    Its been my experience that some cops will tell you what puts them at an advantage regardless of the law.

    I also believe that this whole scenario can be avoided by simply not telling the cop you are armed unless you are asked. There is no legal requirement that you do so in Colorado

    Its never (again, IMO) a good idea to argue w/ a cop on the side of the road. If, during a traffic stop, a cop tells you that youve violated some law (beyond the traffic infraction) its in your best interest to stop talking and ask for a lawyer.

    If you feel that a cop is harassing you just ask him am I free to go? If he says you are leave if he says youre not, ask for a lawyer and shut up. I he is just busting your chops a lawyer is the last thing he wants in the mix and if hes serious and trying to get you to talk your self into an arrest you still are going to need a lawyer anyway
    See, it's mumbo jumbo like that and skinny little lizards like you thinking they the last dragon that gives Kung Fu a bad name.

    Lets try this again My bad.

    18-12-204. Permit Contents - Validity - Carrying Requirements.
    (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. State Preemption
    18-12-105.6. Limitation On Local Ordinances Regarding Firearms In Private Vehicles.
    (1) The general assembly hereby finds that:
    (a) A person carrying a weapon in a private automobile or other Private means of conveyance for hunting or for lawful protection of such Person's or another's person or property, as permitted in sections 18-12-105 (2) (b) and 18-12-105.5 (3) (c), may tend to travel within a county, city and county, or municipal jurisdiction or in or through different County, city and county, and municipal jurisdictions, en route to the Person's destination; (b) Inconsistent laws exist in local jurisdictions with regard to the Circumstances under which weapons may be carried in automobiles and Other private means of conveyance; (c) This inconsistency creates a confusing patchwork of laws that Unfairly subjects a person who lawfully travels with a weapon in or through One jurisdiction to criminal penalties because he or she travels within a jurisdiction or into or through another jurisdiction; (d) This inconsistency places citizens in the position of not knowing When they may be violating local laws while traveling within a jurisdiction or in, through, or between different jurisdictions, and Therefore being unable to avoid committing a crime.
    (2) (a)Based on the findings specified in subsection (1) of this Section, the general assembly concludes that the carrying of weapons in Private automobiles or other private means of conveyance for hunting or For lawful protection of a person's or another's person or property while Traveling into, or through, or within, a municipal, county, or city and County jurisdiction, regardless of the number of times the person stops in A jurisdiction, is a matter of statewide concern and is not an offense.
    (b) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no municipality, County, or city and county shall have the authority to enact or enforce any Ordinance or resolution that would restrict a person's ability to travel with A weapon in a private automobile or other private means of conveyance FOR HUNTING OR for lawful protection of a person's or another's person or Property while traveling into, or through, or within, a

    municipal, county, Or city and county jurisdiction, regardless of the number of times the person Stops in a jurisdiction.
    Source: L. 2000: Entire section added, p. 1009, 2, effective August 2. L. 2003: Entire section amended, p. 651, 1, effective March 18.
    ANNOTATION
    Law reviews: For article, "In the Crosshairs: Colorado's New Gun Laws", see 33 Colo. Law. 11 (January 2004).
    This section clarifies the scope of 18-12-105 (2)(b) and indicates the general assembly's intent that local ordinances on carrying weapons in private vehicles be preempted only insofar as they conflict with the provisions of this section. Trinen v. City & County of Denver, 53 P.3d 754 (Colo. App. 2002).
    The use of the limiting language "into or through" in subsection (2) reflects the general assembly's intent not to restrict local weapons ordinances insofar as they apply to travel wholly within local jurisdictions. Trinen v. City & County of Denver, 53 P.3d 754 (Colo. App. 2002). (Decided under law as it existed prior to the 2003 amendments to subsection (2)).

    Yes, the official webpage is Colorado Revised Statutes - Office of Legislative Legal Services , you can see for yourself that the statutes quoted in this thread are the real thing. Note that vehicle carry is mentioned in 2 different statutes.
