Colorado legislature votes down concealed carry without permit

DENVER - A bill in the Colorado legislature that would have let people carry concealed handguns without a permit has effectively been killed.

After being passed by the Colorado Senate, the House State, Veterans and Military Affairs committee voted to indefinitely postpone any action on SB18-097.

Six Democrats voted in favor of killing the bill, three Republicans voted against.

The bill drew strong reactions on our Facebook page when it passed the Senate. As written, it would have let legal gun owners over the age of 21 carry concealed handguns without any extra permits.
