    Why is OC prohibited in Denver?

    Not from CO was just wondering about it. Seen alot of posts saying OC was prohibited in Denver.

    Are the cities/counties allowed to prohibit OC like here in MO?

    Or are they just the peoples republic of Denver?

    Because people delude themselves into thinking that death by crime in a city is trumped by the "higher" cause of keeping so many sheep comfortable. When in reality, IMO, since there is a greater likelihood a person's going to find violent crime in a city, then the need to have an armed citizenry is greater in town.

    One of the many instances of the ability of humans to bow to the pressure of the masses, even when it's a life and death decision.

    BTW, Portland does the same thing, here, as do many of the larger towns. Dumb x2.

    Because they are IDIOTS!

    Too many liberals. Too many "Feel Good Sheep". Too many weak politicians. Gov. Ritter. The list goes on!

    At least we can CC in Denver.

    Denver is a 'mile-high' city...lack of O2 has strange effects on sheep brains.

    Denver has always been more like Kalifornia than Colorado.

    Here you go:

    After the State's motion to dismiss for lack of standing was denied, the case was set for trial

    Bottom line: A CO State sumpreme court ruling in 2004 left our excellent premption law in shambles. They comprimised on OC and were told to leave CCW alone. Meyers was the judge (supreme court chief justice).

    BTW, "HOME RULE" was the term Denver used to break the state law.

    I'm assuming you have a CHL? If so, you, like myself, can OC in said cities.

    The only difference with Denver is that the city is allowed to ban OC city-wide without having to post it. State law requires cities to post areas where they wish to ban OC. Up in Fort Collins, most of the "Open Space" and "Natural Areas" are posted forbidding firearms (also flying kites and picking up sticks). No city besides Denver may have a city-wide ordinance banning OC without signs to notify the people.

    Cities and municipalities cannot however ban conceal carry from public areas and buildings, only private property owners may forbid carry within their businesses and homes.

    They are two different things, in OR, like most places.

    One may openly carry anywhere, except for where it's been posted by a municipality, county or agency.

    One may carry concealed only with a CHL, which generally exempts a person from statutes that otherwise disallow a person from carrying in a place. Same as in most states I'm aware of.

    Did you not know? OR law is preempted for state license holders. CHL holders are exempted from local gun restrictions such as those in Portland, Beaverton, Tigard, Oregon City, Salem, and Independence. Anyone with a CHL can legally OC in those cities.

    Oregon (re: Preemption)
    Yes, I know.

    We're talking at cross purposes, I think, missing what the other is saying. I simply originally said that some of the larger towns in Oregon do the same thing as Denver, banning the carry of firearms. Yes, the preemption I mentioned does exist in Oregon and does apply to CHL holders. The same preemption has no bearing on open carrying (without a CHL). But of course, this is all in Oregon and of no relevance to Colorado.

    Xader ... tinkerin ...? Change of personality, is it?


    We've only got a couple hours to go, if September it is.

    Hm. How to tick off the moderators in 6hrs. Hm, indeed. As the Wicked Witch o' the West said, "These things must be done delicately!"
