OPPOSITION RISING TO COLORADO GUN CONTROL


DENVER
— More than a year after pushing through through some of the toughest gun control measures in the country, Colorado Democrats are finding it harder than ever to get the state’s residents to get behind them. A Quinnipiac University Poll released Wednesday found that the strict new gun-control laws are losing support among voters.= The survey found that only 39 percent of Colorado voters favor the state’s hotly debated 2013 package of gun control measures, down from 43 percent support in Quinnipiac’s Feb. 5 poll. At the same time, opposition to the gun control laws is rising. The poll found that 56 percent of Colorado voters oppose the firearms laws, up from 52 percent in the Feb. 5 survey. More

Fourth graders busted for selling pot at elementary school…


DENVER
  – Two Colorado fourth graders were busted for selling marijuana at their elementary school, prompting officials today to urge adults to keep their weed locked away from kids. School officials said a 10-year-old fourth grade boy brought a small quantity of leafy marijuana to Monfort Elementary School in Greeley, Colorado, on Monday. “He sold it to three other fourth graders on the school playground, which resulted in a profit to the young man of $11,” John Gates, director of safety and security for the Greeley-Evans School District, told ABC News. The next day, Gates said one of the three young buyers brought a marijuana edible to school and gave it to the boy who sold the pot on Monday. That boy took a bite, but did not suffer any ill effects, Gates said. Both boys apparently got the weed from relatives, according to Gates. More

Christian Censorship Rising: Facebook Removes Culture Warrior Todd Starnes’ Cliven Bundy Post

Todd StarnesYour friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards.  This time I was censored for writing something about rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message. “We removed the post below because it doesn’t follow the Facebook Community Standards.” Now, before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list, let me assure you the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly.

Thousands starving on outskirts of Damascus; situation ‘unprecedented in living memory,

Residents wait to receive food aid distributed by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) at the besieged al-Yarmouk camp, south of Damascus on January 31, 2014, in this handout picture made available to Reuters February 26, 2014. World powers have passed a landmark Security Council resolution demanding an end to restrictions on humanitarian operations in Syria, but aid workers doubt it has the punch to make Damascus grant access and let stuck convoys deliver vital supplies. The resolution called for the immediate lifting of sieges in specific towns and cities around the country, including Yarmouk, a Palestinian neighbourhood in Damascus that took in refugees after the creation of Israel, where people have been trapped for eight months by an army siege.

Months ago, in times better than these, the only thing that could be obtained at the markets of Yarmouk in southern Damascus was a “green starch” that could be fried and eaten. One kilogram (2.2 pounds) of rice cost between $70 and $100. Boys scurried in search of dandelions and cactus leaves. A common meal included a bowl of water and spice. Some drank dog milk. Others ate fertilizer. Many had nothing at all. And then, 12 days ago, after the Syrian authorities cut off food shipments into the Palestinian refugee camp in Yarmouk, everything became more dire.

Calif. Evangelical Couple Runs Medical Marijuana Shop to Spread the Gospel and Heal the Sick


A California couple claims that they own and operate a medical marijuana dispensary in order to help the sick and spread the Gospel at the same time. Bryan and Lanette Davies began selling marijuana out of their Canna Care shop after claiming that God spoke to them. Now they consider themselves Sacramento’s only evangelical medical cannabis provider. ”I started praying, ‘Please help me Lord, I need to do something to be able to earn money.’ So He (God) said, ‘Open up a pot shop. Who are you not to do my will?’” said Bryan, according to TIME magazine. The Davies opened the medical marijuana shop with the intent of targeting men ages 20-30, because “they’ll spend the most on cannabis.” Seven years later, the dispensary has gained a loyal clientele and serves as a vehicle to spread Christianity, according to Bryan.

DAYS OF LOT – Oregon Gay Marriage Ban Case To Be Heard By Federal Judge

The Oregon State Capitol Building in Salem was designed in Art Deco style by architect Francis Keally of the New York firm of Trowbridge & Livingston. It was completed in 1938 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A federal judge in Oregon is ready to hear arguments about the state’s voter-approved ban on same-sex marriage, but no one will be in court to defend the measure. Four gay and lesbian couples have filed suit asking a judge to declare the ban unconstitutional and allow same-sex couples to wed. They also want an order that same-sex marriages performed in other states must be recognized in Oregon.The state attorney general, Democrat Ellen Rosenblum, has declined to defend the ban, saying there’s no legal justification for it, so lawyers on both sides of the case essentially agree. Nobody will be defending the law before U.S. District Judge Michael McShane on Wednesday, although a national group opposed to gay marriage is seeking permission to do so later. More
