    Full Headline ... "Mother of Columbine killer Dylan Klebold gives first TV interview since massacre: 'I had all those illusions that everything was OK'" The mother of one of the Columbine shooters still has trouble calling her son a "killer," nearly 17 years after the bloody high school massacre that left 13 people dead. "There is never a day that goes by where I don't think of the people that Dylan harmed," Sue Klebold told ABC's "20/20 Friday" in her first TV interview since her son's gun rampage. She then explained why she used the delicate term "harmed."

One call said the homeowner, Jim Davis, was threatening to kill other people. In another call someone pretending to be Jim Davis said armed men were outside demanding money.

    Jeb Bush admits that the reason he supported the Denver Broncos over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 was because Peyton Manning donated to his presidential campaign. Wednesday during a town hall event in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Bush claimed, “And Peyton Manning in the NFL I guess is adult in the room, right? So I kind of like that position these days, I never thought I would be the adult in the room.” “Now we just saw the Super Bowl, I know that you all probably, maybe had some leanings to Carolina,” Bush said. “I was for Denver...

    DENVER - A developing winter storm is taking aim at Colorado, and it has the potential to be the biggest snowstorm of the season so far, for Denver. The El Niño weather pattern has delivered storms right into our "sweet spot" a few times since November, but Denver has only officially registered more than 3 inches of snow three times. It will take about 8 inches to take the title. That would beat the 1-day storm total from the middle of December. Denver’s only storms this season to measure more than 3 inches of snow: 7.7" December 15 4" November...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Panthers quarterback Cam Newton suggested for the first time Wednesday that race may play a factor in why he's become a lightning rod for public criticism. "I'm an African-American quarterback that scares people because they haven't seen nothing that they can compare me to," said the 6-foot-5, 245-pound Newton. The No. 1 pick in the 2011 NFL draft out of Auburn, Newton has his share of detractors who either don't like how he plays, his celebrations or his abundance of self-confidence.

    Environmental organizations that offered more than 150,000 comments calling on the U.S. Forest Service to reject an agreement to allow additional mining in the North Fork area said the response demonstrated strong public opposition. More like "stuffing the ballot box," said an industry spokesman who noted that the environmental opposition would undermine a bargain fashioned over five years of talks. The Forest Service proposes reinstating the North Fork coal-mining exception to the Colorado Roadless Rule. The exception would allow Arch Coal to extend the West Elk Mine near Somerset below the roadless area. The roadless exemption would allow construction of...

    Cargill Meat Solutions in Fort Morgan will allow more than 150 Muslim employees to reapply for their positions following a mass termination in December. The Wichita-based company let its employees go after a misunderstanding about the company policy on prayer breaks escalated. The Somali Muslim employees are being represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Cargill representatives reviewed the no-call, no-show termination policy which led to the terminations and decided to allow the workers fired in the dispute to reapply for their jobs after a 30-day period, rather than the company policy of 180 days.

But his “common sense” policies – made law under the force of executive order – and his crocodile tears for exploited victims of gun violence are not going to shift pubic opinion. There is clearly...

The workers complied with the supervisor's request and went in smaller groups to pray. But after their shift ended, 10 of the 11 workers resigned, turning in their badges and hard hats, Cargill spokesman Michael Martin told CNN.

"When you have two distinct statements in one week, both centered in Colorado -- I think you start to make that awareness," said Colorado Republican Party Chairman, Steve House.... Both threats happened on Thursday. Police arrested a Fountain woman for a call she made to a Denver Planned Parenthood. In the call she reportedly said, "It is tempting to walk into a Rrepublican party meeting with her dead husband's gun and just start shooting people."

    Pro-life leaders are used to being accused of hate speech by Planned Parenthood, Hillary Clinton, and campus feminist activists. But they were surprised to hear Dr. Ben Carson seem to agree that they spewed "hateful" and "immature" rhetoric on Sunday. When CBS moderator John Dickerson asked Dr. Carson whether Planned Parenthood was right that pro-life rhetoric had led to Friday's shooting inside a Colorado Springs abortion facility, the doctor readily agreed. There is "no question the hateful rhetoric exacerbates the situation," Carson said on "Face the Nation." Pro-life advocates quickly rebuffed the notion that they had pushed 57-year-old Robert Lewis...

    Ted Cruz cited this research when he said most violent criminals are Democrats. Now the researchers say he’s wrong. In the wake of last week’s shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday claimed that the “overwhelming majority of violent criminals are Democrats.” When asked for evidence, the senator’s campaign cited a paper we published in 2014, in which we present data on the party affiliation of ex-felons in three states. The paper Cruz cited is one in a series of papers in which we have combined public records – from departments of...

    Loring Wirbel, board member of the American Civil Liberties Union's Colorado chapter and co-chair of the ACLU's Colorado Springs chapter, called for supporters of GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump to be shot before they vote for the billionaire businessman. Comparing Trump to Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels, Wirbel wrote in his Facebook page: The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, "This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day." They're not going to listen to...

    Liberals are taking their war on leading Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to a new level-beyond calls to assassinate Trump-with a call to shoot his supporters before they can vote for him! "The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, "This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before election day." They're not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there's always force, as Laurie would say.' Loring Wirbel, a board member of the...

    In a post to his public page on Facebook, Loring Wirbel, a board member of the Colorado ACLU and co-chair of the Colorado Springs chapter, justified shooting anyone who supports the idea that Donald Trump should be elected president. "Not too long ago Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush was asked if he would be willing to travel back in time and kill Hitler in his crib," Wirbel recalled. "Gov. Bush quite sensibly said yes. Well, Donald Trump is our era's Hitler and we wouldn't have to travel back in time to take the action necessary to prevent him from ushering...

    Police in Colorado Springs, Colorado have decided against investigating a board member of the state's American Civil Liberties Union after a post appeared on his Facebook page about shooting supporters of Donald Trump's presidential campaign. "There is not an investigation underway as the contents of the threat do not address a specific individual who could be considered a victim," Lt. Mark Comte of the Colorado Springs Police Department said in an email to The Daily Caller. As The Daily Caller reported, the Facebook page of a man named Loring Wirbel, the co-chair of the ACLU's Colorado Springs chapter, recently included...

    Armstrong and Kopel: Hickenlooper's shots at law-abiding gun owners don't help In the immediate aftermath of the criminal attack on the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs, public officials should be helping the community come together to heal and supporting the survivors and the victims’ families. Instead, Gov. Hickenlooper has used the occasion for a mean-spirited verbal assault on innocent people. Hickenlooper told CNN: “In Colorado Springs — it’s one of the more conservative parts of the state — we probably have more people that have licenses for concealed weapons, probably more guns around. That didn’t help.” Hickenlooper’s gratuitous insults...
