Colorado Senate Passes Concealed Weapon Bill [Opinion]
The Colorado Senate has just passed a bill giving anyone 21 years old or older the right to carry a concealed weapon without a permit.
For you or anyone else to do this you must be allowed to own a gun legally. This bill doesn't change the fact that you cannot have a weapon concealed or otherwise on any school properties.
This could be a mixed bag. Yes, it gives the gun owner the right to carry the said weapon around wherever they want to go. That could cause a panic in some places. I personally would feel safer seeing a gun on someone's hip rather than be concealed away.
You could be walking in the store or down the street not knowing that the person next to you could have a firearm on their person. How is that safe? If you want to carry a gun out in public I feel you should be able to see that firearm. That way you know what person has a gun or not.
Having a concealed weapon should only be meant for undercover cops or security guards. I love to go shooting, but never in my life would I want to hide my firearm to go places. If I am going to openly carry a weapon you will be able to see it. If this bill is signed by the governor it will go into effect immediately.
