Got a call the other day, the lead Denver PD Detective called and asked me if I want the upcoming cancelled spot for the interview for my CCW renewal. I said, yes, see you later this week! Went in, the process was routine and I asked to see the Detective to thank her. I did in fact, thank her and shared my appreciation for her acting on the Chief’s request to move up my CCW renewal interview from April 29th, to today. The Detective, a very nice person who handled my last renewal five years ago was very touched that I personally asked to see her. I told her the feeling is mutual.

Five years ago, the renewal process took two weeks! I asked the Detective how long is the process currently. She said that her renewals sent to the CBI in November have NOT cleared yet! She told me that applications for concealed carry in Denver County, the MOST liberal in all of Colorado have sky-rocketed since the Aurora Theater shooting last summer. The wait is now pushing ninety days and counting… for RENEWALS too!

If I had not contacted the Chief personally, mentioning to him that I called in five months earlier than my permit’s expiration, requesting for the possibility that my interview get moved up… I would most probably have an expired permit, even though Colorado law mandates a maximum ninety day processing limit.

The media is quick to point out every nook and cranny falsehood about legal guns and crime. The Colorado Legislature is OUT OF CONTROL with their wish list to ban elements of concealed carry. What the media does not focus on is the element of rampant crime and that criminals are the REAL problem, and not law abiding CCW permit carriers.

Why else would the lines to get an initial permit and renewal be SO long a wait time? It’s simply because people want the right to protect themselves and family from the criminals! How come the media does not talk about this?

The media (and the Legislature) in their political correctness, all they talk about are additional restrictions for legal concealed carry folks who pay their fees and taxes. It is totally abhorrent and reprehensible that the media shines only darkness on CCW permit holders rather than the positivity that legal permit holders exemplify.

If the ultra left and politically correct (or incorrect) do-gooders want to pick a battle over firearms and the Second Amendment rights of the people, let them.

For this law abiding individual and others like me, we pick the Second Amendment over any friendship with those who want to take away our Constitutional rights! Second Amendment folks around the country have taken all they can from this totally biased media and the folks like those in the Colorado legislature who want to ram their restrictions into places where the sun does not shine!

I for one and many others like me say, if the government is looking for a real political and social fight… well… they’ve got one on their hands now!

We, the legal Second Amendment folks, are simply not going to take this crap any longer! We want peace and tranquility! NOT government or criminal interference!

Have a safe weekend!

Keep up the good fight brother! I really feel for you all in the Denver area.

Things are very different here on the west side of the mountains. I got a letter from the the sherif reminding me it was time to renew about six months before mine expired.

Good luck to you and let's all keep contacting our representatives.

Denver will ruin Colorado the way the Chicago does for Illinoise.

Isn't the Denver, Colorado area infested/infected/ruined by former Californians? I promise to never project "Californiaism" when I escape.

I live on the Northern Front Range of Colorado in Larimer County. Its a different world here in Free America. I have had a permit since before Colorado became "shall issue". Our previous Sherriff offered permits under the "may issue" laws of the day, and reissued new ones automatically when the State passed "Shall Issue" a few years later. When you're renewal date is about six months away they send you a notice and renewall application. a small fee, a background check, new picture and prints, and your permit is in your mailbox in a couple weeks. I can not imagine why Denver sees fit to tie up resources personally interviewing everyone to renew. Yet they still take cops off the streets because of budget cuts. :banghead:
