The Colorado Senate State Affairs Committee has killed House Bill 11-1205 by a vote of 3 to 2 across partisan lines. No real surprise there. Under the bill’s provisions, Colorado residents could have carried a concealed weapon without applying for a permit. And the Rocky Mountain State can’t have that because . . . blind people could carry concealed. “Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle spoke against the bill and said he revoked a permit from a man with a brain injury who woke up in the night and began shooting at imaginary intruders,” reports durangoherald.com. “He also denied a permit to a blind man who wanted to carry a hidden gun to thwart harassment on the bus. Under HB 1205, both people would have carried concealed weapons because they believed they met the legal criteria, Pelle said.” I guess someone dodged dodging a bullet then.
