"Since the very reasonable gun law was passed," -- Alma Cremonesi
Nothing reasonable about the universal background check or arbitrary magazine capacity limit laws.
"The law has already stopped over a 100 people with restraining orders and criminal records."
No, it really did not. And had it been as effective as the proponents claimed it would be, that number would be ten times higher.
"Why does anyone need so many rounds in their magazines? "
I tell you what. You sit down and use a scientific approach to come up with a number of rounds a magazine should hold, because every number being used right now is completely arbitrary. Why not 3 or 5, or 7, or 10, or 20, or 25?
"The new Colorado law allows 15; isn't that more than enough? "
Tell me, some guys are breaking into your home at 1 AM. How many rounds will be "enough" to ensure you are able protect you and your family?
"Do you really believe that the Founding Fathers wanted criminals and crazies to have easy access to automatic weapons?"
Automatic weapons have been strictly controlled since 1934. These are not items that you can just walk into a store or show and walk out with the same day. The paperwork alone takes about 9 months to be processed.
"I'm a big movie-goer and I feel safer going to the movies with the new Colorado gun law. "
Then you are an absolute fool! 30 round mags are still perfectly legal to own and the universal background check law is nearly impossible to enforce.
You guys need to head up the pass more often. Woodland Park is the home of Big Dawg Ssndwiches, we are as dog friendly as the health department will let us AND a portion of profits go to local animal rescue groups. The sandwiches are amazing too!
What a great addition to Old Colorado City! Looking forward to the grand opening!!
Lets not forget the staff who work for Viewpoints and Directions. They work everyday with clients helping them to move forward with guidance, professionalism and a big smile letting them know they are important and worth it.
Those staff members deserve a round of applause.
MargRita, Nolan Schriner was the registered agent for N.E.S. until March 11, 2011, according to the Secretary of State filings.
According the the company's website, he is still the owner/founder. Unfortunately, the Secretary of State's website isn't functioning right now, so I couldn't verify if there's been a VERY recent sale.
This establishment is my next door neighbor. My tattoo shop is right next to them. I have never had any problems whatsoever with any of the people that go here. They are quiet, perfect neighbors. I don't consume MJ in any form, but that's my personal choice. I believe others should be able to choose to smoke or ingest MJ in this club. They are doing no harm to anyone whatsoever. Leave them alone! The city would be spending their time and money more wisely were they to help some of the homeless on the streets downtown. These poor people really do need help. K.C Stark is a great neighbor and a cool guy.
That's real arrogance challenging a council member about his community service! Mr. Shriner is the very definition of insubordinate. I don't care how qualified he is, he is not the kind of volunteer council should appoint to a city board. Council already has trouble working with a mayor who walks all over them and appointing this guy to urban renewal only makes it worse. Hopefully council sees through Bach's scheme to get his yes men on city boards. If they appoint this guy it shows how weak council actually is and they are fine with being walked on.
First, a definition of Deus ex Machina: "a god (aka savior) introduced by means of a crane in ancient Greek and Roman drama to decide the final outcome." Hollywood is no stranger to this inept plot gimmick to save the day. I'd say this is similar to "helicopter parents" who hover overhead in a protective fashion.
Like many billionaires, Mr. Anschutz has his nice toys; his peers buy pro sports teams, such as Dan "Boy Wonder" Snyder of the Washington Redskins or the late George Steinbrenner with the NY Yankees. Mr. Anschutz has the Broadmoor, some notable entertainment firms and, oddly enough, our local daily paper with its creepy lunatic fringe editorials.
Forgive us for wondering why Mr. Anschutz saved the Gazette, even though it's a local rag with few redeeming qualities and few good reporters. I'm sure there's a monetary motive so I'll hazard a guess that he seeks to be a booster for the city to help his hotel, he seeks to limit negative news about himself, his hotel and his city, as well as using the paper to control the local dialog and influence local politics.
Foul billionaires like the Koch Bros are seeking to buy major big city dailies so they can pursue turning the USA into a paradise as envisioned by the execrable John Birch Society; I wonder what future Mr. Anschutz wishes for our humble burg and our Koch-funded Mayor who's hard at work throwing public employees, PERA, city utilities and all that good and holy under the greed bus as he obeys the dictates of unelected billionaires who seek to destroy government as we know it.
I think it is very telling that this large city has no truly Veg or Vegan restaurants. Of course, we are not known for our great food scene.
Summer camp does bring back some memories. I liked that you included camps that used scholarships. Zip lining and rock climbing sound like great summer camp activities. I didn't have those when I went to camp. Sounds fun.

IMHO, TCA should concentrate on some of its irrefutably more fundamental problems, such as blatant favoritism and nepotism in its sports programs, particularly football. SIgned, Former Titan Club Member
They are getting rid of him so the can move Barry Noreen here. Don't worry, same liberal balderdash and shibboleths.
I love this place! I have been a customer for over a decade. I will be a customer wherever they go. For me, the new place is closer than the old. Bonus!
Let me guess- selling RMJ in El Paso & CS would KILL the "nice" image that we hold to be the C4C project for Bach's legacy as our outstanding mayor. When is he up for re-election again-LOL!
Ironic- but if El Paso & CS had approved RMJ, we would have more tax revenues and wouldn't have to worry about the budget like we have since TABOR. It used to be that the government jobs were prized for the higher standard of living they brought to a community. I guess those days are over.
The Awesome Mountain Bike Rider.
They are never seen wearing anything other than Performance Ultra Shorts and Jersey and clicking along on tile floors at the coffee shop in their Shimano MTB Shoes still damp with sweat and smelling like it. They know the name of every awesome single track and have a GoPro permanently mounted to their helmet. They will only go riding with you to build up their own awesome rep for bombing a trail and to watch you on your boing-boing as you go down with the ship and then later post your involuntary dismount video on Facebook.
The other issue with privatization in Colorado Springs is that services are allocated based on a neighborhoods ability to pay. There are cases where streets aren't plowed and street lights are not turned on because not enough people could or would pay for these services
It's hard to imagine in this day and age that a school administration would pull such a senseless stunt just to prove to themselves that they are in total control. Then again, if it's true that that they have been secretly operating as a 'christian' school by lying and manipulation of their own charter requirements then that's just the sort of self-righteously malevolent behavior parents should expect to see more of in the future. The idea that your own personal beliefs should trump all law or convention is the most pernicious claptrap seen so far in this century.
Just because a school puts something in their 'policy' does not make it right. TCA is notorious for focusing on trivial matters. Does this student's long hair represent some kind of threat to the environment? Is this a distraction? I am a teacher and I always have to tell my students NOT to create drama where there is none. This is a 'classic' case of administration creating 'drama' where there is none. TCA is a charter school that has illegally operated as a christian school for years because they manipulate their charter to misrepresent the manner in which their curriculum is presented. A few years back they were under investigation for this. I find it funny, because I just want to share with TCA….WWJD..what would Jesus do? Actually, if Jesus attended TCA, I guess he'd be suspended for his long locks.
