PERRY — Mad math: State lawmakers say more guns in public schools will net fewer shootings

So do you want your kid taking a chance in the hallway as gunfire erupts between Johnny Nutball and Dead-Eye Dan the Janitor? I didn’t think so. Do you want the shakiest gun in the west wing pointing her heater at the classroom door as everyone cowers in the back of the room only to shoot dead some poor kid who comes in looking for a place to hide?

PERRY: The mystery of flight easier to unravel than Colorado’s orange obsession

I don’t understand what would make a fan of anything dye their hair orange or wear a barrel. It is, as any Vulcan would note, illogical. Is it the thin metro air? Too much sun? Something in the water? A lack of better sporting options? What?

PERRY: Last call for common sense when it comes to closing time laws Columnists

PERRY: Last call for common sense when it comes to closing time laws

It makes sense. If you’ve worked in a hopping bar, you know what a nightmare last call can be. About half the bar rushes to order as much booze as they can, and then they rush to pound it to avoid having employees snatching their vodka tonics. So multiply that by a few thousand people twice a week in the middle of the night in a short distance of each other, and you’ve got trouble

OAKES: Rangeview honors its top 30 boys basketball players of all-time

AURORA | With only two coaches in 30-plus years of boys basketball, putting together a list of Rangeview’s top 30 players wasn’t as much of a challenge as it might be for some schools. Only Terry Taylor Sr. and current …

PERRY: Freaky liberal loathing for Aurora’s new radar love

Once again, bleeding heart, commie, pinko liberals like me are in the position of begging conservative types on the Aurora City Council to back off the Big-Brother-government-backed-nannyism-Obamanation-police-state-tactics when it comes to Aurora traffic enforcement. I hate it when that happens.

PERRY: Legislature, despite 2014 election, needs to suck it up and get to work

The end run by right-wing-nuts around Colorado’s easy-going political system has added a new, sordid dimension to Colorado politics

PERRY: Cops are wrong that there’s comfort in knowing this Colorado shooting could have been worse

While it’s amazing that a county sheriff department can rally the way it did, getting kids out of the building and using an on-site cop to quickly get to the shooter as part of an “active shooter” protocol, Robinson is irresponsible in implying to the public that, somehow, police now have handle on rampant school shootings and are able to contain or even prevent bloodshed

PERRY: Thanks giving me a chance to realize Aurora is the center of a pretty weird universe

I’m thankful that local gun-gizmo maker Magpul didn’t leave Colorado after the new wimpy gun laws went into effect and that they now have a 40-round magazine for under $20. I’m thankful that even a lousy shot like me doesn’t need 40 rounds to hit an elk the size of a bus, and that I’m not much interested in eating anything smaller than a TV after it gets filled with buckshot.

PERRY: Nesty business — Arapahoe DA’s voter fraud chickens come home to roost

Are you freaking kidding me? Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler pushed to spend about $11,000 worth of critically valuable lawyer time on reeling in two poor immigrants who may or may not have fudged their voter status. Are we …
