Donald Trump was trapped in an elevator for 30 minutes ahead of a Friday rally before being rescued by Colorado Springs fire department, multiple local news outlets reported Saturday.

According to news station KRDO, emergency crews responded to an elevator rescue at The Mining Exchange Hotel where a group of 10, including the Republican nominee, were trapped between the first and second floor.

“The firefighters were able to secure the elevator, open the top elevator hatch, lower a ladder into the elevator which allowed all individuals to self-evacuate, including Mr. Trump, onto the second floor lobby area,” Steven Wilch, who is with the Colorado Springs Fire Department, told KRDO.

Within an hour, the station noted, the GOP presidential nominee was bashing the fire marshal at his rally.

“So I have to tell you this. This is why our country doesn’t work,” Trump said from the stage at his Friday rally, which began nearly an hour late as a result of the mishap. “We have plenty of space here. We have thousands of people outside trying to get in. And we have a fire marshal that said, ‘Oh we can’t allow more people.’

“The reason they won’t let them in is because they don’t know what the hell they’re doing.

“Hey, maybe they’re a Hillary person. Could that be possible? Probably. I don’t think there are too many of them,” Trump said.

The greatest story of the election.

Students at the shooting range for gun safety

PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. -

Middle school students moved their lesson from the classroom to the shooting range.

It wasn’t your typical field trip. A group of students in Pueblo County was firing live ammo and learning about gun safety.

“I’m very excited, today we’re going to come out here on the gun range and shoot a little bit. The past week we’ve learned about the revolutionary war,” said Jonah Statezny, a Craver middle school student.

“My favorite part is shooting guns. When I was little we used to go to the shooting range,” said another student, Danielle Cooper.

These students have been on field trips before. But not one quite like this.

Guns in school can be a touchy subject.

“Often firearms and schools don’t mix. There’s a big fear there. So we are pushing the safety aspect and hopefully ease some people’s fears,” said Timothy Baird, with the Craver Middle School

Appleseed is a nonprofit, dedicated to teaching American history and traditional marksmanship.

For the first time, the national organization brought guns into a classroom, right in Pueblo County.

“We’ve never been allowed to bring actual real firearms into a school. Until this week. This is a very big deal. We had them touching fire arms, holding them and learning about how to handle them safely,” said Elizabeth Blackwood with Appleseed.

"I think everyone should learn how to use a gun but learn how to use it properly, and the precautions you’re supposed to take and how serious a gun really is,” said Statezny.

“I think they should learn and it’s actually pretty good advice,” added Cooper.

It’s advice some teachers think needs to be in the hands of students in school.

“Personally I think it’s a great step forward,“ said Baird. 

The school got permission from the Pueblo County Sheriff’s office and all the parents for gun lessons and the field trip.

A step in the right direction.  Permission from all the parents.  Doesn’t sound like the kind of people who wanted gun control laws passed in their state, does it?  Oh wait, that’s right.  The new gun control laws were FORCED on the people of Colorado by corrupt senators.  That’s why two of them were recalled and one was forced to resign.  It’s almost like the government isn’t looking out for what the people want.  Hmm.
