    Starbucks response to my letter

    imported post I dropped Starbucks a quick note letting them know that I support their stance on the OC issue, although I'm sure it's causing them some strife. I won't post their entire response, but I found this paragraph interesting: We have examined this issue through the lens of partner...

    Colorado Carry Seminar?

    imported post Since my run-in with CRPD, I've been working with CO Senator Mark Scheffel on the best way to respond to municipalities who harass OCers. He came up with an excellent suggestion that I want to toss to out to everyone. He suggested hosting a seminar/training session about...

    Airport Carry

    imported post Just wondering if anyone knows of any statute/ordinance prohibiting me from CCing while picking someone up at DIA. I probably won't even have to enter the terminal, but I know some other airports do searches just in pulling up to the pickup area. Any thoughts?
