    How About We Create an Open Carry FAQ for Colorado?

    Howdy Folks!
    I have noticed that we spend a great deal of time covering the same questions fairly often.
    We've all seen 'em:
    "Can I carry in my car? Open? Concealed?"
    "I've heard you cannot carry in Aurora. Is that true?"
    "Can I carry my handgun with my permit from another state?"
    "What specific law says open carry is legal?"
    "What does Colorado consider 'concealed'?"
    "What is the atmosphere in Colorado Springs like for open carry?"
    And a host of other questions that keep cropping up from time to time.
    Of course, we welcome all those questions, and answer them as best we can. But....
    I am thinking it would be nice to create a Colorado specific FAQ that covers the most frequently asked questions,
    and ask the mods to sticky it to the top of the Colorado board page.

    Anybody think that might be a good idea?

    Blessings,

    Good idea, i still find sometimes going through trying to answer simple questions with simple answers and searching is a pain... a simple faq and such as a sticky in colorado portion would be nice. also with the statutes to back the answers with

    That is an excellent idea! I plan to print out all the statues regarding firearm laws and putting them into a binder to make it easier to cite the laws. I know I don't really cite anything in my posts because I'm too lazy to sit there and spend hours searching laws to cite. A little reference book will fix that. And I will make a Word version so I can copy and paste. One thing I would add to the Colorado Open Carry FAQ thread is a disclaimer that most of us are not lawyers, and folks who are new to OC should research and know the laws for themselves.

    Blessings,

    Is there a reason we are reinventing the wheel here?

    Howdy Pardner!
    Good question. The answer might be that it refers to a site outside of OCDO, for one. Next, despite that site being there, we are pretty darn often rehashing the same information time and again when we've got some bigger fish to fry, especially now. If that ain't enough, some of the information is outdated, especially as pertains to carry on college campuses. Then there are the frequent questions about whether open carry is prohibited in Aurora, Castle Rock, or any other specific jurisdiction.

    The RMGO FAQ is pretty much a reference to CRS, with little direct and easily digestible info made simple enough for anybody to get a quick answer to these oft asked questions we see on the forum.

    I personally believe it remains a good idea for us here to have a FAQ of our own.

    Blessings,
