Does grandma slapping unruly teen warrant lifetime ban on guns?: "My own longstanding position on ‘prohibited persons’ is anyone who can’t be trusted with a gun can’t be trusted without a custodian. But I also know the Bradys can be counted on to couch any given situation in the most hysterical of PR terms. The purpose behind this column is to demonstrate how widely the net cast by the anti-defense lobby extends. It’s time to talk about that grandma I mentioned in the headline. … Thing is, if convicted of domestic violence, Mrs. Collier will join the ranks of ‘prohibited persons,’ forbidden by that law to so much as touch a gun. Perhaps the Bradys could explain how rendering this frail little lady defenseless serves the interests of public safety? Of justice? Of basic human decency?”

CO: Rocky Mountain gun owner’s lawsuit against gun ban wins: "Today the CSU Board of Governor’s voted to rescind their illegal ban on concealed carry on campus. ‘They didn’t have a legal leg to stand on,’ said Dudley Brown, Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO). ‘We told them in January, in no uncertain terms, that state law did not allow them to create their own gun ban. Unfortunately, it took a lawsuit to force them to back down.’ RMGO filed suit against CSU’s Board of Governors on April 15th, proving that unelected board had no authority to override existing state law, which explicitly allows permit holders to carry on college campuses. A day later, a Colorado Appeals Court ruled against CU’s ban on carrying.”
