The Colorado House passed the controversial “red-flag” bill on Monday, and now goes to the Senate. House Bill 1177 would allow law enforcement or family members to claim someone a threat to themselves or others and get a court order to have that person’s firearms seized for up to 364 days.

Does the city of Cortez have a high sales-tax rate? That question has come up following a remark made by Montezuma County Commissioner James Lambert. In a recent interview with KSJD’s Austin Cope, Lambert said he’d heard that Cortez has the second-highest sales-tax rate in Colorado. It turns out that isn’t true, but earlier corrections we posted on the KSJD web site also contained some inaccuracies.
