Prosecuted in Colorado? Not unless you commit a crime there.I am a Michigan resident and have a thirty year criminal record for stealing a car and possessing a slide hammer. I was a punk back then and am lucky that I lived to tell about it. I am now in my fifties with a grad school degree, a professional license, and a full governor's pardon. I am one of less than 100 hundred people in my state who have managed to get one since they toughened the rules in the 1960s. I also have a Michigan Concealed Carry Permit which I have had for several years and with no disciplinary history.
Colorado and Michigan theoretically have reciprocity, but I've heard about your wonderful CBI. Since my record is sealed and I easily pass a federal background check I know that the chance of my record ever coming up is very slim, but I wondered what if it did? Can I be prosecuted in Colorado?Assuming that I don't wind up somehow making national headlines is it likely? The scary thing about question "B" is that the only way that I would make the national headlines was if I used the weapon defensively and the "victim's" decedents had a very large set of lungs.
I know that some of you will want to tell me what they would have done if they caught me. The scary thing is I would probably do the same thing to myself today. I was a damn fool and am lucky that the cops caught me rather than the car-owner. Boy I see the world differently now in my 50s.
