    But they are still less than 28,000 total!


    The article even includes a list of Colorado's places off limits!


    Then it quotes some anti-gun people.

    There is a long discussion about one University adopting an anti-gun policy for students and offering to store their weapons (24 hour access!) while they are in resident dormitory halls.

    We’re not in the old west any more. The right to bear arms is an antiquated notion. The NRA they can kiss my butt, just don't shoot me.

    This is a very dangerous trend, especially in a city like Boulder. There is a skewed sense of concern in people who think that they need to bare arms in an area like this.

    So, this person fears my wearing short-sleeve shirts? I'm actually pretty easy on the eyes.

    Guys, it's not nice to make fun of her. Can you imagine the sheer terror of going to the beach? I feel sorry for her :(

    I was kind of shocked to see how few licenses they have issued in Colorado, a state with almost no places off limits to carry. Like the majority of states, open carry without a license is legal, but with the cold . . .

    It's because they've grown complacent...

    Anyone have any recent data on national trends and/or numbers of carry permits?
