Re: “Don’t undercut Colorado’s concealed-carry law,” Feb. 1 editorial.

As a gun owner and concealed-carry permit holder, I agree with your editorial that Colorado’s current gun-carry laws should remain in effect. The only changes I would like to see would be to allow permit holders to skip the background check during retail gun purchases and allow private gun sales between permit holders with a bill of sale listing both parties’ names, addresses and permit number.
