  • Are There AR-15-Owning Democrats Defying Boulder Assault Weapons Ban?

    Last year, after the tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Boulder, Colorado decided to ban AR-15 rifles. Current residents who owned these firearms were subject to a grandfather clause. They also had until July 18, 2018 to get rid of, or sell, so-called high-capacity magazines and bump stocks. Those who were grandfathered in had until December 27, 2018 to certify their rifles with the local sheriff’s department. There is no paper trail. No records are kept, but it sure sounds like a test run for a gun registry. Only 342 people have certified their rifles. You know there...

    The GoFundMe campaign that generated $20 million in private donations is being shutdown and those who donated are being refunded their money unless they decide to donate it to a newly-established 501(c)4. Brian Kolfage, the veteran who started the campaign, on Friday posted the following message on the campaign's website: Eight days before Christmas I started this GoFundMe campaign because I was tired of watching the U.S. government’s inability to secure our southern border. Like most Americans, I see the porous southern border as a national security threat and I refuse to allow our broken political system to leave my family...

Lee had reportedly told her friend that a man wanted her to kill the mother of his child. It’s unclear what Lee’s relationship with the man was. Joe and Patty...

    A controversial new law in California, the first of its kind in the U.S., requires publicly traded companies headquartered in the state to include at least one woman on their board of directors by the end of 2019. But are quotas are the best way to bring women’s voices to the table? Legislators in New Jersey have already indicated they think so. Garden State lawmaker Nancy Pinkin (D-NJ) proposed a bill that would require women on state-based corporate boards. The measure has been sent to its first committee for hearing. Colorado, Illinois, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania have also moved the needle...

    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. ***** Semiautomatic pistols and shotguns are also included. Current owners were given until the end of the year to choose one of two options: Get rid of their semiautomatics by moving them out of...

    LITTLETON, Colo. — Pedro Gonzalez has faith in Donald Trump and his party. The 55-year-old Colombian immigrant is a pastor at an evangelical church in suburban Denver. Initially repelled by Trump in 2016, he’s been heartened by the president’s steps to protect religious groups and appoint judges who oppose abortion rights. More important, Gonzalez sees Trump’s presidency as part of a divine plan. “It doesn’t matter what I think,” Gonzalez said of the president. “He was put there.” Though Latino voters are a key part of the Democratic coalition, there is a larger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than many...

    A Ninth District judge indicated disappointment that a Rifle woman accused of yelling at two Spanish-speaking women in a racially charged rant at a Rifle grocery story will not have to enter a plea. Garfield County Judge Jonathan Potosky said at a hearing in the case Wednesday he would have liked to see Linda Dwire, who was charged with misdemeanor racial-motivated harassment enter a guilty plea of some kind of condition of having her case diverted. The charge results from an incident at the Rifle City Market in October — part of which was caught on video by a bystander...

Daniel. He also advised Mr....

    The Senate is expected to vote Tuesday on an amendment that would federally legalize marijuana by allowing states to regulate their own medical and recreational pot markets. But even one senator can block a vote on the amendment, which would address a longstanding conflict between federal and state law. Sen. Cory Gardner, D-Colo., is seeking to attach the measure to the First Step Act, a bundle of prison, prisoner re-entry, and sentencing reforms that senators voted 81-12 to advance Monday.

    COLORADO SPRINGS — A Colorado Springs woman is seen smiling big after she was arrested for allegedly laying on school property with Samurai swords and knives, according to the Colorado Springs Police Department. Jillian Haddon, 29, was arrested in connection to the incident on the Vanguard School campus on Friday morning. Although there were no specific threats, police said that school administrators reported a woman laying along an exterior wall on school property with two large Samurai swords and knives on and near her. Because she didn’t have any “legitimate business” to be on campus, police arrested her without incident....
