    I just returned from an extended visit to Colorado. Open carry in and around Colorado Springs and vicinity did not result in any panic, 9-1-1 "Man with a G-G-GUN" calls, LEO confrontations, etc.

    Most people didn't even notice. Those that did said nothing or simply went about their business. I continued Open Carry throughout my visit even in Ultra Liberal Aspen, where the police were too busy looking for cigarette smokers polluting the air.

    Thanks for the on the scene report

    It is good to know that the anti-open-carry madness has not spread beyond Denver.

    The CO SC 3-3 decision affirming the Denver decision against open carry per local ordiance was made WITHOUT one justice - a former AG attorney who had argued for the state! My bet is if this ever comes up again, the CO SC will reverse.

    Well that's all well and good, but has anyone heard from Rocky Mountain Gun Owners or CSSA whether or not they intend to file a new lawsuit?

    I think that RMGO wants to launch another suit when the time is right, but money remains an issue for them. I'd keep an eye on their site for a status on their efforts to overrule Denver's "home rule" card on this.

    The best thing to promote Open Carry in Colorado is to follow the example given by the Virginia Citizens Defense League -- "Just DO IT". While there was an initial flurry of "Oh My Gawd -- a man with a GUN !!!" it quickly subsided when the VCDL stood by its principles and calmly pointed out the legality of Open Carry.
