A woman participates in a concealed-carry class at the Centennial Gun Club shooting range on July 27, 2013. To obtain a concealed-carry permit, Coloradans must go through a background check and prove that they have been trained in the handling of firearms. (Denver Post file)
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.
