New Gun Laws in Colorado
Understanding the New Laws
As of February 2013, Colorado passed new gun laws that may make it more difficult to own, obtain and possess a legal firearm. The revisions made to the existing laws and the new laws that were signed into effect limit the types of firearms that a person can purchase, where a person can carry the firearm, and how much and what types of ammunition can be purchased by Colorado citizens. If you were arrested for a gun crime, it is important that you retain the representation of a dedicated attorney who is not afraid to defend your rights and freedoms. Under these new laws, many law-abiding citizens may fall subject to a criminal charge simply because they were not aware of the new laws. Contact the Law Office of Christopher H. Cessna, LLC right away if you or a loved one has been arrested.
In the state of Colorado, a person is allowed to carry a firearm in their vehicle whether it is unloaded or loaded as well as possess a gun in their home or place of business. The firearm can be used for personal protection as well as hunting during legal hunting seasons. All individuals who do not have a concealed carry permit (CCP) may not carry the weapon concealed on them into a home, business or hotel. Concealed carry permits are available to law abiding citizens under the Gun Control Act of 1968. The state also recognizes gun-free zones, and even lawfully abiding CCP holders may not carry weapons onto these properties or specific locations. While the state prohibits gun registration, all guns must be obtained legally after a background check is completed.
