Does anyone have any idea if guns are allowed at the National Western Stock Show? I very much want to go, but can't find any recent policies. I'd hate to get there and find I have to leave my gun in the car... I don't trust big cities for not getting my car broken in to. All the information I'm finding is from 2008 or earlier.
 

That's good. I was rather dismayed to find that Cheyenne Frontier Days did have tons of signs prohibiting weapons. You wouldn't think WY would do that...
 
I carried last year. Didn't look for signs so dont know what their policy is.

Generally, in Colorado, you can carry most places. A few specific places are off limits and include (but not limited to) K-12 schools, certain government facilities, portions of Denver International Airport, etc. Colorado has a zero tolerance for alcohol and concealed carry. So, National Western... As I understand our laws... They can post it up the yin-yang, and it doesn't matter because those signs are not legally recognized. It's more of a courtesy to obey. That said, if it's private property, and you are caught carrying and are asked to leave by a representative of the owner, you must or risk being cited for trespassing. Obviously, if you're carrying and you see metal detectors... Well, big hint. I have a metal lock box in my vehicle with a trigger lock inside should I need to secure my weapon for just such an occasion. I'm not a lawyer, and you shouldn't rely on my opinion or actions. Colorado's laws are available on the internet for your consideration.
 
Curious about your stance on Colorado having zero tolerance for alcohol and concealed carry. What do you mean by this?

He means that it's illegal to posses a weapon in Colorado while "under the influence" of alcohol. No criteria for "under the influence" is established in the law
 
I don't think that is what j he meant. Thanks for answering for him though.

Thanks guys!

I know the law for official places I can't carry, I just didn't know if this one was posted. I'd rather not leave it in the car in that area, and I'll be going with my son, so I'd hate to be asked to leave. If it did have a no gun policy, I wouldn't spend the money. And I don't drink at all when I'd have to drive anyway, so that's not an issue. :) If I remember correctly, you can't even have access to a gun while under the influence here in CO.
