These are the CCW Permit requirements in Colorado today. They sound reasonable, smart and something Georgia could easily move too as well. Anybody have additions or suggestions for the list?

"To qualify for concealed carry licenses, Colorado residents are screened by their local sheriffs for misdemeanors and municipal court convictions via locally maintained databases that involve and include:

* Drugs

* Alcohol or violence that will disqualify a citizen.

* Mental health contacts.

* 911 calls that do not result in an arrest.

* A history of aggressive driving.

* Juvenile arrest records.

* Plea agreements that result in deferred sentences.

* Restraining orders in civil cases.

* Reports that a person is a danger to himself or others."

It's easy to see how each of these would be a Red Flag to law enforcement that giving a CCW Permit is probably not in the public's best interest. The more you study the list, the more common sense each one becomes. I really like it, comprehensive, but not overboard.

Do you write for the Times Union? The title has absolutely nothing to do with the post.

So if you make a 911 call that someone has broken into your home and they do not make an arrest, that would prevent you from having a permit...... I speed so therefore no permit......drink beer no permit......was a screwed up kid no permit for you...

* Drugs

So, a college kid gets busted with a joint at a frat party and is required to spend the rest of his life unarmed?

* Alcohol or violence that will disqualify a citizen.

You get a DUI on your way home from office Christmas party and you are therefor stripped of your 2nd Amendment rights?

* Mental health contacts.

In law enforcement circles, "mental health contacts" generally means mandated psychiatric consultation following an arrest involving erratic behavior. However, Lib-scum hope it means that anyone with a prescription for ANY psychiatric drug will be deprived of their 2nd Amendment rights. Depressed? Suck it up or be disarmed.

* 911 calls that do not result in an arrest.

WTF? Cops arrive too late to catch the guy who broke into your car? Tough shit - no gun for you!

* A history of aggressive driving.

This one, if by "history," you mean charges and convictions, might have some merit.

* Juvenile arrest records.
16 y/o girl shoplifts a lipstick? No. 17 y/o thug commits armed robbery? Hell yes!

* Plea agreements that result in deferred sentences.

No. Deferred sentences connote non-violent offenses.

* Restraining orders in civil cases.

Possibly. A love sick fool who persists in having a dozen roses delivered to woman's work-site every day is qualitatively different than threatening stalker.

* Reports that a person is a danger to himself or others."

"Reports," as required by law by a mental health professional who has assessed an individual as such are an entirely different matter than calls from political /ideological enemies. The objective of the poster is of course to use this provision to establish a virtual Gulag of un-armed conservatives.

And you Commie-Lib sons-of-bitches wonder why we don't trust you. Please!

Yes, the new proposed rules are vastly preferable to the ongoing killings tearing this country up.
