If you do not feel comfortable in an establishment when a person is present that is lawfully armed, according to their 2nd Amendment rights, and Colorado law, you are more than welcome to remove yourself from some said establishment. You, however, do not have the right to infringe on their Constitutional right to “keep and bear arms”, unless you are the owner of that private property where the armed person is present. The fact that a badge or uniform is not visible to you, means nothing. Law enforcement personnel are not the only people who may lawfully be armed in this state and in this nation. Have you ever heard of undercover or off-duty police? More importantly, the law allows for the average, law-abiding, citizen to keep and bear arms, not just law enforcement. As far as comfort goes, a person who exercises their 2nd Amendment right is present to protect themselves, their loved ones and the innocents around them. Rest assured, you’re safer when someone present is armed then when the only armed people are the bad guys and law enforcement, who would not be there until they can race through the city to arrive at your location after a bad incident has occured.

the difference between a Liberal and a Conservative is in how they deal with things. If a Conservative sees a rattlesnake on the road he decides he doesn’t like rattlesnakes and walks around it leaving it alone. If a Liberal sees a rattlesnake on the road he tries to legislate the rattlesnakes rights away to be on the road that he seems to think he built with all our money. Then he tries to have rattlesnakes banned out of existence because he doesn’t feel his kids are safe with them around. Now just who is the better teacher of life’s lessons? Mr. Bright

Thank you Peter! I agree 100%!!
