    Well, it happened. What happened? House Bill 11-1205... that's what!!

    To my surprise, a bill has been introduced here to allow for Constitutional Carry along the lines of Alaska, Vermont, and Arizona. Here is the bill...

    http://www.leg.state.co.us/clics/cl...583112C8725781E005F3120?Open&file=1205_01.pdf

    Here's what I'd ask you all to do... Please...

    Contact a few members of our General Assembly by CLICKING HERE. Contact a few members of each the Senate and the House. Note that there are several pages there. You can contact a member of a district where you live, ski, hunt, fish, etc. by searching by district.

    A map of our Senate districts can be found HERE.
    A map of our House districts can be found HERE.

    Wherever you reside, vacate, whatever, you can contact that member of our state legislature and let them know how Colorado's tourist economy will benefit from the passage of this law.

    BUT ALSO - Contact our governor by CLICKING HERE.

    Also, if you are a Coloradoan, please, in addition to the above, sign the petition that you can find by CLICKING HERE.

    p.s.
    If you'd also mention that HB1180 should be reconsidered and resubmitted to the desk of the governor, we can fight for that one too. It is a CCW permit/NICS bypass at dealer purchase.

    Thanks!! :)

    We in Wyoming are trying to go Con-Carry right now, as well. It'd be nice to see Colorado go that way as well.

    Half-bump...

    I've contacted six elected servants so far. Only one had the self worth to reply. It was quite obvious that he typed the email himself, and he was indeed on our side. That is only the second time in all my years of pestering the ruling class, that one penned their own specific response to my letter(s).

    I'll tell you what I told all of them...

    Getting the governor's signature on this bill is not what I consider victory. Getting this bill to his desk IS.

    Hmm... seems like a surge in Constitutional Carry bills are flying around... NH introduced one too... Colorado... Doubt it will make it anywhere but I have contacted Rep. Bob Gardner who is the only Republican who has not co-sponsored the bill in the committee.

    The bill is scheduled to come before committee on Feb 24th....

    Sign the petition here:
    http://www.rmgo.org/petitions/colorado-constitutional-carry

    Please contact Rep. Gardner and show your support:

    Thanks Ben. Let's be as optimistic as possible to at least motivate some of our fellow gun owners to contact a representative.

    It looks like you got some info from RMGO. I got their email and thought I would post a snip or two of it here. I don't know if any Colorado residents, who are members here, get emails from RMGO, and I don't think I've ever seen/read anyone here claiming membership, but RMGO is a wonderful org.

    Thanks, but you should have read the HB 11-1205 before posting... It specifically authorizes concealed carry without a permit. Good catch, but even that bunch on Colfax isn't dumb enough to just overlook that fact.

    Unfortunantly, when it got to Senate Committee, today, it died 3/2...Dems control the Senate.
