Colorado –-(Ammoland.com)- As you may know, Colorado state law doesn’t allow a taxpayer-funded facility to ban concealed carry (i.e. they think you shouldn’t be able to defend yourself).
Based on that law, Rocky Mountain Gun Owners filed a complaint against Colorado State University two years ago, and won.
This week, the same lawyer who filed against CSU again represented Rocky Mountain Gun Owners members by filing a lawsuit against Northern Colorado Medical Center (NCMC) in Greeley.
NCMC is a county-owned hospital, and bans permit holders (in fact, all firearms) from entering that facility, though they do not have the required metal detectors and security personnel at every entrance.
Put simply, they can’t do that.
As of this moment, NCMC is a Criminal Safezone. You may never set foot in NCMC, but this is a direct assault on your Second Amendment rights, and it’s happening all across Colorado — illegally.
If RMGO prevails, law-abiding gun owners in Colorado will be allowed to carry in NCMC to protect themselves and their families from any violent criminal who would seek to do them harm.
It will send a message to every (illegally) gun-banning facility.
Make no mistake about it, this is a lawsuit to put ALL taxpayer-funded facilities on notice: RMGO will sue if you violate the Second Amendment rights of Colorado gun owners.
Gun owners in Colorado should be outraged by this gross violation of state law and our Second Amendment rights.
You and I need to make an example of NCMC — that banning guns in taxpayer-funded facilities will not be tolerated in Colorado.
It’s not only detrimental to the safety of law-abiding citizens, but it shows a blatant disregard for the law. And we worked too hard to set the law to allow unelected bureaucrats to set policies that violate the law.
Thanks again for your passionate commitment to defending and protecting our Second Amendment rights. I’ll be sure to keep you updated.For freedom, Dudley Brown
