Colorado Senate approves concealed carry without permit, measure fails in House

Posted: Updated:

For the 2018 Colorado Legislative session the Colorado Senate narrowly approved SB 18-097, which called for allowing the carrying of a concealed handgun without a permit. 

The bill would allow anyone 21-years of age or older who is allowed to carry a handgun legally to do so in a concealed manner. The sponsors of the bill reinforced current laws which prevent the carrying of a weapon in schools and universities within the bill language.

SB18-097 passed the third reading in the Senate by a 18-17 vote.

It then moved into the House committee for discussion, put instead of voting on the measure, the the State, Veterans and Military Affairs committee voted 6-3 for a reverse roll call. Ending any further discussion on the matter this session.

It was doubtful the measure would pass any readings in the full House or if Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper would have signed it into law.

    The face of downtown Pueblo could change as we know it.  On Wednesday, the Orem Owlz announced they'd become the Pueblo Owlz come 2020. The new team is bringing a new stadium, three new hotels, and 400 new jobs.  For some Puebloans, the announcement is an exciting one with people hoping that the stadium will be great for family outings and the economy. For others though, this new business means they may have to say goodbye to their own.  Gene Ragulsky said,...
