Concealed Weapons Charges In Colorado
Denver Concealed Weapons Attorneys
Even though Colorado is considered an “open carry state”, meaning that you could technically walk down the street with a weapon showing in the holster in your belt, that would not be a very wise move. With charges involving weapons violations and gun violence being a hot topic in the news behind sex crimes and Internet sex crimes, you are likely to draw a lot of unwanted attention from police. Don’t do it!
Colorado Concealed Weapons (CCW) Permit
The other option in Colorado, is to get your CCW or concealed carry weapon permit, because Colorado law does not allow you to carry a concealed weapon unless you have obtained a permit. If you are smart enough not “open carry” and you do not have a CCW, then you can be charged for carrying a concealed weapon without a permit. This is a serious charge and if you are convicted, the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) may never let you own a firearm in Colorado again.
Even if you have the proper permit, the law does not allow you to carry your gun in all places at all times. For instance, even if you have a concealed weapon (CCW) permit, you can’t bring your gun into a school or a courthouse or an airport. There can be some confusion about where you can and where you cannot carry a concealed weapon.
