Gun law based on flawed estimate, Romo on the mends and The James letter read by Morgan Freeman

A law expanding background check requirements on Colorado gun sales has been in effect for about a year, and an Associated Press analysis of state data compiled during that span shows the projected impact was vastly overstated in a key budget report. The discovery has prompted a prominent Democratic lawmaker to question whether the Legislature misallocated millions of taxpayer dollars based on the flawed estimate, which has provided an opportunity for Republicans to resume attacks over regulation that already has come at great political cost to Colorado liberals. Democrats pushed the proposal into law last year as part of a package of gun restrictions meant to improve safety after devastating mass shootings. Lawmakers drafting the background check requirement, aimed at keeping firearms away from those with a criminal history, relied on information from a non-partisan research arm of the Legislature that predicted about 420,000 new reviews over the first two years.   http://www.newsradioklbj.com/news/latest-news/national-headline-news/apn...     

 

Cowboys' Romo happy to spend hours nursing back -  Tony Romo paused to add up how long it would take to coddle his surgically repaired back on the first day of training camp. The final tally for the 34-year-old Dallas Cowboys quarterback was about four hours. Romo isn't worried about getting hit. He thinks he can play several more years, even joking Thursday that he'll still be taking snaps when he's 45. But he knows he will have to alter his routine significantly after a herniated disk in a season-saving win at Washington led to back surgery that forced him out of a loss in a playoffs-or-bust finale against Philadelphia. Romo said he spent about 2 1/2 hours before the first full practice on stretching and other work on his back, and he anticipated at least another hour or so before he went to bed. The extra care probably won't take that long all the time, but there will be at least a little something every day. "That's what I have to do and I have no problem doing that," Romo said. "I love the game and it's going to be something that's easy to do to make sure that you're always in good health."     http://www.newsradioklbj.com/news/sports/sports-headlines/cowboys-romo-h...                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  While on Mike & MIKE Frank Caliendo as Morgan Freeman read the now famous LeBron James i'm coming home letter.
