"In Boulder, a city code makes it a crime to openly bring a gun into any city-owned or city-operated property -- such as open space, libraries and city buildings -- where posted signs state that firearms aren't allowed."
where posted signs state that firearms aren't allowed
Another Win for State Preemption! Have to post a sign at every public entrance or the open carry ban is unenforceable by law.
Everywhere but Denver! Open Carry on everybody!
By the way, I completely understand the need for local governance, but disagree with Boulder's reasoning. They are allowed, by State law, and should be allowed to ban open carry in their city buildings if the residents of Boulder believe that's what is best for them. Remember, representative governance- Boulder residents voted for these officials and now they are legislating. If you don't like what's happening in Boulder then change your vote! If you don't vote- you have almost no room to complain.
As a frequent traveler to Boulder, for hiking, I can say that I am glad to see the rights of permit holders recognized in this article. I wish the permit was free to everyone.
