ban the possession of commonly owned semi-automatic firearms. The residents, represented by the Mountain States Legal Foundation, face steep financial penalties and jail time for the possession of firearms that are presently legal throughout the state of Colorado and the United States. They filed the lawsuit in federal district court in Denver, Colorado. A similar ordinance recently passed in Deerfield Illinois, a suburb of Chicago.

    Despite angry protests and the threat of a looming lawsuit, the city of Boulder, Colorado, took a bold stand for gun control this week. Its city council unanimously passed an ordinance on Tuesday to ban the sale and possession of assault weapons, bump stocks and high-capacity magazines — becoming one of a handful of cities nationwide that has taken action to change its gun laws in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting massacre.

    The Boulder City Council unanimously passed a sweeping gun control ordinance Tuesday night banning "assault weapons" and bump stocks, even as a pro-Second Amendment group threatened to retaliate by suing individual councilmembers. In a surprising turn, one Colorado councilwoman admitted that she disagreed with the ordinance "in many ways," saying it would invite a flood of litigation -- despite voting for it.

    By a unanimous vote Tuesday evening, Boulder, Colorado’s City Council advanced a ban on the sale and possession of America’s favorite rifle, the AR-15. They also voted to ban bump fire stocks, standard capacity magazines and similar sporting rifles as well. With a third vote, the ban will take effect for residents as well as visitors to Boulder. Of course, the rule-making exempts law enforcement and military users. As for the little people, The Berkeley of the Rockies’ Mayor Suzanne Jones said, “I think, by and large, we’re focused on a type of weapon to keep it out of civilian...

    Well, it was not a good day for the stock market and it wasn’t a good day for gun rights. A federal judge decided to uphold a law that already strengthened the state’s ban on so-called assault weapons. The judge went on the whole weapons of war tangent in his opinion (via Bloomberg) Massachusetts’ beefed-up ban on assault weapons doesn’t violate the Second Amendment of the Constitution, a U.S. judge ruled, handing a victory to gun-control advocates seeking to pass such a law nationwide following a spate of deadly mass shootings."The AR-15 and its analogs, along with large capacity magazines,...
