Teen Military Concealed Carry Bill Goes Forward
Colorado law currently allows those that are over the age of 21 to legally conceal carry firearms, but that could be changing for those under the age of 21 that serve in the military soon thanks to a bill backed by some Senators of Colorado.
Senator John Cooke of Greeley said that his bill recognizes those who often serve the country in wars abroad by allowing them to better defend themselves against crime at home.
The bill will pass state Senate after a third vote, where it will move on to House vote. Vicky Marbles of Fort Collins and other Republican senators argues that more guns and bullets in the hands of our trained military would make a safer society. However, the Democrats disputed the argument and were outvoted.
I am actually kind of surprised that members of the armed forces under the age of 21 are not allowed to conceal carry. They probably have the most training out of the average citizen. What do you think?
