I was shot by an over zealous rookie cop in '89, robber at gunpoint in '92 and '97. I lived in a neighborhood where, two doors down, the police actually dated the bullet holes in the house to identify the new ones. They just used a permanent marker. I thought, because of some indiscretions in the '70s when I was a young man, I would not be able to acquire a CCW.
Moving from that neighborhood to an apartment in a large metro area I really began to pay attention. Over the last six years, as things got worse, I looked into carry laws in Colorado, applied for a permit and now, legally, carry my G23 whenever I leave the apt. Even to do the laundry. Certain neighbors know to call me if they have a problem, only after calling 911.
I know and follow all the laws of the state of Colorado and keep up with local municipal ordinances. I carry wherever legal and ignore and attempts to skirt my right to keep and bear arms.
I have made a conscious decision to carry, train, and be ready to protect myself, my family, and any close to me from what I can only describe as the fall from grace of this country.
God Bless America
