I heard on the radio the other day that Colorado has the highest denial rate for gun purchases because they will deny you if you just have an arrest record without a conviction. They failed to mention if you supply them the proper paper work stating that you were not convicted you can reverse the denial. I know because I had to do it twice. I was arrested ten years ago for a felony offense that never went to trial it was dropped by the DA. I had to go through hell and high water to procure the necessary documents to reverse it. Archive records,calling the CBI and the police department. Anybody else have to do this?

Do they not go through the FBI for checks out there? or is there an additional CO state check?

They go through the C.B.I Colorado Bureau of Investigations.

I read in the Rocky Mountain News that out of 2,094 appeals 1,785 resulted in reversal. It sounds to me that the state needs to update it's records so that 1,785 law abiding citizens can exercise their constitutional rights.

When I was living up there, I recall where one had to go thru the courts (with a lawyer), and pay court costs to get your non-conviction arrest record wiped clean. Translation: Get your check book out. Colorado has become really paranoid since Owens became Governor: I'm glad I'm not there anymore. I wish Vickie Buckley hadn't died: She would have made a great Governor. Jay Arizona
