One of the top reasons I love it here is the gun-related freedoms.
In NY, they wouldn't even let you hold a handgun in a store if you didn't have a permit already. A permit was 6 months and up to $500.
In CO, I can fondle any weapon any store sells, and buy a handgun without a permit for no additional charge.
Why so different?
If you take a look at the data, the gun control laws have limited gun crime amongst registered owners vs CO.
