They did so over the advice and united objection of the County Sheriffs of Colorado, the association representing the 62 elected Sheriffs in the state. The Sheriffs crafted a five page memo  warning the legislators that the gun control measures they were proposing would be "unenforceable and possibly unconstitutional, while punishing law abiding citizens and doing nothing to reduce violent crime."

    "I think President Obama has overperformed," Flynt says. "He got handed on his platter when he became president more than any president in history ever had to deal with.... I think he's done a marvelous job." In the wide-ranging interview with Salam, Flynt talks about his brief but "profound" religious experience in the 1970s, as well as his views on why pornography is good for society.  "I did have a very profound religious experience," Flynt said. "I sought out a psychiatrist immediately after it happened to me."  "This is largely thought to be because of an iodine deficiency in your diet,"...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A cargo worker at John F. Kennedy Airport is accused of stealing from care packages meant for U.S. troops serving overseas. Investigators said the theft was discovered when the suspect was caught wearing one of the stolen items.

Packages from family, friends and businesses were allegedly targeted. “Parcels were received in Germany and they had been rifled. The Postal Inspection Service was notified and through varying investigative techniques, we...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — San Francisco police have arrested nearly 80 Occupy protesters who had taken over an empty building and apparently planned to stay there long-term. The San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/Hc1ZqA) reports that officers in riot gear stormed the two-story building around 1:15 p.m. Monday after breaking through a barricade the activists had built. Police say no one was injured during the arrests. The building is owned by the Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco and had recently been used as a music education facility. The protesters entered the structure Sunday after holding a rally and march nearby.

    About 12 hours after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,the Red Hot Chili Peppers gave it away, gave it away, gave it away… for Obama campaign volunteers at Cleveland’s House of Blues. As Cleveland’s Plain Dealer writes,the band performed a special 45-minute concert for 1,200 liberal-minded music lovers. Tickets were free, provided a would-be concert-goer had worked in an Obama phone bank. A video montage of Obama speeches paved the way for Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith, and Josh Klinghoffer’s set. In between hits like “Under the Bridge” and “Can’t Stop,” Kiedis urged the audience to...

    The hypocrisy of opponents of school choice schemes has never been a big secret. But rarely has that quality been so brazenly exhibited as by Vincent Giordano, the head of the New Jersey Education Association, in a recent interview on New Jersey public television. When asked why he opposes giving poor parents the same opportunity to take their kids out of failing public schools and into successful private or religious institutions the wealthy have, the teachers union boss, who makes more than half a million in salary and other compensation, replied: "Life's not always fair." Giordano, who has been a major antagonist of New...
