  • Need some LE knowledge

    I have a question about transporting firearms. I don't have a car, and it's rare --no-- next to impossible to find people who are willing to pick me up and take me to a shooting range. I want to purchase a new gun, but I'm not really close enough to any place where I could buy one that I could ride my bike to. My question is, if I took the bus to and from where ever I decided make this purchase, would that be a huge no-no? It's not like the gun would be loaded, it would be in a case, in my backpack and I would only have it with me to transport it home. I'm not really sure what the law says on this and I don't want to do anything illegal, especially when it comes to firearms. Please help!

    Keep the ammunition separate from the gun and if you get stopped tell the officer you have an unloaded firearm in your bag and you should be fine.

      Disclaimer: I am not in law enforcement.

      But I looked this up in CRS, 18-9-118: Firearms, explosives, or incendiary devices in facilities of public transportation:

      "A person commits a class 6 felony if, without legal authority, he has any loaded firearm or explosive or incendiary device, as defined in section 9-7-103, CRS, in his possession in, or carries, brings, or causes to be carried or brought any of such items into, any facility of public transportation, as defined in section 18-9-115 (4)."

      It clearly specifies LOADED firearm. I think you're fine if you have it unloaded, cased, and in your backpack. Nobody's even going to know.

      However, I wouldn't walk out of the gun store and directly onto the bus in view of other passengers

      Btw, I also read CRS 18-9-115, Endangering public transportation. Basically, just don't pull out your new gun and threaten anyone with it on your way home

      Happy shopping!!!

        Oh, I also checked the RTD website, rtd-denver.com: Public Notices: Use of Facilities Policy and Application Form...didn't find anything there prohibiting you from transporting an unloaded firearm.

          again, you will be fine. theres no law against transporting a firearm.. just carrying concealed without the proper permit.
