Re: “Concealed carry permits in El Paso County double in five years

"Tom Mauser with Colorado Ceasefire, a nonprofit that promotes the prevention of gun violence, wonders if the training requirement for concealed carry is adequate, noting that inexperienced firearms owners can freeze in tense situations. Even highly trained cops miss their target under pressure, he notes. Most people with CCWs [concealed carry weapons], when they get the permit, theyre doing target practice with nonmoving targets, he says. They havent been trained in handling those kinds of situations. There can be situations where they can make things worse."

Studies in the past have shown that armed citizens hit the intended target more often and miss less often than police do.

Re: “Air Force takes blame for water contamination, leaves ratepayers with the cost

"confirming the long-held suspicion that on-base activities are to blame for the high levels of PFCs a class of man-made chemicals linked to health issues in the Widefield Aquifer"

That is NOT what they said. They said they confirmed that the fire fighting foam had gotten into the soil, but they could NOT confirm that it was the, or even a, source of the contamination of the aquifer. It remains a POSSIBLE source of the contamination, but there are still other possible sources.

Re: “Legally, it doesn't take much for a guest to stake a claim to your home

Nancy Miller,

Are either your daughter or her boyfriend adults?

Has the boyfriend every paid you rent?

If he is an adult and has never paid you rent, serve him with an eviction notice.

Re: “Citizens for Safer Neighborhoods wants retail marijuana in the Springs

"The effects of legalized cannabis stores, besides the tax revenue generated, it would allow those citizens who deem it necessary to carry a firearm to be able to legally purchase cannabis to be used as medicine. Anyone knows that the medical cannabis registry does not allow one to own a firearm." - Ed Sanders

1) You conflate owning with carrying.

2) It is still against federal law to use MJ, regardless of recreational or medical, and own or purchase a firearm. If you walk into any firearm store while reeking of MJ, they will ask you to leave.

Re: “UPDATED: Transgender service in the military — what's happening now?

"It's only male and female, girls and boys, XX and XY. " - John Ritchie

There is also XXY, XYY, XXYY, etc. XXY occurs in about 1 out of every 1000 to 2000 births. About the same for XYY. XXYY is more rare at around 1 in every 40,000 to 80,000 births.

You really should watch Through the Wormhole Season 7 Episode 3 where Morgan Freeman explores if there are more than two genders. You will find it eye opening.

Re: “Can Air Force Academy cadets become parents while enrolled? Apparently so.

"You know what else would have been proactive? Wearing a condom. "

Maybe they did. No birth control method other than complete abstinence is 100% effective. I have known several people who took preventative measures and still ended up with the woman becoming pregnant.
