WASHINGTON — During a combative hearing Wednesday on how to end the gun violence epidemic in the United States, Congressman Joe Neguse, a Boulder Democrat, said “assault weapons have no place in civilian hands,” while, at the same hearing, Republican Congressman Ken Buck, of northern Colorado, said the AR-15 is needed to kill “predators that are trying to disturb individuals, or trying to kill chickens or disturbing agriculture in some way.”

With less than 24 hours’ notice, hundreds of Coloradans gathered at the West Steps of the state capitol on Thursday evening to protest President Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker to be acting Attorney General of the United States. Whitaker had been AG Jeff Sessions’ Chief of Staff. He has publicly argued that Special Counsel Mueller’s Russia investigation has gone too far and that President Trump has the authority to end it whenever he wants.
