    Colorado is working hard to reform its antiquated knife bans.  In the late 1950's and early 1960's, a wave of bans on knives swept the nation. The were propelled by emotional tirades of a New York Congressman, and fueled by allegations of widespread use by gangs, in spite of a lack of data. There was no wave of knife violence. But the fake media of the day was able to sweep bans on “gravity” and “switchblade” knives through legislatures across the country.  A federal ban in the interstate shipping of automatic knives was enacted into law in 1958, and...

    Rich Wyatt, the star of American Guns, a once-popular Discovery Channel program that showcased him, his telegenic family, including wife Renee and kids Paige and Kurt, and his business, Wheat Ridge's Gunsmoke Guns, has been found guilty of conspiring to deal firearms without a license and multiple tax charges. The verdict completes the fall of a once-prominent TV personality who rubbed shoulders with celebrities such as rock star Ted Nugent and even a former President of the United States, George W. Bush.

    Mark Plaskett.  Image from krdo.com It was before dawn on Sunday morning , 27 November, 2016, in Fountain, Colorado. Mark Plaskett was wakened by his garage door opening. It was 5 a.m. He grabbed his pistol and a flashlight and responded. Three strange cars were parked in the quiet, residential neighborhood. Plaskett believes that he had forgotten to lock his van.  That is likely how they accessed his garage door opener. As Plaskett entered the street with flashlight and pistol, one of the cars immediately took off.  Plaskett attempted to capture people in the second car, but both the...

    I've left the GOP and registered again as Independent voter. I voted Trump at the top of the ballot and voted Libertarian down the ballot in protest at the Republican Party's sabotage of our nominee and collusion to elect Hillary. Voted NO on major propositions, tax increases and to kick out all incumbent judges. Was a great feeling and a good early vote here this afternoon for me in my rural Colorado county.

    I often open carry, especially in the summer when the temperatures make concealed carry a bit more cumbersome.  I was open carrying at this Yuma, Arizona gas station when a man approached me. He asked if Arizona were an open carry state.  I said that it was, and went on to explain that most states were.  He said he was from Colorado, where open carry was forbidden in some cities.  Yes, I said, the Colorado Supreme Court had made a weird decision that Denver could ignore state law.  He said the city of Aurora also prohibited open carry in...

    Billionaire anti-fracking activist Tom Steyer has dramatically increased his political donations in four key legislative races in Colorado in an effort to push the state away from fossil fuels, according to federal and state campaign finance records. Steyer made three $200 personal contributions to Democrats in crucial state Senate races. Democratic senatorial candidates Rachel Zenzinger, Jenise May, and Daniel Kagan were the recipients of Steyer’s largesse. May and Kagan are running for open seats, while Zenzinger is trying to unseat an incumbent Republican. Big money donors like Steyer can contribute a maximum of $200 in Colorado to state House or...

    Darryl Glenn, a tea party favorite, on Tuesday secured the Republican nomination for Senate in Colorado, one of the only places where the GOP thought it had a real chance to pick up a seat in 2016. But as the El Paso County commissioner makes his first run for statewide office – a challenging feat for even the most seasoned and well-financed politician in a purple state like Colorado – it is not clear that the Republican establishment is willing to give him a hand against Democratic incumbent Sen. Michael Bennet. Senate Republican leaders instead appear to be focusing the...

    A plan to return Colorado to a presidential preference primary has cleared its first hurdle at the state Legislature. A House committee voted 5-4 Monday to set up a primary vote for 2020. Unaffiliated voters could choose to vote in a party's primary as long as they indicate a preference, which would then be scrubbed after the vote. That falls short of a truly open primary, in which voters could cast ballots in whichever party they choose, without indicating a party preference. Colorado has more unaffiliated voters than voters registered with either party. Legislative analysts have said a primary vote...

    Imagine, if you will, that your house is on fire. The conflagration has spread from the kitchen downstairs to engulf the hallway outside your bedroom upstairs. So you remain in your room, with a window open and a damp cloth over your mouth, under your bed. As you lay there terrified, eyes and throat burning from noxious fumes, a fireman bursts through the door. He sees you under the bed, a look of frenzied hope in your eyes that help has finally arrived. The fireman walks over to the window, shuts it, and then exits the room closing the door...

A Magellan poll released today shows that in a head to head match up, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would beat his opponent Ted Cruz in Colorado. Here are the numbers when voting on the current ballot: 44% – Trump 34% – Cruz 17% – Kasich 5% – undecided If voters were asked to choose between Cruz and Trump, the result is little changed: 48% – Trump 42% – Cruz According to the poll, Trump’s top...

    Cruz's resounding win in Colorado's GOP contest this weekend provided fresh evidence that Trump's campaign is still scrambling to catch up in the delegate hunt. But the Trump campaign's threat that they might challenge the Colorado results at the Republican National Convention showed something else: Their campaign is gearing up for battle in Cleveland -- and no error will go unnoticed. The debate over the national delegate selection in Colorado this weekend qualified as the very definition of inside baseball.............

    While Donald Trump continues to lead in delegate count, this week has not been his in terms of momentum. The GOP frontrunner was handed a resounding defeat in Wisconsin, where rival Ted Cruz beat him 48.2% to 35.1%. Now all eyes have turned to New York, the next primary in the nominating contest, with 95 delegates at stake — where Trump currently enjoys a commanding 56% to 22% lead over Cruz in the latest poll. But even before the New York primary in a couple weeks, Trump may be precluded from reaching the required 1,237 delegates before the Republican National...

    Supreme Court rejects suit against Colorado over marijuana law The Supreme Court on Monday threw out a lawsuit filed by the states of Nebraska and Oklahoma against their neighbor Colorado over a law approved as a ballot initiative by Colorado voters in 2012 that allows the recreational use of marijuana. The court declined to hear the case filed by Nebraska and Oklahoma, which said that marijuana is being smuggled across their borders and noted that federal law still prohibits the drug. Two conservative justices, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito, said they would have heard the case. Nebraska and Oklahoma contended...
