Why Gun Control in Colorado

Wallpaper Gun (33)-648949

First Off let me state this “Part of This is pure Speculation on my part “now that we have that out-of-the-way.

I was watching the news networks the other day and ran across this little news tidbit to recall Colorado Democrat and Senate President John Morse for his support for gun control in the state of Colorado.Listening to both sides it hit me why do you need gun control in a state like Colorado,yes they have had a couple of high-profile shooting (Aurora and Columbine) but overall In 2011, there were 1.51 firearm murders per 100,000 people, placing Colorado in the top 8 states with the lowest rates of firearm murder, according to a recent FBI report on firearm violence in the 50 states. Colorado also ranks 28th out of 50 in a number of robberies involving a firearm. When it come to assault with firearms, Colorado ranks at about the national average, with 45.72 firearm-related assaults per 100,000, compared to a national average of 43.77.

Colorado has one of the most conservative implementations of gun regulations in the country and, despite calls for more stringent gun control laws, it also has low rates of murder with a firearm and low to average rates of other firearm-related crime . with all this said Colorado has more than a few private paramilitary groups and there is nothing wrong with that even The American Civil Liberties Union said that it had little fondness for paramilitary groups but that such groups had a constitutional right to free assembly. ‘ this is the pure Speculation on my part ‘ Is the current Democrat Admiration afraid of these groups is this why they keep pushing Democrats like John Morse and Mike Feeley to push for gun control and regulating paramilitary organizations in Colorado , Is the Democrat Admiration afraid if our nation collapses and the Admiration calls for Martial law that groups like this might stand up to Admiration and say no way.Is the current Admiration afraid that the people might back the paramilitary organizations over the current Admiration I don’t know Like I stated this is pure Speculation on my part, But what if?

Longer School Days

For some school days are looking like they might get much longer up to 300 hrs longer. That is what five states are planning for 2013. the five states are  Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York and Tennessee, This initiative which hopes to boost student achievement and make U.S. schools more competitive on a global level.The three-year pilot program will affect almost 20,000 students in 40 schools.Federal, state and district funds will cover the costs also the Ford Foundation and the National Center on Time & Learning will be making funds available.More time in the classroom will give students more time for the arts and help those that are falling behind that is the hope anyway.

There is some research suggesting students who spend more hours learning perform better.One study comes out of Harvard’s Roland Fryer he states that intensive tutoring and adding at least 300 hours to the standard school calendar.But  A report last year from the National School Boards Association’s Center for Public Education disputed the notion that American schools have fallen behind in classroom time, pointing out that students in high-performing countries like South Korea, Finland, and Japan actually spend less time in school than most U.S. students.This is where I disagree with the National School Boards Association’s Center for Public Education schools in South Korea and Japan are very highly competitive from K thru 12 and beyond to get into the best schools the kids must prove themselves before they get in Family’s start prepping their children almost from birth as for homework they have 3 to 4 more than the children in the states, yes there are some schools that do this in the states but most if not all are private schools.

Can you just see the lawsuits if our public schools switched over to this it would have the counts locked up for years on end.

I’m not saying that we don’t need to do something about our schools system we do! and I do dearly hope this is the start of school reform here in the states

A New Kind Of Protest “Secession”

A new kind of protest is hitting the White House the past few days, Some say it started as a joke! but it is starting to look more like a movement, What am I talking about 47 states almost all of the union have started petitions to secede. Texas has reached 25,0000 signatures that trigger a White House review.

the complete list is AlabamaAlaskaArkansasArizonaCaliforniaColoradoConnecticutDelawareFloridaGeorgiaHawaiiIdahoIllinoisIndianaIowaKansasKentuckyLouisianaMarylandMassachusettsMichiganMinnesotaMississippiMissouriMontanaNebraskaNevadaNew HampshireNew JerseyNew MexicoNew YorkNorth CarolinaNorth DakotaOhioOklahomaOregonPennsylvaniaRhode IslandSouth CarolinaSouth DakotaTennesseeTexasUtahVirginiaWest VirginiaWisconsin  WyomingCaliforniaGeorgiaMissouriNew YorkOklahomaSouth Carolina and Penns

.The last time anything like this happened was right before the Civil War. Do I think we are heading for another one I surely hope not, But I think the White House needs to take a look at this and realize that there are a lot of angry people who do not agree on the way the nation is headed.

UPDATE we now are up to 49 states

UPDATE we now have all 50 states  4 at last count had the needed numbers
