    Pueblo, along with every other municipality in Colorado, except Denver, cannot enact a wholesale ban on open carry as per the Meyer decision(http://www.rmgo.org/alerts/2004-denverruling.htm). I looked for any restrictions in the Municipal Code at http://www.pueblo.us/cgi-bin/gt/tpl_...mp;nav1=1& but I didn't find anything there. OC is legal in Pueblo.

    If I remember correctly (probably not), Pueblo banned OC in ALOT of public areas that are managed by the city. Thanks RMGO.org for the reference.

    Only where prohibited by notification properly posted at the entrance to the restricted area. No sign prohibiting oc, then it is perfectly legal anywhere in CO except Denver County, Denver. It is legal because it is not illegal. A fine distinction. The signs saying no guns make it illegal. Failing the sign, it is not illegal.

    Cops are typically very poor sources for what is/ isn't legal.
