    Unfortunately, here is a story that illustrates the futility of laws restricting the right to carry.Today agunman killed one person and injured five others, including a police officer, at a Safeway distribution center in Denver.

    I understand that Denver is refusing to recognize state preemption of right-to-carry laws. What is Denver's policy on open carry and concealed carry? I understand that open carry is illegal in Denver? -Opie

    I hate to say it, but as soon as I saw the headline, I immediately thought of the political climate. I read about the City/County of Denver's court case against the State of Colorado. Perhaps if the city wasn't hostile to the Second Amendment, somebody may have been able to do something ?

    CCW in Denver is still legal. From what i've heard, Safeway is NOT ccw friendly though. Percentage wise, only about 1% of Coloradans have a ccw permit, so most of the time a work place shooter has free reign until the cops show up.

    Thats a huge reason why i DO ccw at work.

    Safeway is a California company, so that explains their anti-gun stance.

    Safeway may be a California-based company, but I don't think that's the reason for their anti-gun policy [added by edit: I refer to the policy for employees, not customers]. Any company big enough to have a legal department will have such a policy.

    I have never worked for any company that did not have an anti-weapon policy for employees; I suspect that the only companies which allow employees tocarry, openly or concealed, are all small businesses owned by someone who appreciates the second amendment. Every gun shop I have entered had openly carrying employees; every chain storeselling gunshad none.

    As did I when I lived in VA since the laws there are very gun owner friendly and make it hard for a store to stop you from carrying. Out here in CO the DEnver/Boulder area is a little different since you have lots of anti-gun folks and ultra liberal judges who act like this is CA. Once you get outside of the cities any type of carry is the rule, not the exception.
