Thread: Trip in late May to Breckenridge

  1. Trip in late May to Breckenridge

    Going on a trip to Breckenridge area (will be staying IN Breckenridge) in late May. I know CO is reciprocal with KS, and there is no local pre-emption allowed over state law. The new laws won't affect me on mag capacity (I don't think I have one over 13-15 rounds anyway).

    My question deals more with the local attitudes, etc. What are those attitudes by the city PD? County Sheriff?

    I also know there are "no guns allowed" signage that business can put up. Are they consistent in appearance, posted in visible locations? Or are there those who will post them in "gotcha" locations? If you miss a sign - is that a misdemeanor or ??? For instance, was in OK last weekend, went into a business, and when I went out, saw a sticker on the door "No guns". Was a small 3" diameter self adhering vinyl sticker ON the door, so when it was opened, you wouldn't see it if you weren't the one that opened the door (as happened to me).

    Also - is it really possible to move around the city of Breckenridge at all, and not run afoul of the 1500' Fed GFZ around schools in that city, or any of the other cities nearby (Dillon, Frisco, Park City, Leadville).

    Any other items of note that might be more "personal experience"?

    Thanks.

    Since you are carrying concealed you shouldn't have much of a problem. A sign must be posted at every entrance no size specification. As long as you don't wander onto school property you are ok.

    The signs at businesses have no teeth behind them. If they discover you carrying they can ask you to leave the property. If you comply it ends there, but if you don't you can be charged with trespass.

    As for schools CO Law only applies to school property, there is no buffer zone. The Summit County (Breckenridge) Sheriff is pro 2A.

  5. Hi KSShooter,

    I live in Breckenridge and have my CCW so I should be able to help you a little.

    The authorities here in Summit County are very gun friendly. You will often see, and have conversations with the Sheriff at our local community shooting range.

    I've driven past many schools while concealing but would never enter a school property with my firearm. I believe grizzerr is correct that the law applies to school property only.

    I rarely see stickers on any business doors around Breckenridge, or the rest of Summit County. But as stated, they can just ask you to leave.

    Enjoy your time in Breckenridge. We love our beautiful town and by May it should actually stop snowing!

    Dave.

  6. A few more questions...

    Does Colorado have preemption when it comes to local municipalities, etc. from passing other ordinances/laws regarding firearms when it comes to CC? Not talking about Open Carry, just Concealed Carry. I've read 29-11.7-101, and as is so common with "legalese", it makes it sound as if the law ONLY applies to the transportation of firearms within a vehicle/conveyance. Doesn't seem to really specify walking around while CC. I'll be going to Denver for a day or so, but most time will be spent in the Breckenridge/Fairplay/Dillon/Avon/Leadville areas. So - preemption applies to, and covers CC? Or not?

    I'm asking because it came up on another board, and one person was hassled by the cops in Denver. Not arrested, etc. as I believe they knew they were in the wrong - but would like some confirmation here.

    Thanks.

  7. Oh - one other thing - is CC in a place that serves liquor prohibited? I don't drink, but might eat at some restaurant that serves liquor and CC. Any issue there as long as one does not partake? I'm not talking about bars - just restaurants that serve liquor.

    There is state preemption throughout the state, except in Denver they act like it doesn't exist. My recommendation is avoid going there if possible.

    In Colorado you can CC in restaurants, bars and even drink as long as you don't go over the legal limit.

    You sure?

    18-12-106. Prohibited use of weapons

    (1) A person commits a class 2 misdemeanor if:

    (d) The person has in his or her possession a firearm while the person is under the influence of intoxicating liquor or of a controlled substance, as defined in section 18-18-102 (5). Possession of a permit issued under section 18-12-105.1, as it existed prior to its repeal, or possession of a permit or a temporary emergency permit issued pursuant to part 2 of this article is no defense to a violation of this subsection (1).

    Yes I am but you're correct DesertEagle, "under the influence", is determined by the legal limits of the law which currently in Colorado are .08 for alcohol or 5 nanograms THC per milliliter of blood. There are no other restrictions for CCW in a liquor establishment.

    It's simple don't get intoxicated.

  11. Hi. I live and periodically ccw in breck too.

    These links may be helpful. See title 6 , chapter 3 , article E , section 4, 5 and 10. Sorry, iPad won't parse individual links to the pages for some reason.

    I believe according to section 5 bar/resturant carry is prohibited.

    Sterling Codifiers, Inc.

    You can ccw in Denver proper,but be careful not to print. They don't take kindly to that. Denver is a home rule city, so they can make their own firearm laws.

    I would also encourage you NOT to drink while carrying. It is illegal according to he letter of the law.

    Enjoy our town!
