Colo gov says time to talk gun laws

DENVER — Colorado´s Gov. John Hickenlooper said "the time is right" for state lawmakers to consider gun control measures, offering his firmest stance in the aftermath of several high-profile shootings, including a movie theater rampage in suburban Denver, that have shocked the nation. The Democratic governor upset some in his party for not taking a stronger position when he said last summer that stricter laws would not haven´t prevented the mass shooting in Aurora. (Snip) "When you look at what happened in Aurora, a great deal of that damage was from the large magazine on the AR-15 (rifle). ...

Comments:
Here they go again. Hick complains that he´s "too moderate". I say he´s a failed governor, period. And he repeats the myth (lie) about the AR in the theater shooting. The rifle jammed. THAT would have been a prime opportunity for a CCW permit holder to end the threat. But no...

There is no longer any need. All the potential psychotic killers in Colorado are now stoned out of their minds and no longer pose a threat.

Actually, all of the damage was done by an evil coward who decided to end the lives of innocent people who thought they were safe in a building that didn´t allow self defense weapons. Fooled them, didn´t he!!!

This from a man who hired an illegal in his brew pub. The illegal shot and killed a police officer who was hired for security at a Christening in Denver.

The killer escaped to Mexico and was only returned to the USA with the promise of no death penalty and no life in prison.

Hickenlooper is a typical lib liar.

How about banning all violence in movies and on television? If we are going to attack the Bill of Rights, let´s get to the heart of the violence problem! As for older movies that have violence in them, let´s have a big bonfire. There, I´ve solved the problem.

What could we expect from a blue state where the majority have shown poor judgement on the national as well as local level. Half of them are probably stoned when they vote.

This is what happens when you allow immigration from liberal states. Having fouled their own nests, they seek new pastures. Colorado was a decent state when I was a kid. Bad things happen to good states with the advent of liberalisn.

Actually the damage was done by the "nut" who squeezed the trigger, if he had a less then 10 round magazine, maybe the weapon would not have jammed, with him quickly reloading and doing more damage then he actually did. What government at all levels should be looking for is how to keep "nuts" from beating the government background check process and purchasing guns in the first place.

Hickenlooper won´t do squat. He knows gun control in Colorado is political suicide. We won´t put up with it. He´ll get steamrollered out of office.

In inverse order, two points:

1. OK, Gov. Loopy, there are some 24,000 gun laws in the US, but guns are still used illegally in crimes of all descriptions. So, what are the magic words of your new gun law that will stop the criminally violent? Hey, did I just notice a problem the guv missed?

2. Shall not be infringed -- every one of those words has a clear, simple meaning that hasn´t changed in hundreds of years. And neither has the 2nd Amendment, and what it recognizes to be above even the Constitution itself, that is, the inalienable right to effective self-defense.

#12: Or make assault, battery, and murder illegal. Seems more on-point than going roundabout via gun laws.

If you´re going to talk about gun control, Governor, you should at least try to learn a little something about guns. You could start by learning what an "assaiult weapon" really is, not what Dem-lefty know-nothings apply the term to. You might also learn the difference between the rifle (which isn´t designed to penetrate ANYTHING) and the cartridge. But I´m not gonna hold my breath waiting for you to do that.

I thought it was already against the law to kill someone with a gun, or otherwise, unless there is a perfectly good reason to do it. Like Mr. Foster, for example.

A friend of mine teaches high school a few miles from columbine. He wishes he could keep a gun locked in his desk. Of course that would never fly. However, he has taken note of everything in his room that could be used as a weapon and has added a few incospicious ones of his own.

Dictatorship, Police state moving along quite nicely now. Once the Obama gang gets the guns he can just order the wrong type of people to the train stations for Deportation. Maybe Jamie Foxx, Spike Lee, Al Sharpton, The new Black Panthers and like minded folks can get a government job deciding who goes to the Showers first. I wish I was kidding.

I´ve had enough of Governor Juan ChickenPooper. Will these libnut fools ever learn that criminals are the problem.

By ChickenPooper´s logic, we should ban or limit the destructive capacity of automobiles.

By ChickenPooper´s logic, we should outlaw booze which would eliminate drunk driving.

By ChickenPooper´s logic, we should eliminate democrats and save the country.

Anger is brewing among service members and veterans groups after the publication of a New York Times op-ed that tries to link veterans and white supremacists. The piece came just days after a 73-year-old white supremacist and veteran, Frazier Glenn Miller, was arrested in an attack that killed three people at a Jewish center in Overland Park, Kansas. In the column, op-ed contributor Kathleen Belew writes: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nine-page report detailing the threat of domestic terrorism by the white power movement. This short document outlined no specific threats, but rather a set of

Maryland health officials are investigating possible cases of food poisoning at what may be the worst-ever venue — a gathering of government and industry leaders attending a national Food Safety Summit. At least four people called the Baltimore City Health Department this week to report that they developed diarrhea, nausea and other symptoms about 12 hours after eating a meal April 9 during the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. That was midway through the annual meeting held April 8 to 10 that attracted more than 1,500 food safety professionals, including staff from federal agencies as well as businesses such

Russia and Ukraine struck a deal Thursday to end unrest in eastern Ukraine stoked by pro-Russian militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said. The militants must refrain from violence, lay down their illegal weapons and return seized buildings to their rightful owners, Kerry said. In return, Ukraine agreed to offer amnesty to protesters who had not committed capital crimes. Kerry called the agreement “a good day’s work,” but warned that the United States would impose further sanctions on Russia if it didn’t see progress soon. “None of us leave here with the sense that the job is done because the

DENVER — Authorities say a Wyoming college student who jumped to his death from a Denver hotel balcony ate more than the recommended serving of a marijuana cookie. Police reports released Thursday said 19-year-old Levy Thamba Pongi consumed a little more than one cookie that his friend purchased from a pot shop. The reports say a clerk told his friends to cut it into six pieces and eat one piece at a time. The friends did so, but it´s unclear from the reports whether Pongi heard the advice.

Banana Republicans: New Head Of
Virginia GOP on Eric Cantor’s Payroll
PJ Media, by David Steinberg    Original Article
Posted By: BaseballFan- 4/15/2014 3:11:20 PM     Post Reply
On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

Nahshon Shelton didn’t want to pay the 22-cent tax on his $1.79 two-liter of Pepsi on Saturday afternoon, Chicago police said. So he allegedly pulled a blue-steel Intratec .22-caliber semi-automatic handgun out of his Gucci satchel inside the convenience store in the 4000 block of West Madison Street where they tried to make him pay it -- and he threatened to kill everyone there, a prosecutor said. This "is my neighborhood, I’m tax exempt!" he would later allegedly tell the cops, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. “Man, you know what, I’ll keep it real. I had to put them in their

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
