Yes. And if a place denies carry they are required to have security on duty and metal detectors. This is why I was calling for a class action suit against Aurora and the movie theater.beastmode986 said:Thats ridiculous, doesn't Colorado have a law saying city law cannot contradict state law?
Didn't they do just this by arresting this guy for open carry?? In the link above, he openly carried in a movie theater and was Arrested. What am I missing here?Good luck getting any "public servants" prosecuted for violating the preemption clause or any other 2A related laws.
I would actually prefer that all openly carried. I feel more comfortable knowing who has a firearm on them than trying see them printing or guessingThis is an interesting discussion, but my question is: "Why would you want to carry openly?"
We've always had that right in Wyoming, and nobody carried openly.
We've been fighting for a hundred years for the right to carry CONCEALED.
Open carry makes you look like a "macho wannabe" to the public, and just invites some thug to get the drop on you from behind and steal your gun.
We should have the right to carry openly, of course, but I just can't understand why anyone would want to do it.
What am I missing?
So I guess that rules out just about anything a person can get their hand on?Section 38-237(b)(1) of Thornton's Municipal Code, under which Mapes was booked, reads: "It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly possess on or about the person or within such person's immediate reach any dangerous weapon."
goiod points. I too wish that everyone carried openly.I would actually prefer that all openly carried. I feel more comfortable knowing who has a firearm on them than trying see them printing or guessing
Unlike the folks and officers mentioned in the article I do not wet my pants when in sight of a firearm and what the hell kind of vague bs law is this anyhow
