    So your out and about OC. Where does Denver city / county start and stop EXACTLY?

    Check Here... http://www.denvergov.org/DenverMaps/...ghborhoods.pdf

    It's a PDF, blow it up to 400% and you'll have the exact street. This is important to me as I'm skirting the edges often. Thought it might help others too.



    CARRY ON !!!

    There's also some Denver/County property exterior to the main borders. I forget what those are exactly.

    Of course there are Denver Mountain Parks. Red Rocks and Lookout Mountain are examples of Denver City/County owned property. Thus those properties fall under Denver City/County laws which ban the open carry of.....

    Search this Colorado Section for Denver Mountain Parks and you will find many links posted by many users. Denver Mountain Parks do Not need to properly Post with Signage. They are Denver by default; thus exempt from needing signs. Open Carry is lawfully banned. Don't make this mistake because it will cost you big time.

    Darn now that I look at this map at 600%.... Guys check out how Surrounded I am by Denver. The regular green inner suburb streets signs don't change that I notice. The lake pretty much marks my crib.

    Never knew exactly How Close I was. Always thought the boarder was Sheridan to the East and nothing to the South.

    I absolutely agree ---- It was not my intent to suggest this was all encompassing. Just a general frame of reference that I use when I'm close to Denver City/ County. Just one more tool in the MANY we need to use.

    Hopefully next year this map will be unnecessary. However, thanks for the info CRCowboy, I spend a good amount of time in Denver and I've been looking for a comprehensive map that is a permanent fixture on a website.

    Next year? If you were fighting the Constitutionality of the Denver prohibition.. what argument would you use? Denver used Homerule and RTKBA supports used Colorado Bill or Rights. It was a match vote by our justices; are you hoping for the same debate with a different outcome?

    The ban on OC in Denver is unconstitutional simply by the Colorado constitution itself and HOPEFULLY (kind of a lot of hope in that) after the elections this year the people will be able to repeal the ban.

    Are you introducing legislation this year, Zack? Are you counting on RMGO to introduce legislation? Did you know that many of the western states have public "voter initiative" legislation? The east coast and southern states traditionally do not support this option. In those states only a representative may introduce legislation. Loving Colorado, aren't we all?

    I'm not a lawyer or anyone that would know how to introduce legislation. However, it is good to know and I certainly hope that there will be more officials that are elected this year that are pro-gun on every front. Also, I hope that someone with the knowledge base and the ability will push not only the repeal of the OC ban in Denver, but also push for constitutional carry laws that would eliminate the need for a permit to conceal. I think having to pay hundreds of dollars in order to be able to carry a firearm is outrageous; I don't think that people should do so without understanding all of the ramifications and without some training, but to make it illegal to do so without obtaining a piece of paper that says "look, I have permission" is something that should be eliminated.

    All of this is just my hope and opinion and probably worth less than what you paid for it, but there it is.

    "Also, I hope that someone with the knowledge base and the ability will push not only the repeal of the OC ban in Denver, but also push for constitutional carry laws that would eliminate the need for a permit to conceal."

    In Accordance with State Law; repealing the OC ban in Denver secures Constitutional rights. Colorado "Constitutional Carry" only protects open carry. Our Colorado Bill of Rights explicitly forbids the concealing of from protection.

    Section 13. Right to bear arms. The right of no person to keep and bear arms in defense of his home, person and property, or in aid of the civil power when thereto legally summoned, shall be called in question; but nothing herein contained shall be construed to justify the practice of carrying concealed weapons.

    Would you prefer if I used the term "Vermont" or "Alaska" carry laws? lol

    I was just using the new terminology as it sounds, to me, better than making it seem like only a single state has done away with concealed carry permits.

    Of course, doesnt matter if you are in a car correct?

    From my reading, you can OC if you are in a car, passing through?

    Better ask your lawyer for the official legal statement. When we post links and laws and cite judges opinions; it's often brushed aside.
