Offered by Wes Bear, Owner/Instructor – Concealed Carry Workshop
There have been a lot of questions about the Constitutional Carry bill that is working its way through the Colorado legislature this year. It should be noted that similar bills have been brought before congress in previous years and have been voted down. The governor of Colorado has made it clear he would not sign it again this year.
What is Constitutional Carry? If this bill becomes law and you are a Colorado resident and you are legally allowed to purchase and possess a handgun, then you could carry it concealed anywhere you can now legally carry a handgun. Currently, the right to carry your gun concealed ends at the state border, there is no reciprocity.
What is reciprocity? Reciprocity is an agreement between states to accept each other’s concealed carry permits. As of the writing of this article, a Colorado concealed handgun permit allows you to carry in 36 other states. There is legislation (National Reciprocity) in the United States congress that would cause a concealed carry permit issued by any state to work similar to your state issued driver’s license. This is a good thing.
The key point is that there is no permit involved in Constitutional Carry, therefore no reciprocity. If you want to carry concealed anywhere but Colorado you would still need to acquire a valid concealed handgun permit.
Concealed Carry Workshop encourages you to contact your state & federal congressmen and ask them to support both Constitutional Carry and National Reciprocity. Let them know what you expect of them if they want your vote next election.
