Colorado Right to Carry is Protected Once Again
Colorado – -(AmmoLand.com)- Thanks to the efforts of Larimer County Commissioner Tom Donnelly and the staff at Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, there was no confusion about the right of citizens to carry concealed handguns at this weekend's Republican State Convention.
Just weeks ago, RMGO activists noted that the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland — the site for the 2010 Republican State Convention — listed all firearms, including those carried by permit holders, as being banned at that facility.
One problem: it's a taxpayer-built and owned facility, and state law doesn't allow them to ban concealed carry.
RMGO staff talked to the managers of that facility, who were unwilling to budge, so we contacted the ultimate authority for that facility, namely a County Commissioner.
Commissioner Tom Donnelly acted within minutes of finding out about this attempt to discourage self defense.
And just like that, within hours of finding out about this ban, RMGO — and more notably, Tom Donnelly — fixed it.
If you run into Commissioner Donnelly in the future, thank him.
