CU Police Dept "Weapons on Campus"

Note: There have been reports that those with a valid permit can't carry on Public Transportation (Buses) in Colorado. Carry is allowed on public transportation if you have a valid permit. Your valid permit is "Legal Authority."

18-9-118. Firearms, Explosives, or Incendiary Devices In Facilities of Public Transportation

A person commits a class 6 felony if, without legal authority, he has any loaded firearm or explosive or incendiary device, as defined in section 9-7-103, C.R.S., in his possession in, or carries, brings, or causes to be carried or brought any of such items into, any facility of public transportation, as defined in section 18-9- 115 (4). L. 77: Entire section added, p. 976, § 7, effective June 29.L. 89: Entire section amended, p. 841, § 89, effective July 1.

____________________________________

Note: Denver International Airport (DIA) has signs posted at the entrance of the Terminal stating:

It is a FELONY OFFENSE for any person without legal authority to bring a loaded firearm or explosive or incendiary device into the airport or aboard a commercial aircraft. Violators may be sentenced to five years imprisonment a fine of $10.000 or both.

Those with a valid permit/license can carry into the airport but not into the sterile areas of the airport. Your valid permit/license is your legal authority. The only reference to firearms in the DIA Rules/Regulations states a Permit/License holder can't carry into secure areas of the airport. Secure areas would be past the TSA security checkpoint and anywhere else in the terminal or grounds off limits to passengers.

Today we had our return flight form Phoenix (AZ).
The procedure was similar with a couple of exceptions. After checking in, the lady at the counter took me to the 'oversize baggage' on the upper floor. There they did not have an x-ray machine, so they opened my suitcase, inspected it completely and then asked me to open the case with the handgun. They inspected it, closed it, put it back into the suitcase and locked the suitcase. The lady from Delta stayed with me the whole time.
They did not have a belt, so somebody from Delta was supposed to come to take the suitcase. I said that I would have preferred to stay to see that happening, but I was a couple of hours early and they were not sure of how long that would have taken ("sometimes they are quick, sometimes not"), so I left and went for breakfast. However according to the Delta App. the suitcase was loaded on the plane shortly after.
Arrived in Atlanta, I went directly to the oversize baggage claim. My suitcase was already there and already zip-tied. They asked me for an ID before giving it to me.
Overall it was painless, and everybody was quite friendly.

After getting gun luggage back in Atlanta airport, take it into restroom stall, remove the ziptie, put gun in holster, then carry it openly past the oversized luggage desk, with a stop there to return their ziptie.

You mean the ziptie that you cut off with you pocket knife? Umm, I mean nail clippers?

Delta is not allowing DC destination planes to carry your gun because of the Pres Inauguration.

Seriously, I thought DC was like NJ. Immediate arrest.?.

...
This is a HUGE blow to gun rights and a dangerous precedent to set-- that it's a good idea to forbid traveling with guns, even unloaded and encased long guns, for ten thousand square miles of geography* for a week, because of unspecified security concerns at one particular location fir a few hours of one day.

Even though 'this time' it's a private company doing it, the idea may take root and socialists / progressives will demand that the gov't do it as a matter of law for future events.

* if the geographic areas served by the two Washington DC area airports is a square approximately 100 miles per side, then that would be 10,000 mi.² of land.

I think its close to 10k square miles. Going north there is BWI in Baltimore, 40 miles, west is IAD, Dulles, about 20 miles and DCA, Reagan National just across the river.

The next airport west would probably be Pittsburgh, 250 miles, north would be Philadelphia, 140 miles, and south would be RIC, Richmond 125 miles, and ORF, Norfolk, 200 miles.

Maybe not quite a square but south and west could sure get close to 10K square miles served by the DC area 3.

You would think they would have an exception for residents returning home, but that doesn't seem to be the case. How many people flew out with their firearm and are now stuck?

Millions of gun owners can simply cancel Delta by never flying with them ever again.
