Many Colorado Sheriffs are entering CCW holders into the Colorado Bureau of Investigation Database since they are considered "dangerous" or "Persons of Interest". My sheriff has entered the names, so I guess I get to see what happens if I get pulled over or my tag number gets run. Here is a link to the Colorado counties where the sheriff has entered law-abiding CCW holders into the database:

Does anyone know if other states do this? Has anyone had LEO contact with their name in a database like this?

Looks like there'd be grounds for a lawsuit in there somewhere...

Thanks Democratic Party, I love how you're always looking out for the little guy! Discrimination doesn't count as long as it's done against people who don't traditionally vote for your party...

I think in TX they can see that a driver has a CHL. Not necessarily a criminal database.

I'm in the Massachusetts Criminal History Systems Board thanks to my License To Carry. I doubt that will ever change.

In Idaho the CCW ID# is the same as our driver's licenses and state issued ID (for people that don't drive). Police here can see if you have a CCW just by pulling up the plates on your car through database links. But that's it. We aren't flagged as persons of interest or anything like that. I've seen the computer display, just simply says Concealed Weapons Permit on the additional info area.

It looks like about 2/3 of the sheriffs in Colorado have done this. My sherrif has (R) by his title. Go figure.:confused:

In VA, CHP holders can be flagged by the police by registration plates.

Eventually they will tire of such pettiness when it begins to make their work more difficult. Imagine turning to the database for a list of possible suspects and having to filter through a bunch of law-abiding permit holders.

The stupid thing about it is this - in Colorado, it's perfectly legal for anyone to carry a loaded handgun in their vehicle for self-defense.

If every legal gun-owner is allowed to have a loaded handgun in his vehicle, what good does it do for the cop to see that you have a CCW permit? A cop should be more concerned about those who DO NOT appear on the list.

Eventually they will tire of such pettiness when it begins to make their work more difficult.
Not likely. The use of that database for CCW-holders was supposed to sunset in July 2007. There's a bill making it's way through the state right now to make that useage permanent. There's another bill making its way through that will add a $15 fee to every FFL transfer - the fee will be used to maintain and upgrade the CCIC and their database.

And get a load of this garbage. (http://www.coloradosenatenews.com/content/view/324/26/)

Every day, I'm more convinced that a totally gridlocked government is the only way to avoid losing more constitutional rights.

I will say it one more time. Democrats think keeping track of gunowners is perfectly good. But all heck breaks out with city resolutions if the Feds want to know who checked what books that the Feds own in the Feds own library. I mean our civil rights are at stake.:banghead:

I have no idea if it would be actionable, but I like to think out of 22k people, some will be talking to their attorneys
