    Actually it does not have to be concealed. 23-31-230 was added to cover any questions about motels but:

    SECTION 16-23-20 (15) a person while transferring a handgun directly from or to a vehicle and a location specified in this section where one may legally possess the handgun.
    16-23-20 covers handguns with or without a permit and says nothing about being concealed.

    I read is as carrying a handgun concealed between a vehicle and room with or without a permit. The subject line is the key here. "Carrying concealed weapons between automobile and accommodation." If it wasn't meant to carry without a permit why put it in the law. A permit allows someone to do this with or without this section.

    Well, getting back to the topic of the thread, I'm wondering if the guy would have been arrested if he had a CCW from either CO or a reciprocal state. My guess is no, because it's Pelosi, one of the most heartened antis in Congress.

    I don't disagree with you...I was just pointing out the fact that Sheraton has an asinine policy.

    The best idea is probably to check in, then bring your guns in using luggage that doesn't make it obvious. It's unfortunate but that's because of the times we live in, and the rampant ignorance.

    True, but violating a hotel policy, especially when hotels aren't off limits under the law, shouldn't have gotten him arrested. I'm pretty sure he could beat this if he tries.
