Concealed Guns in vehicles is it legal? My hero Patrick Swayze said it best in the movie “Roadhouse” opinions vary well not really. You will hear a lot of opinions in the coffee shop so let’s look at the statutes to make it clear.
See C.R.S. (Colorado Revised Statute) 18-12-204
(3) (a) A person who may lawfully possess a handgun may carry a handgun under the following circumstances without obtaining a permit and the handgun shall not be considered concealed:
(I) The handgun is in the possession of a person who is in a private automobile or in some other private means of conveyance and who carries the handgun for a legal use, including self-defense; or
(II) The handgun is in the possession of a person who is legally engaged in hunting activities within the state.
(b) The provisions of this subsection (3) shall not be construed to authorize the carrying of a handgun in violation of the provisions of section 18-12-105 or 18-12-105.5.
33-6-125. Possession of a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle.
It is unlawful to possess any firearm, other than a pistol or revolver, in or on any motor vehicle unless the chamber of such firearm is unloaded. For the purposes of this section, a “muzzle-loader” shall be considered unloaded if it is not primed, and, for such purpose, “primed” means having a percussion cap on the nipple or flint in the striker and powder in the flash pan.
Colorado prohibits any person from possessing or having under his or her control any firearm other than a handgun in or on any motor vehicle unless the chamber of the firearm is unloaded.
Subject to limited exceptions, the state prohibits any person from operating or riding on any snowmobile with a firearm in his or her possession unless the firearm is unloaded and enclosed in a carrying case.
For more information on this question check out the state laws for firearms at Lexis Nexis. Don’t rely on partial or improper information. Be a responsible gun owner and be sure for yourself, or take some additional training. I have training sessions thru out the week.
