    When you find out, let me know..
    Now this makes zero sense to me. Why should a person who
    has passed the req's for a CCW be forced to go through a
    background ck when purchasing a firearm ? More so,
    why are illegal aliens allowed to get a CCW when
    they've ALREADY broken our federal immigration
    laws here in the U.S ?

    Why would ANY sensible comm deny a bill that would rectify
    these problems, especially the illegal alien- CCW part to
    go ahead ? Am I mis-understanding this bill ? :confused:
    Please enlighten >

    I beg to differ (but just a little). The state, and Denver, is run by COMMUNISTS, (that's who).

    Idahohoho, the jolliest state
    I do my best to avoid Denver, which wants to be the San Francisco of the Rocky Mountains.

    Because, as many of us--including myself, I'm proud to say--have so often said, self defense is a human right. We, as individuals, don't have the authority to strip them of that right; consequently, we can't cede that authority to a government, as it's not ours to cede.

    You make a good point, but there are different ways to protect
    one's self. My point is when people knowingly break our laws
    here in the U.S when it comes to illegal immigration, these
    same people should not be allowed to obtain a CCW and
    in fact should not be able to legally obtain a firearm. Which
    I realize resorts to obtaining illegal arms such as stolen

    I have no problem with the self defense issue. I DO have
    a problem with people breaking our immigration laws, coming
    here and taking advantage of the benefits, rights and laws
    so many others have worked hard for, have even died for,
    so we can enjoy or are at least made accessible to the
    above rights, laws, etc. I feel no illegal immigrant
    should have access to these same items, as those who
    have taken the steps as so many others who've come
    before & done, including my own people back in the
    1800's, in becoming citizens. Going through these
    steps in becoming a citizen, or if not a citizen a LEGAL
    non-citizen, shows respect for our laws as well
    as our Country. Though I do admit this blew up right
    in our faces 9/11/01 as the murderers were here on expired

    It's been a battle to get CCW laws set in place. In
    fact out here in Corruptfornia one is doomed right
    from the start in many areas just trying to get the
    paperwork done and turned in and then shut down
    by the local LEO.

    Now with those who are serving in our Armed Forces and
    are - where here illegally, I'm fine with that as it shows
    that at least they were-are willing to defend this Nation,
    and in such should be allowed to become citizens once
    their stretch is done and an Honorable Discharge is
    granted and along with this the rights and benefits that come
    with becoming a citizen here in this Country.

    I've gotten off topic again, but I feel illegals should NOT
    be allowed CCW's or the right to obtain a firearm legally.
    [Geez, one might think I said this enough times already. ;) ]

    Illegal aliens are NOT allowed to get a CCW, and this bill would have done nothing to change that. The whole illegal alien angle is a red herring on this one. I can only assume that it was brought out because it is the current hot-topic. It is silly to make CCW holders undergo a state check when they already passed a more exhaustive check to get their permit. There are bigger fights that I think are more worth fighting, but its a noble effort nonetheless.
