Colorado CCW means instant entry into criminal database?
My wife and I moved to CO from CA just a few weeks back and are trying to get the ball rolling for us both to get our CCW by year's end. I stumbled across this little piece here that mentions depending on which county you are in (we are in Adams)... that your Sheriff can and will immediately enter you into a statewide criminal database and flag you as "a person of interest" upon receiving your CCW.
While this won't deter me from pursing my CCW... it will make my wife consider a little harder if she should or shouldn't. She is going to school to be a pharmacist and being in a criminal database as a person of interest while working in public health (especially if you've done nothing criminally wrong) just seems wrong.
Can anyone shed light on this? Is it true? And if so... doesn't that pretty much put a target on you the second you are in a traffic violation or your tags are ever run? It sounds a little crazy.
