While researching for an upcoming ski trip, I discovered that Colorado's laws are quite friendly. Basically, one cannot carry into a shool or public building if the public building has metal detectors and a place to store the firearm. That's it. One also cannot carry into the General Assembly building unless he has a license to carry. Car carry concealed is allowed with or without a permit. Local governments can ban open carry in their buildings. That's it. Since I don't plan to be anywhere near schools or government buildings, I think the law is "Carry where you want while visiting" for me . . . The really interesting thing was how few statutes they have compared to Georgia's patchwork quilt of laws and the very simple language Colorado uses. It is structured like this: No place is off limits except as hereinafter listed. Then there is almost nothing listed (just the two places - and even then the government buildings aren't really off limits, you just have to check your gun - still carry to and from). It was a rather refreshing read after looking at Georgia's convoluted mess of laws. It also leaves very little up to ambiguity or interpretation.
