colorado's new red flag law

It doesn't matter which side you take in the gun debate. Everybody wants the killing to stop. Red flag laws were proposed after the February 14, 2018 shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. These laws change the focus away from reaction to prevention. Colorado is one of 12 states to enact a red flag law since the Parkland shooting. Technically, a red flag law is an “Extreme Risk Protection Order” (ERPO) statute. Ours goes into effect on January 1, 2020. CRS 13-14.5-101, et seq. It is named the Deputy Zachary Parrish III Violence Prevention Act. Parrish was a Douglas County Sheriff's deputy who was shot and killed on December 31, 2017 by a mentally ill man. The Parrish Act allows a court to order the relinquishment of…

FROM THE EDITORIAL DIRECTOR Carnivore's Dilemma One of my favorite episodes of The Simpsons is titled Lisa the Vegetarian and if you know anything about Lisa's character, you can imagine the rough plot outline. Half an hour of animated TV about our nation's often thoughtless meat-eating habits may not sound like a recipe for laughs, but at its finest The Simpsons is both funny and culturally astute.

behind the stories

CALLIE SUMLIN Writer Arvada-based writer (and former 5280 associate food editor) Callie Sumlin has long been preoccupied with the ethics of eating meat, especially given the headlines about its negative impacts on the environment. After dabbling in vegetarianism for a couple of years, she returned to her carnivorous ways, but her misgivings remained. So when she heard about regenerative agriculture and the possibility that it could improve the land rather than contribute to climate change, she was inspired to write “Meat Matters” (page 118). Along the way, Sumlin was amazed by the ranchers' openness. “Every single one I spoke with was willing to host me on their ranch,” Sumlin says, “and be totally transparent about their farming systems.” NEIL JAMIESON Illustrator If there's a ball, puck, bat, or goal involved, Neil Jamieson is probably interested:…
