Colorado does not prohibit the open carrying of handguns or long guns in public, and no permit or license is required.
Local governments may enact regulations prohibiting open carrying of firearms in a building or specific area within the local government’s jurisdiction, as long as signs are posted to that effect.1
For a comprehensive discussion of this issue, see our Open Carrying policy summary.
