Concealed Carry Permits (CCW) in Colorado

The criteria for obtaining a Concealed Carry Permit, pursuant to C.R.S. 18-12-203, can be quite extensive. People who apply for a permit and exercise their Gun Rights have to undergo background checks and have their lives fully examined by the Sheriff's in Denver, Douglas, and El Paso County.

As I was reading headlines recently, I stumbled across an article where the police chief of Chicago was quoted saying he didn't want people having guns and thus, he was against Concealed Carry in Chicago and Illinois. I chuckled to myself about the irony of the whole situation. The police chief has one of the highest murder rates in the United States. Under his supervision, many people are killed by illegal gun usage. And yet he thinks that allowing citizens to arm themselves, when the police aren't protecting them, is a bad thing.

Contrast the enormous murder rate in Chicago with the murder rates in places like Denver, Colorado Springs, and Lakewood. Locally, some Sheriffs have sent a memorandum to the Colorado government advocating for people to carry concealed weapons. Our Sheriffs believe it is a good thing that our citizenry be armed. Consequently, we also have a lower murder rate than places like Chicago, New York, and Washington D.C. where gun possession is frowned upon.

I believe that people should have the right to keep and bear arms in Arapahoe, Douglas, and Jefferson County. This belief also applies to the right of the masses to have a CCW. There are certain places in Colorado where CCW's are hard to get. For instance, in Denver, more people are denied the ability to have a CCW than in a place like Castle Rock.

When someone is denied access to a CCW, the first step is to request that the Sheriff in Gilpin, Pueblo, or Arapahoe County review their application a second time. It helps to have an attorney write a letter to support your review. An attorney can provide insight and give legal argument. The second step is an appeal to the District Court. Here, it is pivotal to have legal aid when filing your appeal. There are many things that have to be done accurately with your appeal; otherwise, the court could reject it on some formality that wasn't followed properly.
