Concealed Carry Permit

Colorado is what the gun training industry calls a shall issue state. In this shall issue state, the state of Colorado does not issue the concealed carry permit. The permits are issued by each county sheriff and the rules are the same everywhere in the state. The Concealed Carry Permit has to be issued to any individual that qualifies by the guidelines in the statute. The Concealed Carry Permit process in Pueblo,Colorado is very simple and is listed below.

New Gun Laws in Colorado-No real effect on Concealed Carry Training

concealed carry trainingConcealed Carry Training

Colorado’s new gun laws have no real effect on Concealed Carry Training in the state. The one small change is  that no concealed carry training is allowed to take place on the internet. This is not a problem for most concealed carry training candidates because they want to take a concealed carry training class locally from an instructor that is qualified to give that type of class. The big reason these changes were made was that legislators  felt a training class in person with hands on gun training was more appropriate. I think hands on gun training is very important. Many people have become complacent about gun handling and safety rules. They know them alright but when asked to perform these simple tasks with a gun many fail. Just take for example the loading and unloading of a semi-auto pistol. Step number 1 is always remove the magazine (not Clip) first. The reason is… remove the ammunition supply so that the only round you are dealing with is the one in the chamber. You would be surprised at how many people pull the slide back first to see if the pistol is loaded.

Colorado a Shall Issue Concealed Carry Permit State

Shall Issue Concealed CarryShall Issue Concealed Carry Permit State

Did you know that Colorado is a Shall Issue Concealed Carry Permit State! Well it is. What that means to you is that if you are eligible to have a concealed carry permit under the current guidelines of the law, the state must give you one. Unlike  some of the May Issue States they can make up any reason for not allowing you to have a permit.

A Shall-Issue jurisdiction is one that requires a permit to carry a concealed handgun, but where the granting of such permits is subject only to meeting determinate criteria laid out in the law; the granting authority has no discretion in the awarding of the permits, and there is no requirement of the applicant to demonstrate “good cause”. The laws in a Shall-Issue jurisdiction typically state that a granting authority shall issue a permit if the criteria are met, as opposed to laws in which the authority may issue a permit at their discretion.

Typical permit requirements include residency, minimum age, submitting fingerprints, passing a computerized instant background check (or a more comprehensive manual background check), attending a certified handgun/firearm safety class, passing a practical qualification demonstrating handgun proficiency, and paying a required fee. These requirements vary widely by jurisdiction, with some having few or none of these and others having most or all.

The following are undisputed Shall-Issue Concealed Carry States: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee,Texas, Utah,Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming .

May Issue Concealed Carry Permit State

A May-Issue jurisdiction is one that requires a permit to carry a concealed handgun, and where the granting of such permits is partially at the discretion of local authorities (frequently the sheriff’s department or police), with a few states consolidating this discretionary power under state-level law enforcement. The law typically states that a granting authority “may issue” a permit if various criteria are met, or that the permit applicant must have “good cause” (or similar) to carry a concealed weapon. In most such situations, self-defense in and of itself oftentimes does not satisfy the “good cause” requirement.

The following are “may-issue” states: AlabamaCaliforniaConnecticutDelaware,HawaiiMarylandMassachusettsNew JerseyNew York, and Rhode Island.
